The sun was out and the temperature was not too bad so a couple of us old guys headed down to the range. It has been over three weeks since I was last down and that time I didn't get in any shooting as I was playing host to some new shooters. I wanted to check the game camera which has been up all this time. Well the camera was still working and had 2347 photos on the card.
I took a quick peak and saw one very nice 8 pointer with long tines and wide spread. Hope he is still alive
I also wanted to see what the new crushed rock that I had ordered looked like after my neighbor down there so graciously offered to spread it for me. Wow, he did a great job and I just got off the phone thanking him.
Bob had stubbed his toe after dark last week returning from his deer stand and fell on his butt carrying his CVA scoped 50cal. inline and wanted to check to make sure he hadn't knocked the scope out of adjustment. So that mean making some smoke. He only needed a few clicks to get it back on for a good 100 yard hit on paper. I apologize for the blurry picture but it seams regardless of how hard I try and even though I know that canon is going to go off I can't keep from jumping when I am standing behind him with the camera.
I got to try my new Howard Leight electronic ear muffs that someone here recommended. Yea, they work great, Thanks,
I took that little Springfield .22 Model 187-J along to see if it would feed, fire, & eject after I cleaned it up a bit. Well apparently I didn't clean the chamber well enough and it doesn't feed the second round all the way into the chamber and it feels a little rough. So much for a fast and dirty cleanup. Will do it right and try again.
I took the S&W M&P9 Pro Series along for a little plinking. The more I shoot that pistol the more I like it. Well no problem on the 8" steel plates at 50 feet so feeling like I knew what I was doing I tried the 8" steel plates at 50 yards. Huh! Eight shots off hand and only three of them were hits. That is what happens when you lay off the shooting practice.
But it was sure nice to get out and enjoy a nice brisk sunny December afternoon.
