    Finally. This is the fourth time I've gone to M9 qual. Every time I've missed it by 1 or 2 shots. This time the trigger sucked less than usual.

    Score: 45/30/11 FTW :big grin:

    Air Force M9. (Beretta 92. Hate that gun.)

    45 shots.

    Target like this:

    Edit: THIS DORK IS NOT ME. :rofl:


    15"-ish circle in the center of chest, 6"-ish circle in the head.

    Qualification requires 35 rounds on the paper.
    Expert requires 41 on paper, 26 in the big circle and 6 in the small.
    My score was 45/30/11. :)

    Oh. First 9 shots were at 5 yards. That was easy. I had a nearly one-hole group. Push back to 15 for 30 shots, then the final 6 at 25 yards.

    A lot of it was draw-two-to-the-body-one-to-the-head with an 8-second limit, or the lean out from cover, 2 & 1, return to cover in 10 seconds.

    I kept having to remind myself to slow down. :hs:

    Good job man. I love how practically everyone in the military fucking hates that gun. :rofl:

    I don't think its a bad gun, actually. I just don't think its the best choice for military duty.

    The damn double action pull sucks ass. I hate double action. And the fact that all kinds of inexperienced people shoot these weapons almost every day and give them only a cursory cleaning irritates me.

    Military should go back to the 1911. Makes me wish I was special forces. :hs:

    Okay. I apologize for the INCREDIBLE delay in posting a pic.



    I shot expert with the M-16 back in August, also. :)

    M-16 @ 25 meters. Slow fire because they gave us shitty soft plastic bullets that kept misfeeding.
    M-9 course of fire was as described above.

    A bill drill is drawing and firing 6 shots at a target as fast as you can. Concentrating on the front sight. It's a good drill to use to get over flinching and how to track the front sight. also allows you to work on trigger prep/reset, etc.

    I like using it for breaking a gun in or when I'm trying to tune my guns springs and ammo.
