    Ended up hitting the range today with Jo Da Plumber and a couple of other friends. We got out when they opened and were on the way home by 2pm.

    I'll let Jo fill in the details of what he brought along.

    I dragged out my LRB M25, Savage 12 FVSS in .223, and Fred Johnson built NM M1A. LRB shot very well, Savage shot OK, but not as good as it usually does and the NM shot just fine and dandy.

    My friend Craig brought along his new Jon Wolfe built Armscorp M14 and his AR. I shot his M14 and the sights were not adjusting down to 100. They bottomed out at 200, but that is fixable with a higher front sight.

    My other friend brought out his Armscorp M14, LaRue Stealth, and his M4. He is off to the Police Games this week and was deciding which rifle to bring along for the rifle stages. His M14 was whacking every target with no effort out to 400. Come-ups were spot on even though a new load (ammo) was used.

    Here are a couple of pics of our very own JDP. We went to The Angeles Range which has paper at 100 and 200, and steel from 200-600.

    Always good to get together with my friend Mr. Rock. Dude knows his sh1t, and has great guns. I shot both his Savage and the M1A. Love that M1A, I may have to get one of those babies.

    I took out a new Kel Tec 223 for break in. She ran great. I was just getting her sighted in when a range officer pointed out that the ammo I had was steel core. Not allowed in fire country so had to put the Kel and the AR back in the cases for the rest of the day. But I’m quite content to shoot up clay pigeons with my 1022 . A bear custom trigger of course. All in all a most excellent day.

    So Mr. Rock, did you guys finally finish off that tennis ball I left hanging at 100 yrds?

    And thanks again for that care package.:D:D

    Man, I wish we had a range like that around here. I'm still on the search and WILL find one eventually.

    The tennis ball did not survive the day, Jo. Turns out the .308 rds turn it to Swiss cheese without moving it around. It was torn to sh!t. Maybe we need to fill one with construction foam to enable some better resistance?

    Did not notice if you had any malfunctions in the KelTec? They are great little carbines.

    Too bad I gave Matt those two bags of leftover, miscellaneous 5.56 ammo. It was only about 300 rds but by the time your ammo was kidnapped he had shot it all up through his Stealth. It was all mismatched LC/WCC/PMC/Amer Eagle/USA and Guatemalan but would have been fine in your KelTec. It is always interesting to see how seemingly identical ammo can shoot so drastically different.

    Glad you liked the care package, too. Who doesn't like freshly baked cookies?? I'll have some more when we make our next run. Maybe some brownies, too. We can make a day of it, head to my secret spot in the dez, and you can bring along that Husqvarna. And I'll see if I still have some .38 Super mags for you. I know I have ammo left over.

    I'm planning on replacing the Meopta 4-12 on my .300Win Mag with the new IOR 2.5-10FFP, but probably won't have it done by the time we go. I'll still bring it, though, so we can see how the 7mm Mag compares to the .300WM at 1,000 yds.

    Absolutely. Any day spent with friends and guns qualifies as a good day.
