    Awesome Day at the Range

    My parents are in town for the weekend, so me, Grandpa Calvito and Calvito Jr hit the range first thing this morning. First, Dad introduced Calvito Jr. to the .357 magnum with the same Ruger New Model Blackhawk we used to shoot when I was but a wee lad. Then we shot my SR1911 and Dad's LC9 and SR9. Came home, cleaned the guns and got some Chick-fil-A. What a great way to spend the day. Here are some pictures:

    Judging by your post, your last name is either Sturm or Ruger!

    Glad you guys were able to get some shooting in, as there is close to no other way to have family time and enjoy yourselves any better.

    Yeah, I didn't mention that I was carrying the LCP too. I guess we are kind of a Ruger family. It was a great time.

    Looks like a great time. Like the smile on Jr's face in pic 2.

    Greetings from Richmond/Rosenberg, TX

    a big +1
    G-d, Make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who would seek to destroy me. And G-d if today is truly the day you call me home, then let me die in a pile of empty brass.
