  1. Sorry to hear about the pain as I can relate and the meds can make me incoherent.

  3. My New 1911 10mm

    RIA, M1911 A2, Pro Match Tac Ultra, 10MM Model: 52,000 HC Mag: 16 + 1 Round- Fit and Finish is excellent Average Trigger pull: 4.5lbs 6" stainless bull barrel and guide rod AMBI SAFETY From Armscor's site: The PRO Match Ultra HC 6" is a target grade pistol ready for competition right out of the box. Built by the master gunsmiths in the Rock Island Armory Medallion, it's chambered in 10mm with a 16-round capacity and adjustable LPA rear sight and high visibility fiber optic front sight. It also includes a skeletonized hammer and factory 4- to 6-pound trigger with adjustable over travel stop. Comes in a fully parkerized finish with G10 grips. Add a full length picatinny tactical rail and the Pro Match Ultra HC is ready for any anything. She can definitely out shoot me. But I'm happy considering the following: 1. Hornady 180grain XTP bullets average velocity 1360FPS 2. Focused on not shooting my chrony 3. Not use to a brass catcher mounted on a picatinny rail, but it caught all but one piece of brass. 4. I. kept engaging the enlarged safety with my thumb, I started resting my thumb on top of the safety while trying to avoid the slide. On my next range trip, I'm going to take some sand bags and bench rest her to see what my (and the pistol) limitations are from 25 yards and beyond for hunting. I'm taking my Primos shooting sticks too. All excuses aside, here are the first ten shots: As time went on she got a little heavy (3.6lbs loaded, not counting brass catcher) and I got sloppy with trying double taps: My hunting load data: Light swipes and minor flatting of primers. Bullet: Hornady 180 gr XTP HP Case: Remington .985" Primer: WLP Powder: AA# 9 - 14.5 grains O.A.L: 1.260" Velocities: Average 1360fps

  5. Son-in-law and I went calling last night. Stand after stand of nothing. We decided to go to our fox honey hole and bingo! We actually called in two but it was thick, the other got down wind, busted us and just barked at us! Taken with a helmet mounted PVS-14, CRM 201-IR laser, Weatherby SA-459 TR in 12gauge and my HW13 (tungsten) 3" BB handloads.

  11. 2017 Axis Bucks

    Went back to my friends ranch in Stonewall, Texas where the Axis are free-ranging. We took these two nice bucks this weekend. I was hoping to take one with my GP100 6" but couldn't get close enough! The big boy on the right was shot at 385yards using a Weatherby Vangaurd in Creedmoor.

  18. Sarge's New Leupold VX-R Patrol

    I mounted a VXR 1.25-4 with the pig plex on my 6.8 SPC and have taken so many Axis and Whitetail with it that I lost count. Love the etched reticle which is easy to see in low light without the led lit. Sarge, You will like it the more you use it. Wait a minute Bobcat, I remember somebody telling me.....no pictures it didn't happen so where is the yote pic .....lol
