I brought my wife to the ER early this morn and they just called a surgeon in. She is being admitted so it doesn't look like i will be attending.

 :'( Hope everything is going okay. Good luck, and hope for a speedy recovery.

Much better than last time 🤪. Wind will be the biggest obstacle I am guessing. But will be good practice!

Yep. Forecast just revised to show winds at 5 to 15 mph. My in-laws live on a hill in central Wisconsin, so I know what that's like! We'll still have fun!

Oh, and I'll bring both of my chinese muzzle speed meters. If anyone wants to buy my 2nd one, I'll sell it for $25. I bought one from China, and it took 2.5 months to arrive. I thought it wasn't coming so I bought a 2nd one. And of course, 2 days after I ordered the 2nd one, the first one arrived.  ::)

I hope everyone stayed dry today and had fun!


We're still in the hospital.  Joanie will be having surgery on Tuesday.  They need to wait because of the blood thinner she's been on.  (history of strokes)They are injecting antibiotics through her stomach.  Dr says they will start removing the gallbladder Liproscopic, but if the infection is bad, they will open her up.


The woman new something was amiss and made sure all the laundry and dishes were caught up.  She even had a bag packed!


I still scolded her for not having the lawn mowed and the firewood stacked.  Slacker. ;)

Yes, we had a great time! I took a few pics and I'll post them up tomorrow. Hope everything goes well for you wife, and let her know that the firewood will be waiting for Tuesday night! LOL. Hope she has a speedy recovery, but it will likely take some time.

Thanks for the update Carl.
We had a great time and stayed dry. Thank you for having us all over Brandon. I don't think my wife took many pictures unfortunately except for our dog near the pig. Looking forward to seeing pics the other guys took.

OK, I reset my password, so I'm logged in again.

Sorry to hear about Joanie, Carl. I hope she comes through OK. She is a great woman.

I told Stanzi about your chickens, Brandon, and she was kind of sad she didn't get to pet them. Next time, maybe! (and maybe she can meet Hunter, too)

Jerry, how 'bout getting the dog + pig pic uploaded from Nicole?

Here are mine. I think the versions in the Illinois Airguns Facebook group are higher resolution.

Great pics Jeremy, it was good to see you there. The pics of the chickens and the "buffet" made me smile.  :D I'll post up the dog and pig pics once we upload them, haven't seen them yet.
Damon was a good sport when we made his shooting table the buffet table.
I hope your wife is OK Carl, please keep us posted.

Thank you Jeremy for posting the picture. Yeah maybe next year I will have a harness for the pig so I can bring her down to the shooting lane. She is a big cuddler haha, should have chickens again also. Tho can't guarantee the same ones pictured 😋. Glad Jerry's dog got to stretch it's legs out for a bit. Speaking of witch next year we will rotate it so we can smack that gong at 150-200 yards maybe. Great turnout for the first one. Wife already said I am ok to do another this spring.
