Morning y'all.
Coffee and tea are ready.

Loaded some 125gr cast bullet loads and shot the Hi Power. It's a keeper. Removed the magazine safety disconnected. It is plastic.  ::)

'Tis 34 and sunny. High of 55.

You can replace the stock trigger with this wider trigger and it does away with the magazine disconnect, that way you can't be accused of removing a safety device and making the gun unsafe,Plus it giver you a better feel of the trigger pull. They have a lot of goodies for Hi-Powers there.

I've been looking at the goodies. The first thing I will be is get thinner grip panels. I have to change my grip to drop a mag. And, the grip gets in the way of applying the safety.
Altamont looks like what I will order. The guy at Lionquest Fitness uses them. They seem to be good quality and a good price. Their slim grips are 1/4" thinner than the stock grips.

Slim, check out http://www.craigspegel.com/  He has some very nice Hi-Power grips that aren't "Plywood" material like the Altamont grips. Might have a bit of a wait, but his grips are fantastic.

Afternoon all.

15, wind chill -2. That's chilly.

Condolences to the Bailey family.

If anyone wants a Kel-Tec P32 with a spare 10 round magazine, deSantis pocket holster, hard carry case, and 100 rounds of White Box 71gr FMJs, I'm looking to sell/trade mine.  I don't really need it anymore, at want something different. 
Just so y'all get first crack at it.

Ground is covered, wish it would have come in daylight, but he went out for a 1/2 hour or so and had fun.

Morning all.

Currently 4 degrees, wind chill -14. Have 2 inches of powder on top of yesterday's.

I'm selling my 32acp to my grandma. So now it's time for a trip to the gun shop. I think I'm going to pick up a Taurus 605, just to get a) a cartridge revolver b) a steel frame snubbie and c) a 357 magnum. All within my budget constraints. My local store has a 605 on sale for $250, so for a range toy that will mostly be shooting 38 Special/Long at Coke cans, that's not too bad.

Mid 40's and raining again here. When I arranged for Today and tomorrow off, (As of sat morning) the weather forecastwild guess was for mid 50s and sunshine, with sun and mid 40s tomorrow. Had a few hour's without rain earlier today, tomorrow maybe the same but 5-10 degrees colder. Trying to get some ground cleared for a new electric line right of way. Got most of the trees cut, but still have brush to drag and stack.

$250 is a bargain. Buy two if they have 'em.
BTW, .357's will be painful in a 605. They are in my Ruger SP101, which is a heavier gun. I only shoot .38's in my SP101.
