    Seasonal Switch for EDC!

    Yesterday I went out to the pit with Jonesy814 and another friend of ours who just got a 1st gen Shield ( .40 cal). I brought my 638 and my Springfield Armory XD MOD2 .45acp and I was pleased at the days outcome.

    I shot at various targets Steel plates and paper with great results at varying distances. I was hitting center on the plates and during some quick draw self defense drills I was on target!

    Great day at the range as usual. Confident with switching EDC's from my 2.5" 66-2 to the XD MOD2.

    Good choices for EDC...

    Sometime at the range, try the "Dot Torture" drills... They're quite a bit of competitive fun.

    pistol-training.com » Dot Torture

    Download and print the targets free at the site. The target images link to PDF files for printing.

    We were doing another drill based on targets with a variety of colors and shapes, some with designation letters or numbers inside. This drill has the color, shape, number or letter being called at random, simulating dealing quickly with a moving target on stationary paper.

    MEA CULPA, MEA CULPA,

    I just realized this is the self loader area. I will remove the post if necessary.


    Not much of a switch for me but i do switch with the seasons among the top four of these.

    Top left M28-2 reworked to 45ACP. Top right, M625-6, 45ACP

    Middle row, left and right, M22-4,

    Bottom, Model 1917.

    I have a rule for EDC guns: They must function exactly the same way. For example DA revolver & DA autos w/out thumb safeties function the same: point & mash the bang switch. Switching systems is a good way for things to go wrong when you don't have time to think it out.

    Seasons? Seasons? We don't need no stinkin seasons!

    Down here the change of seasons happens about five or six times a year with each cold season lasting a day or two at most.

    To be vintage it must be older than me.

    The next handgun I buy will be the next to last handgun I ever buy.

    I am not a practitioner of the carry rotation concept. I utilize but one EDC year around.

    I agree with you. For years I used the blued 45ACP revolver in the photo. Then a 22-4, showed up. (Actually the 1917.). Anyway, at least mine are, for all practical applications, identical in operation.
