    Yesterday I walked into a bar in western Colorado and some guy was holding a pistol to the head of a young lady. Since I had been loaned a .40 Glock I moved over to my left so I could see him and in one reflex I pushed that little black pistol outward and it went off. Hit him in the face. He dropped like a stone.

    Only one small problem, the dirtbag had a buddy. He was in a small room off to the right. He would have smoked me cold but the guy with me pointed him out and I put two fast ones into his chest, three inches apart. Pretty noisy shooting a .40 in a small bar, but I don't have much hearing left to lose.

    Aside from that, weather was real nice, had a great fillet last night, met some neat folks, a pretty good trip.

    Bill,
    It wasn't really long range shooting, but since I do not shoot handguns and since I had never shot a guy in the noggin across a bar-room, it was a long shot for me!

    O.K.

    With a pistol, anything past the muzzle is long range for me. I bet that is a blast!!

    BTW, you had me searching for a shooting in CO yesterday. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    They had a section of an airplane, a living room setup of a house, a bar, a park with an old car - lots of realism. Big challenge for me was figuring how to load that damn Glock. Some kind of fragmenting bullet, plus steel walls everywhere but no chance of a bullet bouncing back at you.
    We also shot a brand new GA Precision .308 and a Robar that was all painted up, plus about ten other rifles that ranged from a lever action 44mag to a tricked out .22 Ruger 10-22. Then we shot shotguns for two rounds, not really a sporting clays setup but next to it. Shotguns and I do not get along that well but I hit a lot of really difficult angle shots and missed a lot of dead-ass easy ones.
    Shooting at all those dummies in the shoot-house was the hoot tho. Place is so good that all sorts of SWAT and Special Forces units practice there. Saw some martial arts stuff that was amazing.

    Ian M,
    That had to be a lot of fun,
    the best I've had it was a couple of years ago
    when I had a lucky day. In fact it was with a glock 35 practical tactical in .40.
    You need a fast conection.
