I was getting some tire work done, and the shop also carries guns ......


They had a couple items on special....

I couldn't resist.

Picked up a Ruger LCR 380. $200 nib. American made.


How can you go wrong.

Got it home and tried it out. 5 inch groups @ 25 feet one handed. Flawless feed.
Reasonable but long pull trigger.



You just can't go wrong with a Ruger.

It even came with a pocket holster!

Thumbsup

That's a bargain. Yes

Here I am home from the club with my newest trap gun, a Browning Citori 725.

Outta my price range though...


By a decimal point or so...

RE: The gun thread. Enthusiasts only.
I've been collecting parts for this one for a few of months. The barrel was the last thing I needed and it came in the mail today. It's purpose-built for 3-gun. 4.85 lbs without the optic and irons. 5.46 lbs with them.

Here is the parts list.

I could get it down to under 5 lbs for the whole package if I wanted to with the judicious application of another $400.

I've been invited to try 3-gun when it starts up again in the spring. I'll need to get a magazine extension for the Rem. 870. I've built some ARs but weight was not a big consideration. Is it important to have it light in a 3-gun?

There are different schools of thought, but that's the way a lot of the folks I shoot with have been going. I've shot a couple of their lightweights and liked them. Easier to hold and quicker to move. What I'm really liking so far about this setup is the Trijicon MRO on the lower 1/3 mount. The objective lens is bigger than an Aimpoint Micro and sitting 1/4" higher on the mount gives me an easier to repeat cheek weld.
