Yesterday S&W Plastic M&P at IDPA, today STI Eagle at USPSA.
Ruger 10/22, Marlin 80DL, Glenfield 60, S&W 64, Hgh Standard Sport King, Rossi Plinker.
First range trip for all but the 10/22 and Plinker. Yesterday morning it was 50 degrees at 11 o'clock, right now it is -10 with several inches of snow on the ground.
That's Montana weather for you......
Unusually warm weather, so yesterday I was working up a new 147 grn 9mm load, so I used 2 of my 9mms with the shortest chambers:
and my CZ75 "Accu Shadow Lite":
Shot the carbine in last week's IDPA match and tomorrow night it's the CZ for IDPA
P17 US Enfield, beater AR15, AR10, beater Glock 17, Colt commander, S&W MP22.
Pietta 36 cal BP. Two cylinders normally loaded. Two cylinders with home-made paper cartridges. My first time with the paper cartridges. No probs. Also shot my Glock 19 with various handloads and my wifes .357 4" Rhino, also with various handloads. Used new Pro-Chrono with blue tooth to ipad to record velocities of all. All around a hoot!
Ruger Mark IV Standard and the Romy SAR-1 AK (for dessert, like gun chocolate).
Both the Ruger Mark and the M&P .22 are so much fun (my first .22 handguns: age 63) that the Sig P228, CZ 'PCR' and .380 Mak see much less use than weeks ago.
ontarget: I watched my wife fumble a bit posting an ad photo to Armslist TN and I was totally baffled. But the other eight or so guns on Armslist sold with No Photos (I only charged used market prices, not the delusional prices) but ads always include an explanation why.
Luckily sending iPhone photos is simple.
Took my S&W 357 L-Comp out yesterday. Just got it back from S&W, it was only firing 5 out of 7 rds., they got that fixed.
I added some new rubber grips with wood inserts, really saves the middle finger knuckle when shooting.
Over all , it shot really well, kept on target at 10 yds. (4"circle) and didn't hurt my hand at all.
6 degrees, north wind of 20+ ... not sure what the wind chill was
Did not shoot
a boat load of 22lr (300 rounds) and 357 (200 rounds) mag today in my marlin 39a and 1894cb. getting ready for next month lever action silhouette match.
I squeezed in some time to shoot Compact handguns today; LC9, LCP2, SP 101 .38, M-49 .38, Cobra .38 and FEG .380.
I also made a big error by opening the inner door at the indoor range before I put my ears on. Took one step indide and BANG! rrrrrtiiiiiiinnnnnnngggggggg... I’m glad it was a full sized .45 and not a 14.5” AR the guy was shooting, rifle blast indoors SUCKS!
Man did I feel like a dummy!
I shot a Kel-Tec SUB 2000 that the Homicide detective thought was used in a murder a few months ago. They wanted a rush on the gun. I was able to eliminate it as the murder weapon very quickly. There were two different 9mm firearms used in the shooting and all the cartridge cases had drag marks from the firing pins. The Sub 2000 is a blowback. Blowbacks don’t leave drag marks.
Also got to shoot a Remington RM380. It was the first one to come across my desk. We just don’t see those used in crimes.
I worked today so the only thing I got to shoot was a Hilti DX 350. Gotta put hangers up somehow.
Ruger PC carbine---was first put off by the over grown 10/22-ness of them but finally broke down and bought one-----loving it so far.
Ruger American .45 Pro model---still not sure about this one---was shooting low/left (ya ya---I know)---but really think the sights are a bit off because I don't do this with any other handgun.
S&W M&P 2.0 9mm compact---really liking this one too---my G19's might be in danger of finding a another home because of my new Smith.
Maybe 25 years ago (back in the Clinton ban era) the ATF put out a list of the top 10 firearms used in crimes ... #1 was a S&W 38, I don't remember what the other 9 were but none were on the "ban" list and I remember it all boiled down to what looked scary. The ones like the AR, AK, HK 91,93,94, MP5 the UZI ... anything with a threaded muzzle, bayo lug, pistol grip, retractable or collapsible stock etc..
The thing I thought was the most stupid of the features prohibited featrues that made a weapon scary was the bayonet lug ... like there had been a wave of drive by bayonet-tings or something ....
Anyway, I was wondering if there was a new list ... or what is the most common firearm you see used in a crime?
Packing up for GSSF; G17, G43.
Did OK, not great with G43, dismal with G17.
The most common gun found in police evidence is the S&W SW and SD pistols. The SD9VE and SD40VE pistols are very popular due to their price and the fact that they function very well. Glocks would be next.
Didn't even shoot the bull. Home all day, didn't even answer the phone.
Plain Jane Gen Glock 23. Practicing for qualification in a few weeks.
Model 1895 Nagant.
S&W model 67.
A very revolving evening.
It supposed to be such a beautiful day today here in NE Kansas, I switched my day off from tomorrow to today! 55 degrees (just partly cloudy and wind of 10-25mph) I figure I'll need heavy bullets so I'm shooting my 7.62x39 rifles ...
One of these is not like the others ... Can you spot it?
On Saturday I put 400 rounds of reloaded 38 Special +p through my S&W 686+, and 50 rounds through a rented Sig P356.
It was a good time.
Just shot the bull with the local gunsmith, as the road to the range was drifted too bad to get in.
Fired a few rounds with 686 yesterday, targets not worth bragging about . Need to use a bench so I can adjust sights .
A recently ordered and delivered Star BM. Very nice shooter, but regardless of what I do, I have to pry the magazines out of it. She may be going back if I can’t resolve it. Called the vendor and they believe something may be bent. Said the mags should drop out, which is what I’d expect.
50 cal muzzle loader, a nice AR, a beater AR (which I broke again), Ruger in 300 B-O, beater Glock 17, beater Glock 23, S&W M&P22.
