Any time I get to pull the trigger is going to be a good time. Shooting indoors at the range is always good, but it is never as good as shooting outside……..
So, off to my brother’s house in the country where “pew, pew, pew” can be done in the back yard. Really strange summer this year in that this may have been only the second time I shot here. Probably mostly because ammo ain’t cheap like it used to be.
Looking pretty good.
Actually, it looked like crap before I got there. I called my brother on Wednesday and said I was coming out and since I hadn’t been out all summer tending to the range upkeep, it was overgrown with weeds and the such so my brother took the Bobcat out and leveled everything out !!
My brother and his Glock going Gangsta on the clangers …
OK, now as I was arriving, my dad was in his truck leaving and he said, “I’m going to Rural King to get some tannerite.”
OK, not the strangest thing I have heard my dad say but……..
The house just north of here (1/2 mile away from the range) was built almost 30 years ago illegally. The person that owned the land, cut a 1/2 acre off and sold it to a hillbilly. That was absolutely and completely against county building codes but no matter how it was challenged, the county allowed it to be built !!!
Now, that hillbilly family lived there until about two years ago when it was sold to a family of white trash. The day they moved in, they parked six cars in the backyard. Their dog roams (and craps) on my brother’s property and their chickens are in the garden !!!! One of them likes to sit on his motorcycle and rev the engine as loud as he can for 30-40 minutes at a time.
The day before I called my brother, my dad said that my brother should call me to come over and shoot and get out the gun that rattles the windows (the AR and/or the 50 cal muzzle loader). So yes, my dad was going to town to buy explosives to annoy the white trash !!! Do I have that to look forward to when I’m 85????
So, we played with the Tannerite. Neither of us had ever used it before.
Pretty cool and fun !!!
FYI the video is my brother shooting. I hit each of my targets with one shot each.
My brother had called the other neighbor (the good one) the day before to warn him that we’d be shooting. The neighbor asked if he could shoot as well and of course he could !!.
He had a new, unused 45 cal Glock. Don’t recall which model it was but it was full size.
I shot it a few times and really liked it. I was very surprised at much recoil it didn’t have !!! It didn’t feel any different than my brother’s 9mm Glock. And I’m the guy that shoots 380 and 22’s all the time !!
