A little anniversary powder burning!
« on: December 12, 2015, 05:37:25 PM »
Well yesterday was our anniversary...Mary has put up with me for 16 years. So what better way to celebrate it than to burn a little powder together! Sorry, there are no target photos. (I didn't want her showing me up to be honest.)

Here she is firing her S&W Mod66 .357Mag, she carried one like this when she was a cop a few years back. She also ran a few .22LR rounds through the H&R Mod 950 in the holster and warmed up her Bersa Thunder .380. She's a dead shot with em all!




She burned a few rounds through her [0306] SKS at 50 yards, all are inside the six inch bullseye. She has been using an aimpoint type sight but decided to put the original cover back on and use factory sights! We got her some glasses recently and she shoots much better now!

Congratulations ... I've finally landed one that loves to shoot too... They're not easy to find...sure makes it easy to explain... honey.... I need some more H4350...for your 243 and maybe some Varget and some CCI benchrest primers... care if I run down to Big R or Scheels..??. which unfortunately they dont have either in Missouri... which sucks big time and leaves only Bass Pro here in Springfield, MO...where you have to bend over in the checkout line if you want any "grease" ...if they even have what you're after. My fiancee  not only loves to shoot, but we have her 12 yr old daughter shooting too.. and she's even helping me reload... loves running the LNL AP....and checking COL with calipers..... You Gotta Keeper ...Better Keep Her
8yrs and 97 Days in the US Marine Corps, recalled Dec 1990 for Kuwait, orders cancelled before unit ship out date, tried to re enlist Sept 14, 2001... told I was too old...by one year. Dang It

Congrats Danny, great way to spend your anniversary!
It's sad that the motto of young Americans isn't "live free or die" or "I regret that I have but one life to give for my country" or even "ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country". Instead their motto is "pee yourself, shelter in place and cry for help". Pathetic.
