    My brother lives in Woodbridge. I'll be visiting him in June. Maybe we can meet up at Shooter's Paradise, when I get there. :)

    No, but he does like to shoot for recreation (paper punching and tin cans). He's the one who taught me how to shoot (air rifle), some 27 years ago. :)
    Do you shoot USPSA or IDPA? I shoot mainly USPSA.
    I'll PM you when I get there. We'll shoot some matches together. :)

    Longbow,

    I have never shot for competition...although I would like to try. I mainly shoot handguns...I have a Taurus 357, Glock 19, Colt 45...I would like to get a Ruger 357 Single Action but that won't be for awhile. My wife is already giving me dirty looks about my "baril-barilan"....I live on Oakwood Drive in Woodbridge. Where does your brother live? Maybe we have seen each other in church or at the only Filipino store in Woodbridge.

    I have the Taurus model 65, 4 inch. I bought it used and had to send it back to Taurus for some trigger work. All in all, it is an accurate gun, specially with Sierra 170gr hollow points. I find that my own reloads are more accurate than factory ammo. The 65 shoots better with heavier bullets, at least the one I have does. I have shot around 100 rounds of realoaded ammo and about 250 of Winchester 110gr. I experienced lockup on the Winchesters about 5 times. I am new to reloading but from all the research I have done, reloaded ammo can be more accurate than the factory stuff as proven by my Taurus 65. If you're thinking about getting one, they are quite cheap. I bought mine at a pawnshop for $225...brand new is around $350.

    CDNN have the Tracker model for $299.00, too bad they don't ship to Cali.

    I have a M827 back in the Phil. Too bad I can't bring it over here.

    California is terrible when it comes to gunownership. I saw that same Taurus from CDNN..it seems like a good deal but I have seen it go for $230 here in VA. Taurus makes good guns but I don't think I will be getting another one. I just prefer Ruger Revolvers. What kind of guns do you have? Go to Gunsamerica.com---they have a lot of good deals there.
