Got back from Crimson Trace M3G yesterday, and -- as always -- had a super time! I didn't shoot the whole match...instead, I parachuted into the cool stages with the exotic hardware. It's always big fun, and if you get a chance to go, it should definitely be on your list!
I put a bunch of rounds through the new S&W M&P .22 Compact. Liked it a bunch. Details on Wednesday's podcast. Ditto on the S&W 929 8-shot Performance Center revolver and the Kimber .380 (Sweet, BTW! Expensive, too).
I've got several guns in house I'll be shooting next week, too, including the super cool Ruger Redhawk KODIAK .44 Magnum 2.75-inch, another TALO exclusive. You guys know I have a thing for, and collect, big bore snubs, and the round-butt Redhawk to me is just about perfect. I love my .454 Alaskan, but I've sorta kicked myself in the butt for not getting the .44 Magnum version.
I've always liked the Redhawk...if you have a long enough memory, Kem Jorgensen and I took a revolver class with 4-inch .44 Redhawks running .44 Specials, which we featured on SG. People laughed at the big hoglegs at first, but less so when we ran the heavy .44 Specials faster than the .357s.
I've also got one of the first TALO Ruger SP-101 Wiley Clapp versions, with Novaks...too cool! And the JP 9mm GMR-13 carbine.
I'll be a busy boy!
Also, if I can pat myself on the back just a little, last weekend I finished 2nd overall in the local cowboy match. Today I dragged my butt out of bed at zero-dark-thirty to shoot another cowboy match...the scores just came out and I was lucky enough to grab another 2nd overall. It was fun, too...
