Susan and JRoger, our good friends from Florida, sent this neat T-shirt to Ms. Pat the other day and she wore it to the Ladies Pistol Shoot yesterday. Needless to say, she LOVES the shirt and I can assure you it speaks the truth! Above is a picture of her and Nancy showing off their shirts……
Here is a picture of Ms. Pat during one of her Tactical shoots from behind cover . She has to be careful not to expose herself to the bad guys because those guys in brown might shoot back. Wonderful training, as Nancy keeps score and Caryl works the timer and is the RSO (Range Safety Officer). This Ladies shooting for defense is really getting popular. Six new ladies showed up yesterday to begin their training.
Now today I have to get to work. Ms. Pat shot over 150 rounds yesterday and I shot over 100 at the Saturday tactical match. Plus, we have another organized practice shoot tomorrow and a steel shoot Saturday. That will take another 100 rounds each, at least, for each shoot. A real shortage of reloading components is beginning to develop. We are all needing primers and most all dealers are “out of stock”. Those that do have some are limiting the amount they will sell to you.
I presently need at least 10K large pistol primers and a couple of my buddies need 25K small primers. A special hazmat shipping charge of $27.50 on each order makes a small order very costly. We were going to team up on an order and split the shipping and Hazmat charges, but when I tried to order they would not sell more than 10K. We are still trying to figure out how to handle this shortage. It is said to be brought on again by the election, just as it did 4 years ago. .
Here are a couple of the .45 Cal ACP reloaded bullets I make.
That is my reload on the left and a factory load from Spear on the right. One costs .40 cents, the other costs about .12 cents, you guess which is which.
These are all manufactured on my trusty Dillon RL550B reloading press. I have made well over 5000 rounds on this press at the present time. That’s a lot of handle pulls, with a lot more to come.
That is about it from North Ranch here in the desert of Arizona. The weather continues to be outstanding, with 50 deg mornings getting up to the mid 70’s during the day....with no humidity whatsoever! Can’t get much better that that!!
It is a GREAT WEEK!!!!
Thanks for stopping by. Come on back Sunday or if you're in the area, Happy Hour is at 4 !
May God continue to shine a light down on you and your loved ones.
