It feels pretty good in my hand and I think I'm going to like carrying it- I really expected to be at least staying on the paper right out of the box.
Well, I was always a revolver type guy so DA triggers have always been comfort level for me. The Glock still takes work. Biggest thing I can say is since it's a long pull use it to your advantage and grip the gun with that trigger finger as you complete the trigger pull. Then release and reacquire. Hope that helps.

I would like a .45 silencer and a SBS (short barreled shotgun) by the time all is said an done.

The .22 can is a fun one because you can get one cheap (I paid $207 for mine) and they are quiet and cheap to shoot.
Thanks for the reminder! I created my trust and bought a .22 can last winter just because. Had planned on getting another can this year in 5.56. Since I count on adding a 7.62 to the collection in the next year or so, going ahead and buying the 7.62 can and just skipping a 5.56 sounds like the way to go.
Building something like you pictured will be the next winters project.

Now to start silencer shopping...

I just posted about that Sig. I'm considering the same one and a short-barreled rifle in 556/223 from Sig. What are you impressions with your .45 and do you have any experience with their rifles?

Its my 1st 1911 style pistol so I cannot compare it to any other 1911 as I have only shot a Colt Cup some years ago.
I can compare it to my Beretta 92FS 9mm which Ive shot about 2000 rounds. They are roughly the same size and weight dimensions.
The Sig handles better, to me, as there is less barrel climb and the trigger pull seems a bit lighter and smooth. I shot 2 magazines just past sunset and I appreciated the night sights as I was able to keep on target in the fading light. The grips may be beautiful or gaudy but they feel great. Ive got big hands and its nice not having to look for fatter aftermarket grips.
I know this is comparing apples to oranges but I really like this pistol. I'll have a better report after a few hundred rounds but i think you could do a lot worse for the money.

Ive got no experience with Sig rifles. If some kind soul wants to lend me theirs for a month I'll let you know.

In attempting precision shooting, you can check the flex on a scope by just looking at a long range target and pushing on the front with our hand. Most scopes will flex noticeably. This doesn't matter much if it comes back to the same aim point after each shot and the scope alignment doesn't change with temperature. I actually put a third ring on one of my scopes to help with the flex, but took it off when I couldn't see any difference in groups and was worried about the thermal effect related to the third ring, which encompassed the barrel, rather than the action.

Nice!

I highly recommend the VZ grips.

Have you been down to CZ Custom in Mesa yet to ogle the racegun pr0n?

trying my new gadget!

from some scrap in the backyard made a HEAVY DUTY target to take to "the range"!
Today put it to the test and it survive
It took a shot in the leg with a 12g slug, but even with that it came back home in one piece.
The target can handle slugs and 45-70 with ease!

Love both my CZ 9mms- a P07 duty, and an older 85B

You have good taste

Wow. Didn't realize there was much aftermarket support for CZ. I have to check that store out.

Gotta be careful shooting plate steel. Those rounds can come back at you. Had the jacket from a .357 bounce off of a brake disc rotor and partially imbed itself in my calf back in the 90's.

I would have to agree with thins....if the target is not flat, bits can do all kinds of strange things....and from quite a way back...I don't have a mark, but I sure did hear it.
