Range Report 2

Took my new Taurus Millenium .40 to the range this morning, and I put another 60 rounds through it. I am practicing for mt CHL test, and here in Texas, you have to fire 20 rounds each from 3 and 7 yards, and 10 from 5 yards. Your score, which must be 175, is based on a points system. The center target is worth 5 points, just outside that is 4 points, and hitting the target gets you 3 points. I hit all 60 shots in the target, 14 shots were in the 4 point range and 40 were in the 5 point area, including 16 of 20 from 3 yards, I missed low the first three shots getting the sighting down, the gun shoots a tad high it seems. Overall much better than my first trip to the range. The gun has a little recoil, but is smooth, and easy to handle. Here is the target I am practicing on

Ron Paul has lost every ounce of my respect

I have never fully agreed with Congressman Paul, although in some areas I respected and agreed with his positions. Even in those areas, including foreign policy, where I thought he was off base, I at least respected him. That respect, though, is now gone forever. And it is not coming back, not after Paul wrote this

 

Former Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul said Monday that the shooting death of a U.S. Navy Iraq War veteran was the consequence of his life as a one of the military’s most celebrated snipers.

In a message sent from his certified Twitter account, the former congressman from Texas said that ‘he who lives by the sword dies by the sword.’

Here is the Tweet
