Nice Trigger!

Everyone that shot my M1 Garand said that at the Blogshoot last weekend. While I can say "I did that myself" that is technically true but the Instructors at the CMP watched everything and tested everything we did during that 3 day class. They had the tools and knowledge to insure you left with a great M1. 

Here is a link to the first post on that class. You want a Garand? Better hurry.

Overheard at Blogshoot...

"I have the biggest balls here." I cannot argue with that. They are made of lead to boot. Here is my friend Nancy showing everyone how to kick it old school.

After years of watching her load and fire this thing I have noted it is the same thing every time. Same stance, same hold, same loading procedure. Lessons for modern things as well.

It was worth the effort!

I have to say that Murph's Blog shoot was a resounding success! 

Good to see friends and, well, shoot stuff! Thanks Murph.

Oh Murph. The Car did fine. I know you were worried about it =)

My friend is at it again! The annual Blogshoot hosted by none other than Murphy's Law! Can't wait to see some good friends, eat, and shoot stuff! 

I always bring more stuff than I actually shoot however. I'm going to try to keep it simple this year. I don't get to do the long gun thing much around here so maybe a M-1 Garand and Winchester model 94 would be in order. 

Hope to see you there! Maybe I'll run into these two while I'm there.....

Don't Judge

If you are driving around and see another car that is out there and looks like crap? Don't judge. Award winning Mustangs are here now but not so much back in the day. The 1971? Mechanical restoration completed in 1982. Cosmetic restoration not until 1989. The 1966? Bit shorter, but still five years. Both took thousands of dollars too and a lot of effort. I lost my best helper along the way to boot. 

This 1964.5 Mustang to most would look like crap. I know better. It is running again. Soon.

Stuff You Don't Know

Huh. I just talked to Mr. Curmudgeon about the Winchester Model 94 Classic in 30-30 here. He reports he acquired it *cough* 30+ years ago and has never shot it.

We will rectify that tomorrow!  And yes it is a shunned after 1964 Model but guess what. It is here. We will go shoot it. Shooting long guns in a 25 yard indoor range is sorta like kissing your cousin. You don't want anyone to know you did it, but at least we can see if the thing functions and if it does, well. I'll stretch it out at Murph's Blogshoot

Oh, I will not be shooting these though! They came with the rifle.
