    The MP5 series, right along with the Uzi series, were my favorite SMGs to see in movies while growing up.

    A few pics from our 4th Annual Father's Day Shootout at our ranch. Close family and friends. We start with shotguns and blow up a couple boxes of clay birds and then switch to rifles and handguns.

    My daughter had never shot at clays before and had a blast. She picked it up fast.

    The wife and I. Only holster I own that I didn't make. Works good for this little J frame Mod 36 (first two are snake shot, snakes are bad this year).

    Working with the daughter on how to shoot the big Vaquero.

    She got it:

    Only downside was a squib load that got stuck in Tyler's wife's original 1890 Win. Wasn't fixable at the range. Here he's loading up his Henry pump .22.

    Happy blasting was had by all:

    Lucky Number Seven. It is seven because it was the seventh rifle made for the 264 RLB wildcat cartridge. I also had #4.
    264 RLB is a 6.8 SPC necked down to 6.5mm, then with the shoulder blown forward VERY similar to an Ackley Improved cartridge. It's an absolute joy to shoot, with recoil about like a 223. There is no recoil pad because it's not needed.

    [​IMG]
    It is a custom rifle built on a Ruger #3 action, which started off life as a 45-70. Similar to the #1 except a classic "S" lever instead of the Farquharson lever on the #1. The forend doesn't match because it was cut from a block of walnut by the gunsmith to my specifications, so it had not completely faded yet in that picture. It now matches the buttstock much better. The buttstock was a #1 buttstock from Boyds. The barrel is a 25" Palma Profile by Pacnor. The barrel is cylindrical out to the end of the rail, both to make mounting a rail easier, and to have a large heat sink that extends well past the end of the chamber. The barrel never gets hot.

    Here is the cartridge. Don't be fooled by the size. It is a high efficiency cartridge. Using only 33 grains of powder, it is roughly on par with a 6.5x55 Swede using 44 grains of powder. It has proven to be a very effective round for whitetail deer out to 300 yards. Think of it as a 300 yard 30-30 because it has roughly the same killing power at 300 yards as a 30-30 has at 100 yards.

    That's a 130 grain Accubond, which gets up to about 2650 fps in #7.

    IMG_2791.jpg IMG_2792.jpg Added rubber black Talon grips, I love the contrast. Feels great, my hand wants to move down on the grip over time. These make it a much firmer grip.

    A couple of Rangeflap holsters too:

    One of the great advantages to a gun guy of the Rangeflap is that it will fit multiple handguns:
