A couple new additions to the family...

Not necessarily a fan of Taurus, but I picked this up for a really good price and figured what the heck. Shoots really nice actually.



Put this together for the annual .22 match at the hunt club this year. Last year Boo was out gunned shooting my old Henry Golden Boy against all the 10/22s. NOT this year!





One of the guys at the club brought some suppressors, that little rifle LIKED the suppressor!

Boo having some fun with one of the "toys" the suppressor guy brought.

Got a 9mm Sig P226 legion. 200 rounds later and I'm hooked. Another slippery slope.

The Wrangler works fine and I can shoot it pretty well outdoors in the sunlight. Those small sights inside, not so much.

Picked up a new FN recently. Ran a couple hundred rounds through it and she seems to be great. Only thing I don't like it the muzzle brake. It has three prongs and it sounds like a tuning fork when you fire it.

Hoping to jump on a bronze one if they ever make it out to my local shop. Man I miss the range . Not sure if I want to drop the coin on this or a ruger super redhawk

Amazing how inexpensive .40 caliber trade in handguns have gotten. Yesterday I picked up a full size, like new M&P for $220 + tax. Crazy.

Glut in the market, or is it a less desirable caliber these days?

I think it's both. It was a caliber that never really caught on with the general public and apparently a lot of police departments are recycling them now.

I remember when the .40 came out and wondering why?

As you probably remember, a big ballistics study was done by the Justice Dept./FBI after that shootout in Miami that left four of their agents dead, and others wounded. (Do I have those numbers right?) Didn't matter that there were tactical and operational problems at fault too, they blamed the 9mm and .38/.357 guns and ammo.

End result, they decided that the 10mm was the new go to. Then re-decided that the round was too long, and full powered loads, too powerful. Hence, the .40 S&W became the new king.

The rest of the story has been laid out already, I'm feeling like a windbag at this point, sorry.

I like 10mm. It's my goto woods pistol.

Oh yeah, I have a Glock model 20 for trips to places like the Smoky Mountains. I ain't hunting bears, wild boar, and mountain lions, but if they hunt me it's game on.

Gracias, Bill and Brian.

Funny, my department (which I retired from in 2017) went from Glock 9mm to Glock 40s right after I left.

Were they afraid you wouldn't be able to handle the recoil of the .40 caliber, icehog? Very considerate of 'em to wait!

You walked into that one sir!
