    My 1st Gen Universal with my IBM trigger pack replacement and different stock. Its still a little loosy goosey in the stock, but it fired both magazines without a hitch. :)

    My latest Sig P225, 1997 vintage, which was bought yesterday, and the (older) Maadi AK.

    A friend from Germany finally got interested in owning a "true" P225 or the (only) police P6 version, which was carried by local or state police in NRW, his native state of Nordrhein-Westfalen, among other states and agencies.

    It would be his only German handgun besides the Walther P22.

    Ran a couple boxes of ammo through one of my Colt 1903s today. It's a Centenarian and so doesn't get out as often as it once did. It still ran flawlessly and kept all 5s.

    Well, I shot for the club's hunter rifle sight in service and fired 4 .30-06's, 1 .308, 1 .243, 1 22-250 and 1 .338 Lapua.
    Best part was I got to shoot the owners' ammo! :D

    Ruger LCR 38+p. Helping a friend slaughter 2 hogs and his 22 rifle couldn't get the job done.

    Earlier in the week I finally got one of the Beavers that has been building dams in the drainage ditch at the Duck Club. Used a Ruger 77-22. Later in the week I fired my Muzzle Loader just to see if it was still on. The season opened today but I didn't make it down for opening morning. Kind of resting up between trips out to load the truck and 4X4 right now, and planning to be there this afternoon. Hoping to shoot it again this week, maybe for real this time!

    Last Saturday I shot the Savage 223 at a deer using my reloads. Sunday my friend and I processed the aforementioned deer... :)

    Been blasting my stainless CDL R700 30-06. Lee 309-150F,freshly annealed cases,Federal primed,and started working up a hot predator load with Varget.

    Found a SWEEEET spot @37g. 5 shot groups with a Luepold VXII 3-9X40,running the rounds up through the mag. Shooting quickly off a bull's bag. Put it this way,shooting a beer can @100,if you can't keep them inside the drink hole...... it ain't the loads fault. The 9X max on scope is holding it back a bit,but not much. This load will tear ragged holes @100. Haven't chrono'd yet but,it's getting on up there in intensity. Primers and my shoulder as the metric.

    I invited our pastor and his family to the gun range on any given Saturday a few weeks ago. On Thursday he texted and chose yesterday. So yesterday we took him and his three kids to the gun range with our 22 rifles, and I took my 357 mag and my 22-250. My main concern was his daughter who gets news from left wing sources only. She was having a blast shooting, then she asked if she could shoot my 357. Dad said sure and that pulled her over to the right some. It's always good to enlighten someone who has no real experience and only sees one side of a conversation. A friend and his brother showed up with a S&W 500 mag and blew their minds.

    Gotta like that load #5! Just a little minor tweaking (as opposed to twerking) and you have a bonified one-holer on your hands!!! Nice shooting, BTW.

    A few years ago, I had a Savage M12BVSS in .243 Win. that was an honest to goodness 1/4" 5-round grouper with its favorite hand load. It was so easy to shoot consistently it was boring. I sold it and have been kicking myself ever since. :cuss::cuss::cuss:

    An 1894 Remington DB shotgun, with two sets of barrels, one Damascus, one ordnance steel, purchased 30 years ago with the intention of restoration, it had a cut off stock, LOP 12inches. Busy with life, work and family it hung on the wall in my basement gun/hobby room. Finally installed a two inch recoil pad, dismantled and cleaned the workings, loaded up some black powder 12 gage loads and took it to the range. Happy to say it functioned fine, didn’t blow up and the light loads of #8 shot patterned well. A 120 year old gun, locks up
    tight, bright shiny bores. Won’t get shot much by me but who knows one of the grand babies might shoot it when it’s 150. ;)

    The solution for me, turn it into a roofed over screen porch room. ;)

    Today was a pair of JP Sauer 38h, one made in June or July of 1941 and the other is September of 1942. Both were very accurate with the two brands of 32acp I brought with me but the difference between the former made when Germany seemed unstoppable and the latter made just about a year later when Germany was on the retreat in Russia, getting pushed out of North Africa, facing yet another enemy with yje US entering the war and even the Battle of the Atlantic turning against Germany reflect the fact that manufacturing, labor, QC and supply were all already being affected.

    While the earlier 38h was smooth with no machining marks and deep bluing the latter had almost no bluing and both the frame and slide showing machining marks even on the external surfaces.

    My 375 H&H. Checked my group and then played around at 400y shooting a steel plate. I have a good 200y zero and was ringing steel the steel plate of the bench and shooting sticks.

    Got to shoot some new to me revolvers. A 686, GP-100, and a Redhawk Kodiak. All were a joy to shoot.

    Got some practice in in Monday with one of my EDCs my PC 9mm Shield.

    I also shot my Ruger P95. I've shot it several times since it came back from Ruger to repair a broken decocker and I'm confident in its reliability now. I'm going to make it my nightstand gun

    Every Wed is range day along with the weekend days. Have been shooting the heck out of this pair. APX grip vs Standard grip

    sah6OpU.jpg and every range session the Beretta Pico will get exercise.
