    We have an upcoming shoot at Gibson's in Mesquite on Saturday, July 17, 2004, at 10AM. Rifles and pistols are the flavor of the day.

    Oh, now THAT cuts to the quick!

    /Martyr Suit-ON/
    I'll have you know that I introduced two complete noobs to riflery that day...one of them a woman. Does sacrificing one's own pleasure and amusement for the sake of RKBA count for nothing, these days? ;)
    /Martyr Suit -OFF/

    I did not invite them on this go-'round, however, because I want to be sure to:
    1. Show up on time
    2. Get a decent round count
    3. Did I mention getting a bunch of rounds downrange?

    Unless I'm run over by a truck or some similar happenstance, I will be there at 10AM or earlier.

    I am learning, however, and will bring the "Canton Cart" my wife & I bought at Canton to haull my gear around it. I'm thinking of the following:

    Hand-Cannons:
    Taurus 651 Total Ti .357 mag (Think Ti Bodyguard)
    S&W 686
    SA Ultra-Compact 9mm
    Ruger MkI
    (A small-bore extravaganza!)

    Long Guns:
    Rossi 92 .44mag lever gun
    K31 Schmidt-Rubin
    Remmie Nylon 66

    LOL...

    Ok, I'll bring the following:
    • Ruger 22/45
    • Glock 34
    • Kimber TLE
    • AR15 (one that needs sighting in really badly)
    • Rem700 LTR
    They all need a good cleaning, though, after the shooting bonanza we had at my family reunion on the 4th. I think this will be a new record low of the number of guns brought to a shoot. If anyone has any requests, speak up and I'll throw them in.

    Brute:

    If I recall correctly, you had/have a S&W M625 in .45ACP?

    No, don't bring it.

    I have a Webley MkVI (with the ground cylander making it suitable for .45ACP & S&W moon clips).

    I just wondered if you knew anywhere locally where I could buy powder-puff (low-pressure) .45ACP rounds with lead bullets (no jackets)? All the knowledgeable Webley-shooters caution against "high" pressure .45ACP rounds and jacketed bullets.

    I have not set up yet for reloading...and my classy British Lady lies unused, unloved. I must rectify this situation.

    I am thinking of waiting to build my reloadng bench and just buying one of THESE.

    BTW, the Webley Mk VI was originally chambered in .455 Webley which chunked a 265gr hunk of lead at a leisurely 650 fps. Nothing too dramatic, but I hear it got the job done.

    I do have a 625. I don't know where to buy ammo like you're describing. I would think that someone would have to load them for you, as I don't know about the commercial viability of a .45 round that might not reliably cycle an auto.

    I know someone that uses that stand (or similar) in their apartment. It does the job, but obviously doesn't offer the space that a full sized bench does.

    @#$%! Had to work. Looks like I'm going to maintain my ten-year average of shooting 0.73 times per year.

    TechBrute, EghtySx, & myself made it out there.

    It was HOT! Any further shoots in the summer, I recommend earlier than 10AM...like opening time.

    TechBrute brought out a nice AR & a Remmy 700 bolt in .308, as well as a Glock 34.

    EghtySx brought a sweet SAR1 with the prettiest furniture I ever did see on a AK as well as a suh-weet Clot Python with a double-suh-weet blued finish.

    I shot my Yugo M48 w/ scout scope, K31, S&W686 and "Brutus." Brutus is a Taurus 651 small-frame .357 made from titanium. I was informed that the muzzle blast to the sides when firing 125gr 3.57 Wincleans was considerable. POI with .357 is so low that I will likely carry .38spl+P 158gr LSWCHP. Also, it did not like repeated loads of .357. I think there is a heat dissipation/galling issue with titanium magnum revolvers.
