Monday Gunday: Shootin' Update

Not a lot to report today, as last week a heapin' helpin' of crazy was dropped on my life and I was unable to make it to the range. However, it looks like I have some good things in store:

  1. Via Google+ I have found a nice lady named Gwen who not only uses the PMR-30, but carries it concealed as her primary weapon because she has an injured neck and cannot tolerate the recoil of anything stronger.  I have asked her to write a guest post about her experiences with this gun, and she has graciously agreed. 
  2. I hope to take my mother shooting this Friday. If so, she will shoot not only the PMR, but also her .380 S&W Bodyguard. This will give me excellent blogfodder. 
  3. I have a tentative schedule to meet with Gun Shop Guy at his private range to shoot the PMR and possibly other things. I would love to finally get a chance to use my shotty. 
  4. A little birdie tells me I will soon receive a set of rails for my Sub-2000....
  5. I'm trying to get Timney Triggers to send me their patented "Drop-in" Mosin-Nagant trigger. Since I've posted my shot groups already, it will be easy to see if the new trigger measurably improves my shooting, and since I'm not especially handy we shall see if they are truly as idiot-proof as the words drop-in would indicate. 
So, it looks like good times are on the horizon as the temperature drops and the season changes from "Hell" to "tolerable". 

As always, if there is anything you would like me to review, or explain in my own weirdly affable manner, let me know!

Why an expensive trigger when the Finns used a small spring?

Adjustable settings. Plus a safety that doesn't require Hulk-Hogan like arms to engage.

I'm very much looking foreward to your report. I've seen it done by 'gun-guys' before, but I want to see an average user(do NOT read 'woman') tackle it.

Plan on putting one in my M44 Frankenrifle come new year's.

Thanks for the clarification :)  but I wasn't offended anyway. I'm pretty good with my hands, but I am by no means a gunsmith or anything other than a mild tinkerer.  (I did some soldering and circuit board assembly about 10 years ago.)

I figure if I can do it, anyone can.
