+1 DPMS is running good just got back from the range and it cycles like greased lightning now. They didnt even make a comment about me shooting the WOLF ammo. I will give DPMS a top rate score on the customer service when you have a repeat problem.

Sounds like you need a Colt 1911

You should have talked to me before and I would have set you straight on some of your firearms

Not trying to HIJACK sully's thread and setting all fun aside for a second, I enjoyed shooting with you on Sunday, and I am glad to hear your AR is working, looking forward to the next shoot

I've been thinking about a Springfield Mil Spec. But .45ACP ammo is about twice as much as 9mm. I know, it's more "powerful".

Now there are exceptions... but generally speaking, once one goes 1911.. they never go back.
I personally need the look of blued steel somewhere, someplace!
Combat tupperware just doesn't do it for me.

For a 1911 style I think Kimber would beat a Colt any day. Never seen Quinlans fuck up. (very nice) but if you want the best a H&K-USP will do.

Thanks for the thoughts....I have no problems with used guns, most of my collection, that which hasn't fallen overboard in various tragic boating accidents, is used.

I'm sure you got a great deal on a Colt, but most of us won't have that opportunity. Buying used pistols out of state is almost impossible these days. Overnight shipping of $30-$40, plus $25 for the local dealer transfer, pretty much kills any out of state deals.

Reloading is in itself a hobby above and beyond shooting. The cost savings vs time involved to do it, just isn't worth it for plinking ammo. Unless you're a target shooter wanting the utmost in quality control, there is no point in it. I know people who have thousands of dollars in progressive loaders sitting collecting dust because the time involved doesn't make economic sense. Besides the fact that most firearm KABOOMS that I read about are caused by self-reloaded ammunition. Simply not worth my time.

A Nauseous Nocturne
From: The Essential Calvin and Hobbes, by Bill Watterson

Another night deprived of slumber,
Hours passing without number,
My eyes trace 'round the room. I lay

Dripping sweat and now quite certain
That tonight the final curtain
Drops upon my short life's precious play.

From the darkness, by the closet
Comes a noise, much like a faucet
Makes: a madd'ning drip-drip-dripping sound.

It seems some ill-proportioned beast,
Anticipating me deceased,
Is drooling poison puddles on the ground.

A can of Mace, a forty-five,
Is all I'd need to stay alive,

But no weapon lies within my sight.

Oh my gosh! A shadow's creeping,
Omnious and black, it's seeping
Slowly 'cross a moonlit square of light!

Suddenly a floorboard creak
Announces the bloodsucking freak
Is here to steal my future years away!
A sulf'rous smell now fills the room
Heraldingmy imm'nent doom!
A fang gleams in the dark and murky gray!

Oh, blood-red eyes and tentacles!
Throbbing, pulsing ventricles!
Mucus-oozing pores and frightful claws!

Worse, in terms of outright scariness,
Are the suckers multifarious
That grab and force you in its mighty jaws!

This disgusting aberration
Of nature needs no mitivation
To devour helpless children in their beds.
Relishing despairing moans,
It chews kids up and sucks their bones,
And dissolves inside its mouth their li'l heads!

I know this 'cause I read it not
Two hours ago, and then I got
The heebie-jeebies and these awful shakes.

My parents swore upon their honor
That I was safe, and not a goner.
I guess tomorrow they'll see their sad mistakes.

In the morning, they'll come in
And say, "waht was that awful din
We heard last night? You kept us both from sleep!"

Only then will they surmise
The gruesomeness of my demise
And see that my remains are in a heap.

Dad will look at Mom and say,
"Too bad he had to go that way."
And Mom will look at Dad, and nod assent.

Mom will add, "Still, it's fitting,
That as he was this world quitting,
He should leave another mess before he went."

They may not mind at first, I know.
They will miss me later, though,
And perhaps admit that they were wrong.
As memories of me grow dim,
They'll say, "We were too strict with him.
We should have listened to him all along."

As speedily my end approaches,
I bid a final "buenas noches"
To my best friend here in all the world.
Gently snoring, whiskers seeming
To sniff at smells (he must be dreaming),
He lies snugled in the blankets, curled.

Suddenly the monster knows I'm not alone!

There's an animal in bed with me!
An awful beast he did not see!
The monster never would've come if he had known!

The monster, in his consternation,
Demonstates defenestration,
And runs and runs and runs and runs away.

Rid of the pest,
I now can rest,
Thanks to my best friend, who saved the day.

It was great having you all out there. I had a fantastic time, and I will be reminded of it every time I move for the next week. A big thanks once again to Sully for every thing you do for us! Also a thanks to Fedgunner for the use of the wheels.

Here's a couple more random pics. There are more that I will hopefully have some time to post soon.

I always say a bad shooting is a helluva lot better then a good day at work, except pay day cause then you can pay for more ammo!

Let me also throw in some thanks to those who donated some trigger time and rounds (Death, Quinn and Fed) much appreciated guys. Sully, thanks for the day, as always top notch.
It was great to shoot with you all again and I look forward to the next time.

Yep! The wife and I and a couple friends are still going. Quite a few people ditched out on us (holiday weekend) so we're not making any special reservations. We are just going to show up around 8:30 or 9:00 on Friday and hang out for a while. I would love to see at least a little of both bands. Seems like a great place. I'm looking forward to it.

Then I will be the strongest MOFO that every lived! My leg muscles make going down stairs a new experience in pain control.

Pain killers do absolutely nothing for me, I have a built in immunity to them. The wife just laughed at me when I told her Sully said all our womenz had to give us rub downs.

I will be back for more punishment though!
