  1. General 1911 talk
    It started with @Krimbo wanting to shoot and then @DXT_Shooter jumped in and finally @steelbahamut wanted in and of course my buddy @William Lear so we had 5 of us. It was tons of fun
  2. General Firearm Discussion
    Started the day out with my buddy @William Lear by getting haircuts and then off to the range for some drills This was 2 seconds facing and 3 seconds hidden with one magazine change on the Nighthawk Counselor Next was Bill shooting his Smith and Wesson 681 and finally Bill with his...

    Most of the snow is melted and temperature soaring to 39. So nice to be able to outside to the range, although it was a bit sloppy/muddy. Able to run 3 Baers Gov. Custom Carry 45 and 9 along with the Comanche 45 through 300 rounds. Just nice to be able to shoot outside, I so dislike indoor...

    Had the chance to get to the range today… For the last year, I’ve shot the majority 9mm out of double stack guns with Dots. Well, ammo is getting a bit low and SPP are also getting a bit low. Seeing that I am a bit low for my comfort level with 9, I certainly have a ton of 45 laying around...

    Recently got this new Nighthawk Thunder Ranch 9mm and took it out today for the first time. Put about 150 reloads through it to test function and POI. No function issues at all. Shot the cheap FMJ reloads a couple of inches low...115 FMJ's with 4.0 of Bullseye. I could load heavier bullets...

    I've been waiting for today for over a week (damn job) Today was the Yost 38 Super Range day. Myself and @William Lear started off with our every other Friday haircut and then off to Scottsdale Gun Club. Bill was excited to shoot his recent-newly sighted Wilson Combat Ultra Light Carry Compact...

    Markets selling off today on the Delta variant so I snuck out to the range to shoot the made over bobtail and grab lunch. I was quite please at 25 ft. I had two failures to extract and may need a hair more tension in the extractor. The @EvolutionArmory Guys are my heros :love: Also shot...

    Today was break-in today and first shots with the ACW Prime Carry 38 Super. Keep in mind, last night I broke down the gun and it was reassembled it one drop from soaking wet. It started interestingly enough by not being able to get a round chambered. First magazine, release the slide and it...

    Well today was the first day shooting my newly "bubba'd" CBOB trigger job and I wanted to check the sights. The next step it's off to a local guy for a slide-top treatment and black oxide and I'll have my two/tone CBOB. The gun functioned fine, the trigger could be lighter but since this will...

    I'm embarrassed to say this is the first time shooting it and it did not disappoint, there's nothing like the accuracy of a tight, hand fit gun. I may start carrying it and for anyone that has had the benefit of looking down a Yost gold line sight, it's freakin awesome. I'm a Gold bead hater as...

    I finally made it to the range yesterday to shot two guns for the first time, a combination of work, back spams, conserving ammo and the range being so busy has cit down on my shooting by 75% of late. First I shot the "new-to-me" Benchmark Precision 38 super bobtail and boy was I impressed...

    Work never seems to end so I have to think ahead and carve time out for the range which means make an appointment so I have an excuse to leave and be somewhere. I pulled two 38 supers out of the safe and spent a wonderful 90 minutes at Scottsdale Gun Club throwing over 400 rounds down range...

    It was good to get out and shoot today as it has been 10 days since I had a range session, work is killing me (in a good way). I decided to pull the LB Stinger out of the safe and along with my nightstand gun the NH Counselor. Every time I shoot this Counselor I'm blown away, it's an amazing...

    I'm going to the range later to shoot two guns I have not shot in over a year :redface: very sad to even think about it as they are two of my favorites but I tend to shoot what I carry primarily and not what I covet. Here is my Dan Wesson Custom Shop CBOB and a Wilson Combat Professional...

    A little 4 PM therapy session, Dan Wesson Guardian, Wilson Combat Stealth and Wilson Combat Sentinel. 100 or so rounds through each gun, 4 magazines of self-defense loads through each gun, not a stumble, everything was 100% perfect. Now to sit an clean them and watch some of RNC convention...

    Today was a bit of that and a bit of this with my buddy @William Lear He found some 44 special ammo locally and the Anaconda was a breeze to shoot, very pleasant. on my last cylinder he loaded one magnum round in there and I thought the gun exploded :meh: Bill also brought his "range...

    Two Wilson's and a Hawk, there's no doubt lighter guns are harder to shoot accurately, one to many red bulls and I'm twitching like an addict, a 1911 addict that is. NH T4, WC Sentinel Compact and WC ULCC I ran 6-8 magazines bullseye shooting, double taps and Mozambique Drills, before...

    Went to the range today to shoot my pal's @William Lear .357 Colt Python for the 1st time, what a sweet sidearm We were shooting 38's in it so it was like shooting a .22 with all that heft behind it. Bill needs new glasses :mad: We also shot Bill's Colt AR for the 1st time and that was...

    Let the flaming begin :rolleyes: I had to at least try this as I have had in in a drawer for over 3 years I had to take out the thin bushing on the right side and add a taller bushing for the attachment Button her up and added some Chambers blue nitre grip screws for good luck I...

    I love it when a plan comes together, I was up and at my desk at 5 am this morning so I could make my 3:00 PM ranger reservation at Scottsdale Gun Club. I finally got to shoot my GI Guncrafter and boy it did not disappoint, with it's full size frame and 5" barrel I could shoot the stinger off...
