    Range day

    I traded for a 637-2 S&W snubbie last week and got to take it to the range today. I also took my sp101 and my Glock 22. I talked my brother into going too and he took his little Tarus 380 and his Glock 27.

    I had 250 rounds of .40 for the glocks to shoot up, and close to 50 rounds each for my 38 and 357. The 38 and 357 ammo was a good 25 years old and I wanted to shoot it up. I can happily tell you that that old ammo fired just as well as new stuff every round.

    My new to me AirWeight shoots dead on and I probably put about 60 rounds through it counting the new Buffalo Bore ammo and all of the old ammo I had did well. A lot of the old ammo was +P+ and although the gun only says +P on it the other didn't seem to be any stronger, it just put out some bigger pieces of unburnt powder. Anyway I'll just use the +P from now on.

    My SP101 hadn't been fired for those 25 some odd years and it did good too, but it's one you hide the bullseye behind the front blade or it will shoot low. The old 357's were not real easy to get out after firing but that was probably due to needing a good coat of oil on everything, it was kinda dry, but it's stainless and easy to ignore.

    The G22 did good as expected and I even let my brother shoot it a lot since it used to be his. He also let me shoot his G27 and it did just as good, but it does kick more than my G22.

    I didn't take any pictures this time, you all know what those guns look like anyway.

    Now I have to clean these guns and buy some new ammo.

    60 rounds of Buffalo Bore and true +P+ through a 637 airweight?

    You have far more endurance than I....

    Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!


    Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.
