Good groups there. Fine shooting. I have been breaking out my .45ACPs lately for some shooting time. Got some sized and deprimed brass in the tumbler trying out the pin cleaning technique.

Nice shooting!! I love to shoot mine as well. What range was this? Enquiring minds want to know!! :D

Try giving the trigger a little finger. That should move the groups back to the right. I have the same problem with mine and that brought the groups back to the center.

I'm working on the trigger control.

I lived in Savannah in the mid to late ‘80s/early to mid ‘90s. Where is Quickshot located? And, in General, lot of gun stores and ranges there now?

I moved to Savannah from Houston, TX in 1996. Really would rather be in TX.

Quickshot Savannah is located at the intersection of White Bluff and Eisenhower across from Hunter. The only other shooting range in Savannah/Chatham County is Patrick Industries in Garden City. Mission Essential has a range in Hinesville and Palmetto State Armory has one in Bluffton, SC.

There are seven actual Gun Shops in and around Savannah. Two in Richmond Hill and a whole bunch of Garage FFL's. Gun Business is good in Savannah. Of course, you have the Pawn Shops as well.

If you left her in the mid 90s, you wouldn't recognize the west side of Chatham County. Major population growth and expansion. I'm not sure where all of the jobs are that brought all of these people here. :)

Well, Houston is a pit hole of traffic jams and crime. I wouldn't wanna live there, don't know about you. I enjoy RURAL Texas, though. :D Houston has grown with the shale oil boom as has other cities like Midland/Odessa. Too many people, not enough land.

As a younger, single man, I loved living in Houston. There was anything there that you wanted, and a lot you didn't.

If I ever moved back to Houston, it would be into the Clear Lake area.

If not there, I would go to Conroe, Livingston, Montgomery or Huntsville.

I was last in Houston in 2010. Can't imagine what it looks like now.

I live 60 miles west of Rosenberg down 90A and I feel I'm too close to the place. It has driven land values up as Houstonians look for a place to get out on weekends. We have weekenders with cabins on either side of us. Nice folks and they aren't here during the week so I shoot mostly during weekdays so as not to disturb them even though they said it's no biggy to shoot. When I shoot, it's usually .22s anyway. :D We go to either Columbus or Hallettsville to shop. No, they don't have much other than a Walmart and not a super duper one at that. :D If I need anything from Academy, I'd rather run the 60 miles to Victoria than the 60 miles to Katy. Katy just plain sux what with the traffic there off I10. I 10 all the way to San Antonio is pretty much a mess anymore.

Nope, I avoid Houston area at all costs. I'll only go there if I absolutely HAVE to and then I'm armed to the teeth. :D Crime has gotten pretty bad, there, but it does give the news folks a lot to talk about. We're isolated not only by miles, but down 2 miles of rough private dirt road to the very end of it. Ain't no homies in their lowered fart can cars gonna make it down here. In fact, anyone coming down here ain't just passing through as the road dead ends here. Makes it hard for anyone to case the joint. Between myself and the permanent neighbor across the road, we'd have 'em in a crossfire. :rofl:

I got a nephew that works down town Houston now but lives in the Woodlands area . Only for the money but closer to fishing areas and hunting places than I am :( . I have the XDs .45ACP and have always liked it well ! After you practice with it several times you'll find your sweet spot and wont really even have to aim to hit your target . It's that good of a gun , easy to get use to and get good with it . I've got where I can hit the butt end of a 20 oz sprite bottle at over 50-ft now .

Thanks!

I arrived in Savannah in 1986 and left in 1995 and know exactly where White Bluff and Eisenhower intersect. Other than living on campus at MMC during residency, we lived for a while on the south side off Abercorn. Did my residency at Memorial Med Center on Waters Ave and practiced with Chatham Medical Associates for a few years before moving back closer to home. And, you’re correct in that I don’t recall the LGSs being prominent and certainly don’t recall “garage FFLs”. Glad to know that the firearms business is brisk!

Keeping in mind that Savannah is a port city, and second only to Metro ATL in population, not hard to imagine the population explosion. I would hedge a guess that the population increased by 30% during my tenure there as the late ‘80s - entirety of the ‘90s began an explosion of population not seen there in a while; it changed the social demographics of the area immensely which I suspect continues through today. Unfortunately, a lot of the folk who move there do so NOT related to job opportunities. But I expect the paper companies and port industries continue to expand; gotta keep in mind that Gulfstream is based there and now Daniel Defense Arms sprung up near there as well.

Good shootin’ Carry On!

My youngest son is dating the great granddaughter of the feller who invented Sprite. So, make sure to keep buying Sprite to shoot at.

Well, IMHO that's about all it's good for. :rofl: But, tastes vary.
