Honestly no thought given toward race, color , ect , its just that the black and white paint offer good contrast down range . That and the paint is only $0.96 a can vs $4 or more for flouresant colors .

I suppose I'm screwed no matter what color I make the tagtes, someone will always be offended .

And as for the tennis ball . I wanted to shoot it myself after walking into it so many times during the build . Normally it rests against the trucks windshield .

I'm sure I overpaid for mine, but I did not a 9MM, I wanted a Hi Power, so I paid what the market demanded, plus for the walnut grip model and plus again for the adjustable rear sight.

It's amusing to compare the slab sided design of the new FN against the nearly sensuous curves on the Hi Power. And the HP is a much more classic profile.

I agree that it fits the hand better than anything except maybe my K22 Masterpiece, but that's in another entire category.

Lucked out and scored 500 rounds for the .40 today - lucked out at THREE gun stores - got my ration of 3 boxes from Wallyworld, then bought 4 more at another shop [and left several boxes on their shelves] then visited my local store and they had some on the shelf so to support them I grabbed another two boxes, not cleaning them out.

Nothing else but .40 - 9 mm was all gone, etc. Still virtually no .22 to be found.

Back in the day when I shot at least every week, one of my shootn pardners worked at a golf course. He would come up with a bucket of balls pretty often. We would tape them to strings and shoot them at a 100.
A golf ball will do funny things when hit @3000fps

I almost bought a .40 the other day for no other reason than every shop I went to that day only had .40 pistols and .40 ammo in stock .40 ammo is running about $8-10 cheaper a box than 9mm right now

.22lr is in stock a few places but I really can't bring myself to spend $60 for a box of 500 rounds. I've been mostly shooting my mosins since it's still $100 for 440 rounds

I believe that is known as an oxymoron . Nothing is legal in mass.

I am not sure on the logistics of that.

I almost bought a TRP and then found out they were assembled in the US from Brazilian parts (or so I was told by SA). Still nice though.

Another note, got two boxes of TulaAmmo for the 9mm - boy is that stuff JUNK - oh, no dead rounds but sheesh, what a pain to load, several misfeeds [the first time with the Hi Power!] Crap, crap, crap.

Now the fun part - cleaning 'em! Weekday shooting at the range is great - no one there!
Interesting that tula caused you problems, I have a hi power and a cz75 and shoot tula and never had a problem. I would think a hi power is capable of shooting just about anything being such an old design.Ive shot 9mms from the 60s Might need some break-in. Mine is a 1977 and was wondering if yours being new is rated to shoot p ammo? HP is my favorite gun, always wished it could be outfitted with a decocker DA/SA

I know, that was my point. They are assembled either in Brazil or the USA (and so stamped Brazil or USA).
