So I started my day off with a visit to the physical therapist ("Ve haf vays of making you talk!") and after that, I hit the range for some long-overdue shooting.
Today's goal was to test a new 9mm load that I put together using IMR PB powder and 124gr. FMJ bullets. The test weapon for this was an old friend from down south, my Beretta 92F.
This one may be a bit shopworn, but it still shoots good, and it's tough enough that I trust it as a test platform for new loads. But no worries with this batch--they shot as good as anything I've ever made in 9mm so I'm happy with the recipe.
Then it was time to bring out the AR for a zeroing of it's new optic.
And on my way home, I stopped at the 7-11 and I was pleased to see two guys walk in open-carrying. We met each other at the door, me going out and them going in, and everybody smiled as we checked out each other's hardware--my Beretta in my holster and a S&W M&P and a Glock on their hips. And did anyone at the 7-11 have a problem with this? Nope; they're used to it. It's good to be in a pro-gun place.
