Nice.

My cousin used to have a Chinese AK in .223, that thing was pretty fun. We'd go out and blast away at this old shed with it and his 41 magnum. Now he just owns an old buckmark and a ruger p-series 9mm.

First gun I ever learned to shoot on was a 1979 Remington wingmaster pump. Thing was mint, only had like 20 shells put through it at the time. Pure craftsmanship from front to back.

I don't shoot as much recreationally as I used to. But I usually turn to the 10/22 carbine for that. Ruger nailed it with those bx25's.

Now, if they'd just come out with a .40 version of their pc carbine, that might change. Because I love me some .40 s&w

Now that I won't be making pennies, I'll shoot more. I'll do regular training regimen and tactical shooting. I also recreationally shoot. My buddy who is still a deputy said if I cover range fees we can shoot his M-1 Garand.

Watch your thumbs with that one. It pinches.

Are there any ammo manufacturers you prefer?

I'm a winchester man myself when it comes to 30-30, but I use various brands for everything else. Federal is always cheap but really seems to shoot dirty. Winchester pistol ammo always looks like it's been through a woodchipper. I've ran some fiocchi in 357 and that was clean as glass. Hornady really seems to have it going on though.

Depends. For service rounds in my pistol? Hornady critical duty rounds. Otherwise, I go for Federal.

I'm really impressed with Hornady. I like Speer Gold Dots as well. Federal is hard to find in my area, but I like the price point. The last box I picked up had gone sour though. Some of the brass was going green.

Funny you mention that. A horror story? I heard while at I was at the academy that a nearby Sheriff's Office had a deputy who was at qualification have a bad round go through his pistol and it pretty much blew up in his hands. Luckily, he only had minor injuries. Supposedly. The make of the rounds? Old federals. Supposedly.

Yeah, I've heard the horror stories about all the "affordable" ammo being the junk they scooped off the ground with shovels and boxed up for sale as regular federal or WWB.

Federal always shoots dirty in my guns, but danged if it's not affordable. The last box of .40 I got though was immaculate. Nothing growing on those ones, yet. :laugh:

Sig sauer .40's looked and shot amazing. I had them back when I had my old agency's Sig Sauer P320 Full .40. I have my own smaller Sig Sauer P320c .9mm I actually just bought a magnet mount for my personal car for it when I am learning the new streets on my off days. Otherwise it will be my backup gun. Drawing from the holster in a seated position is ass. Especially when reaction is slower than action in a gun fight.

I hear ya. We have legal car carry here now so mine just sits in its holster beside me or in the floor. It's just easier to reach and manipulate that way. I remember years ago at one of my old jobs (before car carry was legal), we had a rash of incidents involving irate and threatening customers showing up after hours and sometimes harassing the employees to they extent they felt unsafe. Some were actually stalking.

There for awhile, when we'd be working late into the night, I and another employee would both go get in our cars and use them to block the entrance doors while the others were closing up shop inside. We'd see everybody to their cars and we'd stay until they all left safely. All we had were our box cutters. I was glad when they passed the law.

I've been hearing some good words about that Sig brand ammo lately. Mostly on YouTube. I'll have to check that out.

And just on a side note, in case you don't hear it during your day (because I know alot of you guys don't).

Thank you for being a police officer. Stay safe out there brother.

Thank you, Hugs. It means a lot to us. There are a few bad apples, but the majority of us do it for good intentions. I know that's why I got started.

But yes! Be sure to check that sig ammo out. But beware! Expensive. Very expensive.

This was fun.  ;D

Bob Ross would only use titanium white  :laugh:

Nice look at the 300.

I love gel tests. Brassfetcher still hasn't done one for 45-70 for some reason.

These are the current loads I'm using. Good temporal cavities. Turns large fruit into instant raindrops.





Really want to pick up some of this though, but I've been hearing their QC has been hit or miss lately.

I have a SIG P226 .40, but I've decided lately that I prefer the simplicity of revolvers.  I'm looking at the Ruger GP100 1705 in particular.

https://ruger.com/products/gp100/specSheets/1705.html

That's the same one I have.

Best revolver I've ever owned.

Best gun I've ever owned actually. Worth every penny.

Easily backs up its reputation.

I've always shot automatics. So revolvers feel...weird. To me at least.
