    Default Friend from the UK came for a wedding.

    A family friend was married over the holidays.

    His aunt and her husband came from the UK to attend.

    At one of the many parties that week, I talked to him for a while. He was watching soccer 24 / 7 while his wife and other family went out to do what women before weddings do.

    I asked if he would be interested in a range day to which he readily accepted.

    I loaded 7 semi auto pistols, a couple revolvers, a couple AR's . an AK and a PA10 into the car with Bucu ammo and went to PMSC.
    Signed him in and went up to a private pistol bay of about 25 meters.

    He liked the glock 17 about the best with the 19, 23 and 32 pretty much in that order.
    The 9mm Shield and Kahr P9 were Ok and the Colt 1991A1 was really OK.

    The S&W model 66 with 38's was good but he only ran 6 full loads of .44mag through my Redhawk. That was enough for him. He lost the grip.

    He liked the AR #1. He liked the AK. He liked the PA10. He liked the second AR.

    We spent 4 hours. I fired 8 rounds.

    He said. "When my wife lets me come back, can we do this again?"
    It was a great time.

    We reviewed safety and a short manipulation session, only got slide bite once when I went back for more ammo. I told him it was a self correcting error.

    Opinions are like anal apertures. They all stink but mine.

    Picked it up for $350.
    In the box, styrofoam insert, with everything but the manual.
    2 of the mags were still in plastic

    That was a good day too.

    Another good friend inherited a Taurus 5 shot revolver in .38 and asked for help in how to manipulate it.

    Safety brief as always.
    Stance, grip, sight alignment and picture, trigger press, follow through.

    He did pretty good for never having shot a handgun before.

    It was only 100 rounds and 2 1/2 hours but he has already asked if we can go again.

    I just finished sizing / decapping 500 cases.
