One of the high points of this past week-end's trip was an outing to the range with Aaron and da Spud. Aron and I both brought a number of weapons out. Here's my batch o' pistols:
Aaron brought a few, too. We were well-armed and quite safe. Aaron's star of the show was this beautiful 1911A1 which he'd sent out for the full Robar treatment.
Gratuitous .41 magnum gun porn.
The Spud, with the Beretta 92, as he recited the four rules of gun safety prior to being given any ammunition.
And here he is with Aaron's Glock.
Off to a slow start, kinda forgetting that sight-alignment/smooth trigger pull concept at first, but he got it back soon enough.
I got a chance to give Hornady's Critical Defense rounds in .380 a bit of a test on steel. Typical .380 FMJ or hollow points generally won't knock steel plates over very well, but those 90-grain Critical Defense rounds smacked them down like I was using a 9mm. I was impressed, and glad to see that they fed 100% reliably through the Walther. I like them very much, indeed.
When we hit the rifle line, I broke out the Ruger brothers: Old faithful 10-22 with newly added peep sights(bottom), and a stock but well-worn Mini-14GB
I also had one of my AR-15 carbines, shown here next to the Mini.
But he redeemed himself by shooting the rifles and shooting them well.
All in all, it was a good day with a good friend and a good kid. And lots of good guns. What more could you want?
