    Tried to shoot the Garand for the first time in a couple years, but couldn't get a rifle lane in the limited time after work.:(
    Ended up just plinking vintage pistols with a couple buddies- Vis35, Luger, M1917....
    Buddy #2 brought some plastic thingys that looked like Glocks- but then they all look like Glocks to me.:D

    Today it was my Tisas US Army 1911A1. Interesting day but also very strange. Everything worked as expected except for a couple Wilson Combat 8 round magazines. At each firing the magazine got tossed out of the grip. This happened with two different Wilson magazine but Mec-Gar, Ed Brown, CheckMate magazines all worked as expected. In all, five magazines, two each from CheckMate & Mec-Gar and one Ed Brown (likely also made by CheckMate) all worked perfectly but the two Wilson Combat 920 series would eject the magazine on each shot.

    Today I had to shoot .22 LR because I shot center-fire ammo on my last three range trips and that's an expensive proposition these days. I have an all .22 range day now and again.i shot my Marlin Model 780 bolt action rifle, which I bought in the early 80's. It has a Daisy BB gun scope on it. I also shot my Ruger Mk II Target model with the Bull Barrel. I didn't stay very long because it was a humid day today in Central Arkansas. Any trigger time keeps your shooting skills sharp.

    Yesterday I took out my Seekins 12” SBR’d “frankinAR” as home builds used to be called.

    Trying to get my IOR Valdada Bulldog zero’d but kept hitting the turret stops … finally got it on 8.5x11” paper target at 100 yards but still not zero’d … I’m starting to remember why it’s been sitting on the shelf
    :cuss: I may be in the market for something else.

    My NRL-22 Match gun. I installed an Erik Cortina EC Tuner and shot a string with it today. 2 shots each at 50 yards at settings 0 to 25. (0 is only 1 shot, I didn't have the turret at zero for the first shot. Sigh)) Not seeing anything definitive.

    I changed a couple red dot’s on SBR’d AR’s over to LPVOs and zero’d them and put one of the red dots on my braced, binary, suppressed 10/22 Charger and put a box of target 22 through my Nelson custom conversion 1911-22 … it was a good day.

    Not a clone of Anything. Notice the internal components. Such a stark contrast with the AKM's receiver, and nice computer graphics.

    The AK/AKM has a standard hammer etc. The VZ has a sort of 'striker', a linear rotating "hammer", does it not? See the computer graphics--
    This is academic, but none of the components are interchangeable - not even Mags.:what:For people who expect to fight a 'neighborhood Alamo':scrutiny:....Big Disappointment for their 50 loaded AK mags..

    Chief Engineer Jiri Cernak was about 27 years old when he designed their military rifle?

    B&T APC9 and a Steyr AUG.
    They were both shot on a live fire action simulator.

    We went down to my buddie's brothers place in the hills today to do some zero checking and general practice / plinking on several centerfires. I checked zero on my 300 WSM Savage Mod. 10 with its go-to hunting load and a couple other loads I had sitting around. IMG_6166.JPG . Also present were a Seekins Havak in 6.5 Creedmoor... IMG_6163.JPG A Christensen Arms in 300 PRC.. IMG_6169.JPG . A 340 Weatherby launching a Barnes 210 gr. TTSX in front of 87 grains of RL-19 (3 grains below the Barnes max.).. IMG_6177.JPG . Gave my friend 20 rounds of my Marlin 30-30's favorite handload with a 170 gr. Hornady FP & 35.8 gr. of Leverevolution powder (.5 gr. < Hodgdon max. for 170 gr. bullet) to try in his Winchester mod. 94 and am happy to report that they work great in his Winchester also. IMG_6171.JPG .. I owe him something, as I filled a doe tag right there on his place last fall; offered him some venison, but he didn't want any, so I fixed him up with some 30-30 ammo with new, unfired cases that shoot great in his gun. We punched paper and exploded a few water filled plastic bottles and jugs and a good time was had. Cleaning up the hillside impact berm afterward also turned up what must have been one of those Barnes copper 210 gr. bullets from that 340 Weatherby. IMG_6185.JPG .. Interesting and fun way to spend a few hours with old friends.
