I just like the 1911 controls...they are very accurate pistols for a factory gun. I still generally carry a Glock 36 when I carry a larger caliber because it is smaller and lighter than the HK USPC but the HK is my house gun of choice and the one I shoot most at the range. Shooting with dad never gets old no matter what your age!

Cherish those times with dad, they are priceless.. Glad you got ur permit!!!

A little constructive critism, do some dry firing exercises of pull and firing your pistol (just triple check its unloaded and put the ammo in another room). You are showing a lot of trigger pull on the posted bullet holes... I am sure those will improve dramatically and you will be shooting out a small pie plate at 25 feet...

Congratulations. I remember my first pistol purchase. Beretta 96 .40 at Sports Authority.

The reason I'll never forget it is when I was handling the gun at the counter some fat ugly old bastard came along with a cane and yelled at me "Whattaya need that for" to which I replied "You must be a democrat" and he went away like a dog with its tail between its legs.

I am curious also and reitterate Hollywood9s question. Did you get a permit to carry in NJ? If so I obviously have missed something. How did you do it in NJ?

One of the last things I did with my dad while he was able to get around prior to cancer getting the best of him was take him shooting. Great memory etched forever in the slide show of life.

I would laugh at him complaining he couldn't see the sights. Guess who's laughing now?

NC too if you don't have a carry permit. $5 bucks and the local Sheriff has to sign off on it.
