    It was a slow day today. Worked a couple work projects and took the rest of the day off. Fixed the driveway from the last rain. It me time. A little Scotch, a saw horse, a box, sharpie, and an Air Rifle. HW97K. Who Elise is enjoying their evening with a little practice?

    They get mad when you shoot their friends, I've had crow families that remembered me for a long time. I'm sure they remembeted what I had done.

    My dad always says that they remember things. Shooting was good tonight. Had to warm up a bit first. Then got nice groups. Scotch was also good. Just one. Good practice. Especially trigger control. Tried some copper and lead pellets.

    Do you have a can errr I mean lead dust collector on that rifle? I never found the 97 to be all that loud. Nice gun, nice shooting.

    I didn’t have any orange stickers so I used a sharpie. As you can see my dots were pretty small. Nice shooting cslinger and nice rifle. I really like the stock.

    Bikerdoc, good luck with the crows. I have a few red squirrels to organize.

    You just may find that if you rest your HW97 on a softer front rest like foam, it will give you even better results. I get groups like yours at 40 yards with mine from a foam rest.

    I was using a bean bag type rest from a saw horse. Not the most steady of rests.

    I didnt wander into work till 10 this morning, probably won't get to shoot this evening, but it sure does sound better than sitting here watching algae grow.

    I have taken to shooting the back yard when possible. Had our member Daniel Craig over today for some reloading lessons. No shooting tonight. It’s raining.

    I have probably shot more since this pandemic then before. Airgun of course vs powder burner but shooting none the less. Between the airguns and dryfire I have don’t quite a bit of shooting. :)

    lit helps that I have a very nice fairly long distance indoor shooting range setup that afords me climate control and a solid 18-19 yards (60 feet wall to wall). The downside / upside as well but since I don’t need to worry about wind I don’t get that extra challenge.

    Resized_20200719_113705.jpg The whole family went out today. My wife and both my boys. Forest road 70 in Washington. There's a quarry everyone shoots at but we go to a smaller place a few miles further. Shot 6 of our PB's, two muzzelloaders and four of the break barrels pellet rifles.

    THE FAMILY THAT SHOOTS TOGETHER STAYS TOGETHER

    Top of picture Hatsan 130QE .30, Xsisco XS25, Hatsan 105x .25 and a Hatsan 125 .22
    Among some other fun items. Resized_20200719_113705.jpg

    Tomorrow back to my 40yrd range in our first pasture and a different selection of pellet rifles.
