Welcome to our newest forum, Range Reports.

Do you have a range report on a newly purchased gun? Then please post it in this forum so that members that do not visit all the vendor forums can benefit from your experiences!

Members can also discuss recent experiences at the range, good or bad.

This forum should also be used to plan a shooting event, get-together, or post upcoming events.

Last month's gun was a Bill Jordan model 19 S&W 4 inch .357. It has the ".357 magnum" stamping buffed off the barrel and "38 Special C'tg." etched there in instead. It still chambers and fires 357's. The gun shop said that the gun was from a batch made for the Brazilian Government that was never delivered. It cost $325 new.

It shot well offhand and would easily be competitive with a 625 in IDPA if one could reload fast with speedloaders. The best bench group while siting in was 1 1/2" at 25 yards, six shots and five into an inch.

This month's gunb is a ParaOrdnance 40 caliber LDA. As with most Paras, it shoots accurately and reliably with Wolff extra power springs in the magazines. Full magazine 16 shot groups off the bench at 25 yards are 3-4 inches. One can get one inch five shot groups every few tries.

Thr trigger is a bit like a PPC revolver, a Kahr or a Glock. One takes up a lot of easy slcak then pauses for a moment to get the sights perfectly aligned. A little more pull on the trigger cause it to break crisply. This is "staging" the trigger like a good PPC shooter and gives excellent results in combat courses of fire. The staging and release happens fast with practice and becomes quick and natural.

This gun will be fun to classify with in IDPA Stock Service Pistol class and IPSC Production class.
