    Ya I bought a second one..I thought a 22lr pistol would be a fun and cheap and extend time at the range. Got the GSG 1911. Sounds pretty reilabe. Can't wait to git it in my mitts.
    Mmmmm, gunpowdery smell.

    I got a Glock 17, gen 4 too.

    Next gun? Get a .22lr semi pistol, sounds like a step backwards but you'll love it for training. You can blast 500+ rounds for an average of $25, to shoot that round count in 9mm will cost at least $150+

    I bought a Ruger 22/45, very, very, reliable, and lots of cheap fun to shoot.

    I got my gun last week and in the case I found 2 shell casings.

    I'm assuming these are the recommended ammunition?

    I think those are the casings from the factory test fire.

    And then you get to the painful decision of which handgun to bring to the range.
    Revolvers RULE; remember that next time you BEND over to pick up brass OR ejected brass pings off the precision gear.
    Looking for a car pool buddy for weekly weekday trips from Burnaby to POCO. Better yet I'll drive weekly and you take me hunting.
