I love elegant, cheap tools . . .

Making preparations for a trip to the range with Jay G.  I have been using one of these:

to get ready.

Don’t know what it is?  Info here.

Two confessions . . .

Time to come clean:

1.  I don’t shoot enough.  Range trips are few and far between these days…..

2.  And when I do go, I shoot the cheapest ammo I can buy at my local merchant (no mail order ammo in Mass…).

So not only do I need to increase the number of rounds sent downrange, I need to pony up some bucks for  more  “carry ammo” and higher-quality .22.

But it needs to be done, especially the carry ammo.  WWB 45ACP is tamer than Hornady .45 Auto+P 230 gr HP XTP® TAP® FPD™ (835 fps vs 950 fps, which is about 14% higher, and the muzzle energy is about 29% higher….).

Train like you fight, fight like you train.
