    Nothing much to say here. Feeling good is all! Weather was perfect, nice little breeze. Brought the rolling block to test some handloads at the 200yard line. Shooting about 1.5moa and stringing a bit right. Will have to hone it in.

    Just a good day, hope yours was as pleasant as mine. Wishing THR the best. Share your good days if you’ve had one this week!

    Very cool. I plan to spend a day this coming weekend at the range, I took care of lawn mowing, maint, etc.. every day this week after work so that my weekend would be free to do what I want. Probably one of if not my last range trip this season, although if I feel ambitious enough I might brave the winter cold on one or two occasions.

    Winter sucks because I'm slammed with work, night classes, holidays, 5 family birthdays in December, plowing, heating oil Bill's, no range time/target practice. Yep, winter sucks.

    We’re headed to our gun club tomorrow morning, followed by lunch at a barbecue place in a small town not far from our club. It’s always a good time.

    The Haymarsh, MI ( Aka, Paradise.)
    After the last hundred or so yesterday, I am out of Fourty Five Auto.
    (I hear the press downstains start wagging it's handle. He's excited. )

    I put nearly a whole box of Winchester bulk hollowpoints through my Buckmark in the previous two trips. The last of it is going out in about four hours.:thumbup:

    I fixed my Desert Eagle and fired the last hundred and fifty through that last weekend. (Oops! The press heard that too. He's stretching and yawning now.)

    I get more and more bull's eyes with it now, after reading @ATLDave's thread on flinching. The Eagle caused it and the Eagle will fix it!
    Dang you Reptile Brain! :D (It was remarkable to start with my 1911 and have center hits and run the gun and then realize only the Eagle makes me blink...)

    I'll take my Valkyrie out today with the Buckmark. I have some (yuck) factory ammo to try in it. If that doesn't work I'll have to try reassembly. It shoots like crap. And it is my most expensive setup. Of course.;)
    (He just yipped at the word factory. I know, I dont like it either...)

    Today will be gorgeous just like yesterday. We are at the height of Autumn in West Michigan. The clay was moist, the Herons took flight, off the marsh, with the first pistol shot.
    I stood in one Deer bed and saw my cases were landing right in another. No lost brass today!
    The grass frogs dove for the deep as I walked by. They better eat quick, its going to be cold soon!

    I picked up an empty beer box and some glass. Threw the glass in the truck and a target on the box, in buisness!
    Which is good. I forgot my target holder stick.:D

    There is a two-track back to the Haymarsh dam. It had rained quite a bit this week and I also got to get my truck a little muddy! (No sense in washin' a clean truck...):)

    Perhaps the flatlanders will go home and I can use the cabin field in the evening for some pigeon thowing. We'll see. They are super nice, but way to dangerous for me to shoot with.:eek: I have kids.
    I can blast some water jugs with the Bushmaster over there...

    Ok. I've got to go see whats wrong. He heard "Bushmaster" and just loves those big cases. He's scratching to get out and press lead. I'll have to deprime some Fifty A.E. to hold him over till tonight...

    Get out and enjoy the weather, y'all! Sunday is gun day!:thumbup:

    My son-in-law went down to the range Saturday to sight in our black powder rifles. Great weather and great time.
    Saturday starts muzzle loader season so want to be sure of a good clean shot if a deer comes along.

    Now that's my idea of a fun day at the range! Been quite some time since I shot outdoors.

    Really like your Rolling Block rifle with the old timey telescopic scope!

    In a rare feat of “How did I pull this off?” I was able to hit my local indoor range on Friday, yesterday and today.

    I live going to the range, even if it is just for a little while.

    Glad you had a great day Jessesky. :)

    Tried to get out and shoot this weekend but had a great time with my little ones instead. Took the 2 year old to the park for a couple hours and came home to wrestle the 5 month old while mama took a nap. Life is good, friends.
