    Also, me being a novice with black powder and despite being told the trigger is weird, screwing it up. Was still exciting.

    That is a good shot. I think we have a new powder smoke junkie amongst us. Black powder that is.
    When he fired, the smoke cloud blew back to the firing line. His wife said it stinks. But she smiled when she said it.
    She's a pretty good shot to by the way.

    Another fun and interesting range day!
    I'd never even heard of Shiny Top ranch before.
    Followed the directions and found myself at a lonely cattle gate that appeared to lead off down a mud road into a wooded pasture.
    Passing thru the gate and continuing on, I thought to myself Here I am driving uninvited into some ranchers cow pasture. I'm gonna get shot. LoL
    Turned out totally different once I found the place.

    As always it was fun shooting with y'all. Thanks for letting me shoot your toys.
    Jimmie, I gotta say I was impressed with that AR-7. That thing really shoots. Now I want one like it! Hahaha.

    Its always a treat for me to see and shoot at new places.
    Thanks for the invite.
    Very much enjoyed the day.

    Oh....not one single chigger bite. LMAO

    That really is a neat little gun. I love that Garand. Easier on my shoulder than I remembered. And that sterling was really cool. The trouble with range days like that, is so many things get added to my Christmas Wish list. Even after a shower, I still smelled the powder smoke from that flintlock. Love it.
    I went back to the pistol range later and releveled the bipod and dialed it in with the ammo we were using. Next time, it will punch that bullseye at 100 yards. It really likes that federal ammo.

    And no range officer breathing down your neck!

    Who needs air freshener when you shoot black powder.
