I thought I'd take a quit cat nap, but Noooooo! The crows had to start making a bunch of noise and my finger got all itchy.
I had probable caws.

There was a fourth, but I didn't get all of him and he went hobbling off through the woods. Owls gotta eat too.









Love rimfire window shots. What kind of rifle, Sako?

Beautiful winter day yesterday. 18 degrees, sun, and no wind at our FP. Got to shoot some and spot for a friend. Don’t dig on him for that wonky left leg position. It got between a motorcycle and a bus when he was young, so it doesn’t work the best.

We noticed the 1,030 yard target was giving very little audible feed back. I blamed it on the dense air and wind direction. When painting steel this morning, I discovered another reason. Snow is getting pretty deep.

I like the "see through" handrail. Do you run a rose bud on the deck or is it heated?

Neither. Just clean it every time it snows and let the sun get to it when it can. It’s been tough keeping it clean this year. We shoot under the seating benches. Behind us is traditional deck railing with spindles. I built it about 15 years ago. I’m an amateur.

I should note that the portion he’s on is elevated roughly 4’ above grade. The part I’m on is a step down from that. Snow is level full now on the lower portion. I built the railing so a snow shovel fits under it.

FWIW, I ended up trimming the spring and polishing the chamber. My 270 runs like a champ now.
Chamber has been polished, but I’ve read about those needed a loop off the spring to make them play nice sometimes. Thanks for the heads up, it might come to clipping the spring

Once dialed to ELR shooting, @Jamie C should kick said jersey shooter’s ass with each of the rifles in separate matches.

I am a fan of that idea.


Any dude who has to attack a lady like that either has LDMF issues or a hand that hates him so much it wont touch him.
or both.
And probably gets arrested on purpose, just for the cavity searches.

Very cool, I saw that on WCVB the other day! Where I work, we have had a nesting box for peregrine falcons for years and in 2019, they actually used it. MA Audubon came out regularly to check on them and ultimately, tagged three chicks. Awesome/scary to see them up close. Mama was not happy with uninvited guests...
