Range Time

I went to Sharp Shooters pistol range (formerly Gilbert's Small Arms) on Monday with three or four objectives in mind. One, to test three new Wilson Combat magazines for the little Kimber .45 - they worked great.

Two, to get some trigger time for the Springfield 1911 9mm and the Papoose. No problems.

And three, to do more testing with the iPhone shot timer. This didn't work out so well.

The first thing to do is calibrate the unit's shot-sound threshold for each caliber, like this:

S = Start and E = End. The PPK is a .32ACP, by the way.

There were too many other shooters and the din was incredible. The unit couldn't pick out my .22 from the .357's blasting all around me.
