View Full Version : Compacts At 50 Yards

01-15-2012, 9:13 AM
Yesterday I ventured over to the rifle range to shoot the SBR and make sure it's little red dot was still sighted in.

I thought, "What the hey?!" and decided to load up the CCO and give it a try.


I don't have pics, but even with my old eyes through trifocals, I was able to put most of 'em COM.

Who'da thunk it?

Now, I know 50 yd shooting with a full size 1911 is a common thing among bullseye shooters, but I'd never shot a pistol at that range before. It's FUN!

In fact, it was so much fun I hope to go back today or tomorrow with some darker targets (the big, off-white, IDPA outline paper are hard to see) and shoot with some match ammo (AND a spotting scope).

Great hobby, ain't it

When I was shooting PPC as a young officer, we shot double action revolvers out to 50 yards.

For full size service pistols 50 yards is still a std.

When I check my 1911's, Glocks, revolvers for accuracy , I check them at 50 yards.

I love plinking at the steel plates on the pistol side over at Angeles.

I can shoot 1" groups @ 25 yards, but 50 is pretty far for me lol. Practice practice practice !

Went back today with better targets and shot the LC9, too.

25 knot crosswind

50 yds

LC9 (It really ain't that hard once you get it on the paper.)

The Colt CCO at 50 yds (I think my trigger finger is pushing a lot of shots low/left.)

50 yds from the firing line

The Dinan took its place amidst the trucks

That is excellent shooting with a compact like the LC9!
