    Well I sent my target in today. Shot it yesterday as it was 74 and sunny here in upstate New York. Did not do so good. Learned another lesson this month and that is I need to practice my offhand shooting. I have not shot offhand in a couple of years. Usually practice with a bench and hunt with shooting sticks or some sort of rest on the treestand. :headslap:

    IF I can get out to shoot before too late I'd like to join, chances are I wont make it though. Just as well, I don't shoot enough these days and I haven't found my best load for my .50 much less zeroed the sight.. (BUT it would be fun to try so if I can get to the range in time you will get a target from me good bad or ugly)

    Question: my only smokepole has open sights, but the rear tang is adjustable for elevation and windage. It is a typical V sight, just with adjustment screws installed. Does this qualify for traditional or am I out because of that?

    (It is a Traditions Hawken model with left handed caplock and double set trigger)

    Adjustable sights are OK. Just as long as they are open sights.
    Please do join in the fun. It's as good a reason as any to get out and do a little shootin'. :thumbsup:

    Well, with all this so called heat wave here in the east; And me feeling a little spry. I made it to the range and fired my first three and only BP shots since my quadruple bypass on Jan 6 this year. My Lorraine (rifle) must'ave been a little angry with me 'bout that. She just wouldn't stay steady. But I did get three on paper so I was able to send it. I shot 30 rounds of 9mm just to make sure I could. But, the shotgun is still where it needs to be for quick retrieval. It's taken a bit but I'm slowly coming back to some stamina and strength. Hopefully I'll be back to 100% in a couple months.

    Jethro, I'll try to get a target to you late today or early tomorrow. Unfortunately, family commitments, the weather, and range closings have really limited my shooting time. Wouldn't you know it though, the best shooting weather occurred when I had to be away on family business.

    Got 'er done and target is in the mail, but Stevie Wonder would have easily outscored me for sure. You see, the area behind our berm and range is being logged and the range is officially closed to protect the loggers. Anyhow, I was allowed to shoot for a few minutes when the log skidder left the woods to unload and cut the logs to length. I may have shot even more poorly than I did today, but being rushed certainly didn't improve things. That's my story, er, excuse, and I'm sticking to it!
