Is that Koko Head range? I guess that would be about the only public range on Oahu.

Yes sir.  Yea, the gun laws are restrictive.  I quit shooting for 15 years because I got fed up with the gun registration hassles.  But, I got over it and really appreciate our fantastic public range.  It's a large and busy range with a lot of knowledgeable shooters. There's a couple guys that retired from the Army Marksmanship Unit and they are unreal.  One of them picked up a revolver I was shooting and shot a 1 inch / 5 shot group in double action at 25 yards.  I asked him what he could do at 50 yards and he made a circle with his thumb and middle finger.  Those guys are human bench rests.  He shot my Rami offhand better than I could do off the bench rest. 

So, there's pluses and minuses.  I grew up in Louisiana and was able to shoot on open land.  Times have changed.

Out of curiosity I fired some self defense rounds through the Rami today to see how the point of impact compared to my hand loads.

The flyers were lack of focus.  But, the Federal HST appears to group better than the Gold Dots.  The ammo was older and I didn't have enough to shoot more...but I think I'd buy more of the HST if I was looking for self defense ammo for the Rami.  The recoil was better than what I was expecting for both.  I could see a little flash (during daylight) with the HST and I didn't notice any flash with the Gold Dots.  The HST's shot a little lower so that tells me the velocity was faster than the Gold Dots.

Love my RAMI, and carry it most every day.  Great gun and THAT is some very nice shooting.

I, too, find the 9mm HST's to shoot the best out of all my CZ's.

Try the standard pressure 124 grain HST's. They might be more accurate than the +P's.

Thanks guys.

I was not aware that HST came in standard pressure.  Looks like they do great in 3" barrels.
