| Outdoor Board|| Tactical Response Fighting Rifle - After Action Report (Warning TL;DR) - bapple on 4/18/14 at 9:09 pm|
So as been discussed here, I went to Tactical Response in Camden, TN this weekend. I'll try to make this Bapple-outline-esque but there's no guarantee it'll match up to the caliber of my video outlines since I'll mostly just be rambling. Maybe I'll make a video AAR with some footage or something if ...

Driving my GMC Envoy the past few days, I've noticed that the transmission sometimes does not want to stick in the overdrive gear. It'll idle out in overdrive and then downshift a few times before it settles.

I'm thinking about picking these up for my M&P compact that I just got. I really like the large dot up front, the raised rear, and the large shelf for racking one handed. These seem to be winners.
| Outdoor Board|| Acquired a New Toy Today (Thanks Mcdiddles) - bapple on 2/26/14 at 10:05 pm|
A new CC piece - M&P9c
1. SR9c feels a little better in the hand.
2. Trigger is bad but feels like a Shield trigger - the reset is definitely better. They must be putting these newer triggers in all the M&Ps.
3. This will probably get an Apex like my CORE.

If you're a shooter, please teach your wife/SO/gf/dime-piece etc. how to shoot. I've seen numerous shooters lately who have never thought of teaching the lady and it is something I'm very big about.
Women benefit from firearms more than men. It could save her arse (or yours) one day.
