Had some friends waiting for me when I got home from work to do a little shooting.
I haven't really had a chance to shoot the Shield much since I got it, so today I put about 65 rounds through it.
Maybe it's me, maybe the gun just needed broke in a bit, but doggone if that thing ain't shooting better all the time.
I'm still a tad left, but I had a 26 round group less than 3 inches, and I think I'll tighten that up with more use.
Very happy with this gun, and not a bit sad I sold the Kahr CW9 to help fund it.
OH, and the weather this weekend was perfect, mid 50s to mid 60s, very little wind, sunny and bright all weekend.
I think I needed it.
Anyway, it was great to get out and do a little shooting.

Glad you got to go out Husk! I went yesterday for the first time in 6 months. Between work
and the back injury there just was too much time gone by. Back is better and day was nice so
we went and shot lots.

I finally got out today as well, temps in the low 60's, still some snow melting off which made where I shoot tricky in spots. Took two AR's, the WASR and the newest addition Glenfield 60 out to set scopes and red dots, mission accomplished as much as could be with crappy .22 ammo, next time will bring the good stuff.

Just 7 yards is what I was shooting at.
The Shield is a darn decent gun
