    Crap Draven, how much did you lose? :(

    And the LB Grand Prix is this weekend? Cool, I'll be in/near LB for my cousin's baptismal!

    New England Westinghouse Mosin-Nagant M91- sporterized by Bannerman in the '30s
    Universal M-1 Carbine with red dot
    Marlin (Glenfield) model 60 with scope
    Yugo 59/66

    250 rounds of .30 carbine (including 100 rounds in Lake City brass)
    55 rounds of yugo surplus (NNY headstamp) 7.62x54R
    40 rounds of wolf x39
    40 rounds of yugo surplus x39 (the stuff on stripper clips)
    @150 rounds of winchester Xpert .22

    In ammo can with price sticker still on it.

    Funny thing is, they left 40 rounds of SA surplus 7.62 NATO- so they knew a little about firearms, and knew the ammo didn't go with any of the rifles.

    That stinks dude.
    Did you give a copy of the serial numbers to the police and everything?
    I'd start doing some footwork and searching all the local pawnshops or something.

    Where exactly did this happen, anyways?

    Still digging for the serial numbers...

    Riverside county, CA. Off highway 243 between Banning and Hemet.

    Two hours drive away.

    Wow, looks like you guys are dropping like flys. :uhoh: I guess I will cancel this month's shoot, and just schedule one for next month. You guys take care of yourselves until then.

    Sorry to hear that. When we do the next shoot, you don't have to bring anything - just yourself. ;)

    So no shoot then for sure? I missed the last one and have been awol from thr but I was like 90% sure to be at this one. Oh well, and I was planning on doing the 1911 thing though my 1911's are nowhere near as fancy as some of the stuff you people have.

    I plan on just hitting the indoor range Saturday anyways though to try out my newly acquired 380acp Russian Makarov so thats ok. Maybe I'll make one of the Prado shoots eventually too.

    Remember, SGVGC will probably be closing soon. We should take advantage while we can.

    BTW, sorry Draven to hear of your loss, I've heard the high desert area is a place ripe for that stuff to happen if you are forced to leave guns unattended in such a circumstance. Don't get discouraged and just start rebuilding little by little. I only ever had one gun stolen, but it was a hell of a piece to lose, Colt combat target stainless steel 45acp, I'm still sad about it!

    Are you going Rich?

    The last time I went to a match was a few years ago; I don't think I've got the mettle anymore. :uhoh:

    But still, it sounds like fun! Keep in mind, I'm strictly an amateur and only have my CZ75, a few normal cap mags, and I use a USGI M12 universal holster, belt, and mag pouches. None of that fancy kydex stuff here. :D

    James. Most likely, I have to figure a few things out. Send me an email and your phone number. I most likely will be going, I'll let everyone know by tonite whether I'm going for sure or not.

    Hey, don't worry, I completely suck at action shooting also :D

    I will be there, as will my Colt (and also my CZ75B, just in case :p ). Thanks for the heads up, Richard. And James, it will be good to see you again.

    Can we say that this will be insanely fun!!

    They're gonna BBQ after the match and bring out the lawnchairs to get ready for the 2nd half of the shoot. LOL. Bring ammo, LOTS and LOTS of ammo :D

    Thanks for coming out guys!!

    Dang.... I am so tired. What the heck am I doing up at close to 3am posting....


    What a day, James, Mike and Ken, thanks for coming out guys! We represented the 1911's too the SIG guys! :D

    If you guys can, cruise over to the SIGForum,

    http://sigforum.com/groupee/forums/a/tpc/f/320601935/m/295109455/p/2

    The pictures and comments are all posted there.

    James, if you can post all the videos and pictures over there too. I'm definitely looking forward to the videos :D


    Hmm... I want a X5, and a P220 Sport, and a FN 5.7 and a STI open gun and... and... and...

    Mike and James, hope you guys enjoyed yourselves for your first USPSA shoot. You guys did awesome!

    Ken, nice job blowing the head off of the target. LOL.

    Til' next time. :)

    Wow...been a long time since I've posted anything here. Looks like I'm missing a lot!

    The SIGforum.com SoCal group shoot events are open to everyone who would like to come: friends, family, guests, new shooters, old hands - all are welcome!

    To the THR brethren who shot at the March 25th shoot, and yesterday's April 22nd shoot at Jojo Vidanes's Running Gun IPSC club shoot at Raahauge's in Norco - wow, what a blast! We had an absolutely fantastic group of shooters and I have more fun shooting with a fun-loving group of shooters than just about anything else I do. Thanks! I can't wait for the next one!

    And I think going forward, I'm going to have TWO separate SoCal SIGforum.com group shoots and ALL are welcomed, even...err...especially ;) THR shooters!

    1. SoCal SIGforum open group shoot (non USPSA-style): once every 2-3 months at various ranges around SoCal (Orange County, Los Angeles area), and vary between indoor and outdoor ranges. I think the next one will either be at Oak Tree and shoot their wonderful steel range, or rent a private bay at Burro Canyon or Angeles Shooting Ranges and set up our own paper and steel targets (I'm buying a bunch like BamBam-31's).

    2. SoCal SIGforum USPSA shoot: once each month at Jojo's Running Gun IPSC club at Raahauge's in Norco. And every few months, we'll hit an IDPA shoot, and even a night shoot. If you ever really wanted to get your arse handed to you and simulate night time defensive shooting, an IDPA Night Shoot will do it for you. THAT's a real eye-opener for sure. I did one late last year, my first, and I'm STILL smarting from that one.

    (By the way, for Jojo's Running Gun IPSC shoot at Raahauge's Norco, they have shoots EACH Saturday, so no need to wait for our group shoots. Just show up, and either Jojo or Jimmy or any of the other squad leads will hook you up with a real friendly and fun-loving squad - you'll have a great time and lots of laughs.)

    For more info on IPSC/USPSA & IDPA practical shooting (everything you ever wanted to know from defintions, history, differences, equipment, getting started, tips/tricks, range commands, and links to 90+ FREE video clips (over 1 hour of aggregate video time!), click here: -->

    Some thoughts on yesterday's shoot:

    I hate all you skinny guys. Pay no attention to the fatso in the blue shirt with the stogie in the videos (and that's after dropping 15 lbs since end of February...guess I better quit fooling around get serious about exercizing!).

    Black Majik brought out one of his Black Majik 1911's and smoked us. Drives his gun as fast as he drives his car (but not as crazy). Few more shoots under your belt and you are really going to leap up in the rankings. :cool: If I don't get off my butt and practice, you are going to hand it to me right quick, mate.

    Beetle Bailey, what can I say...it's always the quiet ones you have to watch out for!
    (see Exhibit A "point-blank head shot", your honor). Workin' out any issues, my friend? firedevil.gif
    (edit 24-April-06: BB, you are CORRECT sir, Kevlarman's EXCELLENT video shows you approaching the target behind the barrel, putting one through the terrorist's COM A-zone, and then, without hesitation and with extreme prejudice, shoving your muzzle just about right on top of the terrorist target for a head-shot A-zone, and calmly squeezing the trigger like you were pouring yourself a glass of orange juice before sitting down outside in your easy lounge chair and reading the morning paper.)

    --> http://sigforum.com/groupee/forums/a/tpc/f/320601935/m/295109455/r/664107855#664107855

    BamBam-31: rock solid shooting! Classic LEO/mil form. Scoring your shoots was getting boring: "2 alpha, 2 alpha, 2 alpha..." ;)

    Kevlarman: amazing reloads! And thanks for the pics and videos! And I love your CZ 75BD. I regret selling mine and will have buy a new one after shooting yours. A P-01 and SP-01 is also on order. And you are truly living proof that you can shoot stock equipment with whatever wacky holster, belt, and funky mag pouch/holder/carrier/four-pack-31-Flavors-ice-cream-holder thingy and STILL spank the competition. :neener: At some point, it's the Indian, not the arrow. (btw, what video camera and digital camera were you using - those videos are fantastic! And the pics are crystal clear!)

    And next shoot, we're gonna settle things with one of these (but armor plated and magnum/high-velocity rated) (on order :)):

    [​IMG]

    Until next time! And spread the word!

    Cheers!

    Hey Eyon,

    Just wanted to express my thanks for the great time I, and I'm sure everyone else, had yesterday!

    It was very gracious of you to provide a whole bunch of guns and equipment, not to mention lunch and drinks!

    It was nice meeting everybody, and I hope that we all will be able to do this again some time soon.

    Now I have to decide on whether or not I want to continue shooting my CZ75, or step up to .45 and use my Glock 30. :D

    Oh yeah, more pics and video to come soon!

    as for the cameras, my digital still camera is a Panasonic FZ20 (5 megapixels), and the camcorder is a Canon ZR200 MiniDV. As you stated, it's not really about the equipment, but about how you use it! :)

    Pointman1776 Thanks for introducing USPSA/IPSC to me - I really enjoyed it. I feel lucky to have a really friendly person like you who is good at explaining things to help guide me. Also, thanks for the kabobs and the "after-shoot shoot." You were very generous with your guns and ammo. And I got to meet a very good bunch of people :cool: .

    As far as the "head-shot" goes, I shot that "terrorist" once in the chest, and thought "that's boring, the "Alpha zone" is already so shot up it's probably just tape holding up tape." So I fired the second round into the little "Alpha zone" on top :p .

    If you are interested in the same exact steel swinger target BamBam-31 brought, I'll try to get a link to the website. IIRC, Mike ordered it online and picked it up at the Costa Mesa gunshow, as they sometimes have a booth set up.
