The Outrider

“Man is a machine, but a very peculiar machine. He is a machine which, in the right circumstances, and with the right treatment, can know that he is a machine, and having fully realized this, he may find the ways to cease to be a machine.” — P.D. Ouspensky

Celebrating Gun Appreciation Day

2013-01-19_16-18-03_604(1)Went to the range today to celebrate Gun Appreciation Day with Liebie.  It was crowded. An hour and a half wait. There was not nearly as much brass lying around as normal, the ones that were seemed to be aluminum or steel casings.  I got to play with the Taurus 617 .357 revolver. Liebie and I ran some .38’s through it and her S&W Airweight. Both weapons had decent accuracy for a 2 1/2 barrel. I ran some Hornadays in .357 and let me tell you, you can really feel the difference in recoil. I could see where it might get to you after a few boxes. I may pick up the Ribber grips. I found a holster at Stonewall’s (where the range is). I am not a big fan of nylon, but it IS molded somehow and seems solidly made.  The leather ones would not quite fit right because of the seven shot cylinder.  I will probably only wear it on a belt when I am feeling froggy, or walking around the undisclosed location anyways, as I usually carry my Glock 23 concealed. After shooting the .357 with the magnum rounds, my pattern tightened up a bit with the Glock. I still need more trigger time, but who doesn’t?


Bianchi model 7506, size 4. Made for a S&W K Frame, but fits the Taurus like a glove.

  1. Glad you had some fun, I stopped at Gander to get some shotgun shells, tomorrow try out the new riot gun, and the only 223’s they had were zombies, $24.00 a box….glad I’m set…..;)

  2. This was the first time I had been to Stonewalls since they expanded. It’s pretty nice now. The floor in the range was the cleanest I ever saw it with the reloading people crawling around picking up brass like a crack head rummaging through shag carpeting for a piece. The only .223 I saw was at Red Dog in Chardon, PMC going for $12.50 a box. Not bad considering even though it was $7 a box a month ago.
