I went out to the range today and put a few rounds through my 300WM. I just got a can for it, and this is the first time I’ve shot it since getting the new stock. So, today was mostly about figuring out if the scope was anywhere close to dialed in.
Gen 3 Glock 23 in great shape. It was a police trade in and came with night sights which is awesome. Now I just need to take a CCW class.
Involved testing out the new Christmas present to myself. This was my absolute last chance to get out before a large winter storm rolls in tomorrow. Despite it being nice n’ sunny, on the way there it was 22F with a 10F windchill. Love it.
I bought another scary black rifle. Why? Because I liked it and found a decent deal. Pictured is a real HK93. I bought a Vector clone, because they’re mechanically equivalent at 1/2 to 1/3 the price. Also, Vector uses a ton of original German parts and only puts enough of their own US made parts in it to keep it…
I took delivery of my first single stack firearm on Monday, the Walther PPS. I had a chance to take it out to the range today and put a couple hundred rounds through it. It felt great and didn’t have a single hiccup. I was very impressed with how controllable the recoil was. Highly recommended.
Just gave this one a thorough inspection and deep cleaning. Plus, I was bored. No abnormal wear, but plenty of carbon fouling as always.
- Hooray for YouTube. It gave me confidence to partly take down my gun to replace the $3.50 action spring. And I am including a couple other items that cost about $20.
- I’m going to shoot this on Saturday and make sure it’s on target so my wife can hunt with it in a couple weeks.
- I hope I get it all back together.
Work boondoggling paid off - 2 weeks ago in Mississippi I was able to take off that Friday while everyone else was flying back and drive up to Anniston, Alabama to visit the CMP HQ. They have a number of offices in the area, spread out, so I didn’t get to see everything, and mainly went to the Armory to pick up my…
It's gonna be a good day.
Cheap fun. Even better when no one is at the range too.
My Saturday is off to a great start. I just spent the morning shooting a WWII military issue Remington Rand 1911. Hawt.
Yeah, that happened to me tonight.
My best grouping from my day at the NRA Range. 30 rounds of 9mm through a CZ75B Omega at 15ft. I’ll take it :)
This is what a flatscreen looks like after getting worked over by birdshot, 00 buckshot, .357 Magnum, and 5.7mm. Hadn’t shot 5.7 before. It was nice and powerful, but very smooth.
Serious Code Brown here.
FN Five-seven. 5.7x28mm
Shot my surplus Mosin-Nagant, muh AK and some other stuff. Amazingly, I found I could hit steel at 300 yards with the horrible Mosin-Nagant iron sights.
It's been a long while since I've seen a gunlopnik post. I just got an email newsletter that had some cool info in it, so have a cool gif courtesy of SilencerCo showing how a suppressor works.
