70 rounds were fired during this quick (but fun) range session.
10-rounds per stage. A round of 125-grain Winchester Silvertip was chambered from a separate Wilson mag as each of the other 9-round mags were used in turn during the stages of this range session.
Yeah, yeah, yeah I know that there are many brands of allegedly reliable 10-round mags produced nowadays for the Colt 1911 .38 Super but I'm too damn old and too damn stubborn to ever get over the idea that the Colt .38 super magazines were divinely intended to be 9-rounds; "9 SHALL BE THINE!"
This is one of my very few "forever guns." It will be with me until my end of time and then go to my Daughter or my Granddaughter. Most of the rest of the collection will (hopefully) be sold beforehand. My health is good but I'm at the age when the males with my bloodline start deteriorating; I'm a notorious planner / organizer and like to take care of business well ahead of schedule.
Dats 'nuff said 'bout dat sheee_it. Now, let's do some fun gunning! It's good for the soul.
Magazine brands and ammo brands used today are as follows:
2 x 9-round Ed Brown mags with Aguila 130 grain ball
(I really am getting to like the Ed Brown .38 super 9-round mags; will need more.)
2 x 9-round Wilson mags with 125 grain Winchester Silvertips
1 x 9-round Wilson mag with 80 grain Glaser Safety Slugs
(I own 4 of the Wilson 9-round .38 Super mags, like 'em but they are no longer made)
2 x 9-round Colt mags with Aguila 130 grain ball
(Colt .38 super mags are "meh")
