    I went to the range today with my friend and finished off the last rounds and caps I had left, I think 4 or 5 cylinders worth, using my Uberti 1861 Navy. The box of lead balsl is gone, so that means I have completed 100 shots! Doesn't mean I can hit anything though ;)

    It wasn't a hit, I just "scared" it off...

    Eventually, I got it.. splash!

    Little milk bottle on top of a bigger bottle, a pic of the victim included.

    I'm going to be leaving town for 3 weeks and I can't take any guns with me, but today was a good farewell until I come back. I had lots of fun and so did my friend, although she had an even harder time hitting the darn bottles.

    I went to the range again today

    Well I had run out of stuff, but my friend had a trip that had her drive past a Bass Pro, and wouldn't you know it she stopped it and got supplies.

    So we went to the the range again, and this time, I had books as targets (College books that I couldn't resell) on top of the same box in the videos, 12 yards away. That was some serious fun! A big ~3 inch thick book would would stop my .36 cal round ball (17 grains 777 FFFg);the round would mangle and fragment beyond any possible recognition. I would not want to be the person stopping that round.

    I need more practice with the whole aiming below the target deal, but I hope that practicing with paper targets (which I haven't done yet) will help me improve.

    The day at the range was great, specially since some friendly people let me try some very nice modern guns, while I let them try my new navy. Can't wait to go back...
