    Just arrived at the range.
    No one here yet . Is there an office to check in with?

    Ahhh, you found it.
    What a day.

    Texas Brandon beat me by a few minutes. So did a nice young lady named Heather from work. Not many pics but I will let TexasBrandon post a video of him shooting a flintlock pistol. Very cool.
    Heather came out to learn how to shoot. She learned fast. This was her first magazine,
    [​IMG]and after 4 more,[​IMG]
    Shooting like a pro[​IMG]
    Only a few of us, but still a good time.

    She also shot some of Moonpie's pistols. Shot a ragged hole at 5 yards with his revolver. I think she liked it.
    She left fo work with a big smile. I think we have a convert.

    Al most forgot, Moonpie shot my little Henry survival rifle at about 100 yards. With a cross wind. Not bad at all [​IMG]
    8.5x11 target. .22 lr. It was sighted at 25 yds. with different ammo. Pretty darn good.

    Hot as balls out there today. I almost fell the hell out at the end. If those guys wouldn't have shown up I probably wouldn't have left, I don't like crowds, the wife was miserable, and I needed to call it the quits. Got the black powder revolver soaking in heat soapy water as we speak.

    It was hot. That ain't no lie.
    Felt sorry for your wife, I know she felt bad. Very nice lady too.
    I thoroughly enjoyed today despite the heat. Didn't leave until after 6pm. Went back to the pistol range for awhile.

    Got the black powder revolver cleaned up and shinier than it was before I took it out there. Dawn and some hot water did a fantastic job. Still a few black smudges but only on a few places on the brass. It's an Uberti made in 1996 based on the information I looked up.

    Awesome! looks like a great time. I like Shiny Top, lots of potential for that place.

    BlackPowder.jpg Edited the video and got a picture of the initial trigger pull. Loved that thing.
