Well, I pulled the trigger and picked up the Pointman. This is number 348 out of 500 produced before CZ took over the show. I believe this one was made in 2003, or somewhere between 2001 and 2005.

 

Somewhere in it’s life it acquired an idiot scratch or two, but oh well. I’ll be taking her out Wednesday to see how she shoots. :)

Looks like mine, this was my first Dan Wesson and my first 1911, I really like mine, one of my fave’s to take to the range to knock down plates.

Congrats on a nice find.

I made it out to the range today at lunch. I ran 100 rounds of PMC 230 grain through the Dan and didn’t have a single hiccup. I’m really impressed with it. I have some 200 grain lead rounds coming in to be loaded. We’ll see what some reloads can do in this thing. :)

 

I also found out that the new indoor range I’m going too allows you to use a brass catcher, and will allow you to pick up the brass from your lane. I don’t know of any other indoor ranges that let you do that. I did inquire about their range brass, and the answer was that they recycle it. I can’t imagine recycling a money making product. Sure, they’ll get the scrap value, but they would get more if they sold it as once fired brass.

Glad it ran well for you. The indoor range I use most often  allows us to collect our own (actually any) brass as long as it does not fall forward of the firing line. I have learned to shoot from from about two feet back from right on the line, or everything seems to bounce forward into “their” territory.

I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman "Were is the Self Help Section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

We run a qualified recycle program on Fort Polk.  We also scrap our brass, to include that on the private weapon range.  No liability and about $2.00 per lb.  We have to de-mil my crushing first.  All the $$ goes back into the MWR and Soldier programs without going to the US General Fund.

 

Glad your shooting went well.  I’ll go ahead and say the cast bullets will run well also.

Offer scrap + 10% and get to sorting. They probably don’t want to deal with the hassle of

getting members to do the work or after the sale complaints.

The scrap value is around $2.00 right now. I’d have to pay them under scrap, but more than what the contractor is paying for it to be worth it. For instance 1000 45 acp cases unprocessed sell for $50 locally on craigslist. That same 1000 cases would fetch $25 for scrap. It’s hard to justify the time to sort the brass and try and sell it.

 

Now, if they’d sell me 5 gallon buckets of brass for my own needs I’d be interested. I’m going to talk to them again and see if I can dip into the 55 gallon drums of brass they have in the back.

So many rules.

At my gun club if it’s on the ground and you want it, it’s yours. If it’s in the buckets and you want it, it’s yours.

To the paranoid people who check behind shower curtains for murderers:

if you find one...what's your plan?

Well, I didn’t see any point in keeping the Crimson Trace grips that came with my PMDP so I unloaded them on fleabay. With the final bid at $150 plus shipping for the grips the actual paid price for my PMDP was $550. :D

 

I’m all set up to reload for 45, except for one tiny issue. My 200 grain SWC cast bullets haven’t shown up. I’d get started, but it’d be hard to keep the powder in the case. :)
