My leave is wrapping up, so I figured I oughtta grab a couple buddies and head out to Chickahominy. Low 60s, light breeze, clear sky:

Brought my 10/22. Green Mountain barrel, Evo stock, Eabco deluxe trigger kit, Barska scope.

Here's my buddy Brian's 10/22, I think he's using a Whistlepig barrel. He's got more shiny stuff on his:

Those flyers are probably my fault. I need to pick up some match ammo and see if it makes a difference. One way or another, we had fun.
Getting out to the range on a nice day is kinda like a bath for the soul. :)

Yep! I know what you mean. Especially this time of year a range trip starts making the mouth water with the thought of finally using the boomsticks afield. I appreciate the nice days more cause I know they wont be around much longer.

.22's are a great day at the range. How long are you at NAS Pensacola? My brother-in-law graduated from OCS there in 01 or 02. I have friends in Cantonment (sp?) -- well enjoy your range time.

there were shooting glasses on the bench. They just weren't wearing them. Look closer.

That looks like a pretty nice shootin' hole! I'd love to have something like that in my backyard.

I had it, just didn't wear it while "posing". Caught me. :)

Depends on what pipeline I end up in, but at least a year is a safe bet.

It's real nice. So nice in fact, that I went back this morning. :D
