That looks like a ton of fun. I would love to do that, or something like it. Unfortunately, "poodle shooters" aren't allowed at my local military rifle matches. :(

How was the wind?




Not too bad, hit about 8-10mph in my section one afternoon but 1 click fixed it. The 4 ceasefires due to boats in the impact area was a bigger annoyance. I'm already thinking about an A2 build of my own....

What match is your 2nd pic from?

That's about as calm as it gets up there. The ceasefires are par for the course too, usually there's an eagle around causing them as well.

That second pic is the combat pistol EIC. The National Guard has its own combat matches which are all I've ever shot. Our rifle EIC used to be irons only but issue optics are authorized now so we all shoot ACOGs.

Is that Perry? I thought they moved the national matches somewhere else.

...I just realized that it's been 31 years since I went there. Getting old is weird.

Got my sorta-scout rifle set up right where I want it to be. The sling works perfectly and the 5-round magazines look a lot better imo. If I can shave exactly one pound it would meet all the criteria for a Cooper-Approved™ Scout Rifle. The aluminum bedding and heavier barrel profile add some weight that's not really needed for a general purpose field rifle, but it's definitely nice for when I'm putting a lot of rounds downrange during a session. If I ever shoot it out maybe I'll go with a thinner profile fluted dealie that's a little longer to make hitting 2700fps easier.

Today's gun show haul



The red army standard was still less than $10 a box. Guy selling simply gave no shits and didn't want to pack it back at the end of the day. The hollow points were $11.

Other tables? $20-30 a box. Even someone selling individual rounds for $2 out of a bucket. (no photography allowed or of course I'd have taken a pic)

The HTP box was literally the only 38 special defensive ammo in the whole show. $75. Saw two boxes of ancient wadcutters as well but they vanished before I could double back.

From yesterday's carbine class:

The Tailhook Mod 2's durability is sub-optimal when trying to mortar out a stuck round.

Not mine, BTW.

If I get off my rear end and SBR my evo I'm gonna send my non-poo poo Tailhook to him. Need to make it out there again, been half a decade since I've seen him in person.

I already have a rough arrangement to send him my Tailhook Mod 1 as I'm seriously thinking of just forgoing pistol braces & going straight to SBR's.

Now I wonder if we've met if you know this person.



Tax:

Right now I got my Tailhook Mod 1 (A) that I want to attach to my STKBR (B). I reached out to my friends that do 3d printing if that is a part that can be modeled & produced.

Saw a movie from NZ called "Coming Home in the Dark" recently. Good film, but the antagonists used a cut down SMLE which looked pretty handy.

VTAC drills are fun, until you realize you put so much poo poo in your chest rig/plate carrier that you can't get low enough to shoot through the bottom portions.
