Friday at the Range:  I took my 5 year old to the range this Friday.  We went to the Bayou Rifles Addicks rimfire range.   

The old Savage Mk II, Primary Arms 4-16 FFP mil dot with the Dead Air Mask HD in the Hog Saddle was the weapon of choice. 

My 5 year old finally got it.    He figured out that the steel birdies and pigs fell if he put the cross hairs on them.  And then the first dot under the crosshairs for the 75 M and 100M steel rams.

Definitely made me proud. I am always amazed when that fire gets lit and they start asking if I brought enough ammo!

It's a fight to keep their eye pro on.   Funny thing is the fascination with the ear pro.

My latest.  The picture doesn't do it justice, Savage 1915...

That is a nice find. Is that a .22?

No, it is a .32ACP.  It has an interesting history.  The design was one of the 2 finalists in the Army's competition for a semi-auto pistol that was ultimately won by Colt, the 1911.  Google Savage 1907 and take a look.

This particular model is the 1915.  Only 6500 were made.  This one looks like it has never been fired.  Since it was actually made in 1915, that makes it 102 years old.  I'm actually hesitant to fire it now.  Not for any mechanical or safety issues but because it is so pristine.

I collect older S&W revolvers focusing on pre 1980 pinned barrel models. I really focus on condition when I buy and don't mind spending a little extra on one that is in excellent condition. When I get one in extraordinarily good condition. I usually run 12 rounds through to make sure it works and locks up tight then put it in the safe. I know some people don't agree with that but that's just what I do besides I've got plenty of other things to shoot.
Me, I'd be just too tempted to run a magazine of the best .32 ACP ball ammo I could find. But that's easy for me to say as I don't own it and don't know what you have in it $ wise. But still.....tempting.

Believe me, I am tempted.  I have $600 in this and thought that was a fair price.  I got it off Gun Broker so I didn't actually get to see it until I took delivery.  I was blown away at the condition when I saw it.  Pleased beyond belief.  After I finally learned how to disassemble it (there is a trick on the 1915 model) I inspected it and immediately came to the conclusion this gun, if it has been fired, has been fired very little.

My dilemma is this - this gun is probably worth far more to a collector than it is to me.  All my guns are shooters.  I can appreciate a safe queen as much as anyone else, but they are not for me.  I bought this gun thinking I was getting a nice shooter.  I think I have much more.

What I really need is a Savage pistol expert to look it over and offer a knowledgeable opinion.  They seem to be a little hard to find, experts that is.

The other side:

The Mutha Lode!! Fourth rifle from the bottom. Is that a Gewehr 43? Haven't seen one outside of a museum. Man what I wouldn't give to be able to shoot that. Two paratrooper .30 carbines. Whooweee!

Seriously you have a lot of money there but you probably know that. I would definitely take out a insurance policy on those rifles. First dibs on any you would like to get rid of  :icon_wink:

Yes it's a G-43 in 8mm. I would love for you to shoot it with me if you would like some time this summer, if it's on your bucket list. Aren't you near Houston or college station? What's missing in the picture is a pair or 1903s, a pair of M1917s, and another Lee enfield no4. Mk1.

Great, you might need more than a couple of boxes...haha, we can meet up some time in July or August. July during a weekday would be the best for me. PM me what days would be the best for you and what range we are to meet at. I'll bring my lee enfield too, I remember you saying you had one too before.

Last Friday of June.  Starting the 4th of July weekend with a cigar and Thermal!

At a property bordering the Sam Houston National Forest.


Sighting in the Pulsar Core RXQ30V loaned by Third Coast Thermal on the POF P-415.  Thats a GemTech Trek Ti and a Rifles Only HAD suppressor cover

 
Sighting in the IR Hunter Mk II (from Third Coast Thermal) on the POF P-308 and Dead Air Sandman L wrapped with a Rifles Only HAD suppressor cover



Shooting the Savage Mk II with the Dead Air Mask HD from the prone.   Wore the new urban hipster Camo pattern









Enjoying a good cigar with the new urban hipster pattern camo.  The IR Hunter Mk II (from Third Coast Thermal) on the POF P-308 and Dead Air Sandman L wrapped with a Rifles Only HAD suppressor cover will be deadly on the Pigs.

I like the fact that a hot suppressor will not burn me with that rifles only suppressor cover on it













After i Sighted the Pulsar Core RXQ30V loaned by Third Coast Thermal in on the POF P-415. Hi did a quick initial test of the mounts Return To Zero characteristics. I removed it and remounted it on the rifle.  I was able to hit the plate at 100 yd dead center after it was remanded. This is a holy unscientific test.

 Thats a GemTech Trek Ti and a Rifles Only HAD suppressor cover.



A 1980s quartz Omega Seamaster on the Pulsar Core RXQ30V.
