We got to the range this morning, and promptly began our annual qualifications, using the Louisiana POST course. PawPaw qualified easily with his service pistol, then after the targets were scored and recorded, the range master asked if anyone wanted to shoot with other handguns. I qualified in the second order with my Kimber 1911, several points higher than I qualified with the service pistol. In the third firing order I was out on the line with my J-frame, and I dropped enough points with the snub nose that I didn't qualify. After that order, we cleaned the range and broke for lunch. The firearms instructor asked if anyone wanted to qualify with patrol rifles, and of course I posted a target and headed to the line. I qualified easily with the AR, and early in the afternoon we were released for the day.
I need to figure out what I'm doing wrong with the J-frame. A little practice and the qualification should come easily, but I haven't shot the Airweight as much as I have the other pistols. For those interested, the Louisiana POST handgun course is online here.
For the record, it was hot out there today. I'm soaked in sweat to my skivvies, and shortly I intend to remedy that situation.
