    You n me both!! Thats why Im never leaving the valley of the sun! It may get sweltering hot here in the summer but at least I rarely have to deal with sub freezing temps and the sun shines almost constantly!

    I' was going to try to use the old .45 Ky Pistol. I fell hunting and tore up my left shoulder again. It was fine for a while there. I'm slowly rehabbing but can't hold a rifle or much of anything supported by the left arm. A pistol should be OK but I'll have to wait 'til next time. With the arctic side of Al Gores' Global Warming crossing PA, I'm going to opt for February's winter arrival. "Til then, I'll keep up with the rehab at the gym. Good time shooters.

    I currently have only two entries for January. Log cutter and Russell Schaffer. Am I expecting any more targets to date? (I realize you still have two days to shoot. I'm just trying to make sure I didn't miss anyone I should have gotten)

    Terry, the weather did not allow me to get out and shoot this month's target and I had surgery on both feet this past Monday so I won't make it. Probably not February either however the surgery went real well. Two bunions fixed and the other eight toes straightened. I have surgical shoes on but I can walk without crutches. So all is well here and I will be shooting in March for sure. :thumb:

    Terry, My range is effectively closed due to snow & ice covering both the shooting lanes (25-, 50-, 100 yd.) and the target mounting arrangements. In spite of that, I'll try to get my targets to you before 1/31, but I'll ask you not to score or consider them as "record" shots as I'll do this indoors with a CF pistol (offhand, of course) just to keep my hand in.

    I've had 2 repairs to the left and one on the right shoulder. I know the drill and problems. I'm able to raise my arms overhead; reach both arms across the back to the opposite hip; hold my arms in front and rotate the thumbs up & down, but have a little pain (more on the left upper arm and shoulder. I have pain and can't reach plates, up, into a cupboard. So I have some strength and flex rehab to do. If it doesn't come around, then the knife. In your 70's that's no picnic. I held up the .45 perc KY pistol and I could load it. I'll see in Feb. Thanks for the good wishes.

    Adui, I shot my target Saturday, if the polar vortex didnt freeze the mail, you should have it by the weekend.

    Terry, I didn't get to shoot January and have missed a couple of others. Just for fun, I'm going to shoot the January target and maybe one of the older ones I missed. Maybe we could have a Ground Hogs day shoot and just do like the movie and have a do over.

    Good morning my friends! My apologies for being MIA the last few days.

    January shoot had three targets received> I'm waiting on MDK's to post scores, the third I have is Mavens, who will get an honorable mention for finding a way to shoot in spite of the extreme weather. (Nice score BTW off hand CF pistol so no score here but excellent shooting!

    Next months will be as suggested, a Groundhog day do over of any of the last three months. Since this is a do-over shoot you may enter multiple times. I will score each month as it was posted. (I will be posting full details (hopefully) later today, with target links.

    More to follow!

    Good shooting with you Russell.:) Some of the others are on the mend and if the weather stays fair we'll have some competition this month.

    I was wondering why you had not posted the January scores so I could collect my last place trophy when today my target was returned to me as undeliverable. I dont know. I folded up my returned envelope and put it inside of a freshly addressed envelope and I am sticking back in the mail tomorrow. Hoepfuly it will get there soon. Because I know everyone is sitting on the edge of their seats awaitng the presentation of winners.
