With ammunition climbing out of sight, and not wanting to deplete my prepping reloading inventory; I needed another way to keep muscle memory fresh.
I looked at a way to throw projectiles downrange, while not spending a dollar plus on my 9mm for the privilege.
Here is what I found:
The top one is a Diamondback DB9 9 mm and the bottom one is a Daisy 177 caliber.
Running a 100 round practice session with the DB9 costs about $110.00, while the Daisy is about $3.00....
Trigger time is trigger time, and I still run the DB9 to check groups. There is one other benefit I didn't plan on, I can safely use the Daisy at home! A cardboard box full of newspaper, is a very functional backstop that will allow me to reuse the projectiles. I have increased my practice time by about double, with a $30.00 BB Gun! The CO2 cylinder allows a good approximation of a semi-automatic handgun.
My groups seem to be smaller with my DB9 pistol too....
Now I need to see if I can get Momma practicing more too.
