    First firing of Circuit Judge Tuffy at Range

    While I own 2 CJs for home defense, I've not been able to fire either one of them until today.

    Went to my local range with a box of 20 Winchester .45 Colt cartridges and a desire to experience the rifle and sight in the open sights on the rifle.

    I got the curiosity of the RSO who had not seen one fired.

    I set the target at 50 yards. I was really pleased with the recoil. It was not as strong as I expected. The trigger was smooth and the rifle was easy to hold and control. It felt comfortable. The range was covered and light was low but the fiber optic sights had good visibility.

    The first shots were high and right. I made a couple adjustments at the bench.

    I was able to get a less than 1" grouping with 3 shots! A first for me. Don't know how I did it without a scope but I'll take it.

    I did enjoy firing the CJ. The RSO was surprised at the recoil. He thought it would be more pronounced than it was.

    The only "negative" was that I learned not to press my face too hard against the stock. The recoil did cause me to adjust my head angle so that the stock wouldn't hit my upper lip but that was an easy fix.

    I will take my other CJ to the range after the holidays and set its open sights as well.
