For my southern friends

My brother sent me an email with pictures of his vacation frivolity. He and his son Bubba went to a shootin' range. I'm not including the pictures, and I'm changing the names to protect the guilty, otherwise they would be in danger of losing their Canadian citizenship for this travesty.
So we had nothing to do in Florida one day.... and seeing how this is America... let's go shoot some high calibre weaponry.

Bubba is holding a 9 mm Glock 26 (very similar to what Jack Bauer of 24 uses). He also shot a 9mm semi-automatic machine gun but it was too heavy and he ended up shooting the track that the targets are attached to and broke it (the owner said it happens all the time)

He shot somewhere between 200-250 rounds.

I shot pretty much everything they had available. 3x 9mm Glocks, 10 mm Glock, .40 Glock, .45 Glock, .357 Magnum (pictured), 9mm semi-auto machine gun.

I shot somewhere around 300 rounds.

Bubba's favourite was the Glock he is holding. It is lightweight and easy to load and use.

I liked the .45 Glock as it was the most powerful of all of the guns available.

Bubba has several targets that we destroyed. All in all a fun time was had for only $87.

Ahem...

<lecture>A semi-automatic rifle is not a machine gun. A machine gun is full-automatic, which means you pull the trigger and it fires until you release the trigger. A semi-auto fires once for each trigger pull.</lecture>

Anyway, sounds like fun! Reminds me I've got to get my boys out shooting again as soon as the weather allows.

"I liked the .45 Block as it was the most powerful of all of the guns available."

I'm not totally positive, but I think the 10mm Auto trumps .45ACP. Technical nits, yeah, but getting it wrong will get you roasted in Internet gunfora.

A good time was had by all, as they say.
