Just got back from the range in B-ville, I love the trigger, but I am still getting used to the Heine straight eight sights. seems like everything I was shooting was low and left 20 yards. I was shooting free hand no rest. I feel it was the remmy bulk pack ammo I was using, the CCI brass loads I had seemed to shoot better. I could take the center out at 7 yds. Course it didn't help that the guys next to me were pelting me with 9mm casings, and the police training that was going on in the wing next to me. 5 guys emptying full mags at 10 feet as fast as they could pull the trigger. when I get comfortable with the gun I will post targets

picksbigwagon, NICE artillery!! MY 1st handgun was a Taurus. I believe it was a model 66A,(.357 double action, stainless revolver). I wish NOW that I'd never traded it for a .357 cal Winchester 94 trappers rifle. I'm sure you'll be happy with 'er. Phred52

Just got back from the range at the casino (actually in the health club, but right next to the casino), and I think I solved my problem with low and left. I was using the wrong grip with my 1911 and I was allowing my trigger finger to get in too deep (boy does that sound wrong doesn't it?) A guy was there who was shooting a springfield 1911, didn't like his at all, too font heavy and the beavertail was too small.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
