Just got back from our range time and luncheon. It was great fun. Two members made their first appearance with us, Jester and Slugg. They are a welcome addition to our merry band of preppers. Special thanks to the Austin-based fellas for coming as it was a bit of a drive for all of you.
What did we learn from today's shoot and lunch?
Spammity's Sterling carbine was a blast to shoot. It felt solid like a tire iron and had practically no recoil. The magazines were also industrial strength metal. So solid, in fact, that you could use them to hammer in tent stakes -- not to mention zombie noggins should one run out of ammo. Oh, by the way Spamster, don't let'm tell you that your shot shell bandoleer is mall-ninja....just say that it's highly functional.
Dubbya's bull-pup .22 was "dead-on-balls-accurate". I was putting rounds in holes making me think I was missing completely sometimes. No really, it's that accurate. D's bolt action .270 was like-wise accurate and left you with that ever-so-pleasing sensation of shoulder whip-lash.
Glitch took out his frustration with his shotgun on some postal service package cardboard he purchased (apparently the postal service, in keeping with it's very efficient record-keeping, sent/charged him 10x the amount of boxes more than he ordered). From the looks of things, he had some kind of special enmity against those boxes. I sort of feel sorry for those boxes.
Jester's Kimber was a beautiful thing to behold. His xd45 was also fun to shoot. Jester shot so many bullz-eyes that the target backing we received from the range had to go in the trash. Hope, your AR problem turns out to be a minor problem.
When the smoke cleared, we went to Tink-a-Taco for some nearly authentic Mexican food (Sure beats the heck out of Taco Cabana and Taco Bell
I took full advantage of my elder statesman status by poaching nachos from both ends of the table. We discussed some ZS-related topics and then engaged in random, nonsensical chit-chat. It was a fun meal with a great bunch of folks -- not a weirdo among them. Who would have "thunk" that I would meet down-to-earth, very stable people from a website named, "Zombie Squad".
Glitch talked about the next scheduled event -- a bugout, campout (location TBD) in September. If anybody reading this wants to go, Glitch will post more about that in early August.
Well, be seeing you.
