Range thoughts

It was warm enough (+25 F) and I was free enough to hit the range today. SIG pistol brace= nice. Still won't keep an extended charging handle off of my nose. KAK super tube time. My 40 round Gen M3 PMag  did not work well with my reloads in 300 BLK. It did work in my 5.56. My guess is rounds sliding forward and then hanging up. They were squirrelly when loading the mag, wanting to jump around worse than in standard capacity magazines.

Mags still have to be pried out of the FNX 45 at +25 F. Guess it will be a summer toy. I have too many mags to just get rid of it. Unless I can get a G41 or M&P45 and a bunch of 14 round mags in trade.

Tula Brass 9mm is crap. (duh?) I had 4 fail to feeds in 100 rounds on my M&P9. One of the FTFs was the last round in a mag that would not load past 12 or 13 rounds. It loaded fine before and after that. And one cut the hell out of my finger while loading. Wonder if I can unload it at the next gun show. Half of me wants to sit on it, the other wants it shot or gone so I can reload the brass.

Weird what you find at the gun show

I was looking for brass and primers, as usual. Ended up finding pistol buffer tubes and assorted AR parts at good prices. Go figure.

The dreaded ghost gun! Capable of shooting thirty caliber clips in .5 seconds!

The 1983 Corvette is safe!

Apparently a sinkhole opened up inside the Corvette Museum in Kentucky, swallowing 8 Corvettes. Per the story, the only surviving 1983 Corvette prototype did not fall in and they were allowed to remove it. Wonder if there is an old coal mine or something similar under the building?

The little things

Like finding 22LR in stock at Walmart before the neckbeards get it.
