(of course, i should really be in the habit of slingshotting the slide back into batter during a reload anyway, one could argue)

    the XD series is not bad, but one thing i've never liked is the muzzle safety... correct me if i'm wrong, but if something is pressed right up against the front of the gun, does it still fire? if i'm struggling with someone and the gun is right in their ribs, i don't want to have to step back before i get a round off.
    Since, you like the H&K USP-40 Compact, have you checked out the H&K P-2000 and/or P-2000SK? The P-2000 series seems slimmer than the USP Compact.

    Please tell me your M1 Carbine modifications are all legit, if not this was a pretty bad place to toss that out there.

    As for the M1 mods, any illegal modification to any firearm is indeed an unwise choice to begin with. Posting that you've done any here, if you've done any at all of course, would be considerably less wise.

    Yeah, the M44 is definitely the most fun in terms of "big BOOM". And at $.20/round, the most bang for my buck.

    The M1 modifications aren't mechanical or length based, they're just added accessories, like a rail and an EOTech. I'm a huge fan of milsurp stuff, I'd never do anything permanent or too crazy to my stuff.

    I have a Nagant..cant remember if its an M39 or an M44, but its still packed in the cosmoline and has been sitting in the back of the safe for years. I should dig that out and clean it up sometime.

    Mosin Nagant m1891/30

    M1 Carbine (slightly modified for increased fun)

    Nothing as spectacular as a suppressed .50 BMG rifle, but fun nonetheless. Might have more if my paycheck comes in on time.

    Check your timing. The shoot is happening before the fun show

    ... i'll also be bringing along a somewhat special surprise for people to play with as part of the marksmanship contest, but you have to attend the Shoot to see it and fire it.

    who else thinks they might be bringing gear?

    Depends on what airport I fly out of here.. Gun laws in the NE can be just as bad as CA...

    If i can make it, I'll probably be packing light.

    30-06 howa w/ long range scope
    SKS with too many mods to list.
    Springfield 1911
    and if i have room (and ammo), the mosin twins.

    Yeah, us Californians are generally pretty limited as to what we can own...

    it is indeed possible to do so, but if that's your plan it's really a good idea to have some sort of pre-arrangement with people. folk are always welcome to shoot my long range gear which will be there if (a) you know what you're doing and (b) i have gotten a chance to meet you and talk with you.

    beyond that, there is of course the Class-III rental option that many folks went with last time around. were you considering that? [NOTE - DUE TO NEW LOCATION, RENTAL OF ANY FIREARMS FROM THE RANGE WILL NOT TAKE PLACE. CLASS-III SHOOTING IS A NO-GO AT THE NEW LOCATION]
