    Well we went to the gun show yesterday to buy some reloading supplies and I ending up buying a Rock Island Compact tactical for 450 bones.

    Stopped at the range on the way home and wiped off the excess oil (boy they sure use alot) and fired away.

    Went thru about 150 founds and no problems. Will try to go thru about 50-100 more rounds and then try hollow points.

    All in all a very good day at the show and range

    Here is the latest family portrait
