Dr.Marneaus, get finished with college, enlist in the military, and use your bonus enlistment check to buy a Nighthawk .45 ACP.

There, problem solved...............

You are not doing too badly by yourself Doc. You have a fine little collection of your own going, Mr poor college student.

When I was in school I had to scavenge loose change from neighboring apartment couches to afford cigarettes and beer, never mind .357 ammo...

Haha, well I've pretty much given up cigars and beer, and i have way less money than I should at this point in the school year...but I guess you gotta prioritize, right?

the end of the world ain't gonna wait for me to get a high-payin job.

and In case I didnt tell you over on the other side...nice 1911. It looks liek it would shoot like a deam...I might sell my lowly springfield GI and pick up a used kimber come summer.

I had to wait till i left NH to start buyin my guns. Must suck to have to go to an indoor range all winter.

Marn, another option would be to tune your own.

You know how files and stones work, right?

You know what jeweler's rouge is?

You've got the grapes to take said items to your pistol?

It's not a huge deal to lower and polish your feed ramp or lower and flare your ejection port. It's pretty simple to fit and install a new trigger, sear, hammer and beavertail.

Thanks. It is really a fantastic shooter. I had plans for a couple hundred rounds today but it is freezing rain and 31* so maybe tomorrow...

No indoor ranges around here. The closest local range is an old gravel pit turned "private range". Not worth the money to join as it is one of those places where your membership fees get you a key to the gate and every wahoo with a firearm is out there acting stupid. I have been there as a guest a few times and left, never to return after one occasion when a couple *******s drove their truck up to the line and started cracking budweisers and shooting off the hood.

I am putting a small (2 or 3 shooters max) range in on the back of my property this spring. I cut all the trees last weekend while it was still easy to get around on snowshoes. I'm hoping to build a small enclosure and I've got an old LP bob house heater so it should make winter shooting a bit more enjoyable.

With a little studying and some work, you could have your Springfield worked over pretty well.
