    That's what they called it when they were on Mitthoeffer when I went there 30 yrs. ago.
    Imagine my surprise when I went in 30 yrs. later and it was the same owners (his son, then).

    Yes, currently the range at the old INDY GUN BUNKER that was on East Washington and Post road, is being relocated inside the military surplus store at East Washington and Franklin.

    By the way, can anyone tell me if a Glock 17 will shoot tighter groups with 124 grain or 147, as opposed to the range round of 115?
    I have run into that in the past, where a duty gun was made for a 124 grain.

    Was having fun at the range with some .22LR guns, and decided to have the Glock 17 Gen 4 for dessert before I left.
    No improvement from a few days ago in the head shots. My only excuse is I did take it out to 20', up from 15'.
    In the torso shots I was way off, like I was shooting free hand at 40 or 50 feet instead of using a rest at 30': puzzling, and more honestly: embarrassing.
    Being inconsistent from one range session to another has been a trademark of mine though, unfortunately.

    Thanks Sigblitz!

    I know I've got this saved somewhere, others, and maybe you have shared it before.
    I'm going to copy and put it in a file for reviewing AGAIN.
    I knew it probably had something to do with my finger position.

    doddg, I am always impressed with your groups. If the gun is up to it you shoot great from any distance. But I can't help to think you are cheating yourself if you don't shoot occasionally with a timer and train for self defense scenarios. If you already have this covered then congrats and carry on.

    You must be the kindest "critic" around: my own groups make me mad 1/2 the time b/c I can't stay consistent.
    I think you are so right about the timer, but not so sure about the self-defense scenarios since I can barely get in and out of the car some days.
    I won't be doing any getting on the ground and back up again with a loaded gun in my hand. ,
    I even bought some targets that have different drills to do, but haven't got around to it.
    I really wanted to do steel shooting this summer, but I got totally sidetracked with "life."
    It is the next dimension that I need to experience.
    In fact, I'm starting another update on the house (6th since summer), I don't know how I had time to go to work with retirement being so busy, so I'll probably not even have any range time this coming week.

    Not a G17 - but at least with factory ammo my Gen 5 G34 seemed to shoot the 124 more accurately. That was shooting Aguila 115 FMJ and Aguila 124 FMJ. As for reloads I have only tried the Hornady 124 XTP and it shoots very well in the G34. May try some 115 and 147 grain reloads later.
