Steel at 200 yards, P-10F, P-10S, bench and standing
« on: July 19, 2020, 05:54:02 PM »
I decided to shoot steel at 200 yards today, and it is a good thing I did, because the pistol range was booked up with a license to carry class.  Fortunately for me, there were some folks on the rifle range and the spotter helped me get locked in on the hold for the conditions we had today.  Not much wind, thankfully. 

Since I was shooting steel anyway, and I am tired of paper targets, I decided to try standing single hand at 200 and standing two handed at 200 with the P-10F.  I took a few shots with the P-10S standing single hand and that didn't go well, mainly because I haven't been practicing standing single hand with any pistol over the last few months.  The results with the P-10S, however were excellent compared to the P-10F, and that may come as a surprise to some of you, as it was to me. 

This video won't finish uploading until around 5:30pm MDT due to weekend YouTube overload.  The video is 12 minutes or so,  because I didn't edit out the dead time between shots.  I did edit out a bunch of dead time between the 5 and 10 round sequences, however.  The last 5 shots from a rest with the P-10F were a really good group, I think. 

Standing single hand at 200 yards is a mental challenge as well as a skill level challenge.   Mentally, because I had not tried it before and didn't have much hope of doing well, and a skill challenge because of lack of practice.  I miss the weight of the CZ 97B"E" when shooting standing single hand, that's for sure. 

I'm just glad my video equipment worked and I got to see the results when I got home.  The beauty of paper is that you have a physical record.  I like steel, however, because it is bigger! But having a spotter is really of great benefit when shooting steel.  I had never experienced first hand how much help a good spotter could be before today. 

Tomorrow is rifle day, I hope.  And I might actually clean the two pistols I've shot this trip. 

Edit to add--here is a 5 minute version of the video above, with some dead time and some less than stellar sequences cut.
