One of Those Days

Have you ever had one of those days when you just want to beat your head against the wall.....

I just had mine. Think I'll go home and hide from the world.

See 'ya tomorrow.


SHTF Ammunition From LuckyGunner

When first requested to review Fiocchi .45 FMJ 230 grain ammunition by LuckyGunner I thought to write the standard, 'it shoots, it shoots clean and with zero malfunctions.'
Then the can of Fiocchi .45 ammo arrived via UPS and I immediately changed my mind. Yes, trust me here, it shoots very well indeed. I can write this with a straight face and hold fast to my Christian values because the only compensation I received for this post was the one can of Fiocchi .45. Since I am a member of the vast community of survivalist (or preppers if you insist) the packaging of the Fiocchi immediately caught my attention.

It arrived sealed in a nice can, sealed. Get it. Remember the old statement written years ago, 'stock up on the three B's. Bacon, beans, and bullets. This is the 'bullet' you'll want to stack deep.

Now, let's see how it performs. When my group arrived at our BOL (bug out location) I set a target at standard combat range.

I began with a cold barrel and a magazine of average off the shelf white box .45 ball ammo; gave me a chance to work the kinks out, limber my booger hook and get my rusty self back to the fundamentals.

After a practice round I popped the metal lid of Fiocchi's Canned Heat. I'll post each picture as we explore the sealed tin.

Above, my first thought was, "look, a can of jewels". The rounds were very bright and clean.

Back to my first magazine of white box ball ammo. Below the results using the 'wallyworld' stuff.

Not pretty, of course it's just my rusty trigger finger....this next picture is my first group using the Fiocchi. Forgive the one flyer.

Above, firing as fast as I could acquire the front sight. I was impressed with the performance of this ammunition. BTW, I am a left eye dominate right handed shooter.

My friends this is the ammunition you should buy for that 'day.' Grab a few cans (I will) and sling some lead with a couple and then take the rest and set it aside. It will not be affected by weather, and the performance is excellent. Trust me, if it had not preformed to my standards, I'd be very honest with you.

You can find the Fiocchi .45 here.
