    Here's my today: Oh it was a Bee-A-You-Ti-Ful one!

    Went up to the shooting place. I had to. It's been a while since the nice weather has come. I look forward to a couple more nice days.

    Before we started I told my oldest he had to pick up trash that was there. While he picked up trash from previous non respectors, I setup the target stand and the rest of the goodies.

    The new stand. Setup and ready for action:

    The arsenal:

    It did get hot enough lying there on the road where I was sweating and my oldest was like "I'm hot".. duh son, take your shirt off. Had some long sleeved shirt on today. (DUH)

    Youngest. He was looking through the binoculars at trees, the sky, basically everything but the target.

    The 50 yard results.

    Top right: Only my son. .22
    Bottom Left: Only me. About 30 rounds of the .17 HMR
    Bottom Right: My son at 25 yards with the .22



    Did anyone else get out and Carpe Diem?

    I didn't have as much fun as you had, but I broke out the pressure washer and hosed the moss out of the joints in the driveway and hosed off the front porch walk. My wife started digging out all the dead flowers and such from our whiskey barrels and plant pots.

    Getting ready for Spring and getting our 2nd living room back; our deck!

    We live on the deck in Spring and Summer and go into mourning when the cold part of Fall and Winter come. It's like we lose a room in our houses for 6 months.

    Planning on going to the range tomorrow to try out a few rifles that I haven't had to the range yet.

    Those pictures give the impression that you were shooting across a road and without a backstop.

    There was a backstop, it's hard to tell.
    Not shooting across a road. This area is a dead end.

    Great shooting pictures. I am envious and need to get out in the woods more. I have a new 22-250 w/scope I need to sight in at about 200 yards.

    That place looks similar to the Timber area where I used to go.

    Well... I washed the moss and filth off of the wife's Excursion (took a LOT longer than I thought since washing the cars usually starts with my truck so I run out of time to get to the wife's rig), did some yardwork, played outside a bit with the kids, then ended the day on the porch watching the sunset while enjoying a fine see-gar. :D :thumbup:

    Saturday cleaned the 4runner inside and out...cleaned up the front yard, weeded and sprayed off the driveway, also finished building up my daughters AR.

    Sunday, cleaned the wifes car inside....raked the back yard, blew off the back deck, half-assed weeded the backyard and sprayed for weeds and poison oak.

    Good weekend

    Sorry to hear that. I have a relative who works for Lexus and he says you get screwed working on those.

    I did get to have a great day of baseball with the little guys and also work out in the yard.

    On March 6th, my wife and I were in Vegas. We went to see Bon Jovi, one of my wife's favorite bands. I must admit, it was a better show than I expected!
