    Those of you that have followed me; since last December I have bought several new firearms, a EAA Windicator .357 magnum, Marlin 60 .22lr rifle, Ruger 22/45 Mark III .22lr pistol, Sccy CPX-2 & DPMS Oracle .223/5.56 AR-15 rifle. Finally on November 1st I made it to the range, for the first time since last year. The EAA shot flawlessly and was OK on accuracy at approximately 7-10 yards, which for a snub nose, isn't bad. The Marlin was dead accurate with almost every round hitting which in a 1/2" of dead center and shot flawlessly, other than one or two rounds not ejecting, which wasn't bad since I shot 118 rounds through it and .22's are known to be kind of finicky. The Ruger was fairly decent on accuracy as well and I shot 110 rounds through it and it only had like 1 or 2 hiccups, nothing major. The Sccy as usual was pretty good on accuracy.......the only hiccup I ran in to is one of the mags kept jamming on me due to a problem with the spring. Haven't had time to call Sccy yet about it but I'm sure they'll handle it with no problem. Other then that I shot a little over 100 rounds with and had no problems with the gun itself and it was just as much pleasure shooting it, as I remember my last Sccy being. On the DPMS I shot 180 rounds through it, it wasn't very accurate as I do not have no back up iron sites, only a red dot and we couldn't get it dialed in worth a damn. However it shot good, the only problem was 1 or 2 rounds getting tangled and had to use some efforrt to get them free'd but for the amount of rounds fired for the first time shooting, you have to expect a couple minor hiccups. I also shot my Smith & Wesson .32 S&W long cartridge revolver that I've shot before and is an older weapon for me. It shot flawlessly as usual and for a snub nose is fairly accurate.

    Well after I got home from the range, I ended up ordering a bore sighter and it came in......and I pretty much it got it all dialed in now......so when I do make it to the range next the AR will be ready.
