    Sat on the back porch in a T shirt. Temps are near a comfy 60 degrees out there. Couldn't pass up a pretty day to shoot a bit. Neighbor was up this weekend and I don't like to shoot when she's here, but she went home this morning to Houston.

    I shot my new Ruger Wrangler, just trying to get used to it. I'd load and go out to the 20 yard range and shoot at my 6" gong target. I was getting tired real fast due to my blood cancer/anemia problem, so I went inside and got a tin can the diced tomatoes came in that I put in the elk chili I'm cooking for supper. I tossed it out about 15 yards into the yard and sat down in a chair. I walked that can out to about 25 yards off hand shooting from the chair. Good old fashioned plinking, what .22s are all about! Yep, it's a wonderful day in paradise.

    60 degrees sounds delightful...we didn't break 35 today and have a snowstorm bearing down on us. Thank God for indoor ranges...going tomorrow.

    My son and I went to the indoor range today as it was COLD!

    My son shot his Ruger SR9c and I shot my SAR B6c.

    We have a drill we do where we pretend we are in a Wal-Mart and a terrorist walks in with an AK47 and is shooting people not in your direction.

    We put the target at about 75 feet away to approximate the terrorist in the front of the store and you about half-way towards the back.

    You shoot twice with the assumption that you had better get him with those two rounds because if you miss he will likely take you out quickly.

    I was not successful on my first attempt. The picture below was my second attempt. Success! Notice the round to the adams apple in his beard?

    Some Walmarts seem like 100 yards from the back of the store to the front doors. Our local Walmarts don't, but a lot of super walmarts seem HUGE. As bad as my milofibrosis hits me, it is a chore to get around those big walmarts if all the electric buggies are being used. From the back of the store, that'd be a heck of a shot off hand.

    Sometimes I practice shooting from a pew to the back of the church (visualizing it of course). We have a small denomination. It's not that far.

    I wanted to do the demonstration with my son to get him thinking.

    Sometimes, retreat is better than engagement, especially if you are outgunned and the distance is too far for a reliable shot.

    My buddies and I came up with quite a few scenario's we do at the outdoor range. Most are not suitable for the indoor setting but this one was fine.

    I got out this afternoon! My wife has the girls over for lunch and I took that as an omen to get out to the range! Brought the 300 BLK 10.5" and it was the first time with the 3.5" dropin trigger and the SB4 brace. I had used the lower on my 5.56 before, but this the the bigger boy's first outing. Ran some 220 grain downloaded to get close to sub-sonic...don't think I made it but they all fed and extracted and were accurate. Also tried the Xtreme 150 grain PFN and got them to feed. The other time out with them had the nose diving into the chamber lugs. I shortened the COAL and not think I'll be able to use them all up!! Yay!!

    The Rossi M92 got some action and ate everything I fed it...all 38 Special. I had brought the 995 TS Hi Point and didn't shoot it. Switched over to handguns.

    Paying homage to JMB I broke out the PT1911 SS loosing 45 ACP 230 grain rounds as it should be. Then sent some more down range in the Sig P320. Some feed issues with that one, possibly due to the reloads.

    The last one out of the bag was the Canik TP9 SFX...i am strongly considering getting an ADE reflex sight for this one.

    Sorted the brass, put the guns up...it was a good day!

    Just got back from 9 Millimeter day at the range. Had my G2S, SR9 and CMMG AR pistol, and 220 Round of 9mm ammo. Tried out two new 32 round Promags (yes I know) for the AR. Poly over metal, 5 star rating on the GunMag Warehouse site, $15 each, I'm cheap.

    G2S wouldn't lock open after the last round, but I shot the best groups with it, so it didn't bother me that much. Disassembled the mags during cleaning and slightly bent the top of the spring, problem solved. Buffer on the AR slipped the spring. After I disassembled the lower to fix it, I noticed the buffer spring had a flat end and a rounded end. I never knew the buffer spring had a "front end" and a "rear end" but when I reassembled with the flat end forward, I didn't have anymore problems. It's just a standard carbine spring with a heavy buffer, so I'll look to see if anyone has a specific 9mm heavy spring I can put in. The Promags were Promags. One worked, the other had issues. My SR9 is what gave me fits. It was giving me light strikes. The trigger felt odd, so the striker may not have been properly setting. Had it apart to clean, and couldn't see anything obviously wrong. All over the paper at 15 yards, but the last 30 rounds I shot through it grouped fairly well and I didn't have any sloppy triggers or light strikes.

    Spent 5 1/2 hours shooting ARs, 22 semi auto pistols, and a couple of 9mm Glocks. Gorgeous day for it today!
