    Since that it's American Independence Day, I've decided to shoot 100% American guns and calibers. Specifically, the wheelguns (Colt, SW and Ruger) in .38 Special, .357 Magnum and .44 Magnum.

    I toyed with the idea of shooting a USA made Beretta 92FS, but then it is of Italian design and the 9mm is a Euro caliber. By golly, it's American Independence Day and not International Day, so I think that I will stick with the wheelguns.

    I'm shooting fireworks. If I get drunk enough, I may go shoot my 92fs in the air.

    No fireworks here! they are illegal anyway in my city, the police usually look the other way around here(especially the officer across the street). But since the state is on fire there is supposed to be no tolerance. So, maybe the remington 870 or the stag arms.

    US Rifle Cal 30. M1. Springfield Armory. S/N 58347xx Circa 1955. There isn't anything poser about this Garand. If there was I wouldn't own it.

    I got one of the M&P Shields from a member here the other day. I might go shoot it some more. Also, picked up a 92fs. Hmmm, maybe I better go load up some more 9mm ammo
