Took my son-in-law to the lacal gun shop for some full auto shooting. Perfect weather. Proceeds went to breast cancer awarness. They had a full auto Glock that was fun. Only thing was the gun jammed and the guy said it was because I had a limp wrist.[B)]

    took some friends shooting today. Not their first time, but I never cease to be amazed by how some people are so hard to figure out.

    Last time we took these friends shooting, we had the wife try my 12 gauge. She hated it and bitches about it all the time; how much it kicked, etc.

    This time, she had no problem with my wife's 20 gauge. No surprise there, but to my astonishment, she absolutely LOVED my 44 magnum. This is particularly odd considering she has some affliction that has necessitated the amputation of most parts of most of her fingers; she basically has no gripping area outside of her palm and a few full fingers and some partials. It didn't stop her from pounding away with the 44 though!

    She is also making her husband buy her a 357!

    Took some video of it. Check it out. You will have to excuse my wife. She thought she was being funny in the last video. It made me mad when I found out she did that.

    Its funny he is a really bad shot. I took him to the range one day and at 25yrds he couldn't hit a 3' dia target.

    I went to an indoor gun range today. I said I would not go to one ever after I watched a soldier commit sucide at Jims in Fayetteville.

    But my BIL and SIL want to start shooting. The don't know dick about guns and they talked me into going and teaching them.

    They joined Triangle Shoot Academy and I tell you its nice, expensive but nice.

    So they wanted to shoot Automatics only. I took:

    BHP
    G34
    G17
    G19
    S&W 3914
    1911
    G32
    CZ75
    Beretta 92FS

    SIL; She shot the best of the two. No bad habits and listen to what I told her.

    She like the BHP best and the 92FS next. Did a good job with the G19 and the CZ75.

    BIL: He had a shot a few guns before but not much. He shot the S&W 3914 fairly good and the 92FS.


    They had a great time and joined the range. I gave them the Beretta 92FS and 350 rounds of ammo so they can shoot on their own. I think the 92FS is a great beginners gun in a Semi Auto. They are safe, accurate and an easy gun to work.







    The crazy thing is. I shot my 1911 for the 1st time in about 4 years. I had it made in the the late 90's by Clark Custom Guns in LA when I was stationed at Ft Polk.

    I fell in love with it all over again.

    The crazy thing is I shoot 7-10 thousand of rounds a year in my G34 practicing for 3 gun matches but I really enjoyed shooting the 1911[:0]

    I am so ashamed.................


    I was a Glock-a-phile

    Hello my name is Sam and I have been shooting a Glock, but I really like shooting my 1911[:0]


    Is there a Glock AA out there.................I am sorry Gaston can you forgive me????


    I need to do about 20 hail Glocks and sleep with it under my pillow.

    I need help[;)]










    BTW

    No body liked the G32 in 357 SIG(My daily carry gun)Too much blast and recoil.......even more than the 45? Who would have thought.

    I stole a few hours and went shooting today. I took SIG 229 in .357SIG, S&W model 66 357mag, springfield mil-spec 1911 .45acp, and my lil kel-tec.

    I have always loved shooting my SIG, and since i got the S&W, it too brings a smile. but i think i like the springfield most of all. I have a friend who is giving me a bunch of parts for it. his dad used to work for rock river, and he has tons of 1911 parts.
    anyway, shooting was good. shot the new bersa in .45 acp. man that thing has some muzzle flip. almost unpleasant. almost.
    Grand Prairie PD was out there shooting, let me shoot the MP5 on 3 round, same with their ar, 3 round burst. the ar had an EOTech sight, which i really liked. now i want one.to tell you the truth i liked shooting the Air Force M-60 and m-240 better. always did love the 240.
    that's it for my day. tommorrow i get to clean them!!!!![:D][:D]

    There was a guy there that does cowboy shooting and it is amazing how fast he is. I was amazed.

    However when we moved the targets out and was shooting for closest to the center i could beat him 4 out of 5 times.

    He tried to talk me into cowboy shooting. He said i would do good at it because i can aim already. He said all i need is speed.

    There is no way i can go that fast.

    He is loading about 500 rounds for cowboy shooting so i can practise. I can not go out there and look stupid.

    He told me there is a 70 something old lady that is as fast as him but has a tighter group. Wow.

    Shot a S&W .38 special 5 shot revolver which was an awesome little gun, would be great for a concealed carry if you like revolvers.

    Para Ordinance 1911, excellent smooth shooting gun, 15 round magazines are wonderful too.

    Kimber 1911, Kicked like crazy, wasnt a fan.

    Beretta 391 Xtrema i believe. Awesome Semi-auto, great feeling gun.

    Benelli M4 Super 90. By far the most enjoyable shot gun i have shot so far in my life time.

    Plus we had the Rock River, Colt and Bushmaster AR's out there.


    We put about 1400 rounds into the woods, i had fun shooting today, great time with my stepdad and some of his friends. I cant wait to get another bunch of bullets and go back. Now i have plenty of guns to clean tomorrow haha.

    I went shooting today as well it sounds like you had a pretty good time. I thought I was having fun, and doing my part to get more brass for my dad to reload, but I took out my newest .357 Magnum. I actually forgot it last time (to many guns, some how left the new one) Anyway it's a S&W 386PD if your not familiar it's a scandium frame, 7 shot, with a 2'' bbl. If the fact that it doesn't weigh anything to begin with wasn't bad enough, it came with crimson trace laser grips. (hard plastic) I put 100 rounds through it today, and my shootin' hand is in pain from my wrist to my elbow. It can REALLY BARK!! Tommorrow I'll bring the old trusty big heavy steel guns with me, I'm getting to old for this high recoil stuff.

    Sounds like a good day to me. Gotta love those 3 round bursts.

    I took a friend that wanted to sight in his hunting rifle to the range last night. Only had about an hour of daylight left when we got there. I shot my .06 (have not shot yet) that I traded for a few years ago. Found out it has had a trigger job, sure was sweet. Also found out the scope is mounted so far off, that it can not be adjusted down far enough.

    I just had to put one through his 300 mag. Made my .06 feel like a 22. He was watching the rifle when I shot it and said flames shot out the barrel at least 4 feet. Oh ya, NOW I remember the kick. LOL Did get it sighted to 2" high at 100.

    Last time I got to hold something that had a selector lever with more than safe and fire, I started humping it and they took it away. I told them I just couldn't help it. I was like a dog in heat. I didn't get to shoot it cause they said they were afraid of what I might start doing after the magazine went empty. hehehe [:I]
