I was wrong

I did manage to make it to the range in December, which makes a total of three trips for all of 2011 (not counting AAC's Silencer Shoot, which was pretty awesome, you guys). Not a great year, on multiple fronts.

I shot the Hi-Power, an AR I completed back in May, the 870 (purchased last January) and the Sterling carbine (re-received back in October). I had the CZ and Sig Mosquito packed, but they never got brought out. C'est la vie. I emptied the magazine in the Hi-Power, and fired the AR, 870, and Sterling for the first time. Everything worked! Huzzah!

Alas, I am way out of practice, and hardly hit anything.

I only have one magazine for the Sterling at the moment, but shooting it's a gas. There's almost no recoil, and very little noise or blast (pistol ammo through a 16" barrel: go figure). I couldn't tell how much of the problem with hitting with it was due to the sights and how much was me. (I wasn't impressed with the peep sight, though.) Still, fun.

Just FWIW: the Sterling carbine is a Wise Lite build purchased and worked over by the guys at Crusader Weaponry. Fun gun, and I've been pretty pleased with the customer service.

I haven't even been up to much on Twitter. I have a Google Plus account, but haven't figured out what that's for, yet.

May be finally getting that ACR, though.

I guess I missed the sign when we crossed the state line from Tennessee to Hell

I spent last weekend in West Memphis, Arkansas, volunteering at AAC's Silencer Shoot 2011. I was able to shoot a suppressed Remington ACR in full auto, and to shoot Remington's new gas piston AR upper in full auto, as well. I highly recommend the experience, if you can find a time and location when it's not quite so warm: highs starting at 99 Fahrenheit take a lot of the fun out of walking around and looking at things in the out of doors.

I also got to shoot a suppressed Glock 17. I'm pretty sure it was one of the 4th generation models, so that may have something to do with it, but I found the Glock less ergonomically awful than expected. Not half bad, in fact.

I had a blast, honestly, but I think if I go back, it may be as a paying customer and only one day (if they do a two-day thing again). And with more money. Fastest way to turn money into noise, indeed. Only, without so much noise.

In light of recent events, SKD Tactical is having a sale.

I bought a chest rig, just because.

Also, I laughed.

I am not very patient.

Ordered a semi-custom gun a while back (one of a small run of Sterling carbines built by a small company out west). Been waiting a while now. When I contacted the guy building it a week ago, I was told I'd get a tracking number when it shipped. So, I've promised myself I won't bug him about for at least a little while.

And, even if I got to pick it up tomorrow, it'd be at least a week before I could take it out and shoot it.

But! So impatient.
