His Wife continues to feed me coffee (so if you get posts from me tonight around 0 dark thirty, its not my fault).
We load up to go to the range. He has a rifle case with him this time. So first up we shoot the Model 94, offhand and at 25 yds. Four rounds for him first and 4 rounds for me. The rifle worked well and did not make us look bad. What was in the rifle case he had? Well this (click to well you know):
Same thing only different! To preemptively quash comments about the obvious I will say that his is bigger than mine right now. By about 6 inches. That is his box of ammo for it, more on that shortly.
So after that we shoot 100 rounds of .45ACP, 100 rounds of 9mm, we go get a cheeseburger. It was a little dive, seats about 15, and was the best I have had in a while!
So about the ammo? And why is his rifle here now? First take a look:
Yes that box says $4.15 American for 20 rounds of 30-30 We are NOT shooting it! I am sure it would work fine knowing how scrupulously my friend stores ammo, but still. I paid 23 bucks yesterday for nondescript Remington stuff for us to shoot.
So why is his rifle here? "Well you need to make mine look like yours and the thing has not been shot in 30 years or so".
A task I will undertake for my old friend. Even if you do get the occasional "GET OF MY YARD" from him.
