Well, after couple of months of missing my supposedly bi-weekly visit to the range, I finally made it today. Ang daming dahilan eh Anyway, for BOGS in the neighborhood of Okland, San Fran, San Jose, Milpitas or Fremont, theres an ongoing sale of S&W at TargetMaster. Check more details here Also on discounted price are Kimbers, SAs XD (in .45 GAP and ACP) and of course, Glocks. Its an impresive display of FAs and for $5, u can have to shoot any of them. vega, I remember you have an XD. What model is it and whats your say on its overall performance. I heard its the 2006 Handgun of the Year! How much did u get it? Wow, 13+1 .45 ACP? BTW, is your local Walmart still carry ammos? I checked 2 branches here, wala na sila. It this nationwide? Observations: While I was there, a dad and his 2 kids occupied the next booth and I thought its kinda too early to start them on the sport. Or is it? They must have been 5 and 4 yrs old. From the sound of it, the gun is either a .38 special or .357. Any BOGs started their kids that early? I have to stay away from a bunch of tourist teen boys blasting those $5 rentals S&W; newbies mga to, just the way they hold their pistols. Ang dating sa akin ng mga biruan at tawanan nila: on the verge of horseplay. Bakit kaya pinapayagan ng mgmt sa firing lane ang mga ganon? Other patrons must have the same feeling, nobody wants to mixed up with them on the same bay. Got a sore index finger of my supporting hand. Why do Kimbers (Tactical II family) get serrations on the bottom of the trigger guard? Ano silbi nun?. BTW, how much is a Kimber Tactical back home? Anybody wants the 2006 Smith & Wesson catalog? Besides all the guns of S&W, andun sina Koenig and Miculek. I can mail it to Phil for free. Just PM me.
