ROFL Brady Rating

Read this today on the Brady Site:

“Since Washington does not require Brady criminal background checks on all firearm sales including those at gun shows, gun traffickers don’t need to leave the state to funnel illegal guns to felons and gang members,” said Heidi Yewman, spokesperson for the Washington Million Mom March.


Yeah right Heidi. I bought a gun this past week, and damn if it wasn't to funnel it to felons and gang members! Wahoo.

What a moron. Washington scores close to the bottom, but not close enough for this "common sense" guy.

In another vein, went to the range today and shot my P3AT, A Sig 380 rental and my Glock 26 in the LEO bay. Did repeated drills drawing from concealment and damn, if I didn't put most rounds right where they needed to be. Dead zombies.

As I mentioned, I bought a new gun last week. I've been looking for a Kel-Tec SU-16 for awhile now and I finally gave up and ordered it online thru gun broker. Cost me about $500 for the A model. Nice.

Should be here next week (too long), but acceptable because I bought it for an Appleseed clinic I'm going to with my boy in May. I'm so excited, as I'm mainly a pistol shooter and I really need to get better with my rifle. So now I have a .223 with a bunch of Magpul Pmags coming my way. W00t to that.

I bought the rifle because I figured I'd have to have a second rifle for my son anyhow, so instead of buying another .22 rifle (my Henry US Survival Rifle just wouldn't work for Appleseed) I splurged and bought the .223 I've been thinking of.

I'll pop an optic on it, maybe side mount a mini red dot and smile alot. I'm very excited.

Took the P3AT to the range today.

It fired fine (as it always has) but it still stuttered a bit chambering that first round. It was really doing it before, often to the point of not chambering the round at all, but now you can just feel a slight hiccup as the slide slams closed.

Huh. I guess its an improvement. Will I trust it? Not sure yet.

The repair order said that the slide/barrel was replaced. By looking I can't tell what was replaced or not (should have subtly tagged both I suppose).

PS. I rented a Glock 21 and XD in .45. Shot both. Liked the trigger on the XD a bit better.

Kel-Tec Back


So in January I get fed up with the problems feeding rounds into my little Kel-Tec P3AT, and I finally get around to sending it in (and by get around I mean buy another carry gun).

Off it went. And I waited till April 1st to get it.

That is quite a while to have it in for warrantee work. I'm used to camera gear and computers that are in and out inside of a week generally. And a lot more complex.

Anywho, its back and it seems to feed fine. I'll take it to the range and try it out next week. Funny enough, in this time of ammo shortages, I have a bunch of .380 ammo sitting around and only this one gun to feed it thru (and it isn't a range gun, thats for sure). I do miss its size compared to the Glock 26 I've been carrying, but I'm not sure I'm going to regularly carry it again. I just got used to that nice big Glock and its promise of 9mm punch.

It will probably be the deep concealment gun, when I can't get away with the 26. I guess we'll see.

After shooting and loving the Sub-2000 this week, I'm really looking forward to adding a Su-16c to the mix sometime this year...
