Everybody likes hate Remington's handguns, but I have three from them I like. A stainless R1 1911, a RM380, and the much maligned R51. All of them have proven absolutely reliable.

I just bought a Franchi Affinity 3, 12 gauge, 26 inch barrel. I intend to use it to dispatch many birds and perhaps some other game. I have found a few boxes of target shells and some 00 buckshot, which I bought for a decent price. I bought one box of tungsten turkey shells that will only be fired when a turkey is within dispatching range. At $10/round, they will not be used as practice rounds. 8O

And no, I haven’t found any lead turkey shot. I guess turkey season was the wrong time to look.

I have a stainless Remington R1 1911 as well. It's accurate and reliable.

There’s a small group of retired guys I run into at the range now and then. I doubt they shoot a dozen rounds each over a couple of hours, but they all seem to have such fun just being buds with guns it always makes me smile.

A 1911 is just the right size and weight; just like a SA army in 45 LC.

Dare I stop by the gun shops this week? I haven't been there in a couple weeks. I bet the crazies are even crazier now.

We’re shooting clays once a week again, but several in our group can’t join us because they’re out of ammunition and can’t find any.

I’ve got enough to last a few months.

Hope this ammo shortage resolves soon, and also that reloading supplies show up again.
