    My local range wouldn't allow any steel bullets. They wouldn't let me use my old S&B steel (not just core) 9mm rounds, even though they have reloadable brass.

    I only buy Wolf, and other related cheap ammo, for my SKS.
    Trust me. I know what I am doing.

And save my more expensive rounds for anywhere that won't let me use Wolf. Depending on how much you go, and where you go, it may not have been a mistake. Sell me your ammo :P
    I was at Burro Canyon up in Azusa Canyon. It's the nearest outdoor range where I can shoot my M4. They don't allow anything steel because they say it can spark and start a fire, which makes sense with all the dry brush around.

    Speaking of my local outdoor range -- I wanted a reactive target to shoot at, and since they won't allow steel plates because of the fire hazard, I designed my own target. It cost about $20 for materials and took less than an hour to assemble. It held up surprisingly well to about 300 rounds being shot at it, and the clay pigeons make a cheap reactive target. I got several complements from other guys at the range. If anyone is interested I'll post some instructions, but it should be pretty straightforward from the attached pics. It worked great!

    That's pretty neat. Just line up the clay and unload. Is the foam there to hold the targets or as a ledge for each shelf? I'd assume a wood ledge would be subject to splintering from being hit.

    Yep, 4 clays per row. That's foam insulation cut in half and stapled on with a staple gun. It acts as a shelf and holds the clays against the piece of wood above them. I was going to use wood at first but you hit it right on the head -- minimize use of wood. The wood didn't splinter too much though, at least not as much as I thought. I'd think I can take it out for another 10 trips to the range before rebuilding it.

    If you live in San Diego, every time I go into southern california gun, they have a bunch of .45 acp. since I am only currently looking for a 1911 and don't actually have one, I have no idea what the price it. But it has been there damn near every time I walk in.

    PS: thats a cool target thing you got there :)

    They might have it and maybe I shouldn't be making this comment because I don't know them... but if they have it, please please please don't pay a gouged price for it. IMO anything over $20 for 50 rounds is gouging. Some may say to buy cheaper, but I guess I can swing $20/50 for .45 given the demand right now.

    ja, I don't own a 45, so I have no ammo for it. Just saying most of the time I walk in there, they have a pile of it.
    I do mainly shotgunning, so I go to a guy at the miramar skeet range to get my reloading supplies or to buy shells. Never asked if he has centerfire cartridges, but I could if you want.

    Just swapped out the factory bar-and-dot sights with TruGlo fiber optic sights on my Sig P220.

    I bought the sights at Midwayusa for $60. I also bought the sight pusher tool at Midway so I can do my own sights. It's worth the cost since I have a bunch of Sig pistols and probably will have more.

    It was a bitch to remove the sights. Put a drop of penetrating oil on the sights before you try to move them. It's much easier that way.

    I haven't shot the pistol yet with the new sights. They seem to be excellent day light sights. Not so well for low light though.

    The one thing bad about these TruGlo sights is that they sit very high, leaving a gap between the sights and the slide. I'll try to put up some pictures.

    $115 is for the tritium sights. I bought these cheap fiber optic sights:

    One thing I don't like about tritium sights is that they need to be replaced after a few years.

    Heh. Was shooting 5-stand the other day and after I pulled the trigger and saw the clay break...I saw something fly off to the side. It was part of my red site. :(

    The same type that I have? Can you ship it back to TruGlo and ask for a replacement?

    Here are some pictures of the new TruGlo sights on my P220. I love this Canon camera. The macro looks so nice.
