Tap, Tap, Tap. Is this thing still on?




















I'm still here!  It's been sorta interesting here this summer.  I'll try to at least post something once a week again.  

The test between the first gen Colt Mustang and the new XSP is barely underway. I'll post something about that shortly.

NRA Annual Meeting

So on May 19th, I left for the NRAAM in Louisville KY. Met up with some friends for Dinner upon arrival and showed up the next day at the Media desk to check in. 

"Blogger huh?" They pull this blog up and much hilarity ensued. 

Behind the media desk shot as this Blog is pulled up =) 

















80 Thousand + attendees. About the same as Indy, but I found the venue not as crowded. May have just been me though. 


 






















Attend an Instructor update. Although I can understand instructor push back to the new blended learning, I also understand instructor's negative feedback. I have no solution to this change in format except to say it appears the NRA is protecting itself on professional and legal levels with the blended online and instructor approach. 

 

















Over 700 instructors attended this seminar. 


So, off to a booth or two:

























Convention staff all said the same thing. Attendees were polite and well mannered. LPD Officers actually thanked me for being there. That seems to be a standard of these annual meetings.

See you in Atlanta in 2017!

NRAAM

NRA instructor meeting! 700 or so of us! 

Sunday, May 1, 2016

So it begins....

The Colt XSP .380 on the line today for a quick 100 rounds of generic Winchester white box 95 grain ammo. As usual, the safety is well, a Colt one. 

No faults noted today. It is a really soft shooting pistol compared to some pocket .380's around here. 

Next week the original Mustang, same ammo and perhaps some chrono work. 

I apologize in advance if this post looks wonky, trying to figure out the iThingy blogger app before the NRAAM!

Somebody Caught Me!

Doing two things. Working and having fun at the same time! Bad that they got my bald spot but I'll take it! Good going young lady!

So.....

After being motivated by a noted gun blogger and conversations tonight I have been motivated to do the 2000 round test that Tam has been doing. 

I'm doing it with a twist though. A brand new Colt Mustang XSP with less than 100 rounds through it head to head with a first generation Colt Mustang (1987 or so) with less than 500 rounds through it. 

I'll field strip both, clean and lube them. Lets see how this goes! 

Dang it Tam! Like I need another hobby right now! Like figuring this camera out =)

I Need to Get Organized!

Wandering around after a competition shoot and needed some new magazines. Was going to order some then in a small cabinet found this stuff. 

I really need some help to inventory this place!
