    Today at the range....

    Well I shouldn't say toy but I had a lot of fun!



    This is a total of 200 rounds of Beretta 96D .40 cal at a distance of 25 feet fresh out of the box.



    Later this week I will be trying out the Beretta CX4-STORM also in .40 I can't wait

    You got some 'splaining to do with the fliers at 25 feet, unless you were doing double-taps or one-handed or something

    But looks like we had fun!!!

    C.A.R. system of shooting. Along with some weak handed double taps. But still; 12 loose out of 200 and all in the zone.

    This guy just had a really bad day!

    Eitherway Mohamad won't be making Slushes any time soon!

    Oh, ok... Yeah, we've had a couple of point shooting advocates come around these parts. It's really strange-feeling shooting with a different finger.

    (I don't know how much CAR has to do with that but I see it's on the point shooting web site - Gives me something to read this weekend)

    Actually it was one handed quadruple taps while standing on my head shooting behind me while looking through a mirror and drinking a beer!

    Thanks for the link - I'll check it out!

    Ha ha - the beer part sounds like some buddies who went to shoot in "another state" shall we say... After they finished the match they decided they needed a beer, but the RO saw 'em hanging around the observer area and made them pour the beer out, so they came back with Crown Royal & 7-Up in a 7-up can

    As a range instructor, I have seen many problems with the CAR system. Especially when they get past the 10 to 15 yard marker. They tend start missing the target, especially under stress conditions. Then they revert to the regular way of shooting.

    But, if it works for you, cool.

    When you find yourself in a hole............QUIT DIGGING!!!!!!!!!

    OK guys time to come clean. I am not only a police officer but I am also a big time movie star. I am using my real photo as my avatar now. Please NO autographs!!!!

    C.A.R. is a very hard system of shooting to get down. There are only about 40 Masters World Wide. I am being trained in it by one of them. It's not for long range shoots but for CQB allowing for a quick transition into an isocilies (spelled worng I think) stance or modified weaver.

    It keeps the weapon close to you giving better protection and retention and gives you more defense measures if they should get in close and it's always fun to punch an idiot between the eye with your barrel.

    There is no perfect shooting system; if there was we'd all be using it. What works for one wont work for another. Ive been shooting since I was 5 (from a redneck famlily of gun toting alcoholics) and trying to shot this system is taxing.

    It takes a lot of pratice; it you have a laser this is great because your don't shooting blind. Even though your not bringing your sites to bear the laser will light the way for ya!


    But still not to bad for not having shot in 6 years and using a gun for the first time!
