I went to the range this evening and shot around 70 rounds. It was very difficult to load the first round into the magazines. For some reason, the feeder needs a lot of force for the first round to go in. Even then, it was pretty stiff. My thumbs were hurting after few mags. Thankfully, RSO loaned a Uplula and it was way better on my hands afterwards. I used Federal champion FMJ 115 gr ammo. There was a lot of smoke today. Not sure if it was my ammo or others' ammo or ventilation but I felt and smelled more smoke than last time. BTW, the Howard Leight Impact Sport is pretty useless. It doesn't block noise to be called shooting ear protection. With double protection, it was still pretty loud so I tested the impact sport by itself at home and I can clearly hear normal conversation. Yes mic was off and good seal around the ear. My stereo headphones block more noise. Maybe the one I got is fake. Thank god that I used ear plugs under these. Basically, it was the ear plugs that was working. I'll get a Peltor or something better soon. Aim was not bad but I found it was very hard to see gap between the front and rear sights. Probably due to lighting in the range. My shots were still little bit low and left. Gun felt pretty good with medium large grip. I'll try large grip next time as I still felt I needed more thickness there. As for pistol case, don't laugh. I used a table tennis paddle case as a gun rug and put it inside Craftsman router's hard case along with eye/ear protection and ammo. worked great and Craftsman doesn't scream gun! Aim was in the area but not exactly where I pointed. They were mostly around an inch or two low and left. There were some noob moment where I pulled the trigger without racking the slide after inserting the mag.
