Later I got a trigger job from a more skilled craftsman and this gun has one of the nicest triggers I've ever felt on a 1911, breaks crisply at about 2.5#. A little light for defense or carry, but I mostly used it in IDPA and some IPSC matches, and just for plinking. I actually haven't shot it in a while, think I'll have to take it out in the next couple of weeks and blast out the cob-webs.

I was actually going shooting and clicked on this thread . My 1911 is flawless in performance.But that gun is like looking at a pinup Girl. I would not doubt if my gun jams up today just out of spite.

1903 Colt

Found a smallish Colt pocket pistol in the safe and was looking at it with my grandson. For some reason I thought it was .32. Turns out I was wrong. It's a .380. We took it to the range yesterday and it rocks. Gun shoots really good, very accurate and with all that steel is pleasant to shoot.
Grandson was also looking at the .32 rimfire S&W Top Break (1863) in there but no ammo for it. I guess I was thinking of that guns .32 and that was the reason I was thinking the Colt was a .32

got scope

Got the scope (leupold 4.5-14 x 50 with varmint reticle) mounted on the Rock River Arms 24" varmint. Bore sighted it with leupold bore sighter and took it to the range. Took 5 shots to get to center of target at 100yds. Stuck one of those little round orange dime sized pasters on the target and fired 3 shots. All three hit the dot. Yeah, its a shooter.

Darned background checks!

I had to wait almost 17 minutes to get clearance for this one. Saw it in the store and I just really like FNH - I've got three FN built Brownings and they are all excellent quality. This one is in .40 S&W.



What a great deal this pistol is too, three mags and an excellent storage case, replacable backstrap included as well.

And on a Sunday....

Here's the pair of FN. The Hi Power in 9 MM - and boy, it's impossible to tell they are the same factory!


The Hi Power is a lot narrower and feels heavier empty - but both point very naturally.

Always better to have a gun with family history behind it. Nice.

Nice. I do like lever guns but my Marlin is a lot newer. A gun with history is a thing of beauty.

My Dad and Grandad favored bolt action, but I got their rifles, Dad had a Browning '06, He bought Grandad a Weatherby .270 around 1964, and I have that as well. Don't shoot 'em much but love to look at them. Won't ever need to buy a hunting rifle.

Question

So if a guy had a 50 cal ammo can of 223 full to the top, about how many rounds would that be?

I won't even step foot in a Dick's anymore - they screwed a bunch of people over after the Newton shooting by canceling their orders for ARs - including screwing over the company they had an ongoing contract with to sell the ARs.

I won't deal with sellers who pulls such BS on their customers or the businesses they deal with or that cave to political pressure.

That said, it is not uncommon to have a purchase be delayed where it is subject to a background check. The seller cannot do anything about it if the background check is required by law for purchase - the agency doing the check returns a "delayed" status and then you just have to wait. Sometimes it comes back in an hour, sometimes a few days. It probably would not do any good to go elsewhere either as they will hit the same roadblock - if they don't then that means the delay was removed.

Always considered the Hi Power to be one of the most comfortable guns I've ever got my paws around.

It's quite a good piece and relatively advanced for it's day. Seems that the plastic pistols have taken over, plus of course, today a 13 round magazine seems...quaint...considering some of the Glock out there with 22 round mags.

And it's a great shooter, mine has been trouble free so far.
