intro.

I reside in Washington State, having traveled to numerous countries, over a long period of time. I have a deep passion for hunting, shooting, and most everything associated. This site is truly an enjoyable place to read, look, listen, watch, and share. Thanks!

The ones that go BOOM!

The ones that go BOOM! LOL...Though fairly true. In particular, I'm into precision, though I have interests in, and have owned, and/or worked on a fairly broad spectrum of weaponry. Anything from single shot antique .22s to the Barrett. I have a long history with the .308 Bolt gun, just love the way it is, from design, to it's efficiency. Handguns and Shotguns...auto or single shot...it is all good. Thanks Snake!

Nothing wrong with this site at all...well, with the exception that there is not more people on it! I have enjoyed every minute, and will continue to do so. It is a place of freedoms!

Thanks! I'm away a lot, but when I get in, this is a great place to relax! That is when I'm not reloading or shooting. Thanks again!

could be most enjoyable. I'm gone a lot, and work nights. Maybe we can set something up after the New Year. I have a new Kimber 8400, and an SPS TAC. to wring=out.

All joking aside, do you have a local range or a more formal setup. I'm fortunate to have a "rural" range about 3 miles away, but we live out far enough that i usually just drive up the mt. a couple of miles and walk back off the road. a number of locals follow the same drill, and its great to have this access. Before we retired the wife and i lived in Phoenix, and i had to drive almost an hour to shoot.

No, but there is a large gravel pit up in the woods, about four miles from home, and the nearest formal range is near a town named Littlerock. I haven't joined their club, for reasons of my work hours, and the distance. Until last year, my youngest son, and his buds would meet up, much as you describe, and we had some informal competition.

Well, Thank you! I will get back with you on this. I am tied-up through the New Year. We will get something going! It would be just me, for one Son moved to KS, and the real shooter, my youngest moved to MT, to live his dream of living and hunting, and fishing about a year ago.

Greasypaws, 50 and 175 yard would be a great place to start, for I am just breaking in the two rifles, for now. The SPS Tactical would certainly need a longer range later (once I refine the load/zero). Put a Nikon Monarch 5-20x44 w/BDC on the rifle, and would like to check out the actual function of the scopes ranging reticle at different distances...would be fun to see what happens! I saved up a long while to get the stuff, so might as well enjoy it!

Thats the neat thing about our area, most of us are retired, and about 5 of us are regulars. Doesnt take long before we start putting a beer or small amount of ammo on the shot, nothing serious, all great fun.

I hear you there! Shooting is one of the most enjoyable things in my life, keeps me sharp for hunting, and relaxes me.
