Thanks to the generous folks that hit the tip jar, as well as what looks like some possible help from some ammo companies, the next gun tests are a go. (And I used the plural because I have two that are pretty much underway, with more lined up in the future.)
I took my personal BG380, gave it a quick cleaning, and lubed all the prescribed contact points with Slip 2000 EWL
laser rangefinder, the targets were most of ten yards away. I loaded up my mags with the Aguila ball ammo and started shooting.
I let my finger slide up on the trigger up to the first knuckle, the old-school double-action trigger style, the meat of my
trigger finger would contact the right side of the frame just as the trigger broke,
pushing shots left.
If I held my finger out of the guard more so I was only
pressing the trigger with the pad, I could hit the 2" aiming circle, but
it was tricky with my hand so sweaty, since the gun's grip is so small. Still, if I'd been aiming at the "head box" just to the left, I think these initial results are pretty decent for a pistol that half the internet will claim is only good for shooting across a broom closet or phone booth.
I hope to get more rounds in today.
