Nice flinter and kit Bill

Purdy shootin' iron dar Bill.

I practiced shooting the Rifleman's Course a few days ago with my iron sight lever action .357mag. I shot:
4 for 4 standing at 40 yards
3 for 3 kneeling at 60 yards
1 for 2 sitting at 80 yards. I lost concentration on the 2nd shot.  grr
Prone at 100 yards it took me 6 shots to hit the gong, but I was out of the bullets that I started with.  I need to reload some more of those. After the first hit, I hit 5 straight.  So, it's possible that I could run the course, but I'll have bring my A-Game.  Either way it'll be fun.

We should send ya'll The Rat 3d from The Gathering shindig of couple weeks ago. Sure you'd have fun with that!   (SH)

I checked the extend forecast and the weather looks pretty good.  Highs in the 60's with a chance for some light rain showers. 
I started out with nothin' and I still got most of it left

Ozzy good to see you'll be here early. Yummy ice cream.

Gutshot, don't worry about the crappie.  We'll have enough to eat.

Knoll, we'd shoot a rat or at one at least. :)

Really looking forward to this. Ain't been on here much lately. Work and baseball keeps me occupied. Dave, do you have a sufficient backstop for a .300 Win Mag? That's my armament at the moment, unless I shoot my bow :D. Let me know what food is needed. I can bring a couple pounds of shrimp or whatever is needed.

Greg, thanks for bringing a couple pounds of shrimp.  I think my backstop will stop a .300 Win Mag.  It's a roll of hay backed by 2 layers of steel belt tires.  I guess will see.  haha

I'll get an up to date list of who's bringing what posted later this evening.

Joe, any type of sights on your rifle is OK.  AND, you can use up to 2 different rifles to shoot the course 2 times.  But, each round must be shot with one rifle start to finish.  Example: I will be shooting my Rossi lever action with iron sights for one round and my scoped Savage .243 for another round.

Well, bad news friends. Looks like I'm out.  A close family friend passed away.  With visitation Friday and funeral Saturday, I will not be able to attend.  Sure was looking forward to seeing everyone again but it's just not going to work out this time.
