Always thought I'd like a 1911...I was right. First single action semi auto I've ever owned, very impressed with it so far.

material list

cardboard ( empty beer or soda box or anyother free cardboard you have laying around to recycle ) cut it into the shape you want , I make them into silloetts

flouressent or white spray paint
black spray paint
clear packing tape

instructions

1 spray the cardboard with the bright colored paint and let it dry

2 cover the whole thing with clear tape, over lap the seams slightly so that the 1st coat of paint is completely sealed

3 spray the tape with the black paint and let dry
:
4 shoot at it , your bullet holes will crack the tape revealing the colored bullet hole . to reuse , simply cover each hole with a piece of clear tape and respray it black , this can be done in the field .

here are 2 , the black one was shot with 410 bird shot and the white one with pistol rounds . you can also play around with multi colors in the base layer , like adding red or pink to " vital " spots



for comparison there is a store bought "shoot -n -c " target stuck to the home made version



happy shooting
Thanks!

I have also experimented with using the brightly colored side of the cardboard like empty beer boxes and skipping the 1st paint step , only cover with tape and put the contrasting top coat . It works well as long as the under layer is a bright color . otherwise you are better to paint it .

Just buy a roll of heavy kraft paper to make the targets from.
the idea is to put clear tape on the target and paint it, making a shoot n see target , the painted tape will crack when hit , revealing the different color underneath so you can see your shots easier .

it is the cheaper home made version of these

also this is a way to reuse cardboard laying around the house and not have to buy it to make the targets. May as well get a second use out of it before it gets discarded .

I am thinking of deflowering my new C&R FFL by getting a Walther P1. This will be a fun gun mainly for plinking and simple pleasure of ownership, but home defense capable if needed.

I've been doing my homework and reading extensively about them, but I figured someone here must have one and could tell me his impressions.

I have a P-1. I have had it for several years. Mine was a new, never issued, police gun. It came with 2 magazines, a cleaning kit, and a holster. I am surprised to learn that it is a relic. It shoots like a modern gun. The only issue I have is that the gun shoots 4" low and 2" left at 10 yards. The low part can be corrected by changing the front sight - they actually come in 5 different heights. The left part isn't as easy to fix - the rear sight is not adjustable. I guess I could move it some with a hammer and punch, but I have chosen to just aim a little to the right. Oh yeah, the brass ejects up and back. Button your collar before shooting.

Step aside boys, here's a real gun

Seen at a New Zealand Army base a couple of weeks ago. Property of the Singapore Army who are down here in a training exercise.






Or perhaps you prefer a tank


They come down here because the range of these guns is bigger that the size of their country.

Several thoughts:

1. I'm going to have to find a gunsmith to take the magazine safety off, it's just too rough a pull when shooting freehand, it's got to go. On the rest I'm tolerably accurate.

After living in CA for so many years, I really forgot how much fun it is to go to the range and shoot - I always amuse myself with a lot of .22's as well, cheap to shoot and easier on the ears. Shot my Mark I as well for the first time in years - nearly forgot how much fun that one is, but what a pain loading the magazines is - makes the revolver a lot more fun.
You can do it yourself. Go to http://forums.1911forum.com/showthread.php?t=133740 and see how it's done. I did it to my Hi Power several years ago. As for loading mags, you might try an Uplula loader, http://www.maglula.com/PistolMagLoad...45ACPmags.aspx. They're fast and you won't have a sore thumb at the end of the day.

I hope this helps.

Mike

I went to the one in KC again....remembered to pick up my surplus pants and shirt for $10....they are great outside work pants and shirts.

The funny thing I saw was the AK people, this time two scribbled out prices this time $1300 for a century AK pattern rifle....6 months ago they sold for $600....and these people (more than one) did not even make a new price sticker, just scribble out the old price.

Only "black rifle" I saw that I might be intrested in was a nice FAL that the guy wanted $3k for....only saving grace was it was not a fraken-fal from century....I told the guy he had a nice rifle, but the mouth breathers looking for AR's would not know what it even was...he agreed, but that was WAY out of my price range....There was also a CETME with wood for $600....that was tempting....for some stupid reason I want one of those.

I did buy another 1903 Colt....it was once black....does that count?
