    Just got back from BDC in Shawnee. Had a ball. Planned on breaking out a lot of guns and having fun. Started early packing up what I needed. Filled up my Prius (SHUT UP! IT HAS TONS OF ROOM), made sure I brought a butt load of ammo and everything was good.
    Halfway to Shawnee (hour and twenty minute drive) my wife calls and ask why I have 3 pistols on the kitchen counter top. CRAP!
    Not that I didn't have plenty of guns but I left the Walther Creed that I haven't shot in some time and my two rugers. CRAP AGAIN!
    Oh well had plenty of firepower and plenty of ammo.
    First pic is the Lone Wolf G9 9mm carbine (bought it from the gun shop that was robbed in McAlester). Has a Bushnell red dot that I just love (not expensive and never loses zero). Shooting at 25 yards and had to make one adjustment, as it was sighted at 50 yds. At the end, it was hole in hole, as you can see, in the lower left target (nearest carbine). Can go through a lot of ammo using the 30 round glock mags.
    Next picture is the CZ PO7 at 12 yards and 50 rounds.
    Pic 3 is the Kim 45 at 12 yards and 100 rounds.
    Pic 4 is my Springfield ROO at 12 yards and 100 rds.
    I had a blast. Shot about 800 rounds. Would have shot more but wife is bringing home Italian food from Pete's in Krebs.
    You all will be happy to know that this will be my last range post for a bit. Not by choice, but by surgery....Ha!

    Worse than that, my battery on my vortex red dot (on my glock 19 Gen 4) was dead.

    Think that's bad? I've gone all the way to USSA only to realize the ammo I just "knew" was in my range bag wasn't there. Time to go home...grrrr...

    Good luck with your surgery and Godspeed.

    I've been trying to shoot as much as I can. I posted some pics at BDC a couple of days ago, and what I didn't say was....I have about 2,000 rounds of 45 at my house. When I got to BDC, I forgot all of it. Bought the range ammo and all they had was the expensive stuff left. It was on sale and great ammo, but I had 2,000 rounds at home.

    I get it. I'm fortunate that USSA is on my way home from work. BUT, if I forget, I'm not going home and driving back!

    Best of luck with the sawbones, my friend! What part are they breaking and/or fixing?

    Left shoulder. Reconstruction. Reattaching torn ligament to humerus, rotator cup cleanup and cutting off a lot of bone spurs and bone. FUN! Ha!
    Second surgery on same shoulder. Last time was decades ago. This one will be a longer recovery.
    But it is what it is.
    thanks for the concern.
