So I bought some property out there, 2 and a half acres adjecent to my father in laws. Together, that makes about 10 all total.
I made a little back stop in a natural wash and he fired my old 2nd Gen G17. He loved it. Says its probably too late for him to get used to not having a 'safety' on the gun but he agreed that for defense it pretty much beats out anything else he's ever shot.
We were using some American Arms 115gr. ball, so the recoil was very soft. Once I loaded her up with 124gr.+P GDHP and fired a few rounds he was impressed and wanted to shoot her again.
We had a great time. Next time we go out I'll try and get some pics.
Funny thing is, he really didn't like my 26, says the grip just wasn't right. But he loved the 17. He carries a Taurus snubby. Go figure.
He's so old school he won't carry a round in the chamber over the hammer. I explained the transfer bar won't allow the gun to go off without pulling the trigger...but he's set in his ways I guess.
All in all it was a great trip and I can't wait to go back in March.
