Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

I will be there this Saturday. I am bringing a walkie talkie size scanner, but I misplaced the book with the frequencies in it, plus I'm baffled by all the buttons on this puppy.

Flightmare, or someone: could you bring any hardcopy of local police frequencies, and possibly get me set up to listen to police calls?

I'd like to get DPS, Plano PD, Frisco PD, Lewisville PD, Collin County & Denton County Sheriffs Depts.

As a plan B, if anyone knows any police scanner apps I could put on my Android phone, that would be good too.

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

bitterclinger: I'll have to find out how many sisters she has. :-)

I hope she's a shooter, so we can do Eagle Gun Range, Lewisville, on Tuesdays, which is Ladies Day.

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

800 AM - 1130 AM: I will be at Frisco Rudy's, then must leave, although many times we jabber until much later.
Grundy1133: We all look forward to meeting you. Just look for the table with a bunch of open carriers.

Noontime: My lunch date, also in Frisco, with a new redheaded gal. You guys will have to carry on without me after 1130! :-)

I guess I answered my own question. Showed up with my step son and we both had a good time. On the way home he asked how "old people" knew so much about cars LOL. Anyway thanks for the good time, good conversation and the challenge coin Flightmare. Can't wait for next year. Everyone that came I hope ya'll made it home safe.
kayt00: I really had a good laugh at your stepson's comment! I was the one who had quite a long discussion with your stepson about all manner of information regarding muscle cars, movie cars, and lots of other vehicle talk. The reason that I know lots about cars is that I have been on this earth 5.3 decades longer than his 13 year old self, and when you've loved cars for years, the information piles up.

I didn't want him to sit there bored while the adults talked gun stuff for hours, so I moved to his end of the table, and found him to be quite talkative since cars were his thing. Bring him next time too, and I may be successful in getting him to remember that there are no 1966 Camaro's! :-)

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

bitterclinger:

Please bring your XDM 5.25" 9MM next time. I expect that one is a tack driver with minimal recoil.
I'd also like to try out your Glock 43. I promise not to shoot myself in the leg with it. :-)

You asked how long the barrel of my Ruger SR9C was. Ruger's site said 3.40", although I have generally seen it described in gun ads as 3.50".
I like my XDS 3.3" because it's a .45, but I am much more accurate with the Ruger, plus when I carry the SR9C as my primary it's 17 + 1 rounds instead of 5 + 1 or 7 + 1 (XDS45).

By the way, speaking of small differences, I find it kind of amusing that you can get Smith's now with either 3.6" or 4.0" barrels in the same model.
Smith and Wesson must have received a lot of screaming requests from the potential buyers for the one that is .4" shorter. :-)

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

Today there were just 3 of us in attendance: bitterclinger, strogg, and myself. We just stayed at Rudy's Frisco for an hour, then headed down to DFW Gun Range on Mockingbird in Dallas.

We were there over 2 hours and shot all of our own and the others' guns. strogg's .50 caliber revolver requires thick gloves to shoot without bloodying your hands......I shot 1 terrifying round out of it, the recoil was a killer. If the range wants the bullet, they may have to pry it out of the ceiling, ha ha.

bitterclinger and I were quite fond of strogg's SR1911 in .45. Very easy to be accurate with that one.

strogg was a surprisingly good shot with my LCR .38.....the kid's got natural talent!! For compact .45's he preferred my XDS .45 to a SW Shield .45 that he had shot previously to today's session.

Other firearms we had: 2 FNX .45's, Rossi R971 (.357 revolver, 4" barrel), Ruger SR9C, XDS .45 3.3, FN 5.7 pistol, FN PS90 in 5.7.

Then bitterclinger knew a great local diner near the Dallas Market Center, where we had lunch, and finished off a good lead slinging day.

Next Saturday bitterclinger is taking a handgun course and I will be on vacation, so strogg will have to represent the Frisco boys at the Arlington breakfast.

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

Well, let's all bring 1 or several of our heaters, and enough ammo to last for a while.

I look forward to shooting something different (other people's guns) and providing mine as well to others.

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

We always spend a lot of time TALKING about guns.

This Saturday, let's spend 800-1000 AM at Rudy's, then head down to Mockingbird to SHOOT our guns.

Or if bitterclinger knows a food place near his range that doesn't mind us lingering for 2 hours, that would save the Frisco to Dallas time.

Deal?

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

bitterclinger, flightmare, strogg, c-dub, skullcop, paladin, AndyC, and any others who are planning on getting together this Saturday:

I checked the weather for this Saturday, 10.13.18, and a high probability of thunderstorms would not be conducive to shooting at Elm Fork. That's an outdoor range, right?

So, let's just stick to Rudy's where we will be warm and dry while we fix the problems of the world, eh? :-)

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

Lena: You mentioned your geography would make the round trip to Frisco about 3 hours.
I just mapquested Cash, TX, as noted in your personal information.

Cash, TX is 264 miles from Frisco, in a northeasterly direction, requiring over 4 hours each way.
Cash appears to be up Wichita Falls/Amarillo way.

Has your residence moved more to East Texas?

Let's discuss the Heizer pocket .45 and the LEO ND at the funeral
for an assassinated Weymouth, Mass. LEO.

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

I will see everyone on Saturday, 8.11.18.

soldev: I'm not sure if any of us regular Frisco breakfast guys have met you.
I know I haven't....so looking forward to you joining us.

I saw a great handgun torture test recently. A guy bought a Highpoint C9 pistol and
really beat it up, dragged it behind his F-150, threw it in a pond, put pond scum in the
gun, and even fired a <.40?> at it, hitting it right in the ejection port.

Believe it or not, this gun fired all the time, even after it was shot.
They aren't pretty, but this one took a licking and kept on ticking.

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

Grundy1133:
I just mapquested "Gainesville, TX" to the Rudy's we frequent at
9828 Dallas Parkway, Frisco, TX 75034.

1st route provided by the site: 63 minutes, 53 miles.
2nd route: also 63 minutes, but only 51 miles.

If you are up to it, we in the Frisco breakfast would like to meet you.
Live a little with a tiny road trip to somewhere you may not have been before.
We cover a lot more gun talk over breakfast than we can ever spend here typing!

I will be there this coming Saturday.... I have a little something for bitterclinger.
