Thank you for all your help!  I'm primarily a rifle guy but 5m pistol will always hold a place in my shooting heart!

Thanks so much!  Lots of amazing pistol shooters here who get scores in the mid to high 140's. 

My goal is to improve and I was able to go from 134 to 139 and now 140 so I'm pretty happy
I just got a P17 in the mail yesterday and put a scope on it.  Anxious to see how it shoots today.

I just cracked 140 myself and no doubt you'll be there very soon.  Also I used a red dot and you used open sights so apples and oranges.  Congrats on a great target!

What do you like and dislike about your pistol?

Thanks.

I'm still getting use to it but I'm sure I'll be fitting/sanding the grip to fit better.  It's pretty close now.


I have long fingers and haven't gotten the trigger shoe where I want it.  It may not have enough adjustment.


My main complaint is not the gun but me.  I'm 67 and my eyes don't focus on the front sight well.  I just got a set of Knoboch frames and will be getting a lens made next week after I get a new prescription.  The new lens will have perfect focus on the front blade.


I'd recommend it to anyone wanting at low-end 10m pistol

$40 these days.  Just got one.  Used it in 10m, got an 88.  I like it but my left forearm is so sore even after 10 shots. I need to find a better way to close it.

My Daisy 717  with the trigger mod is so much more enjoyable to shoot.

Both are more accurate than me at this point.

Got mine shot before dinner tonight.  Found a few more old tins of the 500 RD RWS Basics so I guess I'll shoot those for a while. Boy, my unsupported shooting isn't what it used to be, but it's still fun. Trying to find time to do it is a little harder these days because I've been spending a little more time bench rest shooting with my air rifles.

Here's my fancy air pistol I use for most of my 5 meter shooting these days.  It's a Beeman P-17, $29.95 K-Mart special, my son (Ammon) bought for me about 8 or so years ago.  Notice the fancy grips I put on it.  It's that cohesive bandage material like they put on your arm after they take a blood sample from you.  For a very inexpensive pistol, it shoots pretty darn well.  At 5 meters, it shoots almost as well as my $1,600 Steyr LP2 Short.
