My Springfield 1911. This is 100 rounds of .45 ACP. With just a few exceptions (I was shooting left handed for a couple of 'em), this was dead on. I love this pistol!
Curious as to what distance and what ammo. My 1911 .45 seems to put a lot bigger holes but may be what it is mounted to or distance which is why I am curious. I can't shoot left handed very good yet.
The holes my look smaller due to the blurriness of the pic. I must be getting old, I really "geezered" this one up. (lol, little playful jab at you, Greg)
The funny thing is I'm left handed. And I always used to shoot left handed. Then I found out I'm right eye dominant. So I trained myself to shoot right handed. Now I have problems shooting left handed. It feels more comfortable to me. But I find I aim with the right eye even when I line up with the left.
The ammo was Remington UMC mega pack cheap ass range ammo.
putting the iron to work! :<)
I've tried the cheap-ass steel case Russian ammo in my .380, yep, finally found ammo it refuses to eat ;<( Had to chamber them one at a time. I'd bet if I polished the lips on the magazines it would work,
Next trick, Dremel, jeweler's rouge and try the cheap stuff again.
lol! Dremel and jeweler's rouge. Good stuff. OR, don't buy that shit! I'm sure that stuff would booger up mine as well. That's why I avoid it. It's not cheap enough to make it worth it.
a name brand like Winchester. I just like fiddlin' to see if I can make it work. I'm sure the steel cases are being "bitten into" by sharp edges on the mag lips.
I've not tried Telammo in any of my other guns. The powder seemed to burn really clean so no worry about it crudding up my S&W revolvers. The .45 is almost impervious to that prob.
At one time my .357 came to a screeching halt jam due to powder fouling caused by hand loads using Hercules powder. Not gonna do that again LOL!
What's new down your way?
Near time to fix dinner, thinkin' about red beans and rice.
Yeah, I did see problems in my Dad's CZ75 with some CCI Blazer. They are aluminum cases, but I think the issue was that the case was rough textured and it seemed to cause issues with the feeding.
Same stuff, different day. Coming back from vacation, so I've been easing myself back into work. But I have to post from work right now. My home router crapped out and no internet for me. I should have a new router Tuesday though.
Red Beans & Rice with some andouille sausage sounds wonderful. If not, cheat and throw some salt pork or even bacon in there. lol
Enjoy. Talk to you later.
Be back later !!
ha ha.. great were both on and your "easing myself back into work".. I don't even know what the thread is but since it's sorta "chingr'd" up already (SW get "cingr'd") i'm not to worried.. Daisy wants sausage with his red beans.. Having "Nathans" and sauerkraut tonight.. go wife go..
Daisy how long before you get that slide back.. and is that related to the magazine lips or do you have a second issue going on.. prol'y that dry thing you do.. hope that slide doesn't come back with a note "try oil" ..
Glad we have Saint on board, least we know some of the TX boys made it thru last night.. That OK deal is sad, and guess besides 160 Tornadoes.. WOW.. They had six lives lost, and an equal number in the hospital in Amarillo.. Don't know whats going on today, been working to get the house ready to show..
or, MOST LIKELY, just pass it around the guys in the office to decide what the deal is. They don't communicate worth beans.
No, the magazines are a different, unrelated issue. When I tried to feed it steel case ammo it refused to feed, period.
I don't know why, I let the gun soak in a vat of Pennzoil 10-30 overnight before I shot it LOL !!
Mrs Daisy just came through with a very serious look on her lovely face, Be afraid Lew, very afraid :<))
I don't have dinner started yet and it's 6:30
Bless our Texan boys, it's been scary down there!
A-OK. No storms to speak of on the homefront. Got some welcome rain, that's about it. Back in NM for the week, almost pleasant weather here. (kinda overcast and gusty). Arrogant asshole present and accounted for.
humid just around the corner though.
There must be several of us arrogant assholes here, ya think? :<)
Yep, hot and dry for me though. Heading south to Artesia NM soon for a long project. Desert conditions! Yippee!!!
like a good chance if you're going to be there awhile. Fishing too?
About 40 years ago. I reckon it might be time for another trip.
Just so ya know.. your "arrogant asshole" thing had me laughing so hard G just asked me what was wrong..
ha ha "nothing honey"..
Good shooting. The springy is a joy for sure. We gotta get together sometime and work the 1911's out.
Sounds good. We need to do it some time. Maybe some time I'll make a trip your way and we can use your home range. Or next time I head to the lease we could meet up some where near to both of us.
You getting any rain out of this storm? How about you Saint seeing how you are in Texas.
Hadn't yet. So far it just got cloudy and humid. Ground is still soggy from before, but I'll take whatever rains we can get since this last summer showed what a bitch Mother nature can be. :)
Amarillo is getting some rain but to the north Dumas got 3-4 foot of hail. I posted a video of it earlier. Pictures that have shown look like snow even a full size truck buried to almost the hood in hail.
Yeah, I saw the vid. Damn!
Looks like the heavy stuff is just north of Lubbock.
that is 20 miles south of Dumas. http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/hail-storm
What creek or river is that gonna flood when it all melts?
That's crazy! How you holding up? Every thing good there? I know you said you're just getting rain, but is it toad stranglers and thunder storms?
Going into Lake Meredith which it desperately needs.
Yep, silver lining in that cloud. Looks like that should raise the level considerably.
Still gonna need some moree though. Stay safe up there.
Everything is good here. Its a bit of everything. Few funnel clouds in that area too but nothing touched down that I know of.
Keep safe. Looks like we have the Texas contingency on tonight, huh?
downtown Lubbock now. Nice to listen to.
Or t-storms too? I always like watching thunderstorms. From a distance, of course.
Oh yeah, for sure. Been hearing and seeing it for a while now. It was just staying North till now.
Hope you guys stay safe tonight.. the front came thru here this morning so hitting you guys now..
Talking about hitting .. hey pard you notice how both Saint and Trev have a nack for blowing the center out of that target.. wow.. Saint.. take all the jabs ya want my friend.. good to see ya ..
Hope you all stay on the ground tonight.. keep safe for real.
I just keep missing you. Well, maybe tomorrow I'll catch you.
Will make it happen Sat brother.. hope you TX boys don't get the front thats comming thru right now.. major wind and pressure drop.. means snow here.. just hope no twisters by the time it gets over to you guys...
In the forecast. Supposed to be ugly north of here. Anyone in oklahoma or Kansas better dig in.
Glad their all better.. on site, safe sound and something else, but i've forgoten already. see ya all tomorrow.. Lou, glad your back.. John glad your better..
Pard, you and the TX boys watch your 6's telling you the front that came thru here today droped the temp to 28 degrees, and we have SNOW...thats a big change that means nasty by the time it gets to you guys...
