first time at the range shot a G26/19 24/7 and 226
went to the range today, first time ever shooting a pistol, kinda odd since I was only shooting paper people but it was a little exciting I guess, and I had a sort of butterfly feeling while loading the first clip. went away for the rest, but I didnt think Id get that weird feeling just shooting at the range for the first time
my friends got a taurus 24/7 9mm, and even though I plan on getting something bigger, I rented 9's so we could shoot the same ammo.
the first target was the small glock G26, the guy told me that its a pain to hold onto, but I didnt have any trouble with it. I didnt really try to be too accurate, I quickly lined my first shot up and took it and gave myself probably no more than aroud a half a second to line up the next shots. same target I then shot a clip out of his gun. the 24/7, and I like the trigger on the glock much more, not so much that it feels like a shorter pull, just that you actually feel the trigger the whole time. the taurus has no resistance til the end and then there it is.
with his I used about the same technique, no real effort on being very accurate.
2nd target I shot with a G19, I blasted off the first half of the clip as fast as I could.... all over the place as you can tell. then, with my last 6 shots I lined up and got all 6 right in the center. then I loaded the clip again and shot all of them at the little guy in the upper right corner. I didnt take as much time to line up the shots as the 6 in the center, but I did take maybe just under a second each. 9 or 10 got him (theres a group of 2 or 3 side by side, not sure) and 3 others are right outside the lines.
then, we just put the glasses and ear protection down and were looking at the guns and he pulled out the sig to show us (honestly dont remember if it was the 226 or 229), pulled some loose rounds out of the trays and let us go shoot 5 rounds each of .40
thats a nice gun, I shot the torso, and landed all 6 right in the middle, and my buddy shot the head and got all 6 dead on. but its over 800 bucks.
of course all this was only from around 7-8 yards.
I was looking at the millenium PT140 or 145, and they are DA/SA right? and the 24/7 is DAO, the glock is also DAO, but the triggers felt nothing alike. is it because of the glocks auto safeties?
what other model gun with a price between 3-400 bucks has a trigger pull somewhat like the glock.
the taurus even seems a bit bigger than the glock but the glock has a 200 dollar higher price tag than the pt145... and its not so much that I hated the 24/7 trigger, I just liked the glocks alot more, so I would like to get something similar. I still want the G27, but would also like to find something a bit cheaper that has a similar trigger feel for less money that I might find somewhere to try out.
