Title: Its been awhile....
Post by: Rattiac on July 18, 2021, 08:43:25 PM
Its been a stressfull week,   being in charge of the shop.  So I knocked the dust off the shotgun.
Ran a box of 1355fps through it. 
Checked my sights,  a tad low but centered. 
Then ran some low brass as fast as I could pull the trigger.

I forgot my ear muffs but ran with it. Wont do that again.

It's funny how shooting can relieve stress, even if you don't shoot anything.  :)

I really like shooting also. It is a good stress reliever, reloading your own ammunition will help also

I enjoyed shooting, especially when I first became a cop, we would go to the range pretty often. As I got older I made less time for it and only went once a year to qualify with my service weapon. Also, living in the city, there is nowhere close that I can go and just let off a few rounds.

 No No ? Just in Kentucky where the whiskey is good I guess.  ::)  It's so smokey here you can't take deep breaths. We flew over the big fire south os Tahoe on our way back from Texas last night. It's big!

Here is a video of my moving target out back...12 volt car battery, Chrysler cooling fan motor.   Wireless if you have someone to operate it....foot controls if shooting alone.

60 acre back yard...." oh give me a home where the deer and turkeys roam" ;D

I have deer and turkey, fox and all that stuff too.....I also have neighbors 20 yards away :). I have about 3/4 acre, I live on the border, last house in the city. Nowhere near as cool as some of you guys, but if you have to live in the city, you can't beat it.

very nice, lets see you shoot at, would love t have a scaled down version. I have to set up then tear down my targets when I'm done shooting  bummer

That is really cool! I want one. It would be fun to make it so a set of metal silhouettes spin as it goes by.

Here is a video from the Bianchi Cup, ..this is the "mover event" (1 of 4 events).  Plan on attending it next May in Columbia, Missouri.  Built that mover to practice.

Last time I shot the event was 28 years ago....here is short story related to the event:

That looks like serious stuff. I never competed at anything near that level and that probably explains why I won some.  ;D

Received this the other day when a relative passed.  They were cleaning house.  He had an ammo room .

 Sorry about your relative. I headed to a service from one of my teaching friends later today.

You'll have fun with that. I have one just like it. Take some weights to set on the legs or longer spikes and watch out for you shins when you launch the clays!  :o :)

Decided to put it together just so see if any parts are missing. Luckily he kept it all there.
This unit has a pull cord instead of a foot pedal.

You'll have fun with that. Makes me want to get mine out. A friend has one that mounts on his receiver hitch. The clays make a mess but dissolve over time. I don't know how the Feds feel about it now.

The last I shot clays was over at my mother-in laws house and it did make mess, she wast happy :)
