    Went to a public range with a friend. He was talking to a guy that was shooting. The guy is telling my friend that he shoots a lot of competition with his dad. Every time he shoots the slide locks. After three mags I finally went up and asked him if he knew he was shooting 9mm in a 40. He said yes he does it all the time.

    This was in reference to a box of 9mm 115gr target loads for a CCDW class.

    A bass pro shop gun counter guy told me that Daniel defense was coming out with a new lightweight lower & upper made out of aluminum! They are all made out of steel now.

    Oddly enough, she was. I'm not sure that she was the one that created the stereotype but she sure didn't help dispel it.

    Another one on her was when the Branch Davidians were raided and subsequently opened fire on the AFT, FBI and National Guard back in '93 someone said "I bet they are going to send Texas Rangers down there." Her reply was, "What are they going to do, throw baseballs at them?"

    Never a dull moment with her around.

    Me: 10 yards down range setting pins up on table
    Idiot: Arrives while I'm down range, takes hand gun out of range bag, points at ground over bench and starts to rack slide to clear gun.
    Me: Moving my butt out of the way and screaming what the f*&^ are you doing.
    Idiot: Blank look on face, what?
    Me: Pointing to the 4'x4' Range Rules Sign 10' away and referring to #1 "Do not handle firearms, at all, when people are down range"
    Idiot: Oh, I though that was only if they were loaded.
    Me: Are you a new member?
    Idiot: No
    Me: Leaving

    Paraphrasing...

    Me: how's that old trap door running?
    Him: just ok. I've been shooting 400 grainers, but I'm going to try 505s to see how they'll do. Of course, I'll need to add more powder because of the extra weight.

    Me: the action on your 7 mag needs to be open when it is a cease fire and people are down range.

    Him: it's not loaded.

    Me: politely explained that doesn't matter, implying "next time."

    Him: shrugs his shoulders and moves forward of the yellow line and opens the bolt, and doing so ejected the chambered round. The safety was also in the hot position. People downrange.

    That got the attention of the RO!

    I think we need to work on this 355-115. Should be a very good North American big game round.

    Knew a guy who insisted the powder charge for the 44 Auto Mag was 240 grs of black powder. He read it in a soft covered novel somewhere.
