.22LR casings are .22 in diameter, but a .22 mag casing is larger, like .25 or .27.
Ahhh I see. Im gonna try that grip next time I go shooting.
A friend of mine thought it was maybe to brace up against the edge of a table or something.
Some lights/other rail stuff also can butt up against the linear platform.
I didnt like the vertical at first on my CZ duty 9mm, but it has grown on me.
It does leave a bit of room for the trigger finger to "hover" off/over the trigger- also allows room for thin gloves.
It is not advised. With your support hand fingers around the trigger guard, pressure from your support hand will push/pull the gun off target easier. It acts as a lever so any amount of incorrect pressure from your support hand is magnified.

Any shoot buffalo bore 9mm? Its 115 grain with a blistering 1400 fps:eek1
springfield says the XD9 can handle it,just lookig for someone who shot it.
Just playing around with some new autoresetting and knock down .22cal targets.

^^^ those are great
There's something about a .22 that just says "have a few giggles"
Down in the little gully at the bottom of our property where I shoot, a big elm fell across it a couple years ago. I now have a bunch of old parts, pots and pans, and pieces of scrap metal hung from the tree via mason's twine. PERFECTfor the .22 - pa-TING, pa-TING, pa-TING, and stuff just swings all over the place
Cool. I'd like to get to the point I have metal spinner targets for guns up to .357 or .30cal. To that extent I have targets up to .38 that won't get dented. But most my targets are for the 9mm.
I guess I never got the urge to shoot metal targets. I use to shoot beer cans for awhile but it is more fun for me now to see how small a group I can make on a paper target. But I know that the sound of bullets hitting metal turn many on.
For me it's more a matter of seeing the item react. I still do lots of paper working on accuracy but it's nice to just shoot and know it was a hit. Plus I paint mine so they show where you actually hit them.
It's just fun to shoot reactive targets. Small gongs at 200 yds or more.
Paint balls are fun too, I slapped together a stand for those.
I just like the noise, and seeing things move. The physical reaction blends nicely with the report and the recoil. Plus I'm a lousy shot so the Yes/No outcome is less discouraging
No way.. A judgmental reply to a gun pic on the web, that never happens..
Darn this is what happens when my wife leaves me alone during the day with too much free time.
Daddy got a new toy!

Yeah, this wasn't my first attempt either at making different spinner or reactive targets. I think this has been the most successful one and the one people enjoy the most.

S&W 1911. Yes? No? Maybe?
Is this 500 grade steel? So far I don't have anything that will survive a rifle well as I found out with the 7.62x54. :eek1
Lucky holes can be welded shut, it's when the plates get bent that I am screwed.
