Reply to "Pistol cal AR-15 (9mm)"

We finally had a PCC day at the local IDPA club. Got to shoot my carbine, and... didn't notice the cycling differences so much. Felt a lot like shooting a suppressed 5.56 outside (it's an indoor range) so none of the horrible blast, but I didn't notice any weirdness in the action, etc. So, works great under "stress" as a carbine simulator. 

The big dumb RDS on the gooseneck (I have a fixed carry handle and FSB) worked as intended. Saw nothing but the dot, and the target. Worked great. 

I did fuck up two things during the COF that prove my point I need to make this part of my routine shooting; there's not as much opportunity for using my real carbine at close ranges, with barricades, etc. So, I reloaded before leaving cover, then went to fire and got nothing. Bolt had locked back, but I didn't notice and fell into handgun/cqb speed reloading, so didn't rotate the gun, etc. and check like I otherwise would. Fail! 

Also, ranges got deceptive, so I didn't hold over enough. Decent enough shots, but all a bit low because whoops. Also, fail: need to do it more. 

Academically knowing and getting the reps are two different things. These are perishable skills and I don't do it enough! 

The things that will destroy America are prosperity at any price, peace at any price, safety first instead of duty first, the love of soft living and the get rich quick theory of life. – Theodore Roosevelt
