    Had a great visit with member Donp326 and his wife

    Outstanding and solid individual. Him and his wonderful wife stopped by today for a visit. We had some food here and of course did some shooting.

    Don let me shoot his Sig 220, His PP, and his P-1.

    He has a great collection of P-1’s and P-38’s from the WWII and post war in his collection. It was really neat to enjoy shooting his old world German guns. Fantastically smooth and accurate. Actually ahead of their time.

    Very enjoyable day, and I’m sure we will do it again. I introduced Don to combat style shooting and moving with his PP, which is his pocket gun, and he was deadly accurate and caught on quickly.

    Good Times. Very solid people!

    It is fun to read about the meet-ups of our members.
    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.

    Always great to meet other members face to face.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    Glockman we enjoyed the visit too. Really enjoyed the work out with the PP. Buy the way the PP locked up doing the drill we did. Have to send it to my gunsmith to hat it fixed. I was using my reloads.

    I don't crimp my .380's. I know there is a fired case still in the chamber the safety-decocker works as well trigger and the hammer drops like its supposed to. Just can't budge the slide like it seems to be frozen in place.

    A wooden dowel that fits the barrel and a tap or two from a hammer will probably do the trick; unless that’s already been tried.

    Don't have one Ill hit the hardware store see if they have one. I know I couldn't budge with a rubber mallet. Tried it with the grips off and the gun in a vise , still couldn't make it move.

    The dowel worked be it took more than just a couple of hits. I broke a couple pieces of dowel in the beginning. I put four mags through the PP and it performed flawlessly.

    Glad to hear it did the trick. I’ve had to do that before.

    Now the question is, why did it get jammed up?
