a anvil like that is on my bucket list. my onlyest daddy had one, which my brother got. it now lives on a stump in the yard of a ranch in eastern Ore. Brother said i could have it if i left my pickup sitting where it was 100 feet away and carried the anvil to it. this was 40 years ago and it is still sitting there on that stump! 😁

Finished mounting the Malcome scope on the sharps, Just about finished with a netted game pouch, Waiting on a bit better weather then off to the range too sight in the scope, pretty excited wanted one of these scopes for a long time. Yesterday received second moderna wu flu shot at the V.A. arm a little sore but so far everything seems O.K.

Shot my first real Black Powder today. Been shooting Triple 7 up to now. Anyhow, all went well, but after driving yesterday 5 hrs round trip to Calgary I was very tired today and it shows in my targets. Warm day, almost 70F.

Pedersoli Frontier .50....Goex 2fg 60 grains, 50 yds off hand and 100 yds from 1 knee. .490 ball, .015 patch. Little bit of a cross breeze today which did not help with my fatigue level either. But I couldn't wait to try it. Added about 20 minutes to my 20 minute cleaning routine though. She's dirty alright. T7 cleans up much easier in my opinion. But...she went KABOOM, made lots of smoke and sent the other shooters running for oxygen....success!

50 yds, not bad.

100 yds, not good.

Shoot safe & as often as you can!

I won $209 Au at a team roping event !!
I rodeoed back in the late 90's and early 2000's...heeler as well, good job. A jackpot roping I assume? Think the most I won in a rodeo season was a couple thousand dollars but I likely paid twice that in travel to win it. :)

Screwed up!
I had a fun informative video all filmed and ready to get home to edit and realized I didn't have one of the two microphones turned on. All video clips came out quiet.
Arrrgh, oh well, I get to re-film it and shoot it all over again!

Today my oldest son asked who the Duke of Wellington was. Gave him a short description for the sake of accuracy, then started binge watching Sharpe. Been at it all evening!

Took my Hawken and Walker out to the range and made some smoke. Hawken shoots extremely well, Colt Walker has decided that now it is going to shoot low, very low. Last year I made a new front sight and got it pretty much spot on point of aim, however the gun safe fairies have obviously been hard at work during lockdown.

Went to shoot this morning but the wind was up, 20-30mph. blew my table and chair over and my coffee too. We just got on the lee side of the truck and shot the bull for a couple hours. Shot a couple of unmentionables to test for a few rounds. Didn't even attempt to load a bp gun.
