Monarch Ammo

The Academy store across the street has started selling 9x18 ammo, made by Monarch (made in Russia), for $8 some-odd a box. Any experience with it out there? I's the steel-cased stuff...

Cobra Patriot 45

Cobra Patriot 45

Love that stuff-- I love to pick up the Taurus and S&W catalogs at the gun shop (he gives 'em away) and compare the prices, selection, etc. IMHO, Taurus has the venerable S&W beat hands-down all around.

Range Report on My New CZ452

I am just an old stick-in-the-mud myself, but I like the looks of the "standard" beavertail on the 1911. Good-lookin' guns hereabouts, I have to say...

Fave Nightstand Gun

I'm really starting to like the looks of Ruger and Taurus products--from everything I see they are reliable, quality arms at about 2/3 to 1/2 the cost of the competition--sort of like GR's Patriot!

Cleaning

I think i've used it--I just can't keep track of where I put it, it's with some of the boys' paintball stuff, been awhile since I've seen it--LOL. Seemed to work OK, but it wasn't quite as thick as what I was expecting.

Another experiment

This time with grips-- my Mak grips were that brownish stuff with various colored flecks throughout, I liked them but they were really scratched and abraded on parts of the checkering. Christian had some Krylon "Camouflage" paint, made to bond with plastic ( They call it "Fusion") in OD green, so I ...

OK guys--I'll have to get Christian or Stephen to take some pics for me--been so long since I posted any I will have to get back up to speed. (I'm embarrassed, tho, I didn't think to take any "before" pics...)
