  1. You're not cherry-picking targets? Seriously, though, you're not alone. As much as I like shooting, I'm not all that good at it. I see all the dime-sized groups and know good and well I can't do that. For starters, my eyes just aren't what they used to be. I can hear it now: Turns to first daughter. "Hold the target over your chest." Turns to other daughter. "No, you may not shoot at it right now."
  2. Earlier in this thread, I said I'd look at a 1911. While that's still true, I'd also look into the S&W MP45 Compact and Shield in .45. I guess that's assuming the OP didn't make a choice yet. OP? Did you make a choice?
  3. I didn't realize for the first 35 years of 10/22 ownership that you could take them apart for cleaning.
  4. No, I did not. I still think about replacing her from time to time, but I haven't yet done it. The truth of the matter is: (1) I can't afford to buy another pistol unless I sell something. (2) My G19 runs very reliably. (3) I have a hard time letting go of a reliable gun. Any reliable gun. (4) I really don't carry my G19 any more. My Shield has pretty much made it a bench-warmer. With all of that said, I still consider selling off my G19 to fund something else from time to time. All of the pistols in my OP are still on the list, and I've added the G48 and a couple of others, like the VP9SK.
  5. I've had an LCR for several years. Mines the .357, but I carry .38s in it. It's a great little gun. The trigger is kind of long, but smooth, and it just disappears into a pocket. Great little pistol. Sadly, I have no experience with the Body Guard, so I can't offer a comparison.
  6. Do I wear a hat? Just about every time I step out of the house. Ball caps look silly with suits, so I have about a half dozen fedoras to wear to work, and ball caps for casual and weekend wear.
  7. The Benchmade Sequel is getting the most carry time right now, but I do like the Spyderco Native 5. Nice and light, but a bit too big for my pocket.
  8. That's a beautiful knife. I've recently rediscovered how much I enjoy pointy, slicey things and have been carrying a Benchmade Sequel.
  9. Yep. I've got a Mk IV 22/45 Lite and Mrs. McGee has a 22/45 Target and they're great pistols. I had a Standard for many years, but I'm afraid that I skipped right over Mks II and III.
  10. ^^^I don't have anywhere close to that amount in my stash, but I'm working on it while .22 is cheap. I dig that pistol, too. I've been thinking I need a Mark with a bull barrel.
  11. I don't know enough to recommend pellets to you, but I somewhat got back into pellet guns when .22 was so scarce. Here are a couple of the sources I recall: https://www.airgundepot.com/ https://www.pyramydair.com/ I think both have articles or blogs or something to help figure out what you need.
  12. I've finally completed my Squirrel Sniper. Above, you can see the "Before" picture. After that was taken, I had the barrel threaded, got my NFA stamp for my Dead Air Mask, hit Academy Sports when it had the Nikon Prostaff Rimfire 3-9x40 on sale, and added a sling. Below, you'll find the "After" picture.
  13. The old saying has always (in my lifetime) been "buy it cheap and stack it deep." Now is the time.
