Where is a gun thread when you want one?
flag waver

I had the pleasure of firing a .22 and a .45 ACP today. Never shot a pistol before, and we didn't have the best targets, orange dealies in the snow. He hit them, I didn't. Something to shoot for: aim is next on my list.

He had the pleasure of shooting my Mossberg shotgun, which he had never done before. That special ops stock ET suggested kicks ass. Now I can actually aim the gun at uninvited guests.

We went back to his place, spent an hour cleaning our weapons and now we are cookin' dinner. Actually, I am, he's out on the sled driving around in circles.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 622863


A bit much for a 5'2" 125 lb. girl, but it is all about practice. Our plan is to start with the bb gun, which we can shoot in his back yard. Then the .22 which kept jamming, hence the intense cleaning session. Then the .45.

He taught me to field strip and reassemble the .45, but both weapons were thoroughly disassembled and oiled.

LOL! I brought my own boolits for his .45 and my cleaning kit. He liked the lube.

Re: Where is a gun thread when you want one?
You did well especially handling .45's recoil.
Smart, thinking about home defense with the shotgun.
Most shotguns are useless in close quarters: hallways and going through doorways.
Try shot loads in that .45!
My advice: Get a bb or pellet gun that feels like the .45 and practice often. Hand-eye coordination is instinct after enough practice.

Past:
Taught a 5' 0-1/2" 105lb ex to shoot.
She was more accurate, in aimed fire, than me, in just a few hundred shots. With .22 .380 9mm and shotgun.

Taught her martial arts.
She kicked me in the nose and broke my nose.
I was so proud!
(my nose was nearly a foot over her head)


IMHO
ALL women should be able and willing to defend themselves.

past:
Took one GF to Sheriff's for a Concealed Carry Permit.
She had a warrant.

They took her into custody and I called her ex to help me pay fine and arrange bail.
As she was being arrested, the desk Deputy said: "When she gets it cleared up; Give her the gun."
She still carries that AMT Backup now.

That's funny. I apparently underestimated you.

Pistol permit in my state is a bitch, and you know what I'm dealing with right now so it isn't a good time to go for one. When all is said and done I'm putting it in.

Next: .357 revolver.

The Mossberg is great, and I have good set up for self defense. Call 911, leave the line open, three warnings, one of which will be the intimidating sound of the rack, the other two will be me telling them to get the fuck out of my house. If they come up to the loft, clear shot and clear case of self-defense.

actually you can buy a conversion kit for the 45ACP that makes it where you can shoot 22 cal rounds through it.

here is a link to a forum for the 45ACP and conversion kits.

plenty of great info on the site.

Re: Where is a gun thread when you want one?
I own one for my 45ACP and have never had a problem with it.



another link for turning your 45ACP into a rifle. it is just a attatchment.. you can find it cheaper if you search the web.

[link to www.mechtechsys.com]

This is the first CCU MechTech created. It is also the most highly tested with some units now having reached the 100,000 round mark! Highly effective, this will add greater versatility to your current handgun. Muzzle energy is increased by some 25%, not to mention greater accuracy at greater distances. We've even received pictures of people taking down bears with this CCU.

It is a Smith and Wesson. He's not sure it can be converted. Thanks, we'll definitely look at it. At first I thought it was a 1911, but he says it isn't. At least he has two clips.

It's his pistol, and I'd like to learn to use iron sights first. I was surprised at how shaky I was (35 degrees outside), and know that if I was "tested" I'd be even shakier. But then again, we could install one for the initial learning curve and take it out later. Good advice. Thanks.

That Mossberg could tear a hole in an uninvited guest no matter how shaky I am and with no aim. But I do recommend switching a pistol grip for a combo.

Re: Where is a gun thread when you want one?
Finally got to shoot with the new shotgun stock!

Glad you liked it!

A laser can be a good training tool on a pistol. They allow you to see if you're flinching or pulling the gun off target as you squeeze the trigger. I'm not crazy about them on defensive guns though. They can get knocked out of alignment, and unless you're using the iron sights also, you'll miss. They also give the bad guy a nice bright red light to aim at.

yep, lasers can be a dead give away, letting the bad guy know where you are, of course if a bad guy sees multiple laser dots on his chest, it may give him a moment to reflect on his life and change his ways

use them for training, great tool

Oh yeah, Drew loved the stock as well. I barely felt it in my shoulder.

I hear you. Don't need a laser at home w/the Mossberg, just enough balls to pull the trigger if I need to. I definitely need work on the iron sights. We were shooting at targets in the snow and there was no feedback like at a range or with an actual target that is more than 2 inches in diameter.

Going shopping for more booooolits ASAP. I'm hooked.

Laser sights are not just "training tools". Many of our law enforcement have them. They are also used by our troops in Iraq and Afghanistann. Also our border patrol.

Good ones rarely get "knocked out of alignment".

they have superior numbers and weapons/training, this is not good advice for a homeowner/survivalist, nor can we afford the high end lasers, which can cost thousands of dollars, the ones they use the majority of the time require night vision to see them, adding several thousand more dollars to the deal

swat teams use daylight lasers, again, in superior numbers with submachine guns, more as a deterrent/overwhelming force application

i have several fairly high end lasers, they are great training tools, and then they get put away
