In the pen holder on my desk: one expended 7.62 NATO shell casing. Headstamp PMJ (Korea) 06.
Even weirder is that I haven't been on a range with 7.62 weapons since December, 2005.
The Russians have a battle in their WWII history books that nobody else does...the Battle of Volgograd.
I wonder...do the Turks call it the capture of Constantinople, or Istanbul?
National Ammo Day
I was a day late for National Ammo Day (yeah, and two with this post), because I already planned to go to the Fun Show in Raleigh and buy ammo.
I was successful in selling one of my extraneous K31s, and with the money bought ammo.
From Georgia Arms:
-100 rounds of .30 carbine 110 gr soft points. I haven't seen these on their website, only at the gunshow.
-50 rounds of .380 ACP 95 gr FMJ
From a new (at least to me) company called Sillman Cartridge Company
-50 rounds .380 ACP 95 gr JHP
-50 rounds .45 ACP 185 gr JHP. My Springer Champion so far doesn't like Georgia Arms, so I'm looking for something that it does like.
I'll post a review on the Sillman .45 JHPs once I get a chance to take them to the range. (The .380 is for the Mrs, and she's too pregnant to shoot.)
The Difference Between 6 and 36
The December issue of Dillon's Blue Press was sitting on the table. Junior looks at it and asks:
"Why does that lady have a stuffed ninja turtle?"
Me: "She has a stuffed ninja turtle?"
