Jawja Crackers

I paid a visit to catfish today. The weather was nice and we figured that the only way to improve sunshine and blue sky was to generate a thick cloud of gunsmoke in the air. So, we did.

Cat has a shooting range in his back yard. Between us, we must have fired several hundred rounds, most of it from .22 target pistols. Of course, I had to throw some .38, 9mm and .45 short ammo into the mix, too. (The .45 shorts were for the double-barreled Leinad derringer I don't own. I can't hit shit outside 10 feet with that thing, but it's LOUD as hell.)

I got to shoot Cat's new toy, too: a Talon 9-shot .22 revolver. I'd never seen a 9-shot revolver before. We also had my a Ruger Mark II 10-shot semi-auto and Cat's Browning semi-auto to round out the .22 selection. Every one of those guns is damned accurate, but I did a lot better with the semi-autos than I did with the revolver. (I'm DEADLY at 30 feet with that Ruger. I put two rounds through the same hole more than once today.)

If you are one of the lucky folks coming to Cat's oyster roast/low country boil/rib barbecue on January 3rd, you can shoot these very same guns for yourself. We'll have plenty of targets and ammunition.

Gun smoke will serve as an appetizer before we pig out on the food.


I'm scared! You won't let me shoot anyone will ya?

I never was much of a shot with a handgun. I qualified with the .38 Cobat Masterpiece many years ago but all I had to do was hit the dam target fife out of six to do it. Always was a crack shot with a rifle though

Rob -

I have a Bond Arms Derringer - I use .410 loads in it - gives a little better chance to hit things beyond 10 feet - it is a blast shooting it - the .410's actually kick more than .45's do out of that thing..

Did my best shooting with the 20 mm gatling gun, when it worked. LOL.
