Comment by Reader Velocette about our little TDSA excursion:
“That Winchester High Wall is the class act of the lot, unless you were enjoying an 1873 Colt or a P 35 Hi Power”
Not quite an 1873 Colt, but we did have a 1980 Colt Python 6″ (.357 Mag), not mine, alas for I own one not:
…and yes, a Browning High Power:
…and sundry 1911 variants, of course:
…as well as several .22 pistols and revolvers, and a few other .357 Mag/.38 Spec revolvers.
Also on hand, a Winchester 1894 lever rifle (.30-30):
…a Taurus (Winchester copy) Model 63 ( .22 LR):
…the aforementioned Browning High Wall (.45-70 Gov):
…and lastly, my M1 Carbine (which Doc Russia managed to break; Mr. FM’s comment: “It survived WWII and Korea, but not one range session with Doc”):
There were other guns, most of them high-tech / gadget-loaded 9mm and .223 EVIL BLACK RIFLES WITH SILENCERRRRRRRS, but of them we will not speak.
I can’t believe that we blew through so much ammo, but considering that firing commenced at about 10:30am and the guns finally fell silent at 3:30pm, perhaps it’s not all that surprising.
In conclusion, I cannot say enough good things about TDSA and its owner Len Baxley. If you haven’t ever been there, you should. Mr. FM has been there twice (two separate trips Over Here), and says it’s the most fun he’s ever had, on both occasions. If you want to try the place out, let me know and I’ll give you advice on what to take and not take so you can have a great time.
