Lack of Posting

Sorry for the lack of posting.  Busy busy night.  Had to leave work at 3:30.  Woke up this morning with a sore back.  Today while working on some computer equipment, I bent down to pick something up and ended up with the knot from hell in my back.  It was bad enough I couldn’t really stand to sit.  I went home and got a hot pack on it, popped some ibuprofen, and I could function again.  Went to Pistol People to pick up Bitter’s present.  Came home, wrapped it, then went to Silhouette.  Got the chicken pin.  Shot lousy on rifle because my back is still kind of stiff.  Switched to pistol.  Got a 17 animals out of 40 tonight, which sucks compared to the guys who have been doing this for years, but hey, the animals are about the size of a 3×5 card cut into various animal shapes as 25 yards.  My groups with pistol at that distance are about six inches across, so I’ll take 17.  My goal is to be able to consistently break 20 with pistol.   To do that, I need to work on my trigger pull big time.

    I think I’m as excited by the present as I am that you wrapped it. :)

    Bitter will blog it this weekend. If I say now, she’ll know.

    When they ain’t lookin’ try some good ol’ snake shot in that pistol.

    There’s no such thing as fighting fair in a gunfight, else the chicken could have shot back.

    Hey! just teasing! Congratulations on your chicken and hope you reach your goal. However, be warned, nothing is so frustrating as attaining your goal only to discover it didn’t make you happy and now you have a higher goal. It’s just like golf, only you don’t have to wear funny pants.

    Hahaha… I’ve fired snake shot out of my .44 that I’m not sure could knock over one of those silhouettes at 10 feet. Not sure if .22LR snake shot (they do seem to make it) would do much at 75 feet.

    Reminds me of a game I once heard of called shotgun chicken, where you start out some distance apart from another player, each taking a shot and moving a few paces forward. First one to bail out from the pain loses. Needless to say, this isn’t safe gun handling practice, but I’ve heard from more than a few people that such a contest is indeed practiced.

    Can’t say I’d do it though.
