Default Finall got to the range

Man I have had my p95 for bout 2 months and finally got it to the range. I have to say it shoots very well and the accuracy was better than I thought. I realy thought I was going to have to adjust the rear sight but it is good.
We went to range 14 in jersey so it was chilly and windy causing my eyes to water a lot but I feel I shot well at 20 yards.


Took my oldest with me and I have been working with gun safety on some gas powered airsoft guns I have and for 11 years old he did good and made his old man (me old?) proud.



You can see the casing ejecting here



Look at that smile. I now have a range buddy.


After 200 + rounds of different ammo my gun seems to have a problem with blazer aluminum shells. 2 failed to eject. Remington and S&B cycled fine so only brass for me from now on.

I would like to leave with WOW DOES IT GET DIRTY, but I have been looking foward to finally cleaning my finally used pistol


See y'all

Man how I wish I could just do that. Thought about leaving the state but would miss all the family that lives so close and get to see all the time. It's a big toss up.

Nice, fun day for dad and son. I remember several of those.

When my wife and I got married, we bought a house out in the sticks, well outside the urban sprawl. We couldn't exactly go out the back door and shoot, but we didn't have to go more than a 1/2 mile to reach open ground where we could. Now today, 28 years later, the city has overtaken us. What was once a nice little quaint country town of 1,000 people, with pickup trucks driving around with guns in the back window has been replaced by a "modern" suburb of 10,000 people driving BMWs. When we bought our house, the police force was a 65 year old sheriff, with two deputies. Mayberry RFD style. They knew every citizen in town and didn't bother people unless you really got out of line. The mayor lived on a farm and the "official" city vehicle was a pickup truck with a fender missing. Now we have a modern, hi-tech police force, with a command vehicle and an armored car. If you go 1/2 mile over the speed limit, or roll 6 inches at a stop sign, it's ticket time. Oh, and you can't even shoot an airsoft gun in city limits. The joys of city living.

Ident it amazing how the world changes around you. Where I live there use to be a mailbox and a pay phone on every other corner. My son has no idea what a corner mail box is and told me he saw a pay phone once :-/
