Today's quick range trip. 45 rounds quick fired -- 30 (4 mags) at 10 yards, 15 (2 mags) at 15 yards.
Two misses. Durn.

Ran some rounds through the CZ 75 and Sig P365.  Around the 1,200 round mark on the P365 and still no issues.  Been carrying it more and more.  The CZ 75 is easily my favorite handgun to shoot.  It fits my hand like perfection.  Natural draw and point for me and quick follow up shots due to weight of all steel frame.  My Glock 19 may be going bye bye soon for another CZ.  Jus Sayin.

Why I Carry a Gun

I don't carry a gun to kill people; I carry a gun to keep from being killed.

I don't carry a gun because I'm evil; I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the World.

I don't carry a gun because I hate the government; I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.

I don't carry a gun because I'm angry; I carry a gun so that I don't have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.

I don't carry a gun because I want to shoot someone; I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.

I don't carry a gun to make me feel like a man; I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.

I don't carry a gun because I feel inadequate; I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

I don't carry a gun because I love it; I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.

I carry a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take a whoopin' without dying.

This reasoning makes sense to me but I am guilty of being a puss, sometimes.

"Why I Don't Own a Handgun"
"I don't want to live in fear. I know that sounds strange -- a gun is supposed to bring peace of mind. But to keep a piece at your side is to look at the world through gunsights. It's a profoundly anti-social posture. To me, carrying a handgun is an acknowledgement of weakness, not strength. It's an admission that you're out of ideas for how to deal with people, even those -- especially those -- who mean you harm. It's a failure of imagination, a failure of wits and, in the case of open carry, a threat of violence to every passing person."


I guess I am often weak, and out of ideas on how to deal with coyotes, bears, and those damned invisible mountain lions, because I carry a handgun in the woods.

I don't give a damn about getting killed. Humans are conceived, live a few happy moments, then die.

I'm too damn lazy to carry.  Don't care about living in fear.  If someone gets in my grill, I'll bite their nose off.

I don't live in fear. Gotta question though -- you ever been shot? Ever had someone shooting at you? I have. Getting shot really hurts. Hard to bite somebody's nose off if they're shooting at you or holding a gun on you.
