    A) Ruger Mark IV .22 (Standard).
    After removing about 1/2" total from the recoil spring (Reduced Power by Volquartsen->> even this "stock" spring wasn't much help<<),
    this newish gun is - finally - extremely reliable with both bulk Federal 'blue box' and Federal Automatch brands.

    The Golden Bullet ammo was far more reliable even before the spring was shortened.

    B) 1940s or early 50s Savage 2B: .22 LR.

    New to me, Kimber K6s 2" DAO ... started with some 38 Special Personal defense, moved up to some 38 Special +P+ and lastly a cylinder of 357 ... the personal defense and +P+ were nice but the 357 was uncomfortable to my shoulder, it wasn't that much more recoil so its most likely more of a result of my arthritis than caliber itself.

    Then a couple mags from my SiG 556-SBR at 100, 150 & 200 yards

    Lastly, my Ruger 22/45 with a form 1 suppressor I'd built ... a little disappointed in the suppression but was still hearing safe even with mini-mags, standard velocity was of course better and although the sub-sonic ammo I'd brought wouldn't cycle the pistol, it was even quieter still.

    Hi...
    Spent a few hours at one of the local gun clubs where we have memberships.
    Shot my Model29, one of my Virginian Dragoons, my Dan Wesson and Ruger Super Blackhawk...all in .44Magnum.
    Also spent some time sighting in my new to me 3 screw Blackhawk in .357Magnum.
    Shot a few rounds through a recently acquired Dan Wesson .357Maximum chronographing loads and fine tuning the sights.
    Shot a couple hundred rounds through my two 1911 carry guns and a couple of my son's .45ACP pistols, as well as both of his 10mm handguns.

    Wandered over to the rifle range and discovered that while we had ammunition, we neglected to grab any magazines for the ARs. Shot a handful of rounds feeding them one at a time.
    Did run a couple of rounds through my Sako .308 rifle and my son shot a couple of rounds through his Tikka .308 at the 200 yd steel gong.

    Wind had gotten pretty stiff by that point, so we decided we had reached the point of diminishing returns and went to lunch.

    My M17 and M1922. Only used up about 150 rounds over an hour and a half. Oh, and a half-box of misc. .38s through my Security Six.:)

    New Taurus 856 3" stainless.

    A family member wanted a simple sd gun for cross country road trips. Simplicity was a priority. That meant revolver. Budget was tight. That steered me to Taurus - that plus the fact that the 856 is a 6 shot as opposed to the 85 and other J frame size revolvers being 5.

    Good value at just under 4 bills. 3" bbl is a plus , 6 shot is a plus , front sight very bright and functional. A Taurus is a Taurus. Refined as a S&W? No. Functional good return for the dollar? Yes.

    Volquartsen Black Mamba. I decided to shoot iron sights for a while so I put a new fiber optic up front and a new Ruger Target Rear Sight. Started sighting in at 7 yards 1 inch low so I would be dead on from 15 to 35 for Steel Challenge matches.

    This combination shoots great. I tried Federal 36 grain and the gun really like them. I then tried to put some Wolf ME through it and all 50 rounds went off with no problems. They did shoot better than the Federal but at almost 2.5 times the cost I'll leave the Wolf for next time I want to shoot Bullseye.

    Ruger Mark IV Standard.
    Here.................MAK 90, in 7.62x39. How was she able to pose with one of my imported AKMs, similar wooden furniture?

    Large plastic orange juice bottles jumping upwards and sideways on the Action Pistol berm! Weed eater cord let’s them “boogie” out to about three feet from the metal rod. The bottles jump like a startled cat.
    So nice Not to be concerned, not one bit, about marching to the "need a fairly tight group to "show" the Internet " drummer rhythm, although some similar-looking, Czechpoint VZ-58s can achieve 1.64 MOA (Rob Ski/AKOU, on Youtube).

    Shot my S&W22 Victory yesterday for CWP qualifying. I picked it because I have the most ammo for it. Took my class through Shooting Solutions in Loris SC. If you are in the Grand Strand or PeeDee area I would highly recommend them.

    22lr, I added Talon Grips for the rubber feel. Even though I have large hands, I didn't need the extra size over the standard grips.

    WisBorn,
    I feel the same way about my 415. I did a lot of trigger work on it to smooth out the grittiness and dehorned it for carry. I really smoothed out the trigger guard and the trigger as well.
    Here mine with my other two .41mag revolvers.

    I planned to shoot my CX4 and 1894 at the outdoor range today, but my back pain kicked in :(

    29 degrees. 20 mph wind out of the north. Plenty of snow. A good day for the SA marked NEW M91. My favorite Romanian and Polish surplus ammo was used.
