    Thanks Myredtail, those Nylons are something else.
    +1 on, the never parting...that's the way with my 1st one and now this second one turned out to be a good one as well. IMHO, the best .22lr Remington ever made, The 700 for centerfire and the Nylon for rimfire...

    I tried some of your relaxing and shooting today as it was beautiful out with clear skies, no wind and close to 70 degrees. Won't be many like this the rest of this year. I was shooting a Marlin 60 and a Winchester 9422 at mostly 50 yards. Had some giggles today too as I got involved and a witness protection program. I was alone today but there was a gutsy little ground squirrel that decided to witness my shooting. He was sitting at the base of a tree about 20 yards further down range and evidently watching the bullets impact the leaves and dirt after they had gone through the cardboard target. I could see him in the scope along with the target and figured he would move on after I shot a few times but that was not the case. That brassy little booger just hung around for over 50 rounds. He would move around some but come right back to his perch and witness the shooting. Just had to protect that little rascal.

    I will blame my poor shooting on the distraction caused by the squirrel. :D

    Josh, that little fellow was chipmunk and would'nt make a grease spot in the skillet. Now if he was gray squirrel he would have been a goner.

    Saw a nice six point buck on the range and they are tearing up the ground where we poured some of that mineral stuff as an attractant.

    You don't want to see the 100 yard targets, yuck, looks like I was firing buck shot as they were spread all over the place. :(

    That's some pretty good shooting to be distracted by a chipmunk Todd..!
    If that little "critter" only knew what danger he "could" have been in..:eek:
    It was a good day, (perfect day) to be out. The last couple of days all day long, I was daydreaming of doing some shooting..:( Nothing like "those" kind of days Todd...and I agree with you, I doubt we will have many more of them, a person ought to make the most of what's left, wont be long til the snow is flying and the wind is blowing.

    dang windy here. 30+ mph wind gusts. I shot some 150 yard targets with my model 5 trying to dope the wind. It was pretty fun, but to give you an idea of the dope, I was getting as much wind drift as i was getting bullet drop at 150yds :eek: but managed to keep the 40 gr super speeds within 3 inches of each other once i got on target...

    Dang JLA, 30+ mph gusts and trying (and doing) doping the wind...That's the ticket! Ya gotta love it, and as you did, it can be done.:) That's what I was doing @ 500yds, but costing me a buck a shot...:eek: (long story short...) had some 150grs. that I really wasnt going to use and thought why not? I needed the practise! Wasnt as bad as 30 mph gusts though...just alot of crosswinds between me and the target.

    trees on both sides of your shooting lane eh? trees and other tall obstructions do the same thing to wind as rocks in the river do to water. It can really botch a long shot on a big buck...

    If you don't like the "sweet" series scopes because of the start mag, why not try a centerpoint 4-16x40AO. It is a mil-dot illuminated rectical and at $70 there not a bad deal!:D Doug

    I'm with you both on that!!! Heck yeah....I only had one problem with the 3-9x32 and had it replaced. Got it back on and back in action and no complaints!
    The 4-16x 40 I have had for well over a year now....well, I'm 100% satisfied with it's performance!
