Elm Fork is likely underwater already after today.

I do have a membership at DFW Gun Range (indoor) on Mockingbird if anyone wants to go either after Rudy's or Sunday morning.

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?

That sounds like fun. I'll be bringing my big boy wheel gun if anyone wants to have their hands ripped off. :evil2:

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.

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.

Yesterday was fun. As SIA said, his XDS 45 was surprisingly easy to manage. There was a lot of recoil, but the grip was so good that muzzle flip was very minimal. I just wouldn't shoot more than a few mags at a time, though.

Thanks for coming out SIA and Bitter Clinger. And extra thanks for Bitter Clinger for his range membership. It was a nice quiet day over there.

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. :-)
