Defensive Shooting Club: Intensely Steel

Today we had an intense steel shooting day. Lots of competition with the dueling tree.

We shot so much that a bunch of people ran out of ammo.

I was using my S&W M&P 9 and had a break down! The pin holding the trigger together at the articulation point fell out.

Luckily it was just hanging in there a little bit so I didn't actually lose it.

It fell out right in the middle of a competition, I ran to get my back up gun to finish the shoot and then fixed the M&P by carefully sliding the pin back into place. After it was fixed I used it the rest of the day without any recurring issues.

I'll have to keep my eye on this little pin. I'm wondering how it worked its way out in the first place. Very unusual.

On a personal note, I was having a off day. I couldn't hit the broad side of a barn! Very depressing. I couldn't quite figure out the problem.

I kept on shooting though. Next time I'll be back in the game. I hope...

Dedicated Practitioners
Had a pretty large group show up today. The DSC is growing and we have a bunch of regulars that always adds a lot of camaraderie.
Clearing A Malfunction
The shooter in the above picture is 13 years old. He's shooting his Dad's .45. He said he's been shooting it for 2 years. He did a great job and if he keeps it up he'll be a great shooter if he decides to compete. I wish I had someone to pay for my ammo...
Getting Back Into The Fight
We were shooting from a lot of unconventional positions towards the end of the day. I don't know where Jeff dreams up his ideas but he sure keeps us all on our toes. The above tire configuration has 6 holes to shoot through. Can you find them? I didn't think so...

As usual, everyone had a great time and learned a lot.
