.38 Super Range Report

Took the new Colt to the range.

Not an endurance test or anything, just 50 rounds of Magtech's 130gr FMJ.

Seven yards, one magazine each at the 8 and the 9.  The last five in the box went into trying to make a smilie face.

All in all, I'm pretty happy with it.

There is a LOT more muzzle flash from .38 Super than .45 ACP.  I'm not sure how to describe the recoil.  It seemed like it took a lot less time, but wasn't harsh or abrupt at all.  Not snappy like The Lovely Harvey's .357 SIG.

Most importantly I LIKE shooting this gun.  Looks like I'm going to have to start stocking up on ammo because hardly anyone carries it locally.
