Lunch Alfresco

As noted previously, my time on the range has been, and continues to be, limited. However I noticed that the weather for Tuesday was predicted to be unseasonably warm, but wet. The hourly forecast at weather.com showed a predicted one hour break with sun, coincidently right around lunch time. So, it was decided, this was a good day to head out for another lunch at the range!

As we arrived the sun was shining brightly, but only for a short time. Quickly a cold wind came up, instantly dropping the temperature. Never ones to be deterred we shot anyway. It was a great joy to finally get back out and shoot for a bit, and to enjoy the outdoors and some nicer weather. I must say I was pleased to shoot fairly well too. No fancy exercises or bullseye shooting, just time spent behind the trigger. I did put in some strong and weak hand-only strings. We also tried out a new self-healing rubber target which I'll report on later. I got in about 100 rounds before lunch time was over and it was time to head back to the salt mines.

And talk about timing, as soon as we started picking up the brass the rain started up again.

  1. Good shooting. I hope to get back to the range this week now that my cold is starting to break.

    1. Thanks Andy. It really was a refreshing break from the routine. I also realized I'm way low on ammo supplies! Hope you got get out soon too!
