Got my boss some ammo for Christmas

Now how many bosses in the office environment could you do that for? I'm very lucky to have a no BS straight shoot'n boss and since she told me her Christmas tradition is to go duck hunting and have fresh duck for Christmas dinner I picked up a box of buck for her... Ho Ho Ho!

Man, I burnt up 100 rounds of .45 last night. So expensive. I should get into reloading, but that's like a whole nother false justification, like how I got into vinyl to save money on music...

Dude, when I go to the range I usually bring about 1000 rounds just for my 2 hand guns and they usually only last an hour... seriously expensive hobby!

I'm not a handgun guy but your guns must get very hot. After I shoot about ten rounds through my 7mm Rem. Mag it turns 1" groups at 200yds to 4" groups at 200yds.

My first boss out of college was a second lieutenant in the Army reserves (at the time). He stashed a 9mm glock + extra clips in the glovebox of his 89' Bronco. He was a real hot head too... cool guy to work for, but NOT the kind of guy you'd want to upset. The kind of guy who will back you up 110% for anything. We'd go hang out and smoke cigars after work.

We were in sales and going to a big semiconductor convention in san francisco. He asked me to get a map out of his glove box... I flipped when I saw it there.

Yeah, but handguns aren't accurate to start with. Possibly the POI does shift, but you'd never notice it.

Yeah, I don't shoot over 50yds at the handgun range so I never notice my pattern changing.

Last year I bought a match air pistol (Styer LP2) World class air pistols awesomely fun, can shoot in your house and develop exceptional aim and trigger control. and the lead is reasonably inexpensive For S&Gs it's fun to toss a handful of paintballs out into the yard and pick 'em off

It's much easier to be a gun enthusiast if you live in a rural area that ISN'T in California. Now that I live in the big city I have some extremely PC concious aquaintances that can't understand why I like to shoot for recreation. I always tell them,"It's just a country-boy thing" (not that city folk can't enjoy shooting).

When I was 9 I started shooting on an NRA competitive smallbore team after being selected to try-out while taking an NRA gun safety course. That was one of the funnest things I have ever done. I shot for a couple years until I got too heavily involved in athletics in middle school. Today, I regret straying away from competitive shooting. It was probably the only thing I could ever consider myself the best at. I never entered a competition where I didn't win first place by a large margin. The problem was, the cool kids were playing conventional sports and at that time I, of course, was heavily influenced by that.

Hey, I just got into vinyl to save money on music. Uh oh.

Hermitt- thanks for the recommendation! I might have to pick one of those up. I love to make holes with the .45, but it's increasingly pricey, especially with the jump in the price of metals. I've been mulling a .22 target pistol, but you still have to take it to the range. Unfortunately, not many unincorporated areas in LA, though that doesn't exactly stop people from shooting around here.

10 meter air pistol is great practice. The quality of the match pistols are very high, which is why these are the same pistols used in the world events and the olympics. With my aging eyes, it's really rewarding to get 8 or 9 shots out of a string of 10 into the 9 or x (the 9 ring is approximately the size of a quarter. I use one of my scuba bottles for refilling the air cylinders. One $5 scuba tank fill lasts for over 6 months and like I said, it's fairly easy to set a trap out 10 meters just about anywhere.
