Took my R1 and some other guns out to the woods today to do some shooting. Gun still handles like a dream and feels great while shooting it. I had my three nieces with me and was teaching them how to shoot, but I was breaking them in with a 9mm. Then my 14 yr old niece wanted to give the R1 a try. She loved it. She actually shot it very well too. She put two of the seven rounds on a 10" target at 30 feet. The funny thing is that she was the most timid one of the three and now she can't wait to go again. Good times!
