I went shooting again early yesterday. I brought two guns along but only shot one, which was my Ruger Charger 22 pistol. The other gun was my S&W model 627, but by the time I got around to it the range was getting much busier and decided to leave. The Ruger functioned perfectly and absolutely loves the Federal Match ammunition I feed it; you have to be trying to miss. I had a good time, even with the crowd, and the Ruger makes any day at the range a great one.
I went shooting last Thursday, the first time this year. I only took two of my Ruger 22 pistols. I wasn’t in the mood to shoot anything larger. I went early on a weekday so there were very few people around and the weather was perfect too, just a relaxing couple of hours – trying to make one big hole out of a bunch of little ones. That’s a morning well spent.
If you are a long time reader of my blog you’ve probably noticed the lack of guns and shooting posts in the last year or so. The fact is that there hasn’t been much to post about. I haven’t even bought a gun in over 18 months. There’s very little that I want and certainly nothing I need. I’m full up.
My only major purchase in that time has been a scope. I bought a Trijicon Accupoint for one of my rifles. Someday I hope to mount the scope and sight it in. I also got an AR-15 receiver as a Christmas gift that I’m planning to make into a pistol, at some point. If I ever finish either project I will post a review for you.
As for shooting I have been a few times this year. I usually take the same gun, my carry gun, so I’d only be rerunning previous posts if I bothered to post about it.
For the aforementioned reasons gun postings will be light for the foreseeable future.
I went shooting last Friday, the first time for 2018. I took my S&W 627 .357 Magnum and put a box through it. It had been a while. I also brought along my Ruger Challenger .22 pistol and that’s what I spent most of my time with. There’s something satisfying about trying to make one big hole out of a bunch of little ones. That’s a morning well spent.
