Made it to the range to shoot my muzzys.
When i got there a man was shooting a flinter.Every 10 minutes it would cloud up,like it was going to storm and then move away!It was warm out.
In a short period of time there was 5 of us there!4 of us were older guys and one younger guy. By younger,i mean in his mid 50's! [HA-HA].
I am not good at off hand shooting. When i am hunting i like to have a tree or a rock,to shoot from? I use a rest to sight in all my guns.
A fellow says he wants to put up a couple of targets,to check his 2 deer rifles. We clear the range and he goes out to 100 yards and puts up a shoot and see target and an 8 inch paper plate. In between us shooting the black powder guns,he stands up,off hand,fires a shoot and puts the one gun back into its case? We fire another round of smoke poles,he shoots his other rifle. "I don't hunt anymore,i loan these out famialy",he says. "I just wanted to see if they had messed the scopes up?"
We left him go bring his targets in,as he was done??? Well 2 shots,2 targets,2 guns, off hand,older guy,2 BULLS EYES!!!!!!!!! The best centered bull was an old Savage Mod.99,in 308 and the other gun was a Remington-700/243.
Here i am,shooting at 50 yards,off a bench rest,a 50 cal.with 2ff powder and the target looks like you ran it thru a sewing machine???
I got 2 inlines shot in,finaly,these are my loaners!
