My sister Betsy and I went out to the pistol range at the Saginaw Field and Stream today. It's a beautiful place to shoot by the way. We each bought a new little gun a couple of weeks ago and figured we'd get some practice with them. My favorite gun of all time is my Kimber 1911 .45 ACP. I've put many thousands of rounds through it and I'd be hard pressed to find a better gun.
The new ones are Bersa Thunders. Betsy bought the carry model and I bought the deluxe model. They are .380 ACP's and they are very good deals. Made in South America they make a nice little gun to carry. I always thought they were a bit underpowered for a carry gun but with the new improved defensive ammo, it's a great little gun.
We put up some paper..(trap score sheets since we both forgot targets) and started firing. I always warm up with my .45 and then switched over to the Bersa. Nice. A very nice little gun. I say little since compared to the 1911 it's very small. Perfect little carry gun. If you're familiar with guns, they are much like the Walther PPK. (remember James Bond?).
We finished up our shooting with the bowling pins. That was fun. There were about a dozen or so and we each picked six and took them out. Bang, bang, bang, bang, bang and bang. I can't think of a better way to spend some outdoor time!!
