    Dadblameit you Characters didn't......

    tell me that thingamagig in the little purty gun case was a device to help me load the mags. I thought it was just something that they had left over when they made the pistol and didn't know what to do with it or possibly it was a display mount that would let me mount the CZ out in the open so the general public could enjoy. I sat down tonight, wiped the second mag dry using 17 shop towels (the one in the gun wasn't that bad), got that "speed loader" out, took an hour and 12 minutes to figure out how to use it (we Arkies tend to be a little on the slow side at times), and was then able to load each mag in less than 29 minutes each!!!!!....:D:D:D. I'm sure I'll be able to beat that time with a little practice! CZ is the first manufacturer that was thoughtful enough to include the mag loader aid and two fake rounds with replacement "caps" so I could dry fire. That just makes me even more of a CZ lover.........kinda like my Redhead tells me....it's the little things that count!!!

    I would appreciate it though, in the future, if you birds would tell me what everything is meant for in the CZ cases......otherwise I spend 37 minutes out of each $12.00 hour at the Bunker just trying to get a bullet in the clip and go home with my arthritic fingers yelling for a big dose of Arthritis Strength Tylenol.........:mad: I may be dumb but I am trainable!!!!!!

    Look for an Uplula loader, they also work wonders for loading mags, much easier and faster than the plastic one they give you.

    like i said, leave 'em fully loaded for a few days, smack 'em once in a while with -2 rounds so the spring jumps around a bit. they'll soften up.

    I'd like to but I'll soon hit the 71 YO mark and the ole fingers "ain't what they used to be"! Rhumatism in every joint........just finished ordering a pair of Cabella's shooting gloves to give the PT1911SS a little cushioning, don't really need it with the CZ although just a leather glove helps........otherwise I go home and soak my hands in horse linament for a couple of hours........stick around, you'll be there one of these days!!!

    By the way, you must be quite a pistol shooter. Do you have the gift of a "natural" aim if there is such a thing or just practice with cases of ammo??.......:D:D:D

    neither, i'm poor and a terrible shot, haha!! spray n' pray!!

    i was at a match with an older gentleman, he shoots a huge open division gun in 38 super shooting major power factor loads in a double stack with a compensator and red dot.... the guy is fast as nuts. he also slowly but surely runs marathons and even swam 2 miles for charity recently. i was like whoa, this dude is good. i thought he was 50. pretty good.

    then i told him about my high school days (class of 99) and how it was a long long time ago for me. he said, that's pretty recent. "if you want stories from a long long time ago, i can tell you when i was hanging out playing board games on the floor with my girlfriend when they broadcast the bombing of pearl harbor on the radio!"

    holy crap, i got owned. the guy seriously looks 50's, but is really high 70's. he won't say just how old he is!

    Yeah, the secret is staying active and having a burning hobby and I have several......also still work four days a week just to keep in touch with other people and make a little extra ammo money. Life can be as much fun or as miserable as one wants to make it and I choose the former!!!! By the way, I don't remember Pearl Harbor but very vividly remember the day WWII was over. Also remember waking in the wee hours of the morning with flight after flight of aircraft overhead, I suppose going to the Blytheville, Arkansas AFB. Tires and sugar rationed, no such thing as chewing gum, all going to the war effort. They say you're getting old when you live in the past......that's the reason I continue looking for gun "bargains" to use in the future!!!! There is also a quote that sorta goes like "Don't get into a fight with an old man, he'll just kill you!"....All this is off the subject of the original thread but it's hard to keep an OleCodger on the subject!!!!

    Keep your powder dry!
