More good for you....
I had a forum member over the other week with a PC9. What a handy little carbine. Granted, we weren't shooting great distance, but that thing was a virtual tack-driver.
Conditions outside are gorgeous, so I'd better bring out the m96 again.
A friend with a fancy 10-22 build just left after sampling some assorted .22 ammo. Seems the Federal "Ultra Match" runs pretty well in his gun.

Looks like an ideal day for some trigger time. Range available!
Come down and blow off the extra .44 Magnum, .30-30 and .30-06 ammo that's lying around here.
I'll join you with my econo 6.5 Swedish and 7.62 NATO loads.



Offer expired...sorry!

Who ya gonna call?  Can Busters!







No, not the result of lighter cast bullet loads. They do disrupt, but not quite so much!

Went to Blue Trail today. Had to use up some Tula ammo that I’m not allowed to shoot indoors. What great weather! A very pleasant way to spend a Friday morning. Then I ate lunch in the snack bar. Good times.

PS- Want to add that this was only my second time there. The first time I went a couple years ago left a little to de desired. The people there were way more friendly this time around. Must be this good weather.

Range open today..
Shade makes for comfortable shooting, even for girly-men that wilt easily.
Plenty of assorted ammo on hand...many calibers that I don't shoot: 7.62x39mm/54mmR, .303 British, 7mm/8mm Mauser, .30 Carbine, .30-30 WCF, .30-06 Springfield, .25-06 Remington, .243 Winchester, .270 Win., .357 Sig, .41/.44 Magnum, etc.

Come on down. I have some odds and end LSWC that I should blow off in the .45 ACP, so we can do a friendly PPC match, if interested (or just blow up some water-filled cans for recycling).

85 degrees, sunny, no wind

Today was Colt Gold Cup and Glock 29 on steel day.  Switching back and forth between guns.

Glock makes god awful triggers!!!!!!!!!!!!!  The worst of any gun I have.  Gaston(sp?) should be slapped upside his head.

I'm very used to 10mm now, so I barely notice the recoil.  When I first started with 10mm it took some getting used to.

A shooting friend had his G29 over the other week, but he usually just shoots stout .40 S&W loads out of it (he has a locker full of this fodder apparently). I guess the case stays tight against the bolt face, as it seems to function perfectly fine. He actually states that these .40 loads are punishing when fired in his G22.
He thinks these are +P+P+P+P to the ninth degree, but if they were that stout, I'd think we'd see the Glock bulge going on here...?
Well, keep shooting, in any event!

imahangtia, how low have you gone with your .45 Colt loads? I did up a few 230g LRN with 6.2g of Unique; should be under 600 fps. We'll see if they make it to the target.
What is your pet load in the 10?

I have only done 50 or 60 .45 Colt (low end specs for now).  Have not chronographed them.  Won't do much with .45 Colt for a while yet.


10mm - 180gr FMJ with 7.6 - 7.7 Hodgdon CFE Pistol powder (Hodgdon's max load is 7.6).  7.7 is giving me 1,130 - 1,170 fps

 Busted some clay targets today.   Its been many years since the trap gun has come out of the safe.  What a nice day out today!

They're under new management, so I think they're trying really hard to make a good impression on people. I'd love for them to open the 200 yard range again. Gonna go there tomorrow and perforate some paper.
