    I’m pretty happy with this. I don’t own a gun, but I’ve shot with friends once or twice a year over the last few years. Went to the range with friends yesterday and used the pistol range. Middle and upper right are 9mm with red dot sight. Lower right is a .22 with iron sights. Left lower and upper are 9mm Beretta with iron sights.

    I don’t think that’s bad for someone with relatively no skill level and Bourbon shakes.

    Looks like fun... what kind of distance were you shooting from?

    I’m going to say 30 yards, but that’s an estimate. I’m not that knowledgeable, but the targets were at the far back of the range.

    When a subconsultant gives you a BassPro gift card for $100 and a contractor gives you a gift card for $100, you go and buy a Ruger LCP. Holy crap this thing is light. I really like it. I have pretty big hands - long fingers, but not meaty - and it feels good with the finger grip extension plate on. I've been carrying it in my front pocket in the little included sleeve holster. It barely weighs more than my cell phone. I haven't shot it yet, though. Will report back.

    LCP is a decent gun. The one I have is a little picky with ammo. It doesn't like Blazer at all, but doesn't have any issues I've found with brass or defensive loads.

    I imagine it would probably be fine with cheap ammo if I polished the feed ramp and things like that, but I've found ammo it likes so I don't really care.

    Good to know. I have all the .380 ammo I can ever shoot. It's law enforcement grade (Winchester), and I've never had trouble with it in my other two .380s.
