I shot in a steel match for the first time today. Despite it pouring rain and shooting while standing in an inch of slick mud It was a lot of fun. I have a lot of experience shooting pistol but never made it out to shoot in a match before. I had no issue hitting the steel and my target transitions were good, but I had major issues with my pistol. I took my IMI Jericho 941 because it's hands down the most accurate full-sized pistol I own. I had no issue hitting even the smallest targets quickly (Most of the time). I leaned something about the pistol VERY quickly. The safety is almost unusable. My hands are very small. As in I can wear a women's small glove and I cannot get the safety off fast enough because of its extremely high position on the gun. I have a Springfield range officer that I got to try and shoot open next year. However, it's currently locking closed with a live round in the chamber. It won’t fire and will not open without generous force being applied. No idea what is wrong with it but I's going in to get worked on. So, I think I'm going to buy a CZ-75 and hope it shoots as well as my Jericho 941 without the safety position issues. My other option is to modify the safety on my target Browning Hi-power. It's an amazing pistol but like most Hi-powers the safety is too small to be usable. Unlike the Jericho 941 that can be fixed. I'll have to do a bit of thinking over the winter.
