Cool Dred.
Sure want to hear a range report on it.

It showed up yesterday and I mounted it on the VR60 this morning. Well, the risers - .5" and .6" to 1"  - that I ordered immediately after mounting will land on the 11th.   It might be gas operated but I ain't pressing the 12g bang switch until I can achieve a sight picture simultaneous to actual, effective shoulder support.

Picked up these GEE Plates for my Glock 26. As you can see by the picture....I ordered the wrong ones. New plates are on the way.
 



Edit:


After posting this the mailman delivered the plates for the 26. I have to say, these feel extremely comfortable. I think they will work.

**don't knock my undercut. I still need to polish it out. hahaha**

I bought a OC holster for my Browning High Power.

Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."

I bought 20 lbs. of walnut media for my brass tumbler.  Needed to refresh big time.  Used some a couple of days ago, and cut my tumbling time in half.

"walnut media" reminds me of how our maintenance people used to clean Turbo Prop aircraft engines.....drive a 3/4t truck up and under the prop/lay an old mattress between truck and prop/start the engine (it would "turn" but the prop wouldn't)/aim hose water into the engine/throw handfuls of crushed Walnut Shells into the engine - walla, clean engine

That was pretty creative Tango.  (Couldn't you have thrown whole walnuts and picked up the meat on the other side?)  :thumbsup1:

Pretty hot ammo, other than 2 restrikes, the 20+ rounds I fired were good.

Why I tend to shoot ALOT of 22s.
2 bucks or some such a squeeze would take all the fun out of it for me.

Besides I dont need to shoot anything 3000 yds away.

Would love some $2 plinking ammo for friends.  :)
 Thanks for the compliment, Im working up in distance but currently only at 1760 yards. 
Boomer spit out to 12,500 yards w/ solids ammo but the trajectory goes to crap at 4500 yards (but still w/ 1,000 ft lbs of energy)

a replacement combination (rotary) mechanism for my gun safe (and have returned all my pistols to said safe)

and that gave me the opportunity to handle each and every one as I checked them for storage sweat/rust - mentally grading them from most favorite at the same time

not shooting as much as I used to I tend to forget about the "quality" of ones such as my Nighthawk, GI, Ed Brown, Lugers - handling each and every one brings it all back
