$350.00, 500 rounds, over the weekend, and local.

I think I'm going to sign up.


I really liked the CRG DVD that John lent me. I watched it numerous times and practiced all of the stuff that Gabe Suarez had in there.

Just a heads up for Speed Strip fans. Quickstrip has several new strips available.

http://www.midwayusa.com/Search/#qui...__-_1-2-4_8-16

The most interesting ones to me are the eight-shot .357:

http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct...tnumber=854684

the .22LR:

http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct...tnumber=615128

the 9mm Luger:

http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct...tnumber=752127

the .45 ACP:

http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct...tnumber=292484

and the 12-gauge:

http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct...tnumber=492870

The .38/.357 Quickstrip I played with wasn't as nice as the Bianchi Speed Strips I'm familiar with because the spacing of the rounds on the Quickstrip was such that the rounds didn't fall into the chambers from gravity alone. The spacing was off enough that the rounds would bind slightly as they were pushed into the cylinder. (This was on my J-frames. You guys with Ks or Ns or Colts might get different results.)

But Quickstrip does offer quite a lot of different options that Bianchi doesn't. I'm going to try the 9mm Quickstrip for my 940 and I'm looking forward to trying the .22LR Quickstrip on my friend Jeff's Model 17 and the forthcoming 43C. If you have a 1917 or one of its progeny, you might look into the .45 ACP Quickstrips as another option for your moon clips. You guys with coach guns might be interested in the 12-Gauge Quickstrip, and so on.

Take a look.

I was loving the hat too. The sun was brutal. There were lots of red necks.

I was good about applying sunscreen until the last day - it was so cold I forgot to put on the sunscreen. Showed up at work on Tuesday with a red neck and red ears.

Junior here is playing with the big boys:


I'd like to see him roll ejection port down on his malfunctions but this kid's fundamentals are solid!

In the Phillipines that kid would already be in a Senior division.

Gee, I wonder if that kid will be grumbling about how there's nothing better than a 1911 when he's a old coot??

"Man mistaken for target shot during Ariz. gun training"

The Arizona Republic

A 50-year-old man was mistaken for a target and accidentally shot during an exercise at a firearm-training facility in northern Arizona, authorities said.

The Florida man was training with three of his colleagues Sunday at the Gunsite Academy in Paulden, which is about 30 miles north of Prescott, the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office said Thursday.


The man was standing on a catwalk as his colleague fired at targets. The colleague saw the black silhouette of the man and fired, shooting the man in the abdomen, officials said.

Instructors administered first aid before he was flown to a local hospital for treatment and surgery. On Thursday, he was listed in good condition.

Trainees had been told not to shoot in the area of the catwalk. No charges were expected against the shooter.

Buz Mills is the owner of the facility and candidate for governor. "We are relieved this client is in good condition thanks to the swift actions of our staff at Gunsite and the dedicated paramedics at the Central Yavapai Fire District," Mills said. Mike Scerbo, press secretary for Buzz Mills, said Mills has owned Gunsite Academy since 1999.

'Don't shoot near the catwalk.'

'Shoot near the catwalk?!? O.K.!!'

I'd be interested to know how the kettle bells featured in the training. Also, seems like Gabe uses airsoft in the carbine classes, too. I think force on force has the capacity to be valuable training - what was your impression, Jack?

I have more pics and I'll let them speak for themselves.
As Tom would say, "It was not without its charm", but it was a bit, um, err, unconventional for me.
