    I thought I'd pass the info on for those that may be interested.
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    Strange people in Louisa.

    In Hampton Roads we use a bowling ball to knock down the pins.

    It does sound like fun.

    I can agree with that.

    The conventional way is fun when you've consumed large amounts of adult beverage, haven't had any since 1989.

    This is an understatement.


    Haven't been to this shoot but have shot many pin matches, the folks holding the match sounded real nice over the phone.

    It was a lot more fun back before they had automatic pin setters.

    It appeared that everyone enjoyed themselves, about 50 shooters ranging in age from 9 -70+, competitive but friendly folks.

    Pourshot showed up and tried to be Wyatt Earp with that 10 1/2" bbl SA, I was waiting for him touch off the BFR in (45-70) but that never happened.

    I used the shoot to test my lastest additions another Ruger LCR in .357 (that makes three) and another Coonan Model B (that makes five Coonan's).
    Like my other LCR's (the other two belong to my other half) this one prefers full house .357mag, .38spl (to include +P) shoot a little low even at 15yrds.
    This Coonan needs a little more sorting out, unlike my others this one was bought used and the previous owner changed some parts.

    The company Pres. sent me a personal email telling me to send them the pistol and they would get it sorted out for me, I had emailed an order for parts.


    Big difference from another company that will remain nameless, I personal know the VP for 20+yrs and a request for parts source has gone ignored for 2+yrs.
