Finally made it back to the range on Good Friday. I was almost the only heathen on the range except for a pair of trap-skeet shooters. I had my new M40-A1 to baptize plus my new-to-me FEG 9mm Hungarian-made Browning. All the red-man targets are 11"x14" size, shot from 25 feet, seated with a rest. First, the M40-A1 with WWB 165-gr. FMJs, 12 rounds. Target 1 starts off great with 3 in the 9 ring, 9 in the 10 ring. Target 2 is a tighter group that makes the 9 and 10s harder to count, one in 8 ring. Target 3 has 5 in the 9 and 7 in the 10. Obviously, this pistol can shoot better than I can see. Next up is the FEG 9mm Hungarian-made Browning with WWB 115-gr. FMJs, 15 rounds per target. Target 1 has 2 in the 9, several in the X ring and the rest in the 10 ring. Target 2 has 2 in the X ring and the rest in a tighter group than target 1, but a bit low. This pistol, too, shoots better than I can see. It has traditional front-post, rear-slot black sights which may be a bit more precise on targets than the Steyr traps. Now the FEG 9mm with WWB 147-gr. JHPs, 15 rounds per target. Target 1, 2 in the 9, the rest in the 10 and X rings. As Wulf would say, "Dayam!" However, one FTEject out of 15. Not a good sign. Target 2 is "Dayam 2", one cuts the 9 ring, rest in the 10 and X rings. No FTEs. Dayam indeed! I love this pistol! Just gotta shoot it some more to make sure that FTE isn't a bad habit. (Confession. A good strip and clean might help it out a lot.) Finally, some sheer idiocy. M40-A1 in the right hand with 14 rounds, M357-A1 in the left hand with 14. I call it the Rooster Cogburn drill. Couldn't find my eye patch and no, Wulf, I did not try this NEKKID! The range was empty so I wouldn't have got arrested. But mid-50s was too chilly. This is shooting at a full-size man target, standing, 21 feet, alternating hands as quickly as I could shoot and reacquire the target. One hit outside the 7 ring at top corner of right shoulder; 4 in 8 ring, 17 in the 9 ring, 4 in the 10 ring and 2 in the X ring. Not bad for a totally useless drill. Lot of fun, but not useful except in a movie. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME! Or on the range either. I had at least 2 or 3 FTEjects each with the 40 and the 357, no doubt due to limp wristing. I've never had an FTE with 600+ rounds in my M357-A1, so that's gotta be the cause. And oddly enough, the last round in the M40A1 was an FTF. Click. Eject and reload. Click. Eject and reload. Click. I had one FTF with my 357 the first day at the range and discovered I had not fully closed the slide. Reloaded that round and it fired. But this 40 WWB FMJ must be a dud. It has three distinct firing pin marks on the primer. Final observations. I was surprised to find the M40A1 has slightly MORE recoil than my M357-A1. Since the 357 has higher ballistics, I expected less recoil from the 40, not a bit more. But that observation came from sitting. Standing in the Rooster Cogburn drill I could tell no difference shooting one-handed. And of course, the FEG 9mm recoil was less than either the 40 or the 357. That's to be expected both from the round and the pistol, an all-steel weapon vs. lighter polymer generally results in less recoil.
