    #1 shooting gun

    What is your #1 shooting gun. Not your carry gun but the one you enjoy shooting for recreation. Choose the caliber and post a pic.

    I've always been a 45 ACP guy. Can't post a photo as I don't know how. My favorite is my first year ('84 I believe) Colt Officer's Model. Nelson Ford set it up for me. He is to Smith's and Colts (doubles and autos) locally, what Bob James is to single actions. My second favorite is my wifes big 'ol Smith Model 27 in 357. By the way, I'm the guy who scored your coils and shocks out at ORI. Joe at AO installed them for me along with a Daystar spacer kit. It set me up real nice, thanks again!! I asked on the JK Questions thread (which you may not revisit) what your rear bumper is, you posted a photo of it. If you don't mind PM me, I think it looks very clean and I'd like to get one for my rig!! I got the same antenna and antenna mount at Apollo, also very clean!

    I didn't see any shot guns on here. Nothin' like the sound of rackin
    a shell. Especially if the lil bass - tards come into my house in the
    middle of the night.

    I agree 100%! I would submit though, that the sound of a round being racked into a 45 is just about as universally feared. I got to do that once and it was one of the most memorable and pleasant experiences of my life.

    I have a WWI 30-06 Enfield that has been sporterized and setup for target shooting.

    My father is a bench rest rifle shooter and he loads up a nice, easy 1500 fps load with plain lead boat tail's...

    You can just sit there for hours shooting again and again (maybe go through 40 rounds). People think your crazy for shooting that caliber again and again, until I explain to them that there is hardly any recoil from the light target loads...

    Then I take out the .300 Winchester Magnum, Ruger No. 1 and clear out my sinuses (and the sinuses of those around me for a couple of tables), run through 5 rounds and go home.

    My favorite shooting gun is my M-1 carbine, good groups at 100 yards, and you can plink in the desert without worrying about what's a mile down range.


    If I want to reach out and touch something, Shmidt-Ruben. .30 cal. swiss rifle with a Nikon scope. Everything stays in the black with this rifle, unless I'm dialing in a new load......
    05 Rubi., "HYJAK" 5.5" RK X-factor long arm lift, 37" Pro Comp Xterrains, Walker Evans 17" BL, ARB lockers,4:88 gears with alloy axles, 9.5 ti Warn winch. Monkeybars custom roll cage.

    Re: #1 shooting gun

    I enjoy shooting my XD45 and routinely put more rounds through it during a session than anything else.

    That being said, I'm hoping to divert some of the lead and powder to my Ruber Mark 1 which will significantly reduce the $$ spent putting said lead down range.

    I posted a couple of short videos from the last range session.

    http://www.stu-offroad.com/misc.asp ..... bottom of the list on the left hand side, myself and a friend practice two shot COM. Given I have a SERPA holster (active retention system), I'm happy with the results thus far. More practice is needed....(new years resolution).

    Re: #1 shooting gun

    Nice job Stu...

    Shooting video is a great way to find your flaws isnt it?

    One thing I see...is a little bit of trigger slap...and fully releasing the trigger for the 2nd shot. When not doing timed drills...take the 1st shot and hold the trigger back...then slowly let it out til the trigger resets. (you should hear/feel it click) then front sight and press again. rinse repeat...repeat, repeat, repeat

    You've got some good groups..and speed will come with practice. Then you can conceal it...and start moving OFF the "X" while firing.
