    Was at at a gunshow last weekend swapping a few gtns that I was bored with. Slow weekend. Lotta ARs, but nothing I could snag for less than 5 bills. Was not much coming into the show.

    Finally, guy came by with the Springer Tac .45 and 3 mags, like new, no box. He wanted 4 bulls cause it cost too much to shoot and was hard to rack. He said he just got an XDs 9,Told hun a "get rid of it" price was more like 250. We settled on 3. Only thing I got all weekend.

    Had to live with another plastic gun, but at least it was a .45. Gun was a bit hard to rack, but functioned perfectly with 230 gr. FMJs. Shot a bit below P.O.A. My buddy put his Ruger American .45 next to it. They appeaed much the same, except for the grip safety on the Springer.

    Put a cheap Wally World laser on this gun today. Wenn't out and zeroed it when the sun went down in the back yard early tonight. Now to see if it will hold it's zero. Gotta shoor it a few nights this week. Works well on .22s and o.k. on 9s.The .45 might beat ir loose.

    Maybe I can get thewife to get a pic of it and a couple of others I got last month to post them too. She has the smart phone and e-mail that still works. I have a dumb phone cause I can't see or read anything on anything that small,

    But getting her to do anything gun related is really hard. She was just complaing about having to make reservations for a hotel room for the next gunshow in 2 weeks.
