    A good trip

    I had a great trip to the range yesterday with a friend. I was surprised at how nice and safe everyone was. I didn't get a gun pointed at me, not even once! I shot my G33 for the first time, and also shot it with a 9mm conversion barrel and mag (saves money). Shot the marlin 60 for the first time since reassembling it, sighted in the Izhmash .308 (goin' huntin'!), sent a few mags through the Hi-point, and 4 mags through the XD45. I DID have a FTF jam in my Glock. I simply dropped the mag, held the gun up, and yelled "hey everyone look, this is what it looks like when hell freezes over!" (not joking, I really did!) The gun is broken in, but I think the FTF issue was a product of the aftermarket barrel in the weapon. All in all, a good day!

    I owe you a ...if I had still lived out in the Aleutian Islands...I'd stop and make that purchase on my trip back into the mainland (usually went through Seattle)...not sure where you are...

    Take care...

    Sounds like you had fun.
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    Range time is always good time...a bad day at the range is better than a good day at work!
