Another FTF meet and shoot.

I had the absolute pleasure to meet and shoot with utf59, yea I know he's a glock man but I didn't hold it against him.

Here's a canebrake "mea culpa", I shot his .45 ACP glock and.......wait for it.......the "man chambered" glock was a good shooter. Wow that was hard to get out! (I won't mention the trigger take-up and the standard glock black brick feel in my strong side hand.)

I will let utf59 post what he wants to revel but as far as my arsenal, here's what I brought:

Ruger LCP .380 ACP (no photos)
Ruger LCR .38 spl (no photos)
GSG 1911-22 .22lr
Browning High Power 9mm
Canebrake Colt-Defender 3" .45 ACP
Fenrir Colt-XSE Government 5.5" w/CCG's 460 Rowland kit
S&W 29-2 .44 Rem Mag

IT WAS HOT IN POMPANO BEACH THAT NIGHT!!!!! We made it hotter! No target photos to lie about, we just had soooo much fun I forgot to take enough pics.

This is a series of photos showing the recoil a shooters experiences when shooting a .44 Rem Mag with heavy loads. (This is NOT a sequence of one single shot so quit counting the holes in the targets and posting magic bullet comments. I put this collage together from the pics I took that night.)

Nice weaponry. Looks like you fellas had fun but we must stop talking about hot summers as mine has been mostly in the low 60's.

Wow! That is one cool get together there Cane. The most excellent host, as always.

Really great get together and excellent pics. :p

Flash photography... very cool.

I see we are withholding identities to protect the not so innocent.

Great pics & report Cane.

Excellent gentlemen! These small get togethers will help pave the way for the FTF Meet & Greet in Texas. :)

That Fenrir is a friggin' hoot! Always the gracious host, Cane is rapidly becoming "Mr. Meet".

Sounds like a good time! I need to meet up with some of the locals in my area....perhaps I should organize that.

utf59 08-04-2010 03:59 AM

It was a great time. My thanks to Cane for showing me to a fun range.

I brought:
Glock 30
Glock 27
S&W 586
Walther PPK/S
I figured Cane was just being polite taking a turn with the Glocks. He did like the trigger on my old Smith, though. Of course, I've spent a few thousand rounds breaking it in.

Getting a chance to shoot a few things I had never tried before was fantastic. And there's nothing like having someone hand you a .44 magnum with someone's handload in it that's named "Atom Bomb" that he just got.
utf59: "Have you shot one of these loads before?"
Canebrake: "Nope."
utf59: "So I'm your guinea pig?"
Canebrake: "Yep."
utf59: "Okay."
;)

Actually, I thought it was very hospitable of him to let me try it first. The result was that picture with the muzzle flash that looks strangely like a mushroom cloud. There is no quicker way to bring a whole range to a halt. I smiled for two days straight. :D

Cane was a great host. I hope he can make it up to NE FL so we can do it again.
