    Today I went to the range to due a functions test on 4 of our department M16's a thousand rounds later I figure they work. 10 hrs overtime shooting not bad plus the overtime I will get for cleaning them will also be nice:-D one of the guns is so old it does not have a forward assist all are colts. Also found out we only have 6 mags for them so need to order 30 more.

    Sometimes, after trips like that, it's hard to believe that someone actually pays us to do that kind of stuff.:cool:

    Does that M16 without the forward assist have a dust cover on it? If it is a first series M16 it is worth some serious dollars.

    Do they let you keep the fired brass? :)

    A thousand rounds should have only taken an hour at the most to shoot. :rolleyes:

    6 mags, each holding, I assume, 30 rounds each, that's 180 rounds available at one time. Of those 10 hours shooting, I'd guess, overall, probably 6 hours were spent loading the mags.

    Went to the range with a good buddy today, didn't shoot my stuff, but got to shoot a colt anaconda, stainless Ruger gp100 .357, and a Glock .40....
    Oh my goodness!!!!! The anaconda was frickin awesome!..... I will say the Glock .40 wasn't unpleasant to shoot, actually pretty nice.. As much as to admit....

    Getting paid to have fun?!? What is this concept... I knew I should have listened to my Dad and followed his footsteps into the PD...

    But noooo I wanted to do mechanical engineering...

    I know it isn't all fun, not by a long shot, but days like that do help!
