    Beware: Just bought a club member's ammo: tarnished .22LR: CMP brand (40 grain), 1600 rds.
    Tarnished brass, although the 5 white 325-rd. boxes look quite nice.

    Causes very frequent double-feeds in two handguns which Already >> work quite well with any new bulk ammo << - because I had already shortened the recoil springs in the M&P Standard and Ruger Mark IV.
    Of course sellers always respond " Yes, it was stored in a dry place". ---This can mean a truck.---

    Luckily this is only a fraction of my stored .22 LR. A second, even —weaker— spare recoil spring can be used with this lousy, weak ammo.

    * AMRaider: Congratulations on that new CZ PO1.

    Right now all I want to shoot is shotguns. So I would grab a couple different 12ga's and possibly a 10/22. It's weird, I've owned shotguns since I was a teenager and never really took them out or enjoyed shooting them until recent.

    This S&W Model 60 no dash would go with me for sure, because it goes with me everywhere as my carry gun. What might keep it company? Likely another S&W, probably a Model 17-2:

    Those revolvers remind me of the old gangster / FBI movies, but also of a famous short scene:

    "..in which case for You, I'd recommend a .38 Snub Nose......look a' dis...look a' dat...it's a beautiful little gun, nickel-plated...".

    Just one gun for a quick plinking run?

    My Ruger PC 9 w/Glock magazine insert. It’s like a centerfire 10/22 :thumbup:.

    Stay safe.

    Probably one of the M1s ... maybe one of my M14 or FAL Variant builds.

    Haven't been out shooting the heavier stuff for awhile. ;)

    'course ... those SVT-40s need some exercise, too, and I have plenty of ammo, so ...

    Decisions, decisions ...

    NIGHTLORD40K, sometimes you're just a troublemaker. :D

    DD,daily driver.....cast only 7-08,R700. With two,very distinct loads. Both are Lee 130's.

    #1 is a cream puff 1800fps using 4198.

    #2 ain't, it's a full house Varget jacketed velocity load.

    Probably my HK P30 as it gives me pure pleasure shooting it.

    Glock 48 that I've barely broken in. Haven't shot it since buying a couple of Shield Arms Gen II S15 magazines and accompanying metal mag catch.

    Oh man...this all kinda depends on factors of range particulars, whose gonna be there with us, level of range formality/control & etc. If Pistol, I'd grab my nifty little Ruger Wrangler single-action .22; bang-for-your-buck fun and EVERYONE on the range with you will want to try it out! The best 200 bucks any gun nut can spend now or ever unless they have a real-deal Colt New Frontier .22 Peacemaker in their stable already(!) If actual rifle distances were called for, like +100 yards...Today.... I would grab my "Bad Bitch" U.S. Caliber .30 M-1 (SA March 1944) which I keep a little dirty & always greased at all times so that I don't hesitate to take her out to shoot and let others shoot her. For many, even MOST of them...it will be their ONE TIME shooting an M-1 and they'll remember it always. And for a few...it will be their introduction to the 'cult of the M-1' and they'll be hooked and we'll have a chat about the CMP and soon after another M-1 Garand will find her 'forever home' just like a shelter puppy.

    Garands are a perennial range loaner favorite. I do insist on loading it for the shooter, however, unless they are very familiar with the gun.:thumbup:

    Something I have yet to shoot. One of these I guess. Or maybe all of the above. It's pitiful I know.

    I just don't have any one gun that I always grab. But I'll always grab at least one .38 or .357 revolver, at least one full-size 9mm pistol, and a lever-action rifle.

    Yeah, she's more pretty than any of the newer ones they are selling. It was a limited edition. When I saw it I was hoping it was a .405 but it's in ought six. Got her used. The owner only shot it four times.
