Range tomorrow

Tomorrow early headed out for a day at the range. Will take a few "worthless" guns and the M1A. No hacknsawn dremeled bullets.

I'm watching the weather forecast, we have a lot of overhead cover expected. I want to break out my chrono, which is not a good thing

I'm jealous. My rimfire plate rack is supposed to be delivered today but it'll probably be Sunday before I get a chance to try it out.

From Custom Metal Products:
https://www.custommetalprod.com/shoo...ber-plate-rack

I bought it off amazon:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1



$210 (plus shipping I assume) from the mfr website, but only $200 including shipping at amazon if you have a prime membership.

The plates are only 4" in diameter, so it's smaller than the picture looks, overall is just 3' wide & 2' high give or take. I have a fair number of plain old hanging plates and one reduced-size silhouette, but no plate rack. Figured this would be a fun and cheap one to start with since centerfire pistol plate racks are goofy expensive, mostly running $800-$1200.

One of our guys is a graduate of the big welding school in Oklahoma, and I've spoken with him about possibly making centerfire pistol plate racks for both of us. Basically, I buy the material for two, he provides the labor & makes them, and we'd both have one pretty cheap.

You should get years of enjoyment out of that CMP product. They are a class act, but boy does delivery cost $uck when you are in another country!
