    The scope is basically a computer, it will take me a while to get everything figured out.

    Daughter & husband were here for a BBQ today. He asked about cleaning his Springer XD .45, so we did. Also asked about a smaller gun cause he gets tired of carrying the big, 14 round gun around in his belt or boot. Suggested a shoulder rig for one that big or a smaller gun in a 9 mil. He doesn't like anything smaller than a .45. Also wants to be able to shoot the heafd off a rattle snad=ke out to 20 feet. Yet, he has not even fired the gun a hundred times cause the ammo is so expensive. He said the gun needs to be sighted in.

    I tried to enlighten him on the inherant accuracy and practical accuracy of each firearm and about fixed combat sights. Told him about all he could do was windage adjustments with the rear sight. All he ever had was a few long guns. Hopes to get rifle accuracy out of his pistol. He cant seem to understand how much you have to shoot to get good with a handgun. Also suggested a red dot or laser, but he did nor want to spend that much.

    Well, think I will let him shoot it off a sandbag rest to see if he can do any better and tcheck his flinch. Check the groupability of his gun several weights and brands of ammo.

    Put 80 rounds through my S&W M&P 22C, 22LR pistol. I think they forgot to put primer in this one: 686E70B0-43F2-4646-9A0D-AAAC2686058F.jpeg

    I drove to Columbus, GA to retrieve a pistol that was stolen from my vehicle back in April of 2018. It's a Ruger LCP. The 7-round magazine and 3 rounds were in the evidence box, but the magazine was disassembled. It appears that the magazine is missing a part. It will go back together, but the base plate doesn't lock in place. Also, I see little spots of rust here and there. There is some inside the barrel, close to the muzzle. I'll clean it up and, whenever I get the chance, take it to the range and see how it performs.

    Sounds like the thief kept it close to the family jewels (IWB) with-out a holster. LOL & Happy New Year.

    Took a cheapo laser off the son in law's XD Tact .45 so the gun would fit in a shoulder holster rig we got him for Xmas. The laser was a Wallt World 30 bucks cheapie that kept shaking loose anyway.
