I have made the full switch back to a semi-auto handgun this year. I have not shot a revolver in any meaningful way all year, so at least 3 months. I was looking back at some old notes and noticed something kind of interesting. I have been shooting the Wilson 5×5 quite a bit lately, trying to get myself to speed up my shooting while still maintaining a decent level of accuracy. This has given me some numbers to compare.
Late last year, I shot the 5×5 with my 66-1 out of a JMCK IWB #3 and using the JOX Speedloader pouch and a Comp II loader. I have also shot the 5×5 with nearly the exact same set up, except with the 509.
|String of Fire||S&W 66-1||FN 509|
|5 rounds freestyle||3.97||3.29|
|5 rounds SHO||4.51||4.86|
|5 rounds, reload, 5 rounds||10.33||7.55|
|4 rounds body, 1 rounds head||4.27||3.53|
|Penalties (+0.50 per point)||+0.50||+2.00|
One of those guns is a modern striker fired polymer handgun, the other is a nearly 40 year old blaster, and other than the reload, those performances are remarkably similar.
