but it got the fox this morning Beth , his hide is in the tub now
and in a week or two it'll be a a rather nice if a tad small pelt
incredible luck does happen.
A while back i was at the rifle range with a buddy and we were haivng fun shooting some inline black powder guns. i had brought my kentucky long flintlock.. was using cotton(tshirt) patched lead balls, bore butter as a lube, and pyrodex as a charge. as we were leaving I wanted to get the last charge out of the flintlock. my buddy was holding it and noticed a guy with an ar type rifle shooting at a water jug out at the end of the range. somewehere around 120yds. he's been there for an hour trying to site the ar in. had optics all over it. big eye strain relief stuff. optice must have cost more than the gun. so my buddy asks the guy if we can shoot at his target.. he smirks and waves his hand. so my buddy, stands there in a 'wrong stance' gun bbl swing to and from a bit, and he kracks off the shot with the usualy puff of smoke from a BP gun. when the smoke cleared.. the milk jug was swinging and bleeding water.. 120 yard non bench rested, iron sight, patched lead ball and all..
was a luck shot.. bt the ar guy grabbed his stuff and tossed it into his range bag and left with a disatisfied look..
