Posted in thread: Some Model 60 Practice on 09-28-2014 at 01:58 AM
I took a very brief trip to one of the ranges I frequently visit; a pile of logs at the end of
a field on my mother-in-law's farm. I set up a cardboard box at 25 feet for some close quarters

If I had my druthers I would carry one of the new, small sized 9mm's on the market. However, I
am a person of limited means and can't afford one of the mini-9mm's, so my .380 soldiers on. If

Of course, back in the late eighties and early 90's I shot Chinese surplus, mostly corrosive.
Now, I shoot Ulyanosk, Brown Bear, Silver Bear, Monarch and Wolf. Lately, I have shot a lot of
Posted in thread: Magazines, who cleans them? on 08-15-2014 at 07:08 AM
I usually clean the follower and the lips of the magazine every time I shoot. I use a little
solvent or even just a little oil.
Posted in thread: How many Glocks do you have? on 08-02-2014 at 03:28 PM
Zero, but not for the usual reasons one hears. I have 11 handguns, but none of them is a Glock.

SKS is always a good choice. An unmodified Saiga in X39 or .223 might also merit your

months you might be able...

No available camera here, but I carry a Bersa Thunder .380 in an "Uncle Mikes #3" Inside the
pocket holster. When I need to be ultra discreet I carry a Kel-Tec P-32 in the same rig.
Posted in thread: Ammo Hoarding Driving Me Crazy! on 02-10-2013 at 04:09 AM
I have a fair amount of ammo on hand. I would have liked to have a bit more than the 1700
rounds of .22LR I have now. All I have been able to find in recent weeks at the Wal-Mart has
been shotgun shel...
