I shot my first match of the season this evening and I learned a few things:
- I love optics! It was my first time shooting PCCO class with the new Ruger PC9 and I’m hooked. I still shoot irons in production pistol class, but my aging eyes definitely prefer the dot.
- The Ruger PC9 shoots very well. The gun is rather heavy, but the balance felt nice and I scored a few sub-three second times.
- Red is good. I installed a red fiberoptic front sight on my production pistol and it made a huge difference. Previously, it had green front and rear fiberoptics. The contrasting color significantly improved my target acquisition and accuracy. I struggled with the Pendulum course in the past, but I did much better today. This is interesting, because I always preferred monocolor sights in my younger years. Aging eyes again.
Overall I am very happy, especially for the first match of the year. I felt rusty, but did pretty well.
