    shot a few clips on Monday:

    the players: Desert Eagle Baby Eagle .40 S&W, FN Herstal Five Seven 5.7mmx28
    [​IMG]

    groupings were not impressive...i can tell i've cut back shooting...a lot
    [​IMG]

    the range. nice shady spot back in the creek on the family land
    [​IMG]

    bonus round(sss) :D just got this in the mail today. CMMG 10 rd. mag extender...i now have 30 at my disposal
    [​IMG]

    of course...i had to get in a little "mini" wheeling :)
    [​IMG]

    got it crossed up pretty good in this section

    had a good ol time! impressions of the new FN were favorable...though my shooting really sucked. have not been practicing due to pricing/lack of availability of ammo. that is going to have to change. i didn't expect to do very well with the FN until i get aquainted with it, but should have been at least all inside the square with the Desert Eagle :mad: i suppose it could be the result of a very late/early sunday night, monday morining...lol. but i'll chalk it up to lack of practicing.

    i really like the FN. the light weight and uber-low recoil make it a joy to shoot. my Baby Eagle feels like a howitzer when comparing wieght. currently shopping for a holster for the five seven. with a quality holster, i could probably almost forget i'm carrying it...even fully loaded as opposed to the DE, which requires tightening of the belt to hold up.

    just thought i would share how i celebrated Memorial day.

    it was,but it doesn't happen nearly often enough these days though. i hadn't realized that i've not shot any of my handguns in over 6 months prior to this outing. two years ago, i woulda buried all the .40's in about a 3" group from that range. ran into a buddy a few weeks ago at a Friends of the NRA meeting that i hadn't seen for a while and found out he now has a Dillon Progressive setup and he obliged to do some reloading for me in the near future. i gotta get more trigger time...skills are going to sh*t. :mad:

    there are still some deals out there. the best i can find at the moment is 2000rds for $720 shipped. that is for SS197 with the Hornady bullet. the SS192 (if you can find it) is going for around $30/box of 50. i have only bought a few boxes so far as i have depleted my stash paying for the gun. i got a buddy who bought a five seven as well (his brother in law also just ordered one), and we're giong to split a 2000rd case as soon as i can come up with the fundage. i'm hoping this round continues to get more popular in the future. i would really like to have a bolt action chambered for it...it would make an excellent groundhog/coyote gun. maybe one day, if they aren't illegal, i can get my hands on a PS90 also...kinda goofy looking, but i bet it's fun to shoot. it'd be nice to have three different platforms shooting the same cartridge.

    True, but like I said, just a pet peeve of mine. Always out to educate wherever possible.

    i'm edumacated....but being that i'm not in law enforcement or military, i sometimes use slang when i am conveying a thought, or experience pertaining to firearms. bullets=cartridges, mag or clip=magazine, pipe=barrel, the hole=breech, scope=optics...you get the idea. if i say "magazine" around here...people think Playboy or munitions dump. sometimes i even refer to a rifle as a gun.
