I haven't been shooting in quite a while, but today is the day.
Paper plates and steel targets are trembling in fear, Cornhusker is in a paper punching mood today, and it's supposed to be in the 60s. (high of 19 tomorrow).
Now all I need to do is decide what I'm going to shoot.
Pistol?
Shotgun?
Rifle?
All the above?
Yeah maybe all the above..................
Anybody else pulling triggers this weekend?

Well, by the time my neighbor got here, the temp was starting to drop and the wind was coming up.
We loaded up 3 revolvers and 4 rifles and hauled them over to the shooting bench.
We put a few rounds through my Uberti .357 but by then, the wind was blowing about 30 mph straight into our faces and the targets kept blowing off the wire.
It was a lazy wind, the kind that cuts right through you rather than go around.
We packed it in, maybe try again next weekend.
We have a few cold days ahead of us and possible some snow too.
It's no wonder I get rusty in the winter. :(

No shootin' since fall as well. 8" of snow now topped with rain at my range. It's just not fun trudging through the muck. I haven't shot my 45 yet. Husker... where's your " spiring is just around the corner" pic?

It was a wonderful day today here in Misery, nice and warm, upper 60's light wind. I really wanted to do some shooting, but instead I spent the day breaking down all four tires off my old K10 to get them swapped onto the wife's Cherokee as her's are purt near bald to the point I don't want her driving in rain with them, and rain is in the forecast. I bought one of the Harbor Freight manual tire changers, and boy let me tell ya when they say manual, that's not an understatement. If I didn't have tons of tire experience in the past I would have gotten pretty darn frustrated and tossed the thing onto the scrap heap. But knowing all the tricks of the trade as I do, it only took me most of the day to get all four off the rims and loaded into the Jeep. Taking them over to the tire place to have them mounted though as they balance them, something I'm not set up to do. These were C load range tires, so pretty stiff. If I had one decent tire iron to use along with the HF setup it would have been gravy, but I left them at a friends house in Kansas when I fled the state, that was about 10 years ago so doubtful they're still there lol.
