    How's things whatya shooting

    Well figured I would start a new thread-the oc one is giving me a headache. How's things for everybody going here in the palmetto state? What y'all shooting and how often do you get to go?
    I'm shooting:
    Springfield loaded 1911 in .45acp-my favorite
    Beretta px4 storm in .40cal with tlr-2laser/light combo
    Eaa witness .40cal- I know it's cheap but it shoots nice
    Springfield xdm subcompact 9mm- the wifes
    Ruger sp101 .357mag-just sits
    Rockola M1carbine .30cal
    I go to the range probably every week and should stop spending my retirement savings on ammo but hey why not? Anybody going to friends of NRA banquet at the end of the month?

    Just about all I've shot for the past year is 22lr.

    either through my Ruger MKIII target pistol or either of my supped up 10/22s.

    Every once and a while I'll put some rounds through my main carry pistol a Sig 230 (.380 cal) or my Ruger KP95 pistol 9mm and I have to exercise my carry rifle then too.. A customized Ruger Police Carbine in 9mm with folding stock.

    But over all it's 22lr... I don't seem to get that burning sensation in my back pocket nearly as quick when I'm shooting this.

    Alucard-I hear ya man I love my .45 too gonna get another beretta px4 in .45 soon
    Blume357 yeah I definately can see the advantage of shooting 22lr-I used a ruger mkIII for my cwp qualification wanted to use my 45 but the instructor said try it you'll like it and man was he right what a cool gun! He had them set up with some tricked out anodized aluminum barrels in varying lengths very light and easy to use from holster think I may buy one!

    Melloyello cool man sounds like a nice collection how's the wife like the sp101-don't think I could hit the broadside of a barn with mine that's why it sits guess I'm not much of a revolver guy but I don't shoot it that much either.

    when I qualified 5+ years ago, one of the guys in my class had just broken his shooting arm.... he used a Ruger MK II or III to qualify with using his 'weak' arm. I love my MK III... besides having the big learning curve of how to put the dern thing back together.... it has always performed well.

    Even though I live less than 10 minutes from the Greenville Gun Club... it seems because of either work or family I can't get out there but every two to three weeks...

    what I would really like to be able to schedule is going to another Appleseed event.... they have several scheduled up this way this Fall... either in Anderson or over in Toccoa.... but I can't seem to clear my schedule for any of them.

    Try to shoot the Glock 19 every week, maybe 100-200 rounds. So far more like 50! I'm almost walking distance to Trader World from my office. Several Walmarts in the area are well-stocked with $9.47/50 rounds of Federal FMJ.

    Also shoot the Ruger MkII a lot, with and without the silencer and red dot. As all have said, a fantastic weapon system. Occasionally shoot my "sniperized" version of the 10/22, 16" threaded TacSol barrel, soft stock, bipod, AAC Prodigy suppressor, Russian fixed 4x scope with pointed post reticle. Super accurate rifle.





    Maybe once per month I knock out 20 rounds of defense ammo from my little Ruger LCP.

    Cool.

    To post photos, you need to first get them on the net, then just use the "image" link (5th icon from right, above, looks like it has a mountain on it). What you do is get your image loaded onto PhotoBucket or even FaceBook.

    Once you can see your photo on whatever internet page you upload it to, right click on it and choose "properties" from the pop-up menu. Copy the image location shown in "Address (URL)". Select the image link above and paste the image address. Takes much longer to write this than to do.

    Cheers,
    I
