    Any day shooting is better than not shooting at all but today was close to braking even. Re-hurt my bad back Tuesday, then a couple more times later in the week. Didn't care, needed to get out and shoot for stress relief. First off, get guns & ammo ready, go out to car and find out it's raining. Change plans, go into house and drink a cup of coffee. 15 min. later I think,( alright, it's Oregon, winter's coming , get used to the rain). Load my stuff up anyway and it stops raining, high point of the day as it turns out. First up, the Mosin. Brought 400+ rounds but after 11 stripper clips my back said no-no. That was short, usually fire 250 minimum. Also the day before one my ferrets took a good chew on my nose, (has never bit before). With my back hurting I wasn't holding the rifle as I should have and my right thumb hit my nose on a couple of recoils, breaking open ferret wounds, (they have nasty sharp teeth), sending blood everywhere. Next was the 625, I had 120 moon clips loaded to go. Funny, but after the M44, a .45acp round seems to have no recoil. Used 16 moon-clips and shot well enough but the hurt was still there. It has only been 20 min. since I started shooting and I stopped. My range time lasts 2 or 3 hours on average, this was the shortest ever! The worst part was all the brass I found at the range and I couldn't bend over to pick it up. Oh-well, it all evens out. Saturday I found a Ben Franklin in my wallet I had stashed and forgot. So it's Sunday evening, I'm a little sore but a $100 richer. How did you fellows do?

    Dang, DT, I didn't even go shooting this weekend and it sounds like I did better than you.
    Go have the libation of your choice and write it off as "one of those days".

    today was a sleep and loath like a sloth day,which I consider good cause I needed it.

    What sucks the most is when you take out a Garand and forget clips,done that a couple times.Or when out in the middle of nowhere your car breaks down,happened a couple times.

    ah but one thing about winter coming up for me tehehe:neener: ....is while some of you will be shoveling snow Ill be in cool Florida weather,sunny skies and wearing shorts.

    I went out Saturday and had a great day. Beautiful sunny day, about 65 degrees. I started out with my new Firestorm Mini 9 Stainless, 300 rnds through it now with no malfs.
    Then I shot my FAL and RRA/Bushy AR and exploded some water jugs.
    I laughed, I cried, it was much better than Cats.:D

    Still better than me, IMO, I didn't make it to the range at all :(
