    How do you pronounce Steyr of Mannlicher?

    I think that I have given a range report but here is another.
    Bought 2000rnds of Blazer 9mm alum case. Shot 700+ rounds of the Blazer Brass and mainly the Blazer alum case. 0 FTF or FTE and have not experienced any brass flying back at my face. I have let my range buddies shoot this as well as my Father-in-law who suffers from many illness' so I thought that he would experience a FTE by limp wristing but no dice. It has quickly became my favorite out of a G17, G30, Sig 232, XD 40 service, HK USP 45, Kimber Custom II and the S&W 637 airweight that has yet to be shot. I have even considered trading the HK to fund the purchase of more guns but I have a feeling that would be something that I would regret. This is going to be my primary range gun and carry piece. Thanks everyone for the tips and advice as well as the links and the places to get parts.

    The pronunciation of Steyr should be "Shtire". Like "Sh" and "tire".

    However, being the American that I am, I choose to do it without the Austrian accent, and pronounce without the "h" - so "stire".

    Can I ask where you got your Blazer ammo, and how much you paid?

    I buy from http://www.natchezss.com for the Blazer case price is about $107 for 1000rnds. I bought some 45acp a while back and paid $7.11 per box but only got 500, now they are $8.10, I should have got more. The price of ammo is going up so expect to see higher prices. The Walmart that I shop at asks $11.34 for WWB + tax. So I save about $14 from Walmart price and have it shipped to my doorstep. I hate to go to WM and the UPS man is now a little worried about me. :D
