    Making friends with my competition pistol

    In June I picked up this Bernardelli Practical Elite competition (dynamic shooting) pistol.
    When I worked at Bernardelli (1996-1997), I sold them for the astronomic price of 4.700.000 £, which would be, at the official exchange rate between € and £, almost 2.450 €. Plus 24 years...
    Now that I broke her in, I’m starting to get my satisfactions from her.
    I just can’t fully zero her for the 6’o clock hold. She would keep printing a tad high at 15 metres.
    So, my first shot went high, then I settled in and did better.
    50 rounds in fairly rapid fire (one round every 2-3 seconds).
    I already reloaded for her. Just like to shoot that jewel!

    It was made for dynamic shooting. Bernardelli won a couple world cups in some of the disciplines in the mid-90ies.
    With that one and with the somewhat simpler, but also much lighter VB Practical, which was less of a piece of art, but preferred by the pros.
