'tis the season for slacking

Amidst the festive blur of last minute shopping, gift wrapping, stuffing my face with food, and lounging around like a slug without anything blogworthy to write about, I was able to work in a little range time.

(Colt Officers ACP)
(15 rounds of .45 at a distance of 25 feet)

This little beauty belongs to my friend Heath who, if I remember correctly, carried it on his wedding day. I'm honored he trusted me enough to loan it to me. It fits my hand perfectly, had a nice solid trigger, conceals well, and shoots...well, you can see for yourself how it shoots.

There will undoubtedly be more photos and a better range report soon, because, really...how could I resist shooting it again?

p.s. thank you, Heath

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jealous because it's still 23 days until I can shoot again :(

That's some scary good shooting there.

Very nice piece.

I love 1911-pattern guns and need to lay hands on an Officer and a Commander for size comparison. Government is just a touch large for daily carry. :)

Good pattern. You should tape that to the counter when your working the late return desk.

Me thinks you may have found the gun for you.

[Mental note] No snide comments about the shortcomings of the Dewey decimal system in Breda's presence...

That's some fine shootin' Annie...

Heath said...

Nice shooting!

Few guns just "fit" like a good ol' 1911.

I'm glad you're enjoying it. :)

I'm pleased to see you fine shooting and glad you got some range time, too. I'm also a big fan of 1911 platform auto chuckers but wonder, gee whiz, has Breda forsaken the Ruger P345!?

That was supposed to read, "Your fine shooting"...how embarrassing before the throne of letters!

Well done!

I can almost hear the crack of a smirking grin... even from here.

You clearly have talents.

Well, Jeff Cooper says that while good, and it's a 1911, the Officer size is just too innacurate for a reliable carry gun and should be avoid for that purpose.

Unless, of course, you are a dead-eye librarian that can practically cloverleaf with the model.

DANG you get better and better with the shooty goodness.

My goal now is: "Be HALF as accurate as Breda and you'll be 3x more accurate than you are now."

You and me both NJT. Awesome shooting Breda! You're destined to own a 1911.
