    I was in the neighborhood of The Arms Room today so I stopped in for some practice. They were busy as usual for a Saturday. I got lucky and drew lane 15, all the way at the end of the range. As I was setting up, some dude had a ka-boom a few lanes down. I didn't see what happened but the range-master pulled everyone off the line and went down range to retrieve parts. The guide rod and slide were 5-7 yards out.

    When we were given the all clear I stepped back up to the line and began practicing. Couple of magazines at 10 yards to warm up and then all the way out at 22.5 yards. More at 20, 15, 10, and 8. In total I shot 200 rounds of Tula with two flyers.

    Guess that makes me a 99%er since 99% of my shots were on target. The flyer at the top was out there at 22.5 yards. The one on the right was shooting left handed. (weak hand) I'm counting the two at the bottom because they're barely on the blue.

    I also shot a few rounds out of my carry gun, a KelTec PF-9. It broke and springs and stuff came flying out.

    EDIT: Almost forgot. When I was waiting for a lane, some dude was shooting an AR with a slide-fire stock. It was pretty neat. Fun way to burn up a LOT of ammo in a hurry. He was firing in bursts and it seemed quite controllable.

    I didn't see it happen and didn't get a close enough look to identify what it was. Nobody was hurt so that is a good thing.

    And glad you weren't hurt when it sounds like your kel-tec blew up on you!

    Kel-Tec PF9s are like that cheese you don't remember how long it has been in the fridge for. You never quite know if/when it is going to go bad.

    I am sooooo glad I don't have one of those anymore. I had so many issues out of mine, and got tired of sending it back to Kel-Tec.

    Anyhows, nice shooting. I had the typical low and to the left issue but have corrected it by adjusting my grip/technique.

    Obviously it was a Glock!


    Isn't that what we are expected to say on an XD site? ;)

    Hope guy wasn't hurt by the kaboom!
