    I was actually just using cheap Federal ammo at that time. I have a video of me shooting a 16 16 cardboard box at 175.6 yards with that same cheap ammo with the same gun off hand. Definitely didn't hit it every time but still was fun doing it........ even if it was only 12 F out and slightly windy.

  6. Was doing something in my gun room several weeks ago and realized how much empty brass I had. So to remedy this situation, I've been doing a lot of reloading. I even got 500 rounds of 38 special loaded for my dad. Of course, I still have the problem of more empty brass than loads and I'm out of bullets for my pistols. Waiting on tax return to stock up on more supplies.

  7. I was trained to stress shoot at 3 yards, 7 yards, 12 yards. Either ready position or from the holster. Strong hand, weak hand, different positions. moving targets, stoppage situations. etc. Never get that type of training at a regular stationary target range with no holster draws which is too bad for actual self defense situations as training takes over.

    I took my first formal handgun training in summer of 2016. I was a decent bullseye shooter, but never trained on draw stroke, and actual self defense type training. I was blown away what I learned. I've been fortunate enough to have a guy local to me that does the training. I've taken numerous classes since then, and even taking his first level class multiple times. For a concealed carrier to not get training on drawing and shooting from concealment, or at least practicing it on your own, you are doing yourself a disservice. I've been getting local friends involved and gotten a few through this guy's first level class since then.

  9. Hey, for all of you that reload, I found a place out of Mississippi that supplies hard cast bullets for a very nice price! Summers Enterprise.

    This is exactly why I started doing 3 gun competitions. I never felt I was accomplishing anything plinking or at a range. Add a timer, audience, multiple things to remember, diff angles, stress reloads, penalties, and you really push yourself to be better in a stressful situation. So damn fun too!

Ended up giving it to my son for his WWII collection.
    I see some K98s came in and were sold out immediately. I paid $254 for mine in 1993. Now sell for $1299.99!!

  12. Amazon has a good 42" Plano Gun Case on sale for $55 right now if anyone is interested. It is supposed to be a good alternative to the Pelican cases, so I went ahead and picked one up.

    Sam's has been running a couple small pelican knockoffs for about $20-$25 lately. One is a carry on sized rolling case and one looks like it's brief cased size.

    I saw the rolling one last week I think.. I really need to get a Sam's membership I guess, they've been having a lot of things we could use lately.

    Quick update on these. Got them in the other day and did some testing. Checking the actual weights on the projectiles and the overall quality of mold, they are pretty consistent. Just as good, if not better than the more expensive ones I was getting. Still haven't put them on paper to see if they fly true but just shooting them into the hill at clay pigeons, they seem to be right on.

  16. Guess I should update about the Summers Enterprise lead. They shoot great. No complaints at all! I also have no complaints about these CFE223 fueled Nosler Varmageddons. Five shots at 100 yards.

    Was working on getting the load just right for my rifle today. Decided this group was good enough.
