Camping 2016

Back from camping for a week on the Upper Clackamas River in Mt. Hood Nat'l Forest here in Oregon.  Got our old spot, used to camp there all summer long - was like coming home again.  Weather was good, 2 days of light rain, all in all, great trip.  My 2nd cousin John is 75 now, still whips my ass at dominos and backgammon (actually we play acey deucey) -- and still hikes like a mountain goat!

Really nice place you have there. The Glock is for self defence or final shot? As we all know, light rain is good for hunting ;)

Self defense and target practice - no hunting in designated camping areas and vice versa.  Went up to the gravel pit for target shooting with the Glock as well as my 45 Colt Henry Repeater, the Mossberg 500A 12g and the little S&W .38 hammerless backup (model 642-2).  Lost a $20 magazine... I thought one of my 6 Glock mags fell under the passenger seat in my car, packed to the roof with gear and impossible to retrieve, but it must have fell under the car.  Oh well. (dammit!)

Went through several hundred rounds, tons of fun.

The .38 special needs some work tho, trigger pull is way too heavy but is likely because it's a hammerless J-Frame revolver designed to come out of a pocket, not a holster, and the heavy trigger pull may be for safety.  Since I have an inside-the-pants concealment holster for it, I'm thinking of taking it to a gun smith and having them give it more of a hair trigger.  With a 1.8 inch barrel, round can be far off target with just a little sway in that heavy ass trigger pull (not that this thing is meant to hit something farther than you can spit, but still... accuracy is important).

I agree, accuracy is important but I would not dare it myself, because of a bad experience many years ago:black_eye:
