    Took my Beretta U22 Neos, vintage Whitney Wolverine, and Glock 21 to town today and had me a little range time.

    The Wolverine was a complete bust. Out of a 10 round mag, one failure to feed and 4 light strikes. My conclusion on the strikes is that the 1950's springs are crapped out and I need to replace them with new ones from Olympia Arms. Anyone disagree with this before I make and order?

    The Neos I had replaced the stock length barrel with a six inch barrel. It turned a good shooter into a great shooter. Here is my best target from 30 feet, two magazines. The rest I shot were similar.


    Then it was time to finally try out my new-to-me Glock 21. Only the second Glock I've ever shot, and only the third 45. Again from 30 feet.



    This was 11 shots, and I hope I punched the paper in several places twice as the alternative was I had to that never made the paper, and I was shooting better than that previously.

    This was me picking up the gun from the table and firing the entire mag as fast as I could. 8 out of 13 shots hit. I think if this was a bad guy, I would have spoiled his day.

    ...and heart...

    ...and liver...

    Whitney Wolverine? That's something you don't see every day, pretty cool!
    Did you seek it out or did it find you?

    Thank you. I wasn't unhappy with the first box out of the Glock. I flinched a little more than I was happy with. Dry firing, I'm rock steady. Put real bullets into the gun, that becomes a different story.

    I sought it out. Probably paid a little too much for it (no, I don't want to say :p), but they allowed me to make slow payments, so I now have one. I think I just need to give it a little more love. I'm going to write Olympia Arms (who make a pretty decent repro) and see if they have any ideas.
