Optics, Lights, Lasers, Holsters & Accessories / Range bags, Buckets, other
« on: February 26, 2011, 08:03:27 PM »
I am a tightwad.  Grew up w/o & we used a bucket for tools before a tool bucket was cool.

As a young man I threw what I needed for the range in a bucket too.
I have never bought a range bag for me.  Have for Mom, Son, Grandson, DIL.
My Range Bucket til I had to have something bigger for group training.

About 3yrs ago now I was really needing something bigger.
Wife talked me into going to a huge garage sale.  When I say this Husky Tool Tote for $8.00 I say a Range Tote.

Now I have 2

Anyone else use something besides real Range Bags.  I have seen some really creative & good ideas.
How bout it guys & ladies.

« on: February 26, 2011, 07:45:22 PM »
All of mine are named.  Every one of mine have names.
Here they are as many as I have a picture of.

Nork - This is a really good shooting gun.  China on the outside.  All American on the inside.


others w/ no picture.
K.  as in Kimber ly Kay - Only lady in group.  Son is carrying her right now while his is in the hospital.

Pig - SA XD45.  I love a beautiful 1911.  Autharitis has made me convert.  Ugly as a pig.  Tough as a PinyWoods Rooter.  

HopSing - SKS

Ammunition / Cuttin patches
« on: February 20, 2011, 10:23:13 PM »
I did underwear once.  They left way too much lent.
Ts work great for the patches, oil rags for guns.  For shop rags I get the the towels that are ravelled when the wife junks them.  One bath towel makes 4 shop rags.

Ammunition / Cuttin patches

I just finished cutting 9mm & .45acp patches.  Old T-shirts never get thrown away around here.
I am 61 & have never bought a package of patches other than in a cleaning kit.
Started when I was a kid because there was no $s & just never ran out of ragged t-shirts.

Anyone else do the same.???

68gr???  that'll make a pound disappear rather quickly.
Ever tried anything heavier?  150gr seems really light for a magnum .30 cal.  What's the twist rate on your bbl?

Although, I bet that 150 grainer shoots like a freaking laser beam out to 300 yards or more...

I dont know the twist rate.  I am not a great statistition & yes I dont do much holding over as far as I am comfortable shooting.  350 is about my max hunting range now.  
I have loaded some 180s but for Texas deer dont really need anything that heavy. When I hit this load & it worked I just stick to it.
Yea, I get 100 out of a # of powder.

How old are you guys.  Or better, how young are you?
I only converted to a semi in 2001.  Prior to that I could litteraly count the rds I ever fired out of a semi.

Outdoors / caliber for deer hunting in texas

Like some others it depends on wher I am hunting.
All round is .308.
Looong shots I go as above w/ Big Sam, 300wsm.
Medium range ooooooo I sometimes ask my Mom if I can borrow her 25-06.  I love that round.

Since my son talked me into the Wilderness 5 stitch I sure like it for ED wear.

Handguns and Revolvers / S&W Sigma 40ve Trigger Troubles
« on: February 11, 2011, 04:21:40 PM »
I only know one that is acceptable in my hands as an instructor.  A jeweler did his own trigger job.  I am sorry but those guns were made to sell not shoot.

I know one that owns one & he likes it.  When that is what is needed it is about all that works.
Takes a littke time to thet to your gun but not near as long as when it is in the truck, or worse, in the sock drawer.

Says it is cool enough in the summer as ad.

51% rule is for "On Premisis Consumption" so the liquor store is OK to carry.
