After a perfectly remarkable breakfast Sunday, Tam, Shootin' Budy, Turk and I were off to Eagle Creek Park Pistol Range.
For those of you just tuning in, Indy's vast city park has a (weekends only) public shooting range! (IMPD uses it five days a week). As befits a big park, it's a big range:
No, bigger than that; this is just Bay 1 of two identical areas!
I was shooting okay:
And here's the stable:
The H&R is new to my collection and has remarkably little felt recoil, more like an air pistol than a .22. Maybe it's the very small frame. All are nice but if I could only own one handgun, I'd take the High Standard over the rest: it's got good sights, I shoot well with it and it's never done anything but go "bang!" when I pull the trigger. (The Ruger/Pac-Lite is nice, but every so often it goes "jam," instead. I never liked jam.)
A morning well spent, several hundred rounds downrange.
