Today went to the local "pay to play" shooting range with my friend and long time prairie dog hunting companion. We hadn't been shooting in months, and while it is still snowing hereabouts, my buddy thought surely he should verify his zeros on his varmint rifle. Nothing better to do, I agreed to go.

First we shot pistols. My neat little Russian Free Pistol was quite the rage, even though I didn't shoot it very well.

Then we went to the 200 yard range and shot for awhile. I put about 65 rounds through the 1934 Ishevsk Nagant, both Czech silvertip and Polish light ball. That is one really sweet shooting, accurate, rifle. It is surprisingly accurate despite the rough bore.

Best of all, cleanup took no time at all. Couple of wet patches, a brush, some dry patches, and all is done. Wipe down the bolt, and reassemble.

All these years later, that rifle which doubtless fought the Great Patriotic War, dropped how many times, and still it shoots great.
