    It was a nice day, so I took my Ruger LC9s to the range to run some Winchester 9mm. 115 gr. FMJ practice ammo through it. I shot at bowling pins, not paper targets. Most of my shots were right on, taking down pins with every shot at 10 ' away. I basically used one hand, and concentrated on the front site. I was very happy that I did so good......I had shot my Ruger SR22 at targets at the indoor range, only last week.

    I brought only one mag, and had to reload it, 4 times. I got a LuLa Uploader, which made reloading easier, but not being used to it, I was pretty slow. I need to do it more. I am very pleased with shooting the 9mm., it was very pleasant, no much recoil. So, I'll be shooting both the .22 and 9mm. Rugers quite a bit, in the future. That's what I bought them for.

    It is much more pleasant, than shooting .38 Spl. +P ammo, which has more recoil in a revolver, and is considerably LOUDER, too! I've been having problems with my ears ringing, from accidently shooting the .38 Spl. revolvers without my muffs on.......placed down around my neck, while reloading!!! Bob

    Both of the Rugers are nice to shoot. I was happy to see that the LC9s 9mm. is also a nice handling pistol, that's easy on the recoil. (being a gas operated semi-auto) They both fit in the same holster (one at a time, of course!), a Hume IWB with a clip on. They also conceal very well, since they are compact. Bob

    Spent the afternoon alone on my range sighting back in my 10 point X bow I just got back from the manufacturer for a recall for a trigger malfunction (Not only S&W has issues).... I like shooting it. has the full noise dampening on it and it's totally silent and extremely deadly with the expanding Grim Reaper heads on the bolts.

    Hopefully, the gun grabbers don't know about X bows......
