Took the .54 caliber Lancaster rifle up to the range today for a little informal shooting. Haven't shot the thing since last deer season. I was waiting for just the right day, one with little humidity and cooler temps and today was it. Perfect day, and met a fellow club member named Bob, who was there doing the same thing. Nice guy, and we had nice conversation. The old smokepole and myself didn't do too badly considering how long its been since I last had it out. I got a nice 3 shot group at 50 yards that measured maybe 2 1/2 to 3 inches across. Not the best I've ever shot, but I'll take it right now. I have time to work that down before deer season. Even managed to scrounge some lead from behind the backstop after things were all said and done (Bob finished up same time I did). Looking forward to my next trip up.
