Have I Mentioned...

...that I LOVE THIS GUN!?

I needed gas.  I live in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia. I don't know why the stupid is so strong here but we are still paying $2.15 - $2.25 here.  But slide just south into Virginia and you can get it for $1.79 for cash.  AND in order to do that you have to drive right past the shooting range.  Well, alrighty then.

The Baretta has a loooooonnnnngggg trigger pull in double action.  And I need to get the feel of that - in a self defense situation that first shot is going to be the most important.   I put a target out at just short of 25 yards and started working on the first magazine of ammo.  At some point I realized that the four others on the line were watching me.  And when I finished and stepped back, one of them said to me "I'm NEVER coming to your house uninvited."

In some recent post I said that some days are diamond and some days are rust.

Today was diamond.


  1. Good shootin', Tex! Srsly, that's very good (but you know that).

  2. Nice! I am lucky just to hit the cardboard backing.
