    Tannerite videos have a deep and enjoyable rabbit hole on Youtube...

    I only shot the 4oz ones but even those obliterated an old TV.

    Damn, I wish I lived in this guy's county... My sheriff has a similar attitude but is not as vocal.

    Sheriff Judd: "If you're not afraid of a gun, get one"

    This ain't the first time Ol' Grady has said something that'll enrage the snowflake-types:

    Nice. Need a stock cuff for maximum carnage, IMO.

    With the magazine extension it holds eight. The additional fourteen stored in the sling and sidesaddle are sufficient backup.

    You can never have enough ammo. Especially, for social work.

    Flip over the shells in the side saddle and you'll have a easier time reloading. If that's a Mesa carrier (which it looks like it is) the elastomer in the band can lose tension over time if left loaded. Pulling out the ammo for a day or so lets it reset itself.

    The sling looks like a bitch to load from.

    Acquired another firearm today. This seems to happen more often now that my kid has a steady income. Today's purchase was a single action Pietta .45 six gun.

    70 cents every pull of the trigger. Glad someone else paid for the ammo.

    Shooting a single action is fun.

    Yep. $35 for a box of 50. A couple friends reload their own. Should be able to cut that price about in half.

    Finally got the gold bead - hope to try it out next weekend.

    To me it is much more visible. The sphere seems to catch and reflect light regardless where it is coming from - as long as it's anywhere but in front of me.

    I've never seen a sphere like that, mine is more like a large diameter fiber optic. I wonder how well yours will stand up to every day carry, something I can't do here. The pic below looks likes mine, got the set from Novak.

    I like the beads as they just seem to catch light from side angles better. Been a few days now and no noticeable issues. My holster has a sight rail so it's not like it drags or touches anything.

    There is a 1/2" stud on the back that is going through the original sight base hole where the fo rod was. I roughened the stud and bedded it in with an epoxy compound.

    The bead can unscrew off the stud, so if it dulls or tarnishes I can just screw a new one onto it. Blue loctite should keep it from coming loose until then.

    I'll just see how it goes and maybe try tritium if it is a failure. But in daylight, tritiums are no better than the fo.

    None of it makes a shit worth of difference any more for me since I can't see the fuckers anyway. I'll just try to point in the general direction of what I'm trying to aim at, the blind squirrel still gets a nut every once in a while. Glasses seem like a huge pain in the ass, I need to have a hard look at some of those surgery options.

    Right there with you. My distance vision is fine, up close I need readers. All my range drills are without glasses, low hold to aim and fire position. At least now, when the pistol comes up I can see a glint against a colored target rather than a black blob. Hopefully get some rounds in Saturday.

    Assholes at my job are starting to fuck with me, asking when I'm going to just get glasses, calling me an old man. I'm only 45. Same shit happened to my dad at the same age and I'm sure his father before him. Can't do shit about genetics, other than surgery or glasses.

    I rarely "aim" a pistol, I do a lot of "pointing" anything more than 25 yards away from me is safe

    Ok, I'm going to be the safety Nazi, are those occupied buildings in the background? Yes I know that they are probably a mile away in that flat wasteland but not having a backstop makes me twitch

    If you're ever forced to use the firearm in self defense, a "black blob" is probably exactly what you'll see.

    The old ATA Trap fields at Vandalia Ohio. The Grand American was shot there until 2005 - 1.5 miles of trap fields that wrapped around and along one runway of the Dayton Int'l Airport. I shot it in the 90's (can't find a pic and that kickable isn't me - just the only pic I could find via the Google) - it was a hoot shooting clays as planes landed beyond that fence...
