Mossberg 590A1 Magpul
I have been casually looking for something in 22 Hornet, or K-Hornet, for some time; just waiting for the right rifle and time.
Something akin to that CZ would do nicely.
I spent a week fishing in that area for several consecutive years. That's where I learned the true meaning g of "bugging out".
I went back to the boat to get some gear out of the weather when I was overwhelmed. The ones that I didn't inhale were sucking my veins dry.
About 3hrs southwest of Ignace.
It was an oil filter perforation party in front of the lime pile.
We shot mostly 22s including a couple ruger mks. My 1911-22, his lcp 22, my t/c 10/22 clone, his Henry and Winchester rifles.
We weren't really shooting for accuracy but a clean run with 10rds on 10 filters was not uncommon.
The lcp. The mk with rds, the 1911-22 and the Henry were very popular.
My friend's son is contemplating a compact 9mm for ccw, so we took a break and produced a hellcat, a sig 365, and a glock 43x.
After trying all three guns, he seemed to prefer the sig365. It has the best trigger....and is the smallest by a hair. The fact that he made a clean run on 10 filters his first try didn't hurt either!.
I suggested that he not overlook the glock as they have so many offerings in basically the same platform . At least I'm impressed with their guns and prices.
After our shootaround we told hunting stories over a few beers for a couple hours.
My buddy guided elk and mule hunts for a few seasons. My son guided archery whitetail hints for a few seasons...so we had multiple stories of hunters who were "experienced" .....but actually clueless.
My buddy's hunter who shot the wrong buck out of a group of mulies....and my son's hunter who climbed in the pre-dawn deerstand and happily sat down on the foot platform instead of the seat. It was so dark that son couldn't see, but knew something wasn't right. He climbed up with him and saw he was sitting on the platform. He flipped the padded seat down and said "wouldn't you be more comfortable sitting here?"
I good time was had. Hopefully we can get together this fall for a whitetail hunt from my new blind.
That's not a blind!
It is a cabin, you could live there!
Not today, but yesterday.
I have a 32 foot extension ladder that won't be used at home any more and I figured it could be used around deer camp.
Mentioned that to my friend, huntin' buddy and co-owner of the camp.
"Let's bring it up there this afternoon".
Since we have a private range there now, it has become a tradition to bring guns and ammo on every trip.
So off we go @ 5:30 P.M.
Scott brought 2 rifles, an old pump Remington 22LR which i don't recall the model and a synthetic stocked and scoped .22mag Ruger. (Me wants that!)
We didn't shoot those.......
The biting flies became bad again and toke a shower in bug dope. 25% deet, again........(black flies, mosquitoes,deer flies and horse flies, OH MY!)
Scott brought this again,
His new SAR 9.
I'll tell you what, It is a good pistol for $269 plus tax.2-18 round magazines and everything you see here.
It was comfortable to handle and shoot!
If it ever goes on sale again (at Dunham's) I may have to take a trip!
I brought these two.
My 2020 Python and a Ruger Mark IV Hunter.
Trying to burn up the Thunderbolts made me adjust the rear sight four clicks down.
I know, right, but we were shooting only 10 to 15 yards.
70 rounds through the Ruger lickety-split after that adjustment.
Only shot 24 rounds through the Colt.
My cast 158 grain bullets over 12.5 grains of 2400 in new Hornady cases touched off by CCI 550 primers.
I am really happy with this 357 revolver and load!
Sorry, no target pictures yet to show off.
We were shooting steel.
Had fun, the weather was perfect, low humidity, in the 70's but the biting flies, ugh!
The flash went off a couple of times before I switched it off ,as that washes the Green tinted Parkerizing and makes it look funny .
Anyway ALL matching #'s with a Birch array fleck stock . His M1 D was also a Birch stock . I do know from reading that mixed hardwood stocks were originally used ,as heat of production ramped up and what was available and Dry was used . I read somewhere only Walnut was used and other woods were restocked ,NOT true . Had a Good Friend way back in the day ,who was Pachmayr 's #1 Seat engraver . And Fred carried one in WWll ,that was Beech wood ,so I'll assume he would have known .
I added the sling as it was oil paper cosmoline wrapped with Dept. HQ designation # and DoD stock stamp # in addition to Armory inventory # . Unfortunately as hard as I tried the paper went south ,
things age eventually .
I have one of those with a synthetic stock. I love it!!
I put new diodes in both of my red dot sights for competition. I Replaced my Railway 12 MOA dot on my 617 with a 3 MOA Fast Fire III AR. Groups tightened up enough that I'm glad I was told to try it.
On my Black Mamba I switched dots from 12 MOA to 6 MOA. I still get fast aquisition and give up nothing in the way of accuracy. I think this will be my new Steel Challenge gun.
I fired CCI Mini Mags in the Revolver and Norma Tac 22 in the Auto. 100% reliability on the Mamba and the 617 fired everything on the first strike but after only 4 reloads I had to bang the ejector rod to get the cases out.
Ergos aren't That bad. I never expected to be spoon-fed.
Jags has and likes many rifles!
Had my CCW renewal class today
Methinks Jags has and likes many CZ 527s!
