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? :-)

Tomorrow I have items for flightmare, skullcap, and bitterclinger.
Plus an auction site offering Civil War swords, unique guns, and a WWII army tank.

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?

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

I will be there tomorrow.

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

I'll be there.

I'd like to extend an invitation to other Dallas/North Texas folks to join us.

I'm looking at you chasfm11, greybeard, paladin, 03lightningrocks, and other local guys or gals.

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.

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

Strogg: Ditch your standard attire.....rock that shoulder rig tomorrow!

I'm going to be there looking forward to lots of stories from our NRA Meeting visit.

Everyone should view the video of Diamond and Silk defending the 2A & the NRA.
They are 2 strong black conservative women who are some of our black members,
who refute the anti position that the NRA is racist.

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

I will be there also, ready to discuss the Houston murder on
Facebook, and some Michigan school carry litigation, as well
as some snubbies I almost bought at last week's Lewisville Gun
show.

Film at 11.

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

Today I spent a couple of hours window shopping at the Lewisville Gun Show.
I was wearing my custom-made nametag with my forum initials, full screen name,
and forum URL, with the idea that someone from the forum would say hi.

Well, greybeard, who had a table at the show, spoke up when he saw my nametag
and we visited for a while. He's a Denton area guy.

I told him we were meeting next Saturday, but his next Saturday will be full
of work killing a large nest of rattlesnakes under his country property.
Some combination of chemicals, vehicle exhaust gas, and snakeshot should
hopefully eliminate his problems. Sheesh.

See everyone next Saturday. Be there or be square. :-)

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

I will not be there on 3.10.

Church is having a work day from 800-noon, and I'm a trustee,
so my attendance is necessary.

Happy trails.
