Its been awhile....
« 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.  :)

Usually I just take a couple deep breaths ::) ;)
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn

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.
