Get your mind out of the gutter... not those kind. I can't believe I even admit to being associated with you degenerates. I used, shot, my two STI Trojans today. After sitting around here for two months I figured it was about time that they started earning their keep. The son-in-law, along with one of his buddies who couldn't spell gun if you spotted him the G and the N drove me down the hill where we picked up my little 74 year old shooting buddy Deak and headed to the range. The first task on the schedule was to sight in both guns from a rest at twenty-five yards. With both the 9 and the .45 it didn't take more than fifteen minutes each and a few turns of a small Smith&Wesson screw driver to put five shot groups into the X-ring off a rest. I really don't think I've ever owned any automatics that have been this accurate out of the box. I only brought one flavor or .45's with us, 200 grain SWC's over 4 grains of Clays with Wolf primers. The Trojan ate 'em like an Ethiopian at a buffet. No reason to change anything alone those lines. Interested to see how the 225 grain RN over Power Pistol is going to do... just didn't have any with me. Things didn't go as smooth with the 9. Turns out that almost every primer was set high, high enough that the first hammer strike seated them then the second fired 'em. Unfortunately I really didn't pay attention when I loaded 'em, I just assumed the 1050 priming system was adjusted properly... never assume. Before people start crying WOLF, WOLF, WOLF... we also fired three-hundred .38 rounds out of Smith models 19 and 586 without a problem. All of those rounds were loaded out of the same small primer brick as the 9's. Unfortunately the primers are so high on the 9's they won't even sit flush on a table top. I'll call Dillon in the next day or two and let them walk me through adjusting the primer depth so it's no big deal. I did learn one other important lesson today, don't try shooting standing-up if your broken back isn't healed yet... it doesn't work. Even holding on to my walker with one hand didn't keep the shock of recoil from heading right to my back. Two magazines was all I could manage, the rest of the day was spent shooting over the chrono sitting down at the bench and clanging steel. Not a manly way to shoot by any means but the alternative was to stay at home sitting in the recliner. No thanks, I've seen all of that chair I care to see. All in all in was a very good day. Four hours may have been pushing it right now but if the weather is good next weekend I'll do it again... maybe then I'll be able to stand without the walker. Jack Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
