Blackhawk at the Range

Got the Ruger Blackhack out to the range for shits and grins – It was GOOD and a life lesson at the same time . . .

The two on the right were shot with Fiocchi 158 grain 357 Jacketed Hollow Points – rated at 1220 fps – what passes nowadays for 357 mag ammo – real smooth out of 2 lbs of Ruger – The ones on the left? PPU 158 grain 357 Jacketed Hollow Points – rated at 1608 fps – Still manageable but quite a bit more recoil – I would go so far as to say “vigorous” – and it was a great time right up to where reality kicked in and presented a life lesson at no extra charge . . .

Warning : Old Fart Life Lesson Incoming!!

I am going to have to get out the sight paint and add a bit of bright color color to the front sight – black rear sight / black front sight / black aiming point – couldn’t see a fucking thing! – my old Mark One eyeballs ain’t what they used to was – Shit AND old age happens – and the old age part happens only if you live long enough – LOL!

These were at 10 yards – thought about doing some 25 yard stuff – maybe after the sight paint . . .

And having the 9mm cylinder along for the ride I shot a few out of it as well – like shooting a 22 rimfire – a real hoot . . .

Fresh out of the “bath”

All rubbed down with CLP – a little story read – and tucked into bed – it’s a tough life . . .

Picked this up at the store side while I was at the range ( the store is on line as well ) – pretty neat stuff . . .

Each one fits a variety of firearms and they have about a zillion different models – and they work – they hold the pistol securely – and cover the trigger – and they are inexpensive . . .

Springfield XDS 9mm . . .

CZ 2075 D Rami . . .

I wonder if either of those sub compact 9mm pistols are going to show up in a Sig P232 vs post in the next week or so?? Hmmmm . . . Bruce – you are teasing again! – And your point? – LMAO!

Folks – all I can tell you is trot your collective happy asses to the range – practice – have a little fun – take a class – almost every range offers classes to improve your skill set – but if nothing else go and have some fun – it truly pisses some ( using the term loosely ) people off if they see YOU enjoying yourself . . .

Support your local range . . .

Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap!!
