Default Going to Front Sight with the Mini 14 and PCC.40

Doing a Rifle class at FS this next week and decided it had been a while since I took the Mini 14. It is running really well right now so I said WTH.

I will mostly be running my Tapco 30 Round Magazines.

Since it is foolish to go there with only one gun I am taking my PCC.40 along too as a backup gun. This will work out well logistically as I am also doing a 2 Day Pistol Skill Builder with my G23, so I'll only need 2 kinds of ammo to cover both classes.

Going to be having fun in the 90+ degree weather, Hope to see you all there.

Do Hydrate for several days before leaving for the desert.

Randy

Have fun! They’ve reduced the round count also to lessen the student’s cost for ammo.

Just be aware that if you use the PCC for class, you test will not count.

Thank God it's about a gun vacation. I thought it was gonna be another thread about Mini-14 worship.

The PCC/Glock combo whould be valuable training. Probably would kick azz.

Yeah, I love my Mini, It was my first .223 carbine and I got it because in 2006 you couldn't buy an AR in CA.

I've shot the PCC.40 in a class before. Kevin Cress was/is lobbying pretty hard for the PCC to be included in the tests since they are only shooting rifles at 100 yards now and any PCC will shoot 100 yards!

When I started at Front Sight in 2006 we shot at 25, 50,100, 200 and 400 yards. It was pretty hard to DG that Class. Then they lowered it to 200 yards a few years ago, and now it's only 100, which I shoot offhand as I'm not willing to roll around in the dirt at 71 for a hundred yard shot I can make offhand just about every time with any of my guns..

The Ruger PCC platform is a great short range gun. The .40 S&W gives it a little more umph and since I have two Glocks in .40 S&W it seemed like the proper choice. (I don't do 9mm!)

I lobbied Ruger hard for that gun and got one of the first ones off the line when they finally showed up. The only problems I've had with the gun is it's tendency to double feed the first two rounds in a full 22 or 31 round magazine. Down Loading by 2 rounds fixed that .

I'm only doing two days so there's no test anyway and I'll probably shoot the Mini 14 one day and the PCC the other. that one is just for fun and I'll leave for home from there instead of going back to Vegas.

I just wish it would rain tomorrow and Tuesday and cool the place down a little before we get there. It is supposed to be 93F+ all 4 days I'm there.

Will probably have a good time anyway.
