The HiViz fiber optic front sight provided a bright sight picture, with the end of the "light pipe" gathering light and illuminating the front sight even in overcast conditions. I preferred the green light pipe, and the end of it fit into the square notch of the rear sight as though it was made for it. The glowing green dot was extremely easy to pick up, heck, you couldn't ignore it. The pistol was shooting a little to the left, with the rear leaf cranked to the right. This evening, I will readjust the rear sight base so the leaf can remain centered when on target.
As usual, the Gold Cup was willing to place a bullet right behind the one that pierced the target before....... If I was up to the challenge. I was shooting it a little low.
To my right were two men shooting a Springfield XDm. During a cold range, when we walked out to change our targets, they complimented me on mine, and wanted to know what I was shooting.
"A little Ruger and a Colt," I replied.
"Those Colts jam a lot, don't they?" they asked of me. I started to toss out a snark, but I refrained.
"It's running OK today," I replied.
