Great Day!

When I got up this AM I had an e-mail waiting for me from my buddy Shon who has been in A-stan.
He landed at Ft. Bragg last night and will be stationed at MacDill AFB with SOC.
Sure glad he made it home safe!
Weather here is gorgeous. Went shooting again with the 1911. (running low on ammo and no place close to re-stock) Did weak hand, strong hand and both hand. Strong hand only grouped best?
This semi-auto deal is a change from the revolvers for sure. I have a deep appreciation for what Cliff was able to accomplish at Top Shot.
ISD, I'm looking to head out to St. Pete/Tampa sometime to hook up with my bud. I'll let you know when it gets scheduled. It'd be nice to meet you face to face and shake hands.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

Great day indeed

I had planned on heading to the range today but my house is falling apart...lol
Glad your friend made it home safe from 'mud hut land' A-stan, I know what you mean about the 'auto' VS revolver, my experience was the opposite, went from shooting 'auto's' to my .357 magnum, definitely a difference.

Vaq !

now this is good news and sounds great to hear your gonna try and head out here. Yeah MacDill AFB is Operations Command for SOCOM. Have to get both of you on this side of the bay and hit the range if we can for sure.

TG lives over this way also, though we've never hooked up yet. Have to see about getting him handy also.

Let me know when a little before hand if you can so I can make sure I don't schedule anything for a few days. Hell if yawl want to stay on that side of the Bay we can head over to Shoot Straight in Tampa. Though I'm not sure what the fee's are like there.

I'm so used to our range I never go anywhere else for pistol unless it's a match.

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!

Good to hear and I'm glad for him. So, he's back permanent now, right? Nice to hear about the 1911, too. Just FYI, I usually get the Remington/UMC 250 round mega pack for about a little over a hundred. There's cheaper out there to be had, but this is the cheapest not steel cased that I trust. Confident there's no squibs, hang-fires, etc.

If your shooting outside Vaq, this will work just fine. Just clean your pistol after shooting....

Actually pretty good ammo over all and the price can't be beat really...
