I noticed the cap covering the suppressor threads on one of my TX22 was loose, might be something to watch is you own one. Also Winchester White box 230 Grain .45 ACP gave me a couple of poofs not healthy BANG's out of my G21. The rounds impacted about three inches low from point of aim. Kind of spooky.

Sold three more guns; an AR carbine, a JRC takedown carbine and Kahr CM9, along with ammo, magazines, the JRC's backpack, etc. All sold quite cheap, to people I know and care about.

Makes four guns sold this month, and following my recent practice of "sell two or three and buy one" plan to order a CMMG Resolute 9mm to accompany the Banshee that I've come to like so much.

That's not good. Other than their 'BEB' loadings being consistently slow & weak, I've had good luck with the white box stuff for decades. Wonder if it was just a one-time fluke or if they're letting quality control slide, in an effort to maximize production output during these panic times. Was it recently bought stuff?

I don't know the WW White box used to be the gold standard for store bought FMJ but now I'm beginning to have my doubts. I've had accuracy issues with it in .45ACP in the past and 9mm recently. At first I thought it was me being out of practice or the pistols fault. But now having my doubts.
Dang near makes me think about going back to reloading 9mm.

Pretty sure I bought it last December when the Hellcat was purchased, but I've bought so much ammunition in the last year I'm not sure. I'm going to shoot some more 9MM and .45 today specifically WWB.

Well I repaired and test fired the AR and the Glock
today. So far so good.
I also rezeroed my Mossberg 144 for close range as I've got some problem opossum that need to be popped.

kinda been a weird week for me. I posted the little device I made for stopping your sling from sliding off your shoulder while wearing a backpack on another site, and get slammed with people wanting to buy them. I've sold 60 of them so far...

I just designed and made them on a whim for myself...

Heading to the range in a few minute, do the weekly retired guy get together and later this evening I have a safety course to take at the new club I'm joining about 90 minutes south of home. They have the only ranges that go out to 600 yards in the south part of the province.

Tried to have our LGS order the Resolute for me, but all three versions (100, 200, and 300 series) are out of stock with no known availability date. But apparently the issue is lowers - they allegedly have uppers for all of them in stock - so I had the LGS cancel the standby order and just mail-ordered the Resolute upper direct form CMMG. I figure I'll use it on the lower of my backup-backup gun; it has the proprietary suppressor mount for the old M4-2000 and I rarely use it.

If the Resolute is as good as the Banshee, I'll be very happy with it.

Replaced the broken firing pin in my AR22 pistol this weekend. Have had the replacements for a couple weeks, but just got around to fixing it.

Also put up a couple pistol magazine holders; $16 for a two-pack on amazon. Itís an easy, neat way to store loaded magazines. Made for glock, but work for M&P as well, holding three mags.

Like them well enough that I was thinking about ordering a couple more; but then my oldest son came to visit Sunday and when he saw those he said, "Huh. That should be easy; hang on", and pulled out his phone. I had no idea what he was talking about until thirty seconds later he showed me a modelling diagram of an almost identical unit on some 3D printing site. So he's going to print us both some more. He said they'd take around twelve to fifteen cents each in material.

The remainder of the Winchester White Box .45 ACP fired with no problems as did another box of .45 and two boxes of 9mm. just a flukey two rounds. I bought a S&W Compact in .22. Plenty of .22 ammunition around with the exception being CCI. I'm going to do a bit of a shoot off with this bunch.

Took three more guns to put on consignment; a subcompact 9mm, a Freedom Arms "Casull's Improvement" .22LR mini-revolver, and a cheapy .32acp Davis Derringer. Won't get a lot for them, but wouldn't get anything out of keeping them either.
