What a pleasure it was to do a near safe-dump and trek to that dive (in bar talk) of a range called Revere to shoot with gorknoids. Just like that dive of a bar that serves those greasy cheeseburgers that taste so good, Revere serves up some tasty shooting fun.
I first must do a Tiger mea culpa and say I shot an XD for the first time and........wait for it.........yes, I liked the gun. It fit well in my paws and shot like a dream. It has a grip safety and excellent balance from full mag to slide lock-back. Kudos to Gregg for this opportunity to shoot the Springer and a surprise to me, the
I can honestly say, should I venture back into the poly gun market, the XD would be my first look! (Who said, yea when hell freezes over?)
But in my defense I did bring my poly Elsie Arr for him to tryout. We shot up some .38 special wadcutters, hand rolled by BILLYBOB44 and a box of PP target loads. I think we have another LCR fan. What's not to like about a 13.4 oz Ruger deep carry piece?
Canebrake was removed from the Bore-Store and yes, this "Show Gun" proved to be a real shooter and showed-off my personal ergonomic touches to my custom mouse gun. Unfortunately the Timber Rattler grips are still new and didn't provide the purchase they will when worn-in.
Well guys, FENRIR lives! I now have a FTF member that has ran her and I'll let Gregg tell you what he thinks. I can say with certainty that the compensator on this 5.5" CCG barrel tames the recoil. It doesn't however, do anything for the noise.
We both had the pleasure shooting my near-new 1980 S&W model 29-2. This was the first time I had a chance to shoot this new addition to my arsenal and had forgot how nice a quality 44 magnum feels!
And last but not least, I think Gregg's biggest surprise and what most impressed him was my 1989 Browning High Power. This pistol is a pleasure to shoot and the one I have found to master the Mozambique drill! I know it's a 9mm but it has JMB genes all over it and shooting it is like a walk through history! Do yourself a favor and shoot a BHP the first chance you get.
