I last shot my Cajunized P-09 in early November, but that was at 100 yards from a rest, not bullseye practice at 25 or 50 yards. I'm still waiting on a P-10C and I'm struggling with the P-07 with open sights, so I decided to shoot the P-09 today, at 25 yards, timed fire, standing, single hand, in a pistol bay, exposed to the wind and the sun, but much easier on my abused ears.
I have a tendency to push a few shots left when shooting single hand with almost every gun that I haven't shot recently, and the P-09 was no exception. But the last 10 shots today were pretty good. (I shot 20 rounds on target 2 before setting up to video target 3, which is shown below.)
Bullseye is so demanding because good scores (95+) require that every shot be executed perfectly, while the gun is moving around. What I tend to do when I don't get to practice a couple of times per week, is to change tension in the fingers other than the trigger finger as I am releasing the shot. Usually, after I get completely comfortable with how much pressure I can put on the trigger without prematurely releasing the shot, I can keep the holes all in the 9 ring or better. Success is all in the details.
I think I could still pick up the P-09, make two range trips and get maybe 50-60 rounds to get familiar with the trigger again, and be back to shooting the gun as well as I did in 2014. I have always been able to shoot it well two handed or from a rest with little or no practice. Why? Because one is much less likely to move the gun while pulling the trigger when using two hands.
This is fun. This is not easy.
