You walked into that one sir!
Phrasing?

Yeah, I remember it was primarily the FBI that pushed the .40. Now that they've abandoned it and gone back to the 9mm, other agencies are apparently following their lead so you can pick up used trade-ins on the cheap right now.

Little follow up: Wanted to get a few more magazines for the M&P. Didn't need brand new ones, they'll be for the range only.

Sometimes I forget that AIM Surplus is about 25 miles away. Sure enough they listed trade in 15 rounders for $14. Drove up and got a few. Used, but plenty of life left in 'em.

A little Aroma Therapy this weekend with Boo. We've both been pretty busy with life lately and haven't see much of each other, so we decided on a little range time together!

Rock'n the .45



Bustin' some clays



Elmer Fudd???




Funny part is, I'm shooting the ported 20 ga. that I got for her a couple years ago, because she wanted the 12 ga. pump, and she's rockin' that .45 like there's no tomorrow while I'm happy with my 9mm. Good thing I'm secure in my masculinity!

I recently added a red dot to a 686+ and took it out last week to sight it in. First time I've fired off a rest in many years. Beautiful day out in the desert and once I dialed the sight in it shot a ragged hole. I've used optical scopes on handguns in the past but this was my first experience with a red dot. I think it'll help my aging eyes.

This shooting spot is a half hour from my driveway. It's actually up on a hill overlooking a valley and you need a Jeep or other high clearance vehicle to get to it. There are a number of easily accessible shooting spots down below on the valley floor as well (all of which were occupied the day we were there) but I prefer the safety/privacy this spot affords.
