    One of those days, doing a mag change and mag falls to the ground. Pull another mag pull trigger - Not charged - Jack the slide - And your like here was I? WTF did I shoot what am I shooting at?

    Still an awesome time. The level of Stress when you put your feet on the XX and wait for the Beep. - So you can quick draw and shoot real fast, and stick to a plan. AS everyone watches.

    It aint a video game
    Did a few comps a few years ago, simply to learn and gain the practice. Only thing I know for sure was that I did best when I shut everyone out, moved at my own pace and concentrated on accuracy without a ton of regard to speed. My scores were way better than when I tried to kick ass.

    I found the peeps to be nice and helpful. One jackass that I happen to know (he's a short range weapons trainer, believe it or not) had an accidental discharge right as his round ended, was DQed, and threw a class five fit even though it was blatantly a DQ. Shit got tense and uncomfortable. I did not enjoy that.

    Interesting, I have seen that twice, The accidental discharge. And they guys kinda walked out red faced, Everyone regardless

    of level has a bad stage or a bad day, but you know way down deep. Time to be a man and eat some humble pie.

    As you know it's fun, very hard, and we all ladies and men kinda lay it all out there. I think it's why I like it so much.

    We even feel for our competitors when it goes sideways, watching a man stand there on the line and empty a magazine trying to hit one metal target, when he usually does 6 of them in 4 seconds - what a thing.

    I'm addicted.

    The Range officers have been emphasizing that allot of late. Too many try to be slick and holster real fast. The time end after your last shot.!! Time to relax, decompress and listen. Nice and slow.. Listen to the range officer., Remove the mag. Put in your pocket Pull back the slide to eject the round. Hold it back - Show the man the empty chamber . When he says I see it. drop slibe drop hammer .. holster. I mean fuck Your all friken JACKED UP from running around shooting at multiple things sometimes 3 rounds a second!!

    Anyway, It's very very mental,

    There it is, last place. Appears I did not get points in two of three stages because I failed to take out or left a mandatory target >

    Just wrapped up a weekend with my 92 year old grandpa and some other family. He wanted to pass on his guns before he went so we all took turns picking out firearms to take home. I ended up with some cool rifles with cool stories and some rifles and shotguns that he didn't know the history on. He told me to sell whatever I wanted but there's only a few I'll probably never shoot and there's no story to them so I'll see if friends want to grab them.

    The favorites I was gifted-

    -Win Model 94 30-30 that he bought the year I was born and carried when he rode his horse rounding up cattle.
    -Colt Army Special 38 that my great grandfathered carried hunting. Looked up the serial number and it will be 100 years old next year.
    -Win Model 71 .348 that he loaned me a few years ago. He made it my first choice in the pickings. The good news-seven boxes of ammo for it.
    -Win Model 75 .22 LR that he shot a bunch of jack rabbits and whistle pigs on the ranch with. Apparently very accurate.
    -Savage Model 24 .22 LR/20 ga over under he kept in his camper since the 70s.
    -My great grandfathers Springfield 1903 30-06 that he hunted with for years before replacing with a pre 64 Model 70 that was already gifted to me on my 16th birthday.
    -A few pump scatters that he can't remember who or where they came from. Probably a bunch of old ranch guns. A couple other .22s and a single shot 20 ga.
    -A Marlin 30-06 that was his big game hunting rifle he bought in the 50s. At the end of the picks, I found out my cousin didn't think about his picks well and didn't get any of our grandpa's actual hunting rifles. I didn't even look at the model...just handed it to my cousin and told him to enjoy it. His girlfriend texted and said that rifle was all he could talk about on the way home.

    Others of note that went to family members included a factory engraved Savage 99 from '54 in .300 Savage, a Weatherby Patrician engraved with his name that he won shooting, 300 Weatherby, Colt 1911 from the '20s, a couple other Savage 24s in different calibers, and a few I'm sure will come out at Thanksgiving.

    I'm not close to much of my family but it was a really cool experience. I can't stand my uncle and as I was going to pick a rifle, he mentioned he really wanted that one and I handed it to him and took his next pick. Some good break throughs. My grandpa laughed and reminisced. I wouldn't change the weekend. I was staying with old g-pops and after everybody left, I poured a bourbon and asked him how he felt. He only said content.

    He also gave me boxes and boxes of ammo. All the center fire isn't corroded and has non-corrosive primers so I'm good there. But there's a bunch of pristine paper hulled shotgun ammo. All looks good. Safe to shoot? I'm okay tossing it too but wondering if there is any value to vintage ammo collectors. I'd give it to them for a beer. Just feel bad tossing it. Rather shoot it or have someone take it who would appreciate it. Anyone know?

    I'll get some pics up as I clean and oil them. Most of them haven't been looked at or much less fired in 20 years.

    Nice, really. Keep the Win 75. Regretted learning that the family model 58 got sold by my dad at a garage sale.

    Priceless. The guns are nice too.

    I love those Savage 24s. My Granddad carried one in .222/20ga. as his primary deer rifle my entire life. I can't look at it without thinking of him.

    Wow, you are rich beyond words.

    Enjoy and take care of them as he has wished. One day it will be your turn to pass them on.

    Blessings are real.

    Great first pick. The 38 and 30-30 were good too.


    The paper shells are worth money, maybe $25-100 a box.

    Great experience. Great memories. Write down the story now so you can pass it along.

    My uncle gave me his collection. Some had stories, others were just things he had picked up along the way. Dumped some of the low end stuff, but ended up with some pretty cool pieces. He hunted ruffed grouse and had tons of shotguns.

    Favorite story, actually the only one he ever told me about his WWII experience. He was a private and trained in artillery. He was pulled from his company, given a rifle and sent into the Battle of the Bulge. Fought in the Black Forest and Ardennes. Said they were going through a village collecting firearms, piling them in the street, then running over them with a tank.

    Said an old man came out carrying two guns. Neither spoke the other's language. Fellow handed the guns to my uncle with tears in his eyes. Uncle said there he stood as a foot soldier, all his gear, a Thompson submachine gun, and ammo for it. No clue what to do with these two guns. One was a custom built German 7mm Mauser Sporter, the other a Drilling, 16 gauge over a 7mm.

    Guy in a truck came by, pulled up and told him if he would write his name and address down, he would see they got to my uncle. Uncle didn't have much choice, so he handed over the guns and a piece of paper with the info. Said he had been home about 6 months when one day a big box arrived. In it was the Mauser and the Drilling. Both are in my vault!

    Ken-thanks man. I had a life experience last weekend and it’s sweet hearing other people’s. Firearms are too polarizing these days. There’s a heritage to certain guns that I wish more people would take a second and think about. I know there’s another conversation about other people and other guns and the problems but this is a stoke thread after all.

    As I was going through some rifles tonight writing down serial numbers and basically becoming familiar with operation, I couldn’t help but picture my grandpa and great grandpa carrying them through the woods, shoving pheasants in their vests, roping elk on horses, my grandpa riding his bike to a local pond as a teenager with a single shot 20 gauge around 1940 and riding home with a couple ducks...etc.

    Yeah, my uncle was a month or so away from dying from lung cancer. I would have enjoyed hearing more stories, but it was not to be.

    He had a little Mauser 1910 pistol. I asked where he got it. He dropped his head and said there was a German officer that just didn't need it anymore. I got a bunch of daggers and swords, flags, beer steins, and other items he brought back, but no stories. Not a subject he would discuss.

    I need to catalog all my stuff too. Come to the house when you get yours done!!!

    Great story Ken.

    I got my Grandads RAF log book when he died.

    My uncle has a samurai sword brought back from the pacific by my great Uncle. Still has blood on it. Not sure whose? But I’ll take it.

    Put about 1k rounds through it, and it ate everything I gave it. I have the 20 and 30 rd mags, they all fed perfectly. I swapped out the foregrip for vertical version and put a Romeo red dot on it. Fun to plink with, not sure it will be my new truck gun replacing the AK under-folder. Very accurate with ~ 3" groups at 50 yards with iron sights.
    The only negative is the safety placement that rubs on your trigger finger, so I'm replacing that with an upgraded version. Easy disassembly and cleaning. I highly recommend a pcc for all non-restricted shooters.

    I've been looking for one of these for 8 months. I caught them in stock three times at the right distributor, but the local gun shop never could put two and two together and order me one in time. This one came from gunbroker. Due to that and a whole bunch of other bullshit with my last few transfers, I'm looking for a new shop in/around Jackson. Any suggestions?

    Stock mags are 33 rounds of quad-stack goodness in 22LR. They apparently have extensions that'll make them 50 rounds.

    Time to go old school.

    1957 Win Model 12 Heavy Duck with a factory installed vent rib which to my understanding is there are not many around, especially in this condition. A lot of Simmons after market installs.

    Next up...Colt Army Special 38 that my great grandpa carried.

    Took the Model 75 out. It's a shooter. First shot to see where it would hit and then touching 3 shot groups at 25 yds for the next 50 or so rounds. It was a 25 yd range so need to see what it can do outside soon. Really liked the trigger and fun to shoot an old peep.
