Finally Went to the range tonite.......
« on: June 17, 2008, 08:04:02 PM »
Well, I had a small window of opportunity to shoot my new to me R9s tonite between 5:30-7:00pm...........

But the wife got home late and the kids needed a bath and dinner too and I had to eat and do a few other chores and lo and behold its 7:00pm and she's gotta go back out to a meeting...........

So all I've done so far to the new pup is FONDLE it :(

Gonna be a few more days before I get to shoot her.......

Tomorrow it shall be for my trip to fire my new R9s.  Got it yesterday and knew I wouldn't make it out to the range today due to work load and PC in the repair shop needs picked up tonight.  I think I can wait one more day.   8)

Glad to see you liked the extension.  I may try the other one before I decide whether or not to sell it.  

So, 25 yards, should be doable with sights, right?

Well...I won't sit here and cry but my range trip didn't happen yet.  I am pretty sure it will happen tomorrow morning around 11:00 but who can really know when you work with Oil and Gas companies.  If I was a fortune teller or seer of some sort I would have known at 11:00 today that it was gonna be a wasted day and I would have been better off taking off.  lol  However, since I am not a swami of any sort I had to put in a long day and not do anything.  All was postponed until 7:00 am tomorrow.  Should be done by 10:00 or 10:30.   :(

Yes indeed.  Finally made the range this morning.  Very pleased with my total of 24 rounds fired with this very nice R9s.  Had to hold it down some as I took five other pistols with me and had to fire all of them including my .380 Seecamp which just happened to be in my back pocket at the time.   I put about 250 rounds total down range in an hour.  Tired but very happy with the outing.  :)

sounds good. Tell us about the recoil difference between the R9 and the LWS 380.  Tom

It may be just me but I found little difference in recoil between the LWS-380 and the R9s.  I believe most of it balances out due to size and weight difference between the two pistols.  The R9s is a little bigger, a little heavier and I can get a better grip on it.  The Seecamp being so small and light with hardly 1-1/2 fingers holding the grips makes it a bit jumpy.  Ofcourse this can be fixed with a mag extension as I did with my P3At some 7 or 8 months ago.  Been so busy hunting pistols lately that I haven't had much time to deal with mags.
