Plenty of ammo for everyone; help yourself to over 49 calibers! All you can carry in your truck; I'll load you and bring more.

I have a new load for myself put aside to add to my ammo dump & arsenal.

The Derby was awesome too! An ole KY trainer won for the first time on Orb.

And a 100 to 1 driver David Ragan won after some some crazy arse crashes. Danica should have finished in the top 10 but for the 9 lap left crash. She was crying IMHO.

Danica did that well? Good on her.
The Track at the derby looked pretty sloppy.
I bet that was an interesting race.

I got a thing about the horse races, I used to work at the speed barns when I was a kid.
(that means I shoveled ****)

I have been sniffing fumes all weekend working on this tiger wood maple stock for the 8th annual TCMS.

I am just working on the iridescents.

Cool stock.

I did a hand rubbed finish on a stock about 30 years ago. It was a big PITA. It’s still looking awesome.

You NEED a slide fire before Bammy bans em.

Sounds like the convention was a hit.

I like how they are ported.

I want to do that to my Glocks. How much recoil does it lower?

When the finish is done I will have to futz around with Eye relief as this stock is longer than the original and I am using a 6x POSP scope vice the original 4x

A while back, the guy next to me at an indoor range had a suppressed full-auto 9mm carbine. It was fun listening/watching him.

A can would work well on 9mm.

.308?

Not so much.

What was the new SIG 9.5” short barrel rifle with a 6.5” flash suppressor they were talking about?

I can’t find it on their website.

Their pizza is good. However, the very best thing they offer is their chicken. The chicken is better than any restaurant that I can remember.

Both lunch and dinner are buffet so you pay your money and pig out to your heart's content.

Both are $500-600 overpriced for what you get. I shot one of the prototypes at the FFLs in Pitt, before I moved, and both my $1200-1400 Kimbers put them to shame. But then, I’ve done some “extra work” on them both.

The SW1911s are cosmetically flashy, but are just marginal out of the box; takes a long while to sight-in and get used to trigger pull and recoil. The long beavertail is awkward concealed. Standard mag isn’t any good; Wilson Combat Officer 8-rnd mags are the only ones to have and use.

At $900-950, they’d be a far better value for SW1911s.

S&W is trying to climb the ladder into Kimber and Wilson Combat territory. Time will tell.

I can out shoot my friends Kimber Pro Carry II with my RIA commander.

The Kimber is sweet, but it actually has more recoil because it is lighter.

What is really of note is that the 1911 is just such a good design.
102 years later we still love them.

Are you talking about the MPX?

http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2013/01/foghorn/new-from-sig-sauer-mpx-submachine-gun-carbine/

It's a sub gun in 9mm with a 6.5” barrel and 9.5” permanently attached muzzle break.

I think I heard they debuted it at the SHOT Show.
