    Well as many have read we had the TN chapter shooting again this week. Seems atleast us Nashvillian's are starting to get together more often here in town. Was a good day tho. Midely hot, but decent breeze to keep us somewhat tollerable. First time for some of us at Owl Hollow...nice range and for the price, I think Ill go back. Had some issues but thats side tracking. I had to scoot out quickly, cant pass up a free pork chop dinner ya know ;). On to the pics. If any of you in the pics dont want them up...please let me know. I know some people dont like pics posted.

    Looks like a lot of fun. Cslinger invited me to this one, but I couldn't come.


    Looks like a perfectly good excuse to burn some powder...

    May need a temporary fix in Joelton...

    Was that an M1 Carbine (no, not the .22... another gun in the collection photo) with a 30-round mag and a red-dot? Details, please!

    More details on the muzzle brake for the Moisin. If it really tames the beast, I may just pick up one for myself.

    4v50Gary,

    The nagant with the break belonged to OEF_VET. I shot it , and having two beasts of my own, this one was a pussy cat. The break provided some nice air conditioning from the blow back. It was pretty cool. No pun intended.:D

    :D :D :D :D :D

    Can you tell I had fun?

    All right, who photshopped the gut onto me? I don't remember that being there!

    The M-1 is a Universal copycat, the red dot is a BSA that I picked up at Wally-World. It's a pretty accurate and fun plinker. But, I think the rifle is possessed be an evil spirit. If you try to slow fire, the weapon jams constantly. However, if you're rapid firing, she works wonderfully. I think the rifle is mad at being just an M-1 is giving its' best effort to be an M-2.

    I really wish I could remember where I got the brake for the M44. I could make a fortune selling them. I found it on the 'net last year for about $20-$25. It really helps calm that old Russian war-horse. So far, everyone that's tried it out has been suitabely impressed. Just don't be standing too close to the business end when it's fired. You will have some ringing ears!:D

    Speaking of standing too close, Julie, sorry about the brass from the AK. Seems that rifle tosses brass quite a distance.

    And what's with 'tactical poser'? I'm not a wannabe, I'm a has-been. :p

    All in all, it was a great day.

    Now, I'm going to strap on a flame suit. I didn't really care for the P7. It was ok, but just wasn't me. I know, it's sacrilige to say that, so I guess I'm a heretic.

    Darrin, that P22 would look good in my gun collection in place of my Astra you like so much. :D

    Yes it was a truely fun day. Thanks to everybody for letting us play with their toys.

    As for the Mosin muzzel break I have a shorty Mosin of my own and although I don't feel that it is a backbreaker it does have some reasonably stiff recoil.

    The break on OEF_VET's Mosin literally made the little beast kick less then our AR-15. It was almost bizzare. Like everybody else mentioned the coolest thing was the fact that it would blow a very substantial breeze back at the shooter upon firing. Like enough of a breeze to rustle your hair. Very interesting toy to shoot.

    My favorites of the day were Glockten's AR-10, .45-70 lever action and Intunes Ruger #1 and Beretta Silver Pigeon.

    By the way my offer still stands. I will give you my 10/22 stainless barrel, beautiful factory wood stock, 5 factory 10 round magazines, a 30 round pre ban magazine and a brick of ammo for your kind of well used, limited to two shots, heavy, obsolete Beretta shotgun. "Do it for the children!" Well at least one child.:D

    You just had to hear Intune's sone with my 10/22. He had been shooting a single shot .22 bolt when we handed him our 10/22. All you could hear was rat ta tat tat tat tat tat tat in these fast long strings and then Intune's voice. "Slow Down!!!" Then Rat a tat tat tat tat tat tat even faster followed by. "Is that slow enough dad?" :D

    It was great. Made my day.

    Chris

    Actually I was talking about Intune's boy, but now that you mention it he could do it for both of us.

    It was funny. Addison was perfectly willing to trade daddy's $2000 over an under for my 10/22. I was only trying to help. :rolleyes:

    That shotgun was beautiful and shot very very sweet.
