Just a couple of photos of my new build. An AR pistol in 300 Blackout. Should be FUN!

You have to be careful with tracers but they are informative. Went to a private shoot out in the desert once, lots of different firearms, including several in .50 BMG. Started some fires about a half mile away with tracer and API. The hill we were shooting into had a number of rocks on it and it was interesting to see the path of the projectile - especially the .50BMG - when the projectile hit a rock. No small number of times did it go straight up quite a distance - as in hundreds of feet to a thousand feet or more - also off to the side.

As in your vid there were a number of shots that appeared to go off in directions after they hit something. This is why a person needs to be very careful about where they shoot - tracer or not - ricochets go off in wild directions and for quite a distance.

Also, make sure you clean your firearm well after shooting tracer or API or especially any flare round. Many of these can be corrosive in one way or another.

Yeah, not everyone likes black rifles

Thanks for the compliments on the photos, it is my main hobby (at least the one I spend most time/money on).

Well I just got back from the range. The 300 Blackout pistol shot excellently. Standing, unsupported shooting at 20 yds produced cloverleafs in the center of the bulls eye.

The 300 BLK is MUCH nicer shooting out of a short barrel compared to 556. There was really no concussion or muzzle flash, where the 556 slapped you in the face and the fire ball could blind you out of the 7.5" barrel.

It was noticeably quieter than the 556 as well, and this is with full power loads (20gr. H110 with a 110 gr VMax bullet). I'm going to buy some military 147 grain 30 cal pulled bullets for some cheap plinking fun!


BTW, here is one of my other range toys, and my carry piece, an ATI FX 45 Military. It has been an outstanding pistol and has ran without a hiccup. A real tack driver if I do my part. Of course, I can't leave anything alone/stock, so I changed a few things.

Oh yeah. The gun was thoroughly cleaned and reoiled. It came out black for several patches. Also well aware of the flammable nature of the rounds, but be sure the fields behind me are freshly plowed with little dead vegetation to catch on fire.

My buddy has been bothering me for months to attend an Advanced Pistol course, so this weekend our schedules finally freed up and we were able to attend. Our instructor was an ex-Green Beret and currently a government weapons trainer. I hadn't been to the range since September and only a a time or two all year long, and have never practiced drawing from a concealed holster and shooting from behind barricades. But he ran us through a bunch of drills and then put us through the ICE qualification course at the end of the course as our final test, and I ended up scoring 235 out of 250 possible points, which was 5 points over the minimum required to qual for "Expert", 210 was the min qual score.

The sweet part is I didn't use a fancy gun, just my CZ75 and some shitty Wolf Ammo!



BTW in 4 years and many rounds I've never had any fail to feed, fail to eject, double feeds, fail to fires or any other malfunctions with the CZ. I have seen Glocks double feed from limp wristing. There's only 2 reasons I wouldn't CCW, 1: It's too big and heavy 2: external safety

Picked up an ATI commander length last year and bobbed it as well as changed out the hammer, trigger, sights, thumb safety and then parkerized everything. The factory trigger was serviceable but I wanted a little better. Very pleased with the gun for the money, chose it due to the cost...in case I screwed the bob-job. I'll be doing another bobbed commander but it's a gift for my son next year, so I'll probably buy Caspian slide and frame since I can get them without markings and then engrave it.

See, that's the diff - my ex never gave me anything but grief - she still does even though I avoid her like the plague.

But yes, it would be nice to have a spouse who would point out that you are about to make a duplicate firearm purchase that you probably didn't intend to.

I guess I'm lucky, my wife has no problem with guns. She has an LCP, G26 and a P2000 in 9mm.

So I just bought a G22(40mm). I'm not a big Glock guy but I thought it might make a good hd/truck/camping beat around gun. On it's first outing she wanted to shoot it. I said that you're not going to care for it. She's a petite gal with small hands and can hardly open lids on jars when they're tight. Well after she ran 2 boxes thru it I had to start hinting that I'd like to shoot it too. She loved it. Go figure! She wasn't that accurate but I wouldn't want to be standing in front of her.

Fast forward. We're at a gun show last weekend and she picks up a Springfield 1911 45. Her first reaction is...Oooo that feels good. Hmm, I guess I better start re-reading the "1911 under $1000" thread again.

Guns, motorcycles, cars, food, rent - it doesn't matter how I spent (or spend) the money I earned, she would give me grief about that and most any other thing in our lives (relatives, you name it). If it wasn't money (or attention) spent on her then it was misspent money.

'nuff said

back to guns

Sometimes USPS tracking is not good....

Just because things seem to move so slow...I'm not sure if this package will overfly to the other side for final sorting then come back or not - hopefully tomorrow, but if not, for sure Tuesday...but darnit...don't know why I'm so eager, I've waited 20 years or more.

think I'm going to wrap it under the tree so my pacifist Niece will get to see it, and her English boyfriend...should be good for grins, particuarly with a few wrapped boxes of cartridges also under the tree. From Santa, of course!

Of course, now that it's near arriving, it's started to snow, so I may spend more time skiing than shooting - oh well. Life is good either way.

Ok fuckers. Today was a breakthrough day. Three guns got shot for the first time in ten years, and my boy shot his first gun bigger than a .22.
He loved the Ar-15, and was just as good of a shot with it as I expected he would be since he's been using a 15-22 all year. And he surprised even me when he decide to at least give the M1 Garand a go. One shot was enough.
