mystery solved

well, I found where they're hiding all the .380...


Scottsdale Gun Club, where I had the pleasure of being able to go shooting with my cousin Colleen. It's a beautiful, magical place with lots of ammo and tactical gear and Class III weapons hanging right on the wall.

The range master asked if we had brought every gun in the house.

We just laughed.

That place is awesome. Expensive to shoot the class 3 stuff though. Something like $20 per magazine.

Mike W. said...

wow, .380 and at $15.99/box! Seems like you lucked out!

How was the shootin?

SGC is nice, they even have monthly IDPA and IPSC matches, oh and a shoot house etc... Their Platinum Club memberships are nice also, with the members having their own locker room etc...

OTOH, while SGC has a lot of nice stuff, they also tend to be priced higher than anyone else in the valley.

Then again they are just around the corner from both the Four Peaks brewpub and the Skeptical Chemyst (Irish pub). IDPA match followed by good food and good beer, doesn't get much better.

hmmmm, Website says out of stock.

That was fast. (or maybe they save it for their walk-in patrons).

Looks like you were having fun.

I would get in my car and go buy that RIGHT NOW but unfortunately it'd all be gone before I got there. We only wish I was joking. Can't get 380 -- or bullets to load your own -- for love or money (or anything else) here in Kalifornia.

Mrs. Borepatch particularly liked the very nice lady's rest rooms. She thinks that this is one way to attract more women to shooting (right before shopping, and then tea).

And no, I'm not being snarky at all. Made of Win, when she comes shooting.

It's a nice club, if a little spendy. Great facility.

Steve said...

Your cousin, eh? I can believe that. You have the same nose, eyes and smile.

And .380? Why is there never any .380 available? Allegedly nobody in their right minds carries such a pip-squeak round (well, except you, me and couple of Texans I know).

I'm going to have to ask you to stop sharing my well guarded secret! I'm a member at the club, and I've been playing this one close to the chest! Great facility, but if you aren't shooting expect to have limits on the amount of ammo you can buy!

My 'home' range. They have never run out of ammo, although they now have imposed a limit: 2 boxes per caliber per day.
