BryanB Posted February 18, 2008 Share Posted February 18, 2008 My name is Bryan. I am from Rhode Island. I joined this list because I just purchased a new Witness Match in 9mm. I was looking for a really good target pistol that was reasonable in price and cheap to shoot. I am a new shooter. I've been out to the range about 3 times and fired maybe a 1000 rounds on various firearms. I currently own a Beretta PX4 Storm in 9mm. This is a really nice weapon that is comfortable to shoot. Then I shot a friends 92fs. I realized that a larger, heavier, long barrel gun in a much better choice for me for target practice. I also learned something about the different types of trigger mechanisms and how that effects my ability to target shoot to the best of my ability. (I learned that good triggers break like glass! ) A local dealer had a couple of Target models in stock, a 9mm and a 45. He highly recommended this weapon. I had not heard of this company before, so I was doubtful. Then I started looking on the web, including this site. The enthusiasm was universally high everywhere. The only negatives I heard of were complaints about frames cracking on some early 10mm models. The complaints appeared isolated, so I was not concerned. I decided on the 9mm because the ammo is so cheap. I've also fired 45s, which I like, 40s&w which I didn't like as much as the 9mm, and .22. Anyway, I am glad I found out about this site. I am looking forward to participating. P.S. I really wish this was available as a .22LR. (The conversion kit seems a bit iffy from what I've read here.) I think it would compete very well with similarly priced target .22s, i.e. Browning and Rugers offering. Given the rising cost of ammo, I think it would do well.
