Thursday Retard Range Report

 




According to the weather this is the last of the good warm days. After today, the temps start to dive and it will be time for toques and gloves soon. Today, it's shirt sleeves and flop hats. I was gonna take out my AR - I built a top tier target gun on the AR platform only to have our faggot faced swine minister try to ban them... and it looks like the provinces have told him to shove all his bans up his ass - and in true canadian fashion nobody really knows what the law is. But the rifle range was corked with last minute retards sighting their guns in for deer and moose season - the kind of guys that shoot a few shells a year and are on the same box of ammo they bought three years ago. I dial all my long guns in for two hundred metres and memorize my holdovers. Rightly or wrongly, I fancy myself a rifleman and a chit house pistol shooter as well.





I have never shot at one of these before. I had a mag and a half for my sweet little target gun and figured i'd give ol' Paper Pete here the business. It's a smaller than standard target but at least it is more reasonable than the idiotic official IPSC silhouettes. Those are unrealisticly large in my opinion. I dumped both my mags at the guy in front as fast as possible and missed the head and throat once or twice out of a dozen or 15 shots. The groups went into about 5~6". 

Remember awhile back? Some failed liberal social experiment walked into a food court with a black rifle intending to misbehave. Some other kid shot him 16 or 18 times in the chest and put his lights out before the perp could express his disgruntlement with society. It was my contention at the time that the marksmanship was good - but no accident. The hero of the hour was not a gun god, merely a very skilled shooter. OyTube lit up with any number of pikers and stubfarts that easily duplicated the feat on videeyah.

Aaaaaand of course, I got swarmed by the usual suspects. I wasn't trying to take anything away from the hero - but in point of fact, that boy didn't do anything that you or I can't. He just practiced often and drilled hard - and his skills and hands did the rest when it counted. General Aesop got one of my arms, Comrade Misfit got the other one, and they held them behind me while some other fag beat me up from the front! "You're a blowhard, Filthie! You're just an envious, retarded blow hard!!!" I wonder how long it took him to figure that out? HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR!!!!

Now, there's a few caveats here and I know they won't matter to stupid people - but I will lay them out for the genuine gunnies out there. I was shooting a.22 target gun and not a .40 cal subcompact with full blown self defense loads. I was shooting from 25m and not 40 paces. I haven't been shooting in a month and a half. But it doesn't matter. In that same situation that kid was in, with a larger gun... I would have done much the same - and so would you if you put in the time that I have. You younger kids with brighter eyes and steadier nerves would probably do better. I might blow a few more shots than the kid, did - age and slowing reflexes and declining sight are a fact of life. But for you younger fellas - put in your trigger time, and have no fear or worries - unless a skunk has the drop on you, your skills acquired by hard practice will do the rest for you when you need them. I may be a blow hard and a gas bag but in this, I am correct. The friggin US Marines are the best shooters on the planet, and one of the most feared opponents. Those guys are trained on the range the same way you are. When they go into the soup, they almost always do the same thing to their goblins the same way that hero in the food court did. Good shooting is no accident. I am undoubtedly the biggest retard on the firing line but on this... I am correct.

Today though... I was surrounded by bigger retards than I am! I borrowed Bruce's target for this little exercize. The taped over big holes all over it are his. I literally watched him as he missed that target by as much as three feet - but to hear him talk, he can take your head off with his trusty 9mm out to a hundred yards! HAR HAR HAR!!! I like Bruce, he's a nice guy... but when it comes to guns I just agree and shut my big trap. I walked over to another fella who had a nice hand built gun case. He was a special military policeman of some sort with the Canadian navy. According to him, they carried Sig P226s. I dunno if that is true or not but whatever. He claims they were so elite, that they couldn't get by with those 50 year old beater HiPowers that standard Canadian squaddies get. One of his handguns was a chinese copy of the Sig gun from Norinco. Now... I have experience with Norinco. I have seen others have experiences with Norinco's. Anybody with a stitch of sense won't touch those things with a 10 foot pole. Quality is all over the place with the the chinks that make them. I have seen some run like tops, and I actually saw one come apart. My own was a POS and I sold it for peanuts just to get rid of it. He was the nicest guy to talk to, but if you want to talk about blow-hards... his deer gun was a black plastic Ruger camp carbine in 9mm. With a $30.00 scope on it. And the old stubfart wouldn't shut up! But he was an expert on guns like Bruce. I almost fell over laughing after the shoot when Bruce started grousing about what a gas bag the old boy was! HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR!!! Needless to say, those guys couldn't hit the broad side of a barn from 7 ft. away with a handful of gravel!!! Mind you... Aesop, Misfit, and whoever that other retard was are probly in the same boat! HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR!!!!

Generally I have no interest in big paper targets. I shot about 75 rounds at the small rocks and dirt clumps on the backstop berm and had a ball. It has been a long time since my last shoot - too long. I am a little rusty... but still confident in my ablities, rightly or wrongly. If you shoot like Bruce and the mystery cop at the range... you can fix that. The same way the hero in the food court did, the same way the Marines do. Put in your trigger time! You'll always be glad that you did.

  1. Mr. Filthie- it sounds like your retard pals were all at the range that day. A 9mm deer gun? That is stupid. I am no proponent of over-gunning, but that is some journeyman level dumbass. Another issue... shooting at human silhouette is demented.

  2. I have been very lax about it since the gun club closed and people moved in around me. I need to find another place to practice I guess but good for you it is important.

    You should be able to shoot a happy face with that.

  4. That Norinco story.... Back in Houston in the early 90's, gangs would wait until dad and mom were home in the early evening. They would bust in, tie up the kids and parents and make off with the money and jewelry. Lots of injuries and not just to the parents. I decided not on my watch. I saved up for several months, and bought a Norinco 1911A1 for $215.00 (wholesale plus 10%). Money was very tight back then. It was one of the cheapest pistols available. I practiced hard. I reloaded for it. and practiced. I worked on my draw, and it was on my hip from the minute I walked into the house after work. It ate everything I could feed it. Even those 200 grain flying ashtrays CCI-Speer had. The locking lugs on top of the barrel rounded over at about 25,000 rounds. She was a shooter. And she fit my hand like it grew there. I've read they were all over on quality, too. But my baby was a low 5 digit serial. I figured the quality was in the first boatload, then it went sideways. I wish I could hold her again. I called her old ugly. Always there and ready to go. I could hit the target on the second round at 100 yards. It wasn't hard to do either back when I was a young man.

    1. That is the hell of the, STxAR. You can get one that runs like a champ, every day, all day long. And the next one you buy will be a complete rip-off even at bargain basement prices and may even be dangerous. In Canada, every day, we learn what chink manufacturing is all about. To them, industry standards are a suggestion at best. Here in the oil patch, we learned to hire extremely competent QA/QC inspectors and to never trust the chinks on critical components. I actually used to be a proponent of Norinco 20 years ago and thought they'd be a great alternative to companies run by corporate sea gulls and gougers - like Remington, at the time. Or any of the Euros. But eventually I saw the light.

      There are some things the chinks do very well. But their learning curve is straight up, as are their rising quality.

  5. A 1/4" steel plate has a nice ring to it at 300 yards. 3/8" for 100-150yds.

  6. Those Ruger MkII Targets are fine guns to shoot. Great accuracy, but a tad heavy for carrying in the field, looking for a rabbit to whack for some hassenpfeffer. I have a stainless Target exactly like the pictured (5 1/2" bull barrel), but mine is scoped.

    STxAR's 1911 had a brother that I purchased back in early 90's I think. Same result - not barn burner accuracy but very serviceable and for the price, could not be beat. The factory grip panels sucked donkey member, those were quickly replaced with Pachmayr finger gripped synthetic. A keeper for the south Texas border region.

    The only other Norinco I had was their Browning ATD .22 take-down clone. It isn't a bad gun either. Less than a C-note back in late 1980's, brand new in box.

    Sorry for ramble, gun talk is fun for me.

    1. Me too, A. I like big guns, and don't mind weight. I don't carry here in Canada, but if I ever have too, I will work around the weight issue.

      I have a Ruger single six with a 2X scope on it and I am just torn on optics for handguns. That thing will dump a dixie cup full of water at 75~100 yards all day long - I do the triggers on all my handguns and the little Ruger shines because of it. But... damn, that thing is cumbersome. But man... it sure is nice being able to seriously threaten the tin cans and dirt clods at 100... :) My only regret is that I did not stock up on mags for it. I only have two... but I tend to always have a minimum of six for all my guns.

    2. I put on a Hogue finger swell grip mo ricky tick, too. That made it perfect. Young eyes didn't mind the military sights at all. And at night, the slab sided slide made Kentucky windage an option.

  7. Did you see his piece on Bracken? I've been bringing that up to him for a very long time and this was the best he could come up with? Hahahaha! He's being very careful to not lose what's left of his base. If he goes full retard on Bracken he loses the military boomers. Navy seal and all. So he soft punched him in the dick and moves on with memes and other gay nonsense. He's a fucking loser. Actually both him and the book salesman Bracken are fucking losers. It's fun to watch though.

    1. I actually like Bracken. When this idiocy started, Bracken and that Spanish kid on JewTube did a spectacular job in summing up the ins-and-outs of the conflict and the realities involved. It was a stellar presentation. But… like our Californian General…Bracken is prone to alarmism and occasional histrionics. at the end of the day… he has to sell books, I guess.

      Time changes everything and being current and relevant as you age gets harder and harder. Emotions intrude on the thought process… I have it on good authority that you and I may turn into old geezers too, Hedge!😉
