Managed to pull away today for a couple of hours with Jo Da Plumbr. We went to the Firing Line Indoor range, which was flipping packed when we got there. Drove to the range in pouring rain and thunder. Too weird for SoCal in October.
I brought along my Wilson Combat Tactical Elite, STI LS9, fully enhanced and grip reduced G26, bone stock G23/19, a couple of my High Standard .22's, Buckmark, 1924 Colt Police Positive Match .22, and my 10/22. Did not get any pics at the range, so snapped this one when I got home.
I've had the LS9 for years, but it has always had problems extracting. It has been un-reliable in the past but last night I replaced the extractor spring and did some work on the extractor. Today it was GTG which is nice because it is a great shooter. Now it will get used once in a while.
The Wilson shot very well, the High Standards are crazy accurate, and surprisingly so was my Buckmark. Just fed the .22's some cheap old Winchester Dyna Point stuff from the bunker and it shot well in all of them. Surprisingly accurate for cheap, old ammo.
Sighted in the cheap red dot on the 10/22 at 50' using Velocitors. I'm not big 10/22 fan, but this one is growing on me. It will warrant a better red dot now, I guess, so it will get one of the IOR red dots. Probably the small one shown here>. RDS MICRO EDGE RED DOT SIGHT
I put some rounds through an M&P .45 today and loved it. Trigger is just this side of "major suckage", but I think it could clean up a lot. I will buy one soon. Word is that the Apex triggers are the shizzle for the M&P's. I liked the grip size and the way it points.
We stayed for a couple of hours, and had a great time. It was very loud though due to how crowded it was.
Then we went to The Outback Steakhouse for lunch and continued with the chatter. My wife and daughter showed up, after getting a haircut for the kid, on their way to the Thai Store. My daughter chose to ride home with me.
Thanks for lunch, Jo!!
All in all a great day, with a great guy. Always good to hit the range with Jo.
