This part time job at 74 may have gone a year too long.
Then come home to my yard which is two lots in size and no riding mower here.
Took the 4" 686 out with 6.5 grains Unique and a 150 grain 358477 in a .357 case. Accuracy was great the first cylinder then I got in a hurry and it went down hill. You 'ol shotgunners know that when you weld the cheek to the butt stock and swing through the rooster and just as you mash the trigger you just lift your eyes a bit to watch the shot take the bird and it doesn't because you shot over the bird....revolver shooters can do the same thing! Think they call that "follow through"
and it is sure hard to remember some times.
Fun day anyway.

Rex I understand. Had to abandon the old two hand hold with pistols. Right side's weaker than the left and I pull left when I shoot now. So I shoot with just the right hand and do what I can.

You done with that big mowing thing now? Worry some you being out in all that heat.

Wade, don't worry about state workers, we aren't supposed to over achieve.    I'll mow until at least the first of September, maybe a little longer.

Well as long as you get a chance to slip out to your range and pop a few rounds.
