Just curious how much lead is going down range this weekend. There really is no better way to celebrate the sacrifice of our predecessors and current fighting men and women than to flex one's second amendment rights at the range (my opinion). I personally relish the opportunity to fire a weapon because a WANT to (as opposed to when I HAVE to). I'll be heading to the range tomorrow and I'll be back to report how many empty casings I've manufactured.

So what's YOUR round count for the weekend?

I shot 22 .22 LR rounds this morning when I tested out a couple of Mossberg 44 mags I just received back from repair ( one 7 round mag and one 15 round mag). More shooting to follow over the next few days :).

In the near term hopefully none. I'm on a fishing swimming trip typing this from a makeshift bed in the back of a tundra backed up to an irrigation ditch. I have a s&w 60-18 by my head but it'll be a bad night if I have to use it.

Took Friday off and put about 200 .22s down range along with about 60 .45s. Unfortunately, last day of turkey season saw nothing but mosquitoes and coyotes, didn't take any shots today. Tomorrow hitting the archery range but I'll probably sneak in a couple hundred rounds at the pistol house too.

This was destined to be a good weekend for me seeing that I haven't been to the range in a while. Here's what I've shot so far since Friday (I've lived at the range, if you can't tell):

48 12ga. target load
60 12ga. 00 buck shot
60 12ga. magnum slugs (all through my Saiga 12)

150 .22LR (Henry pump-action .22LR)

90 55-grain .223 (Barnes Precision AR-15)

Tomorrow, it's looking like a .22LR day since my shoulder is toast from all that Saiga fun. I've got a ton of Wolf match target ready to shoot.

Monday, I'm hoping to take my S&W 686 and 1911 out for a ride.

So, all in all, I'm prepared to go broke this weekend!

Sent 125 rds of 32gr .204 downrange, and 51 lust crazed praire dogs to the promised land. Pups are up, but hard to hit at 2-300 yds, but you can get doubles more often because they're "dumb" right now. Not too bad a batting adverage, considering the range and wind. Done by noon, a large time was had by all.

115 rounds through my Beretta 92FS. I had a few minutes so I drove to some farmland where I have free access. I go way too often because this pistol has a high fun factor. I can't keep my stash of ammo this way!

None this weekend, working (got to pay for the ammo, lol), off Monday but my range is closed, so, this coming Friday I'm making it a day trip:D, gonna be a 2000 round day of mainly 9mm, 380, and .22lr! It'll be fun! Plus I need to record some video for my YouTube stuff, lol. Anyhow, I'd like to take this time to thank all those who have given their life's for us, and all who have served and are serving! Plus their family's, they sacrifice too, I come from a military family, and I have nothing but respect for all of you! Thank you!!!!

Just got back from a late-day/night shoot with a friend. When the sun went down we moved up to 5-10 yards of the berm and did some flashlight drills. 400 rounds of 9mm this trip. Friday I got to the range in the afternoon and did another 150 of draw & fire, target transition, and mag changes.

That's more than I typically shoot, but I'm still relatively fresh back from the last deployment, and relatively fresh out of the hospital from surgery. I can't do much else right now (can't even swing a golf club) so I figured it's a good opportunity to reacquaint myself with my gun collection and knock the rust off for IDPA this summer.

Personally,
2 or 3 hundred rounds 5.56 link from an M249 SAW

About 20 .50 cal raufoss (armor piercing incendiary explosive) from an M107 .50 cal (2 shots before I decided I could spare some time to put ear plugs in... ouch)

Another 20 or so 40mm high explosive dual purpose rounds split between an M32 GL and M203 GL.

Also, the Taliban shot some RPG's, a few 82mm mortar rounds, some 40mm grenades of their own and several hundred rounds of 7.62x39 and 7.62x54r. They must have been celebrating Memorial Day early too!

The whole family went and replaced old flags w/ fresh ones at grave markers. Saw some old old-timers.

Tomorrow, I'll watch my boys march in the parade (as part of Cub scouts).

In between I've got some .308, 7.62x39, .45, .22LR that I'm itching to expend.

There was silicone on my hand and I decided to check out the slick new feel of my S.A. I had done a bunch of work, a couple months ago and knew it was loaded, but with plastic rounds, still, it was not planned. Also went range that day and Sat. Thanks to all serving, the Vets and flag replacers. I had a plan but couldn't find a flag. I was thrilled and surprised at cemetary. :)

I had to have my front sight replaced on my duty gun on Friday, and I sent one mag downrange to verify that everything was okay. Knock on wood that is the only shooting I do this weekend since I'll be working. It's a holiday weekend, so I'll be busy.

Sunday - ate lots of shrimp, clams,burgers ,and German style potato salad, watermelon, cheesecake & probably drank more homemade wine than is good for me.Monday- watched parade, speeches, etc. Visited the graves of loved ones at three cemetaries, stopped off at Legion Post.
Rest of this week I`ll be shooting my .58cal Parker Hale musketoon -have lots of shoots coming up in June & July.

About 40 rounds out of my M1 Garand and another 40 out of my 223 varminter. While shooting my garand a older gentleman pulled into the range to do some shooting and we got talkin. Seems that he was a marine for about 4 years (1958-1962)and carried a garand while on duty. He still could remember the serial number from that rifle. I offered him a chance to shot mine but he was unable to due to have shoulder surgery to both shoulders. It was very interesting to hear him talk about it. Although I also served it was a bit later and I carried a M16A1 but I couldn't tall you what the serial number was because we never carried the same one from one duty station to the next and while I was stationed in Germany I saw my rifle maybe 2 times in 2 1/2 years.

I disagree that Memorial Day is not a day of celebration.

My grandfather (Navy) taught my mom and uncle (Air Force) that the best way to recognize or remember anyone's passing is to celebrate who they were. Not every serviceman was an exemplary human being, but quite a few who served had moments during their service where they became more than they thought they could be, because they rose to meet exceptional challenges.

My grandfather is just one of many people whom I am related to, or am friends with, who have served our country. Despite just being one man, he was a truly remarkable human being.

In my grandfather's honor, I tell this story to someone, every Memorial Day. This story was told to my uncle, by the guy who was the victim of the prank in the story, and I am told that he was laughing to the point of tears, when he told it. My uncle relayed it to me, and I have already told this story to my kids (11, and 7). I pass on this story, because it *wasn't* an entirely random prank. It was by design, as you'll see.

Here it is...


In days gone by, it was common for men from the same geographical area to serve with each other, upon enlisting. When they were of age, my grandfather and his 3 best friends enlisted in the Navy.

During this story, all 4 of them were assigned to the same submarine. They had heard that another sub in the area had been destroyed very recently, and one of the quartet was especially shaken, and wasn't holding up well.

Deciding that something big was going to have to happen in order to get his buddy's mind right, my grandfather goaded one of the other buddies into talking smack about their CO (forgive me, I forget the title/rank).

While the guy began to rant, my grandfather leaned over, with his weight supported by an arm on the wall or column upon which the comm dial was mounted. In this type of sub, you would could turn the dial to indicate which compartment of the sub that you wanted to send sound to. He slyly clicked it over to the area where he knew the CO would be, and kept encouraging his buddy to badmouth the CO.

It didn't take very long for the CO to barge into the room, and for the stuff to hit the fan.

Evidently, my grandfather had a reputation for being a prankster. He and his buddies doubled over with laughter.

They were assigned a shared punishment. During the entire time that they were slogging through their new duties, they were cracking up laughing.


This was how my grandfather helped his friends cope. A couple amazing events (one being a flu that all four got) kept them from boarding vessels that wound up going down, and all four of them survived WW2, and returned to Iowa. My grandfather eventually moved to Oregon, but remained in constant contact with the other guys, until he passed away.

I met the other three when my grandfather passed away. One of them told me that he wouldn't have been the same person that he had been when he left, had it not been for my grandfather continuing to "be a jackass the whole time we were out there". The other two nodded in agreement.


All four men passed away within a 9 month period. They were best friends (I am told) from childhood, until age 82.


I know that my grandfather would not feel like anyone was honoring his memory by being somber, or sullen. He never let people be that way around him. He would prefer that people smile when they think of him, and I can't help but do just that.


I am sorry for the wall of text.

This story is my salute to my grandfather, Edward Meyer.

I love you, grandpa.

Definitely a day of celebration. It is a day for recognizing the contributions and sacrifices made by our Service Men and Women. I choose to remember why I have what I have. A lot of good people died in defending my rights and I celebrate the fact that many of those brave people volunteered to die for this country. My father was in WWII and is alive today. My uncle died in Vietnam. Should we mourn his death and ignore the ones that lived?

I will not shoot any ammo this weekend. This hotel does not have a range!

I don't think it's necessarily a day of mourning or of celebration. It's a day of remembrance -- but it's not my place to judge how you do that. Hopefully we don't ignore the ones that lived, this just isn't their day. The other 364 are -- Veterans Day in particular, and Armed Forces Day for those still serving.

My personal round count? "0"

However I was present for what in my mind was the most important round count by 4 members of our local Honor Guard and the three shot volley fired to the East at the close of the ceremony at our local War Memorial.

Those 12 rounds were by far the most important round count for me, should have been for anyone here in the U.S.A.

I never got to the range, but I spent some time at the bench. Built about 100 rounds, some of which would work in a U.S. military weapon today, and some of which would have worked in the 19th century.

That and my annual showing of Saving Private Ryan were my tribute for the day.

Not directly related to my round count, but here's what my response was to several Memorial Day posts on Facebook:

"I won't thank you vets for your service. You had a job that you were called to do, either by your SS number or your conscience. You did that job very well. Those who never were called to serve owe a debt, those of us that ended up PDQ @ MEPS thank you for filling the hole that our inability to serve left behind. While I do not thank you for your service, I do thank you for picking up the slack I or folks like me left for you. You did the job asked of you to the best of your abilities which far outstripped the bar set by the DoD. For those reasons I celebrate you on this Memorial Day and every other day as you have earned it. The world at large is a better place for folks such as yourselves having been in it even if for less than two decades."

We get together every memorial day and cook fish and drink beer and in our own way, we mourn or talk about the buds that didn't come home and make jokes about the one's that did. All of us are ex- military and active military and Federal agency's of different branches.
Memorial day is very special to us and should be to any normal veteran.:(

Not directly related to my round count, but here's what my response was to several Memorial Day posts on Facebook:

"I won't thank you vets for your service. You had a job that you were called to do, either by your SS number or your conscience. You did that job very well. Those who never were called to serve owe a debt, those of us that ended up PDQ @ MEPS thank you for filling the hole that our inability to serve left behind. While I do not thank you for your service, I do thank you for picking up the slack I or folks like me left for you. You did the job asked of you to the best of your abilities which far outstripped the bar set by the DoD. For those reasons I celebrate you on this Memorial Day and every other day as you have earned it. The world at large is a better place for folks such as yourselves having been in it even if for less than two decades."


Well that was different.

Thank you for the thoughts, I guess?

I served with a fellow that was PDQ, in his case he served as a cilivian, I was stationed at the Pentagon.

Guess we better get back to the round count.

Helped out with a pre- Appleseed shoot on Sunday so I didn't get to shoot until afterwards. Got 100 or so Aguila Interceptors (22LR) from 150 yards at the range and then played with a 100 or so 22LR tracers after dark at home.

A friend and I went to the range Sunday and put a fair amount of lead down range, 30 rounds 30-06, 150 rounds 223, 150 rounds 40 S&W, 50 rounds 9mm, 200 rounds 22lr, 40 rounds 22 magnum. 50 rounds of 17 HMR. All the centerfire with the exception of 9mm were all my reloads. My reloads are getting better all the time, made real progress with the 223 and accuracy running them through 223 Ruger mod.77 mark 2 with 26 inch bull barrel. Also have the 30-06 round just like I want for deer season coming up, 150 grain Hornady Interlock. The 223 through the Ruger are grouping at an inch and a half at 200 yards, may do better with less wind. We were at a range in Florida and dealing with the winds associated with the tropical depression, the winds buffeted the 17 HMR enough that the best group was an inch and a half at 100 yards, the 17 HMR was bull barreled Marlin that will repeatedly group at one half inch at 100 with these old eyes. Bottom line had a lot of fun, I personally would love to spend every day at the range but that is a bit impractical!! I just hope everybody had a great weekend!! Most of all I want to thank each and every man and woman in the military past or present for MY FREEDOM and ABILITY to OWN AND FIRE these weapons, THESE MILITARY MEN AND WOMEN and THEIR FAMILIES have PAID FOR MY RIGHTS TO ENJOY THIS PASTIME!!!!

I do not know. I never count them, but we shot a lot.

I was most satisfied with a deed we did for an old handicap gentleman. He had a very dated and weathered .22 rifle. It was one of those Stevens/Savage 87 rifles made for Sears, and it was in bad shape. Dad and I went to visit him and retrieved the gun for some work. We stripped it down, cleaned and lubed it for a test run; but no go, it didn't work. However, after some tweaking to the action, we got that thing running like a waterfall. Sweet little shooter too!

100 rounds each through the G19 and G26, 50 through the SR9c, 50 through the SP101, and 20 through the P22. I planned on more through the .22, but I could not talk my 11 year old daughter into shooting it. It was her first trip to the range with me, and she was only interested in using the binoculars to tell me when I was missing the targets!:)

Update:
I Shot off another 150 rounds of .22 LR, 50 rounds of .380 though my new P3AT, 50 rounds through my new to me Colt Detective Special and finished off with 200 rounds through my S&W revolver and 1911's. Overall it was a great weekend.

Went on Monday morning, I only shot 42 rounds of 7.62x39mm through the CZ 527M, but the young lady I was helping went through about 200 .22lr in the P-01/Kadet Kit.:)

I tried shooting iron sights from field positions, discovered I need work.

I had a pile of processed brass just sitting around so I RELOADED some instead of shooting any.:D

500 223 with 55gr FMJ
250 38 SPL SWC
50 500 S&W with 350gr JSP
250 308 168gr JHP match rounds
Just gettin ready for a large range session at a friends private range with our usual group over the 4th.:cool: I will be loading a bunch of blasting ammo for everybody to use in my handguns then. When we run out of ammo the ribs, lobsters, corn and chili should just be ready.:D

Friendly, Don't Fire!

Well, I made it through the weekend without spending one cent on ammunition fired!

Any ammo that is not fired is just that much more to shoot later!

Zero. :(

Ahh the joy of having both cars demand a few thousand in work at the same time.

Oh well I needed to let my lead levels drop more anyhow.
