Have a night-range coming up, and would love to show off the Tommy with some tracer rounds. Does anyone have a good source for 30~50 rounds?

Last I checked, Sportsman's Guide has 45 ACP tracers for sale.

If I had just a little more time on my hands, I'd make you up a batch, but it the price for 50 proves to high, and you have a little time to go, let me know, I might be able to help. Right now, though my loading bench is in pieces as I'm moving my gun room to another part of the house. I could just make up the bullets if you want to do the loading. That wouldn't be to tough to squeeze in to the schedule.

When is your shoot Chris? The big Kentucky show is September 11-12, and I know they have rounds there. And the 1500 in Indy is in 2 weeks, I could pick you up some there.

How about Neal Trickel in Monroe, Wisconsin? He may be able to help. As far as I know, he's still "up there".

ohmy.gif Tracers, good ! ...They will look good in the 'Jungle Walk'. Love to see them bounce off the steel targets, helps me sense target hits better... biggrin.gif
Mike, Chris, john, & the rest of you guys, train-up for the MG Shoot. It will be here soon, and bring your Thompsons......(Don't neglect the horizontal spray of a group of targets technique)....The woods will ring to the sound of Thompsons!!!!.............jw
