Had a al from #1 son the range was newly open. No rests on the benches and my freshly restored 1945 #4T set. This one took over 12 years. First three shots were on or near the bull so two click windage and one click range.  Lots of wobbling but collated pretty well with the bore. A little tuning on the new magazine is still needed and on my self but no excuses. 1960s HXP at 100Y.  Next trip a proper rest and less shaking from nerves.

Thank you for all the support over the last year.



#1 Son


He also cooks.

As an aside Peter Laidler informed me the scope has a new erector set after it came through his hands. It's on his books and he sent me a copy of the work sheet but that was two PC's ago and I can't just lay hands on it although I did post it here a few years ago when It came to me.

It's great to get a project finished and down to the range. You must be happy after 12 years!
well done MJ.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Glad to see you got out MJ.  

I was pretty fortunate, the range never closed thru the COVID craziness.  They did require masks in the club house (no longer now) and for a short while, masks were required down on the firing line except for when you were actually in position to shoot.

It was a tough haul there for a time, I almost got caught in Central America Feb. 2020 and just made the last plane out before all the airlines closed.


Boredom gave me time finish some projects and do some shopping, mostly with members here .
