“Shooting Guns & Having Fun”

    Well it is nice to know that the “Rednecks” at the pancake house did not steal Freeze’s fuel from the tank!
    I do agree that anyone beating on any pistol with a hammer is truly a jackass.
    I tend to shoot between 3.5 to 4 thousand rounds a year… and at least some of them accurately, does this qualify me for shooter status? This is not from just one pistol, but spread out over 4 or 5…
    Making that first shot count has been part of my training drills for a long time. The indoor range that I go to doesn’t allow drawing from the holster, and since someone almost shot off his dick – neither does the outdoor range. What I am left with is doing my dry-fire drills with a laser insert and a laser target to practice with. It limits my range, but also allows me to practice anywhere in my house. This also ties in with using double action to acquire better trigger/grip/sight-picture control. Just like a bullet, the laser will not lie about where you were aiming when the hammer fell. And sometimes that double action puuuuulll feels so very long!
    Thanks for covering more gun stuff this time, although the last podcast was enjoyable too!

    • You need to be very careful with lasers. What happens is the shooter tends to, “look over” the gun at the laser and not through the sights.

      As for the redneck comment, that was just Freeze kicking my family’s southern heritage.

        Thanks for keeping me on my toes Marky! The laser that I use is a training aid that goes into the chamber and is activated when it is struck by the firing pin, most of the time you do not even see it flash, and only know where, or if, you hit the target when you engage the “show-hits” feature on the target. It really is a cool system and allows me to train with my real firearms rather than just using a CERT pistol. If they had a CERT pistol in the model of what I carry then I would be interested in maybe going that route just to be even more safe, but what I do works well, I just have to be very aware of making sure that I have no live ammo in my training area. The device looks like an over long 9mm round with no rim for an extractor to grab onto, this allows for working the slide without ejecting the laser. You just push it out with a pencil when you are done with the training session! The target is made by “Laserlyte” and has been well worth the cost for money saved in ammo alone. I have never used a laser aiming device on any of my guns, as I had it drilled into me that those types of tools work in BOTH directions!

        • I have played with some of the laserlyte (I think) stuff a few years ago. I might have to break them back out.

            I do wish that they would come out with more “models” of “Cert” pistols… I get it that so many folks shoot Glock pistols, but jeez loueez there are other guns out there who could use some love too! I guess that is why I am so happy with my set-up as it lets me use my guns with their old school hammers and double/single action triggers! I have been using a product called “Dry Fire Training Cards” with the Laserlyte targets. Putting the 2 of them together for training really boosted the effective results! Have you ever used the Dry Fire Training Cards? I would be willing to have a set sent out to you if you wanted to give them a try.

  • It does seem the T91 issue we mention in this episode might be resolved. —Marky

    • Brennen Munro

      It looks like it has a gas key on the sight mount… Is it DI or does it use a Piston? I am not real familiar with ROC small arms.

Obviously the upper is different. The hand guard is different. The removable carry handle is different. The pistol grip is different. And the stock seems like one of those old SP1 commando type stocks from Vietnam. As least to my untrained eye. More to come in the future.
