I am in love with my Mark II. It's an awesome gun. I jokingly say now I have a gun for fun (Mark II) and one for 'business' (the GP 100).

I shortened the stock on my Eddystone. Nothing to it.

When you're ready for a long gun, let us know and we'll help you out.
I wanted to cut down the stock on Jon's pink gun but he wouldn't let me. I so badly wanted to shoot that gun accurately, but I just couldn't. When I shot Bear's AR, he kept saying "Get your eye closer to the scope" my reply was "I CAN'T". ROFL

Jon said his wife has a rifle with an adjustable stock. She also has a Desert Eagle 50 cal. I'd like to shoot. I hope she comes with us next time.

As for how well I did, I will let Jon answer that. I don't really know. I just know I had a rip roaring great time.

That's GREAT! Sounds like yall had a fantastic time. The device you're talking about is a chronograph. By the time you make it back down here you're going to outshoot me.

Looks like you guys had some fun. As soon as we get a break in this heat I'm planning a range trip as well. I'm going to have to recruit a few local form members to go with me.
A great report!

Looks like hands on fun and education was graciously shared. Kudos to both you and JonM. Great report.

I am learning every time I go shooting but the one thing I was surprised about was a rifle sounds different when it shoots than a pistol does. I didn't know that. I asked Jon why "that gun" sounds different than our guns and his simple reply was "Because it's a rifle".
ruger 10/22 with a pink laminate stock, kidd trigger (didnt know about bear's trigger jobs when i purchased it), leupold rimfire vx2 3-9x33 efr with fine duplex xhairs and target turrets from the leupold custom shop anadozid pink by leupold, barrel is a pink anodized from tactical solutions, reciever is duracoated pink. scope base and rings are leupold.

Then I got to shoot his beautiful Colt Python. The finish on that gun was like nothing I had ever seen before and it was very flashy, indeed. I prefer stainless steel guns but this Python's finish is a kind of bluing I wouldn't mind having. Jon will have to fill in this detail.
if the current crop of ruger gp100s are typical of the high quality of Winds' pistol they are a very fine product indeed. i was expecting something more along the lines of my brother's gp100 he bought waaaaay back. the version winds has is impressive indeed.

the bluing is called colt royal blue. colt no longer offers this level of finish on any of their production or custom shop guns.

she did fantastic. the pinking steel is 25 yards out and arent very big at all at that distance. she was hitting about 70% which for the first serious shoot at that distance on such small targets is very good indeed!!

a very good time was had indeed!!

That'll be the day! I doubt that very much, Bear.

Dang, that think is a beauty.

That picture does not do justice to the beauty of that gun and it's finish. AND I GOT TO SHOOT IT!!

Just imagine what I can do when I get a scope on that thing! See you in September, Bear. I have some work for you to do.


a very good time was had indeed!!

That's it. I had no idea you could get all these contraptions to help you shoot better and decide what loads to use when loading your own ammo.
