Because we had the time off, and because it was a nice day, Proud Hillbilly and I went out to the range. And because it was Veterans' Day (per the government), I brought a couple of old veterans to shoot.
The Springfield Model 1903 came out to play today, and no Kraut paper plate was safe at 100 yards.
Then it was pistol time, and I broke out an old vet that hasn't seen the light of day in years, a Smith and Wesson Victory Model revolver.
Tough to make out, but it's got the proper "US Property" stamp on the top strap, just ahead of the "GHD" inspector stamp which shows that government inspector Guy H. Drewry approved of this one.
I also sighted my Savage 110 Tactical in at 400 yards. Now I can ring the paper-plate-sized steel every shot, just like Old NFO and his trick SCAR.
Besides, someone told me once that the twenty-first century is when everything changes, and we've got to be ready.
