Slinging Lead

The Duke and I have a date with our friends to burn powder and sling lead tomorrow out at our retreat. After Senior Chief is released by is cute wife, Jacked Up Glock Mom, he might join us. We're not sure yet if she'll allow it.

We'll do a few chores on the Boar's Nest then hit our private firing range. Should be fun. It's been a while since I've had the smell of gun powder in my nostrils. Can't wait.

It's a given I'll take along one of my AR's and a couple of Glocks. Maybe, just maybe, a 1911...not sure.

I'll try and take pictures.

These are file photos. I'm not about to hobble into our office and open a safe just for a picture...


I should dig out my M1A and let her stretch her legs but have you priced good surplus ammo lately. She'll stay securely tucked away in the gunsafe.

Perhaps I should take a couple of revolvers. I've many from which to choose. Decisions, decisions.



Again, the price of ammunition paints my thoughts when I think about unleashing my Raging Bull.





Whatever baby I decide to take for a ride I'm sure it'll be enjoyable to shoot. Come on down and join us.

See 'ya late tomorrow.

  3. Yes, the ammo adds up. Sometimes I think the firarms and printers are the dollar equivelant of twins seperated at birth: its not the front end cost, its all the refills.

    Save some refills for the zombies!

  4. Ya ammo prices suck. I am pretty much limited to reloads these days. I never get to shoot around here on the weekends because it constantly seems to be raining starting every Friday until Sunday afternoon.

    Hope you have fun my friend.

  7. Dang! Now I miss the old hunting camp with gun range all over again. Those were good times. At least I'm home now, where it's possible to shoot a gun right off my deck without anyone calling the cops.

    1. Hey, if I could step outside and shoot off my back deck I'd be the happiest man in the world. Thanks, my good friend. And, welcome home.
