Let's go !
« on: October 27, 2021, 12:39:48 PM »
Now that our recent move is all but complete and the weather is much more "old man" friendly, I can begin to focus on our new shooting ranges.
We've been up to our eye balls in this relocation project for more than 2 months now and we should be able to wrap it up this weekend. During this whole time my airgun time has been little to none. That's not to say it hasn't been front and center in my mind. Countless times I have stopped in mid stride and said to myself... "Wow, that would be a great place to set up a bench or a target". Another thing I have yet to do since getting back into airguns is a bait station so that's another plan. Heck, I even bought a ding donger a few years back and never even took it out of the box.
This new place has sooooo much potential for shooting lanes ranging from 100yd. field to, up to, 45yds in the thick. I even have a large dirt birm for shooting bigger stuff that was once used for shotgun turkey shoot events.
I have an old wooden child's play set that will be converted to a sniper's hide located center property with clear 360* access.
So, in this thread, please join Betty Lou and I on the next phase of the rest of our lives..... Let's go shoot something !
Or better yet, how 'bout we all just go outside and play with our BB guns?

With the new bar/mancave, our airgun arsenal has been split between there and the house. Starting this thread this morning induced the urge in me to shoot a gun. So, on my lunch break I gobbled down a meatball samich, grabbed the Hatsan 1KV .25 off the wall rack in the living room and stepped out to the chair and table on the covered front porch (just one of the many vantage points) and racked off 10 or 12 shots downrange (maybe 35yds) at a large pine tree. That is going to be a great spot for grab and go shooting. Maybe a good place to set up a tree rat bait station and get some videos with the scope cam...  ;)
I'm thinking the Evanix AirSpeed might be a good scope cam gun. No muss, no fuss, just push 'play' and blast away.
