I had the opportunity to put a few more rounds through the Glock G19 Gen5 this past weekend at the Clackamas County Public Safety Training Center.
Saturday morning was busier than I was expecting, but it seems that the range has been pretty popular so far this year.
When I arrived, there were only the “endcap” lanes available…
…and I guess I must have appeared reasonably responsible, as I got assigned to Lane 10.
I’d limited myself to 50 rounds that day, figuring that I’d be back the next day for another 50.
Here’s how those 50 holes look like. The lower right target (yes, the target sheet is upside down, but it’s still the lower right) was engaged at 7 yards, and all others were at 10 yards. The 10 yard groups seem to have at least one “outlier” round. I believe that is attributed to a slight bit of flinching, almost always at the end of the magazine. It’s a weird anticipatory thing, so I’m trying to pull back mentally before taking the last shot.
And no walls were harmed, by me at least.
The following day, I returned to a much more mellow range, and since there were plenty of open lanes, no endcap this time.
The person to my left was sighting in a scope on his .22 LR at 25 yards. Here’s what my targets look like at 10 yards away:
It actually looks a slight bit larger than how it appears in the photo. And here’s the next 50 rounds through the G19:
Again, the lower right target was engaged at 7 yards, and the remainder at 10 yards. I’d say the groups were tighter on Sunday, and perhaps I am getting more used to the trigger, recoil, sights, and reset of the G19. So far I’ve put 200 rounds through the G19, and have not experienced any misfeeds, misfires, or other malfunctions.
