Today was the first chance I've had to go to the range with my new PT145 Pro.

Many firsts for me actually.

First time I've owned a handgun.
First time I've fired a handgun.

(For me, I don't count bb/pellet pistols)

Heck the last time I even fired a weapon was Air Force basic training in 1982 and a qual test in 1983 but all of that was M16.

Today before I knew it the box of 50 was done.

The only issue I had was during my second mag, I somehow hit the mag eject during the recoil. That happened a couple of times. Adjusted my grip and had no problems the rest of the time.

There was a CHL instructor there watching and functioning as a range safety officer. I had gone through about half my box of shells when he told me not to let anyone try to change anything about how I was shooting (i.e. stance, grip, trigger pull, etc).

In comparison I tried out my wife's new Ruger SP101 .357 Magnum. Tried 38 Special loads with no issue. .357 Mag loads however were painful!

So it was a good day on the range and I'm very happy with my choice of the PT145 Pro.

You might not need this, but I'm going to give this to you. You might be aware of all this, but there's all kinds of useful target,POI/POA, and other data in it.

If you don't need that kind of stuff just disregard.

Happy to have you here.
Many thanks. At this point I'm a sponge soaking knowledge. Never hurts to learn to much as opposed to not knowing enough right?

I go with the theory that if I can think of something (doesn't matter how messed up, gross, distrurbing, etc it is) then someone out there has either done it or is going to do it.
