Started out it was almost warm, so my neighbor (step son-in-law) came over and we did a little shooting.
Nothing fancy, just threw some aluminum beer bottles out at about 80 yards and shot at em with my new AR, then we shot some pistols.
Shot his Glock 22, my S&W M&P Shield 40, S&W Victory 22 and my Springfield 1911.
We used paper plates for the pistol targets.
I don't think he had ever shot an AR before, and he was pretty excited at how accurate this one is. You know how .223 and 5.56 treat aluminum, you can hit a beer can and it won't even wiggle.
He said "I know I'm hitting it why won't it fall?" :funny:
We walked up and looked, and they had a hole for nearly every round fired.
Now he "needs" an AR :mrgreen:

We shot his Glock, and I gotta say I'm liking those big Glocks more every time I shoot one. It's like you can't miss with it.
My shield 40 was a different story. I had forgotten how uncomfortable that thing is to shoot. It even hurt my trigger finger, but to be fair, it was getting cold by that time and my hands were half froze.
The S&W Victory 22, as usual, pretty much shot itself. It's no trick to put 10 shots into a spot the size of a half dollar with it.
We shot the 1911, first time I've shot it in maybe 6 months.
The first round wasn't too bad, and Jerry shot it pretty well too.
Second round, I had 7 shots touching and 1 just a smidge to the left.

We still had some ammo left, but it was getting pretty cold, so we called it a day, packed it all up and went to the house.
Kyle had been craving liver and onions, so he bought some and talked Bunny into cooking it. I thought it smelled wonderful when we walked into the house.
Jerry had confided earlier that he hadn't tried liver since he was 9, and he had thrown up then because "It tasted like poop smells". Now that he's almost 50, he thought he might be able to do it.
We got a plate, and I picked a big ol' hunk of liver slathered in onions, got some mashed potatoes and liver gravy and sat down to eat.
Kyle filled his plate and I told Jerry to grab a plate.
He picked up his plate, looked dubiously at the liver and took a piece the size of a hangnail.
He then set his plate on the table, turned green and headed for the bathroom.
He came back out, sat down, gave his hangnail sized piece of liver to Kyle and tasted the gravy......back to the bathroom he went.
Kyle and I were laughing so hard I nearly sprayed mashed potatoes through my nose, and poor Bunny just looked crushed that someone didn't like her liver...Also, all the gagging made her lose her appetite.
Jerry came back, scooped his potatoes and gravy onto Kyle's plate, got some new potatoes and put butter on them.
We got through the rest of the evening without incident, and all in all, it was a good day.
On a side note, I ate so much liver I was peeing funny colors. :hmmm:

Glad you mentioned the G22 Husk. It's my favorite glock. In my hand it feels almost as good as a 1911, but lighter by 75%.

I like the Glock 22 but it'll never hold a candle to a 1911. Wish I could a been there for the liver and onions.

That's why I have 2 1911's, 1 G22 and no G20's. But the G29 has a grip like a G22.

I suggested we have liver and onions for a meal while at her mom and dads ONE time a long time ago.
When her mom left the room, the rest of the family ganged up and beat the 5hit out of me...

I haven't had liver and onions for many years... )-:

I haven't had liver and onions in decades either. I was never a real big fan of the texture but I liked the taste. I'll try or eat just about anything if I can get past the smell however. And sometimes, with some foods, the bad smell is the only thing that makes the food taste good. :?
Textures are my big put-off. Liver, as I remember it, always had a grainy, sandy texture. Maybe it wasn't cooked the best? :dunno: Brown onions over low to medium heat with a small amount of bacon fat or lard, wet liver chunks with milk and roll in GP flour and fry with onions till done. :dunno: Got's to be a better way I spose...Regardless, can't afford liver anyway. I eat arm roasts cut into steaks, pork steaks, and pork sausage mostly. Can't afford hamburger anymore since it's over $5 a pound now. Well, I CAN afford it, I just don't want to. I want the most bang for the buck in almost all things so I buy what I consider good low quality cuts and cook to suit. Tender meat is so seriously overrated. Although it is tender and easy to chew I see no reason to buy it for those attributes. :dunno: When I go to the 'cook your own' steak house I always get the 24oz sirloin. It's tender. My wife always gets a ribeye or New York strip, they's tender too. Mine always has more flavor but she pays just as much for less than half the meat. :hmmm:
