    I'd love to shoot that... I am looking at gettting xdm 9mm sc for heavier carry days... My understanding is the triggers are supper nice- and recoil springs... ehhhhh It seems most experts agree that you shouldn't mess with those too much from what I've seen and read. I tried changing my xd .40 and it had some reliability issues... went right back to factory setting and it has been there ever since.

    That it does, but I already have my double stack carry gun, and my wife can conceal a single stack more easily.

    Yesterday afternoon I got "volunteered" by a friend to help out at another club's free range event. Anyone can walk in and learn to shoot. I expected to be asked to hand out targets, cook the burgers, or traffic control, so I was very surprised to find a "Range Officer" badge modified to read "Range Staff", clipped on, and me told to go get busy coaching rookies. At one point I had to get a crash course in revolver operation: I can't teach what I don't know! I took a few shots at 50', and only saw the smiley face when I reeled it in.



    Today I meant to shoot in the annual SCVRC vs. Zouaves AR15 match, but the guy with the club ARs didn't get the memo and didn't bring them. Instead, I had even MORE fun by following the match director, learning just how easy it is to run one, watching everyone else shoot and their styles, and running the target crew. At one point we had to drive back and grab one more target. I told the two clinging to the tailgate to get off and get ready to shoot, but they stuck on for some reason. Really, how many shooters does it take to change a 4' x 4' cardboard target? LOL! Their mistake, they got all excited and worked up when they should have been resting and letting the heart settle.

    A couple cool shots.





    I don't think I ever posted my first rifle target from back in .... July. Good, I did date it. It's up on my wall. Half and half, M14 and M1 garand (ouch). The circled shots at the top aren't mine. This shows that one, I do have potential, and two, the carbine certainly needs help. (I know, I know, it's just a carbine, but I think that it can do better. The first few shots each morning are good, Xs and 10s.) Edit: I remember why my shots started drifting up as the morning wore on. We were pasting off-color, and as the holes and masking tape built up, the black dot slowly turned white, and invisible. Ha ha ha! It get really darned hard to see.




    Today after the match, lunch and awards, the line was opened up for a little fun shooting. A new friend let me try his M1 carbine. It's nice, shooting what mine *should* be like. I got about the same group, interestingly enough. The owner was amazed, apparently he doesn't get those results. Heh. My excuse for not shooting a little better? I was kinda tired.

    A buddy of mine told me I had never taken a decent pic of my Savage, and what do you know, I hadn't! So I did, or tried to.



    Need to camo the stock, but may wait till after deer season.

    I actually have two log books for this gun, but that's because of it's role as a long range precision rifle. The one you see pictured is a "write in the rain" notebook that I keep track of round count and ammo type, as well as cleanings etc. If I were to sell the rifle, that book would go with it, or it can be used to tell me if I need to replace a barrel, or other things. My other notebook is a shooting log book, I record my zeros, my adjustments due to conditions or range, my results from said adjustments and all sorts of info in that. It is basically a reference guide to what the rifle has done/should do in certain circumstances. Here is an example of what I plan to buy. http://stormtactical.com/70lbpapercoil.htm

    That is the only rifle I keep books on though.
