We are not Human beings going through a temporary Spiritual experience, but Spiritual beings going through a temporary Human experience.
It is about time! Roush Lake here I come. Heading down next Wednesday to avoid the crowds. I have a couple I need to get sighted in. 45-70 Marlin and 22-250. I will probably pack a lunch and spend the day.
Not a bad crowd at Roush Lake Wednesday. There were plenty of benches at 50 and 100. Pistol was a little crowded but I was not down there. The Savage 22-250 was less than an inch at 100 yards so I am sure I have something to work with. Not bad with factory ammo. Next is to explore a better trigger. There was a nasty wind from behind. The 45-70 performed well. 1-1/2 to 2" at 100 so minute of whatever I would hunt with it. I am going to load some powder puff loads for it just for fun. Monday I took my daughter to the pistol club for some shooting. She had told me she wanted my S&W 66 so we took it. She kept most of the holes in the man-sized target at 15 feet with a good share near center mass. She did not do bad but unless her fingers grow about an inch or so it is not the gun for her. I am looking for some small grips. If not we will try something else. She loaded it and handled the gun safely. My Rock Island 1911 45ACP continues to digest everything I put in it. I will see if the trigger gets better after some more break in but I can live with it for now. I installed an ambi safety, next is some sights I can see better.
