I made a finer adjustment to my Glock 20 to try to dial in the last half-inch. If you recall from last time, the Glock somehow got 2″ off to the left at 30 feet. I adjusted them, and they wound up 1/2″ to the right at 30 feet. A few nights ago I pushed the sights back the other way a few thousandths of an inch. I took the pistol out to the range to check it today.
Trusting that my sights were near enough for “minute of bad guy,” I started with a couple of Bill Drill strings. Six shots, 7 yards. I shot from the ready position.
Then I mounted the Hex Site targets and shot for groups. I did two ten-round groups.
That looks pretty good to me! The first string has three shots a bit to the left of the center-line, three shots to the right of the center-line, and four pretty much on-center. The second string has five shots to the left of center, three to the right, and one on the center line. I’m going to call this good enough.
Then I switched to Mozambique drill. I’ll report results in the format torso_hits/2 head_hits/1 time_in_seconds:
- 2/2 0/1 3.95
- 2/2 1/1 3.90
- 2/2 1/1 3.19
- 2/2 1/1 3.x (shot timer caught someone else’s shot just as I was looking at it)
- 2/2 1/1 4.64
- 2/2 1/1 7.14
- 2/2 1/1 4.98
- 2/2 1/1 5.73
- 2/2 1/1 4.13
In my first few strings, I felt like I was really jerking the trigger on the head shot. (The miss on my first string tells you that’s so.) I really slowed down for the sixth string to try to make that head shot good.
Then, since I’d missed so few shots on this target, I went back to Bill Drills. I shot 6/6 on all three strings in the following times:
Overall, I’m happy the pistol is sighted in. I’m also pleased with my performance overall with the Glock. I don’t have a baseline to compare the Mozambique drills to, but my Bill Drill times were in good order for a pistol I don’t shoot much. The larger size of the pistol makes a big difference, as does the HexSite, in my humble opinion. Two misses after a whole bunch of drills is pretty good, if I do say so myself. (The final look at the target is the featured photo for this post.)
Have fun and stay safe out there.
