Welcome aboard newbie.;)

Hang out, enjoy yourself and feel free to jump in at any time.

We learn alot from each other here.

Lot of folks here from Cali also. They hold shoots all the time. Keep an eye out for the next one close by. Good way to meet folks with the same hobby.

BTW it's too bad Huntington Beach's public shooting range is off limits to the public. Would you mind explaining how a public shooting range is closed to the public that finances it? If the answer is just because its in California, I'll understand.

BTW, Welcome snordhol.

Welcome aboard,

If those are Remington 870s you guys are holding, you'll find a quick mentor in Dave McCracken over on the shotgun board. OTOH....he'll be a great mentor even if they aren't 870s, but it never hurts;)

Preacherman,

I am a student at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, and Snordhol is my UNIX username. I find it quite catchy and it just sort of stuck.

Thanks for all the support you guys!

At this point we just plink and shoot trap. I can't say that I am any good (19 for 25 is my best); but I always try to enjoy myself while on the range or out in the desert.

Hey Skunk, I posted your Mall Security picture (http://www.dastardlyweasel.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=135&view=findpost&p=1115) on my forum (http://dastardlyweasel.com/forum/) and one of the members immediatly wanted to know 'is that legit?'! I told him I would pass along the word.

BTW, That picture was taken out on the victorvill lake bed.

Snordhol — noun (Norw., from Old Norse) — one who is tired, sunburned, dirty and happy after another long day at at the range.

Ok, two questions:

1) During the middle of that clip, was the speed increaced , or is Skunk just that good?

2) When is the next time you are going shooting? The the dude's in the picture above want to join you or someone one else with THAT kind of talent.

And the Geek part of me wants to know if you can actually solve that 5x5 Rubix Cube?

Thanks

Actually one is a Remington Model 17 20ga and the other is a Winchester model 12. Both were made before 1930.

We are NOT just like you! We are all much better looking!


Well, except Skunk, of course.


:D


Welcome aboard, Oh UNIX One!



Victimville, eh? Used to go out Wild Wash Road to cap a round or two. If you come across an old washing machine with a tennis ball sized DEEP dent in the side out there, that was my old friend Denny and his black powder mortar. :D

The middle was sped up, my camera only does 30 seconds of video and the song was short so I had to arrange it as such :o

Me not sure when I'm going shooting next, depends if Duke of Lawnchair will be in town on Saturday.

The cube is almost done....just have two pieces that are switched :banghead:

I will also show some pics of my dad's mauser that my grandpa brought bake with him from WWII. It has swasticas stamped on the barrel. And no My grandpa faught for the USA. He took it from a dead German soldier.

Fine looking shotgun there.

My FIL has 2 or 3 early Winchester lever actions that are of that same vintage (20's or 30's) and I'm really hoping that one day he'll thin the herd a little and give me one.....after all I have to take good care of his little girl, right?

Then again, my FIL has lots of guns.....maybe I should start planning where the next 3 safes are going to go in the house

Greeting's And Welcome Aboard From The Frigid "Deep South"

With the NWS tracking a depression sweeping through
the Gulf, possibly being here between Feburary 2-4, I'd
better get my shooting clothes on too; and join you with
a trip to the range! That is one thing you ********** guys
and gals got going for you; the fact that the weather
mostly stays in your favor. That old winter storm
could mess things up here in "The Heart Of Old Dixie"?

Looks like you have been enjoying yourself there my friend.
Kind'a looks like a place where we use to pull the patrol car
out to at about midnight, shut off all lighting except the
"blue lights"; and fire at tin cans, as the strobes flashed
by. At any rate, enjoy yourself as you cruse through these
discussion forums.

Best Wishes,
Ala Dan, N.R.A. Life Member

Thank you.

Fine looking shotgun there.

It is a verry nice shotgun. Never had any problems with it. only thing it could use is a little restoration. get the wood refinished and have it blued. other than that it is in beautiful firing shape.
