Default Larry Vickers Test and 45 acp.

Big fan of LV’s test, I will usually run it with whatever handguns I take to the range or that I?m training with that day.

With 9mm and 40 never have a problem passing the test, I challenge myself by trying to shoot a low time. 7 and low 8 second range for 9mm is the norm with 40 in the mid to high 8?s and low 9?s.

My problem is with 45acp, granted I have not been shooting a lot with it this year. So far I?ve only ran it 5 times with a 45, four 1911s and a full side M&P and failed it each time.

Today I shot it with my WC CQB, not from concealment but with a ALS retention holster. I was good and warm had already put about 100 rounds through the gun doing other various drills and quals. My draw felt solid and fast, got on target quickly. Had a good smooth rhythm going all eight rounds in the 10 for a score of 80, shot the darn X out. I thought I had it, until I glanced at my timer 10.27 failed again. It?s starting to get in my head now.

I also ran it with my Ruger Mark II, I know it?s cheating running that drill with 22?s but it?s fun. All 10 in the black with a 99 score in 5.77, with hardly any recoil you can shoot it smokin fast.

Think I?m just gonna have to start shooting my 45?s more, this is really starting to bug me. Anybody else run the Test with 45?s, wanna share their times and wisdom with me. I?ll take whatever I can get, gotta get past this.
Im a warmonger baby, I got blood in my eyes and I'm looking at you.
