Went to the range with coworkers. One had never been to a range and only really shot shotguns shooting clays. So in an hour he got to shot about 12 different guns between what was brought. I brought my Riley Defense Ak74, actually took the time to get it sighted in. I also brought my TX22 Competition, SW 915, SW 3913, Rough Rider Bar Keep, Sig Mosquito, and my Henry .22 Golden Boy. Coworker brought his Sig p365x, Arsenal Sam7 Ak47, CZP10c, Ruger Wrangler, and a Sig 1911 9mm Elite
That Sam7 sure was smoother to shot than my Riley
the new Zastava ZPAP (7.62x39).

Yes, the slide looks slightly out-of-battery but it isn't. Yes, the takedown is installed correctly. Every single one I've seen in person is like this. It is back just a smidge, but the bevel on the slide is also wider than the bevel on the frame which enhances the effect. Makes it look funny, but it shoots amazing.
I got to shoot my Volquartsen Black Mamba today at a Steel Challenge Match. Even though I had a few problems it was one of my best matches scoring personal bests on three stages.
(above was actually yesterday)
...Also brought the 257 Weatherby out for the first time since June. Tried several handloads including some with some 100 gr. blemished bullets of unknown make. Still got decent groups with the "blems" so I'm happy, as I got a good deal on them. Fun times.
Oh my, is this a sweet revolver!!!
It is not the Anaconda I was huntin', but I did not have a .357 so I figured this will do for now.
Fired 33 rounds of 38 special (yeah, I know,,,) 6 of which the Mrs. shot.
And 38 (coincidence?) of 357.
This may become my favorite revolver.
After shooting my 460 S&W a few days ago, this is a very fun sidearm!
Out of the box, accurate, I haven't messed with the sights yet as I was shooting my homemade swinging 4 X 6 targets successfully at distance of ten and !5 yards.! Even with one crippled hand!
Man, wish I had this years ago.....
Gotta get that Anaconda!!!
Now I'm ready for Jackpot and Turkey Shoot season!
Zastava ZPAP in 7.62x39, very tight product.
The same guns used Last time.
Don't be afraid to slightly shorten a recoil spring in a .22 semi-auto, after lots of reading.
This has made the M&P and the Ruger Mark IV 99 percent reliable, even with Thunderbolt and Federal bulk.
Stop messing around ————
Took the Sig 226 Legion 9mm out of the safe and shot 100 rounds after a year shooting only revolvers. I need to shoot the semi autos more frequently but I enjoy the revolvers more for some reason.
A very thorough German friend (from Essen, Nordrhein-Westfalen) once brought his ‘85 “Green Box” Colt AR…with ammo, years ago.
…but forgot the magazine. No big deal I told him, and the ammo lasts much longer.
“Scheisse passiert”, as Forrest Gump tried to claim.
Good day at the gun club today.
Filled two large Folger's coffee cans and a .30cal ammo can with empty brass.
Everything from 9mm up to .44Magnum.
I shot an assortment of my .357Mag, .41Mag, .44Mag, .44Spl revolvers plus my .45AutoRim revolver and one of my 1911 .45Autos. I didn't get around to the .45Colt revolvers or the lever action pistol caliber rifles. My son shot those firearms plus a large number of the various semi auto handguns in 9mm, .40S&W, 10mm and .45Auto and just about all of the various revolvers that I shot as well.
No real problems other than the ejector rod assembly flew off my son's Taylor &Co. .357Mag SAA clone while I was shooting it.
Found all the parts except for the ejector rod housing screw, so will need to buy one of those.
Several hours of fun ringing steel plates and breaking rocks on the 25yd berm.
Did my speed drills at 7-15yds with one of my 1911s in .45ACP and all my DA revolvers in .357, .41Mag, .44Spl and .44Mag plus my .45AutoRim. Had one or two misses at 15yds but zero misses at 7yds.
Speed drills at 7yds with the SA revolvers went well accuracy wise but my times were nowhere near as fast as with the DA and 1911.
Got to shoot my Black Mamba at this month's Steel Challenge Match. Still slow but at least I made all my hits.
Zastava ZPAP (7.62x39).
