Good idea for a thread.
Took the Mrs to the horse pustule for her scheduled Ultrasound.
What a waste they wouldn't even let me in, so I wasn't much help.
WE did find a new BBQ joint though. They had an Aussie Ginger beer, not ginger ale, which was excellent "Bundaberg".

That ginger beer sounds good. Back when I was in the Navy, we stopped at Dunedin New Zealand, and Sydney Australia loved bought of those stops.

Filled my doe permit first think this morning, good size deer, but I have to say it's the first time I have ever recovered a bullet from my 270 win. But it's also the first time I ever used the 130 grain bullet.always used the 150 before. Going to weight it and see if it's lost much. The doe was about 130 yards quartering away from me, bullet went in just behind right front shoulder, and all most came out .stuck in hide of her neck, about halfway up her neck, she had her head down
Eating some grass.
To night temperature dropping to 28 degrees, hight tomorrow 41.

Any pictures of the doe?  I love deer hunting.  It’s always a great time just sitting and walking the woods and the laughs we all have back at deer camp in the evening.  It’s not just about the hunt to me.

nice to know some are succeeding at culling the overpopulation , i have friends here that have done so but too many didnt get one , our harvest is down 20% this year - more car/deer crashes coming this year - could have got four with my car on the way home tonight - fraid my insurance company might have thought me being a bit of a hog so i stopped ,

43 deg today in Blue Ridge, GA.  High today 62.

I’m taking a break from shooting matches, shot 6 in the last 3 weeks.  You guys who hunt probably think I’m nuts wasting all those bullets on paper.  Hard to explain the addiction unless you’ve tried it.  I’m sure that is the same for hunting.  

Good luck with the hunt.

I use to shoot on winter indoor pistol league, for many years. Bad ventilation systems got to me gave it up. Lots of fun though.


Posted By: britrifles
Date Posted: November 22 2020 at 6:06am
I know what you mean.  The indoor ranges being built now have excellent ventilation. 

Indoor public ranges make me nervous.  Too many times I’ve seen idiots with no idea what they are doing.  Pointing the gun in about any direction. I saw one guy crossing his thumb of his support hand around the other side of the pistol on top of his grip hand and before I could get to him he about took his thumb off with the slide.  Other guys trying to see how fast they could shoot (and not hit the target)...    On the other hand,  there are only serious shooters at rifle matches who respect all the safety protocol to the letter.  I can trust them. Im sure it’s the same at pistol matches.

The one range had the return air duct directly behind the shooters, so all the smoke and lead dust from the hole line was drawn right back at you. After a night there, you came home with a taste in your mouth like you ate a brick of 22's.

so in keeping with the morning coffee theme - i ordered another supply of black rifle company beans tonight , im getting down to my last bag .......will grind some in the morning and start my day , 

i just finished my last ceegar of the day and had a nice conversation with my good friend in wisconsin - we are both enjoying drizzly weather , but its a bit above freezing so not too uncomfortable , 
i drove home in heavy fog tonight from dinner with two minnesota friends , better than two weeks ago when i was in the blizzard with a flat tire but still not my favorite drive , 

our thanksgiving plans got changed today when my BIL announced he tested positive and they have to back out of having the family at their house ...so i dont know yet where we will be on thursday - i would be OK with staying home, sleeping in , doing nothing , but i doubt my wife will leave it at that , be at my daughters an hour away in the cities on saturday , 

hope all of you enjoy your thanksgiving this year in spite of the 2020 stupidity ,

A much milder day in Blue Ridge today.  52 deg and sunny.  Last day of work this week.  I’ve been very fortunate to be able to work from home since March.  A few more years and I throw in the towel....

Every night a flock of Turkeys walks down our driveway, passes the back of the cabin, down the mountain and crosses the creek and heads off along the other side of the creek.  Might be one less turkey in that group this year....

This group of Turkeys has a few that are completely white, no colour at all.  Not seen that before.

Good evening all, Thanksgiving morning coming up and I just have to be out in the woods tomorrow morning for a couple of hours of hunting. My first ever deer was had on thanksgiving morn many years ago. Along for the ride was my stepson. We were both excited. It was my first with my 1916 Sht LE .303 as well. He now lives in Florida and will not make it up this year but I'll still go out and try to fill a tag. Enjoy the bird tomorrow.

continuing the theme - im sitting here enjoying my morning coffee , black rifle company AK Espresso , ive been trying a bit of each of their offerings and have so far preferred this and their SS versions to the other four ive tried , 

i broke my glasses i use for the computer :<{ - ive just placed an order to replace them , funny how you get particularly attached to small things , when gone they leave a hole in your comfort area - at least in front of the computer for now , ive taped them together sorta but they dont feel right , at least i cant break my thermal metal coffee mug :>}

our thanksgiving plans with the extended family fell thru completely now , BIL tested positive and his was the home we were all going to , attempts at last minute alternative didnt feel right without that 1/5 of the family on her side , 
my siblings are in another state 300 miles away so we seldom think of that trip with this time of years unpredictable weather and our narrow window of time , in the past got caught in snow storms , ice storms , dense fog and such that caused us a lot of distress we dont need for the holidays , 
nothing to do but have a nice turkey meal - just the two of us , but im OK with that , still have the daughters place on saturday with our kids and grandkids to look forward to tho , 

work at the gunrange has slowed for the season so i only worked 3 days rather than 5-7 this past week im OK with that after the sight-in crunch of the past few weeks , 
and might be down to 2 days this next week , after that who knows might just be a weekend or 1 day every two weeks when we have a jackpot shoot - im OK with that too 
i have a job if i want it at the Luth AR facility that is located on the gunclub property , they told me they would use me when available , i just have to let them know but might wait till after the new year to look at this , 

enough rambling , coffee is gone , wife is napping after overnight shift , time for me to do something constructive i guess , i have a brass buttplate that needs a bit of polish

the black one in the photo is a Hatson, made in Turkey (they also make shotguns).  it was around 250.00 if I remember correctly.  my grandson has a Beeman 1328 which is a nice gun for less money.  they both
require pumping up an internal reservoir either with a high pressure hand pump or a special high pressure air compressor.  the Hatsan takes 2900 psi to max fill.  The Beeman takes 2000 psi.  the hand pumping gets old so we use a compressor and when we go into the field carry a bottle or 2.   other types of pellet guns use break barrel to pump it up or other methods.

there are websites like this one for air rifles, if I was shopping again I would check them out for advice on what is what in you price range.  I think Benjamin still makes good air rifles.  there are big bore air rifles that hit harder than some centerfire rifles.  I went with .177 cal because I have 20,000 or so pellets.  my grandson got a .22.  his .22 seems to hit metal plates harder but mine will punch through and his won't.  I think it's because mine has a small diameter round and holds 50% more air pressure than his does.

I thought that air rifle looked like a Feinwerkbau. The rear sight looks the same as on our 300S. These are excellent rifles.
During the 1st confinement here in March, we set up a 10 metre range in the garden. 
Shooting with my daughter and my wife, we started a regular competition. The "sniper" challenge. One cold shot each, no practice shots on 10m rifle targets. Highest score wins.
My 9 year old daughter is doing great. She won the very first competition.


After this first effort, we made some adjustments because we were all to the left.
I managed to catch up on the next one. But it's close!

Zed that's awesome.  looks like you're both snipers.  they are amazing rifles.  the one I got from my dad when he passed hadn't been fired in 25 0r 30 years and it works great with no work having to be done on it.  I read that they didn't use rubber seals but machined metal fittings so nothing to rot out.  

these rifles were born for 10 meter competition and that's what my dad used it for.  he would practice at night by standing at one end of the house, opening 2 doors and shooting down the hallway, thru the kitchen, another room and across the garage into a metal trap he welded up.  when he decided to shoot he would yell out and you ventured around at your own peril.

My wife bought our FWB 300 S from our gun club. It was the 14th July dinner party at the club last year and they were selling off some of the old club rifles. 
She comes back to the table and say's, "I've bought an air rifle". 
I say "what type"
She say's "No clue but it looks nice"
I say "how much"
50 Euro's! Great!
I did have to replace the spring and seal kit. The spring was broken one turn from the end and the piston end seal was destroyed. Got the kit of parts from Germany. Cost more than the rifle!
It's quite complicated to strip down when compared to an Enfield.
They are proper match quality from the early 70's.

Back in the late 70's NASA ordered the swiss Army knife
For the Astronauts to carry into space.

Nice. There's actually a couple of "holster type" belt carriers for both that & a flashlight. Worth checking them out.

I'll have to check that out.
I actually bought a knife / flashlight/ battery pack
That I thought would be my perfect tool, but because of
The location of the flashlight switch, I was turning it on and not knowing it.

This looks like it might work, its cutaway at the switch.

when I closed on the house 2 1/2 years ago I did a preclosing inspection and the porches had a brand new coat of paint.  I (retired VP of Construction) asked if he used concrete stain and he said "no, just paint".  I just smiled.

Got my bike ride in this morning. Seen one deer standing on the edge of the road, I stopped to get a picture, and it took off.
Heavy frost on the fields this morning. Stanley's pond is getting a skin of ice on it.[IMG]upload
