Not bad for a 10 yard target.... Now - what was the REAL distance? (LOL)
lol, yea the ball cap has to go. I cannot make up my mind on which hat, and best place to order it. I am leaning towards a brown tricorn from Townsends. That target is 50 yards and rested.Not bad for a 10 yard target.... Now - what was the REAL distance? (LOL)

I'm learning from the older guys at my club. You guys are irreplaceable in this sport and a number of other things. I learned how to pasture raise hogs, hunt n fish from my dad and I started learning to build, from another older fellow starting at 16, and continued to work and learn from him to when I was 34, building and finishing homes. I loved building homes, and miss working so much. I became a very good and time efficient framer and interior trim carpenter and was offered numerous other jobs, but I stuck with the old man. I always had full weekly paychecks, insured, and he always kept me in a vehicle. He paid me very well and gave bonuses when I deserved them.Excellent shooting!
Hey! I resemble that remark! Interesting thing happened about the time I turned 50. My hangun groups started stringing horizontally. At the eye doctor's getting fitted for some new glasses, I discovered that my master eye had switched places. The doctor told me that wasn't possible but on doing a little research I found out that it was possible and happens to some folks at age 50-ish. After lasik surgery, that went away and now all I have to blame is my gun...Ha ha.
I think Newtire might be referring to his own aging.
