    The M2 I am talking about is either 220 lumens or 480 ....IIRC. The zoom lens allows you to throw much further than the lumens alone would suggest.

    For example. ..the 220 lumen 18650 M2 had better throw at extreme distance (several hundred yards) than an Fenix TK40 with almost 3 times the output.

    Bought the following at wally world a few minutes ago: 2 100 rnd bulk packs of Winchester 12 ga. 2 3/4 71/2 shot also 2 for my 20 ga. , bought 10 boxes of Remington 308 150 grain for just over 21.00 per box, not bad at todays prices. ALso picked up 2 boxes of 38 special and one box of 25 auto. They have a three box limit on the pistol ammo but not on the rifle or shotgun ammo. Go figure. I'm buying a few boxes of ammo that I don't have a gun for but may be handy for bartering purposes down the road.

    Checked MRE inventory...looks like I'll be eating MREs.

    Inspection dates in 2010. Temp wax ring looks pristine. They should still be good to eat, but I think it's time to replenish. Funny how you stick this stuff aside and forget about it. Better to know now. Just didn't plan on spending this money.

    P.S. MREs are not the primary source of food. Just have cases so we have quick meals for some period...and they work well for bugging out (which I hope to never do).

    A couple of LANCER L5AVM 20 rd magazines in translucent

    MAGPUL MBUS FRNT FLIP SGHT GEN 2 BLK


    Will have to either modify the sights and/or make a dope chart for the super/subs with the 300 BLK

    Congratulations! that will be a nice start for the weekend.
    Hey LongGun1, I always enjoy reading the reasoning behind your choices, so why the CZ75 p07 platform?....vs a striker platform?

    Well.....while I have striker fired pistols such as Glocks..

    ..the CZ75 P07 Duty makes for a better suppressor host for my needs.

    It can be configured Cocked & Locked...like a 1911...

    ..or as a Decocker......like a SIG.


    Internal slide rails (like the SIG Neuhausen P210) for accuracy..

    ..ergonomics & Omega Trigger are superb. ..IME.

    The stock spring rates run better with a wider range of suppressor/load combinations..

    ..and the 1st pistol was "suppressor ready" (extended threaded barrel & adjustable suppressor sights).

    The 1st CZ was also less than $500 to me. .

    ..as is this one...

    ..about 1/2 the price of other suppressor ready pistols I have shot.


    I really like the Commander hammer in a pistol..

    ..allows for more control than an internal striker..

    ..the crispness of the single action sear release...

    ..& the option of double action can also be used to restrike hard primers found in some types of submachine gun ammo that will not ignite the 1st time.


    I am more accurate with the CZ vs a Glock 19..

    ..the low profile internal rail slide allows for easier pointing, less flip & faster recovery...IME


    Plus....I really like CZ pistols! :supergrin:

    Bad week for me. Broke my LCP. Strangely enough, the head came off the slide retention pin, and the spring is holding what's left in place. Now I can't break it down.

    Sending it in for warranty repair.

    These cheap little pistols are just that...cheap little pistols.

    Same as the P3AT.

    Never had a P3AT, but had their P32 and ruger's LCP. The lcp is substantially ahead of the P32 as far as quality & dependability.

    Actually still have the P32 but don't use it for anything other than occupying space in the safe. Some guys have had good luck with theirs, and my experience is admittedly only a sample base of one unit; but mine was pretty poor.

    Got the pin out. Found a video online, and ordered a replacement pin from midway for $2.

    Not the best gun in the world, but hit hides nicely.

    I concealed carried a laser-sighted P32 for years..

    ..no problems other than the lubricaton & clothes lint combining to form a thick sludge..

    ..solved with the lubeless nickle boron coating of the newer ccw..

    ..a DB380EXO.

    Wife had my P32 now...

    ..eldest also has one since before Katrina.


    But none of the ultralightweights are something I would want to shoot either frequently and/or heavy amounts...

    ..as when I do....basically....occasional practice only.


    YMMV

    But none of the ultralightweights are a gun I consider so durable to want to shoot either frequently and/or heavy amounts...

    ..as when I do....basically it is occasional practice for function & proficiency only.

    Improving my tool skills. Been working with a belt sander. Recovered a totally beatup machete that had had chunks taken out of the blade. Will be making a hand sanding block in the next day or two and some belt sander belts. The youtube videos have been very helpful.

    Upgraded the auto tire repair goodies and repaired a compressor that otherwise would have been thrown away. Again, the youtube videos have been very helpful.

    The fruit trees are now bearing (but no shtf has happened). A few hundred pounds of guavas being harvested and distributed to neighbors, friends, relatives and the car repair staff. Guavas are fruits that don't travel so you won't find them in the stores in the US.

    "But none of the ultralightweights are a gun I consider so durable to want to shoot either frequently and/or heavy amounts..."

    Agree with that. My LCP is strictly for concealed carry, I practice enough to be good, but when I want to have fun I take my Beretta PX4 to the range.

    Guavas. There are many kinds of guava trees in the world, some named after the flavors. The pineapple guava is now about through. The strawberry one is in full production. The apple guava is next. The pineapple and strawberry fruits are about the sizes of ping pong balls. The apple ones will be the size of apples. The flavors are as described.

    The most interesting tree in the yard is the cherimoya. Sells for $7.99 a pound at Ralph's grocery chain. The skin of the fruit can cause paralysis. The black seeds are used in insecticide. The flesh of the fruit is creamy and described by some as a cross between peach and a number of other flavors. Also called the most delicious fruit in the world. The pulp is put on ice cream.

    With guava, the fruit is eaten whole. It can be used stewed on pancakes or used as a flavoring on icecream.
