Since that it's American Independence Day, I've decided to shoot 100% American guns and calibers. Specifically, the wheelguns (Colt, SW and Ruger) in .38 Special, .357 Magnum and .44 Magnum.

I toyed with the idea of shooting a USA made Beretta 92FS, but then it is of Italian design and the 9mm is a Euro caliber. By golly, it's American Independence Day and not International Day, so I think that I will stick with the wheelguns.

100% Springfield Armory M1 Garand, it just can't get anymore American than that.

Springfield Armory as in the US Army arsenal or Springfield Armory as in the poseur importer?

I'm shooting fireworks. If I get drunk enough, I may go shoot my 92fs in the air.

No fireworks here! they are illegal anyway in my city, the police usually look the other way around here(especially the officer across the street). But since the state is on fire there is supposed to be no tolerance. So, maybe the remington 870 or the stag arms.

US Rifle Cal 30. M1. Springfield Armory. S/N 58347xx Circa 1955. There isn't anything poser about this Garand. If there was I wouldn't own it.

I got one of the M&P Shields from a member here the other day. I might go shoot it some more. Also, picked up a 92fs. Hmmm, maybe I better go load up some more 9mm ammo

I always go shooting on the Fourth, kind of a tradition with me. Gonna be hot, but the range is covered, so at least I'm not baking in the sun.
I'll be taking an assortment of US firearms.:cool:

I don't care where it came from, where it was designed, where it was built, but shoot anything you can get your relatively "free" hands on, because you can, and it's the "right" thing to do!

And, yes, "liberals" was the proper answer...and funny as heck too.

Oh, and if I shoot RWS (Swiss, not the "other" kind) ammo, through my Smith 3913, am I driving a hybrid? Oh, gawd, no!

Not so much what gun but I am shooting some Tannerite I bought especially for the occasion. Bought some one pounders and a four pound can. That way I can share the fun with the rest of the county. But I'll shoot it with my T/C Encore in .223.

Then some early american Winchester lever guns and some Ruger single action just to remember the Old West.

Does shooting a tazer count??? I gotta work at the jail next 2 nights.
Daughter and I are going out Target shooting, start off w/the .22, 223, .380, then the glock 26. Hopefully no fire works at the jail.

If you decide to shoot outdoors be careful, especially if you're in a drought-stricken area where fires can easily spark.

I'm shooting fireworks.

We're under a burn ban so no fireworks.

I guess I shoot a 1970's era "Made in the USA" S&W Model 15 .38 Special 4" blue, a "Made in the USA" Ruger Super Blackhawk .454 Casull and a "Made in the USA" Ruger 10/22.
