    Talking Greetings from West Georgia

    One of my favs is guns and shooting, so finding this sight is a godsend. I have just returned to my homestate at the request of my ailing mother, who has a crippling disease and can barely perform most of the simplest activities that we all take for granted. Its payback time for her giving birth and raising me.
    The super-plus side is that I no longer live in Kalifornia and my choice of weapons and carry conceal is not limited to what the state deems fit !
    In fact, I just purchased a mint colt mustang .380 for backup concealment / secondary (how I love the 10 minute wait, not the 10 day....). My primary is rugers' sp101 .357 snubby in the dark grey stainless (only from Lipsey's) with crimson trace laser grips. My truck gun is a S&W 1066 10mm with the factory tritium nitesights, plus there are others that I have that can do a variety of duties when called upon.
    Anywho, its great to be around like-minded folks with similar interests and this is one that we all need to support each other in. Artz

    Welcome back to Ga. Recommend you take a drive down to Columbus, and visit Shooter's of Columbus. Great selection, prices and they have an indoor range.

    mustang

    I really did not shoot it a whole lot probably at the most 300 rounds. I never had any problems at all and it was very accurate. I carried it for several months and after i switched to a kahr pm9 it became a safe queen. I have wished several times I hadnt traded it in. Theres not alot of them around. I still have a set of pachmar rubber grips for it that have never been put on because the factory screws were not long enough for them. If your interested I will give them to you . I may also have a holster for it i will have to look through my holster collection. Have you found a place to shoot Yet? There is a WMA range on hwy 219 between Lagrange and Franklin. Hope you enjoy it

    Yeah Cashman.....I know where its at. I grew up over in Heard county off 219 about 7 miles from there. Thats where I shoot.
    I would appreciate all the lil' goodies, I will diffinently use them. It is a very sweet piece. One that I will not let go anytine soon.
    Fact is...I headed up to Villa Rica to GA. arms ammo in a few minutes to pick up a 500 pack of 95 GR. round nose .380 acp and other goodies. Gotta stay in practice you know !
    Gonna send you a PM.
