Every once in a while during the day's filled with demolition / getting construction bid's/ dealing with adjusters , and looter's ! I stop and think about better times to come. Should be able to get away for a few days and head out to the country and check on the old place where nothing more exciting than a coyote in the barn or a coon in the garbage a big buck standing stout with his just out of velvet rack staring at you almost defiantly. Thats my Happy place  !  Where things are still normal .Hope Y'all have a good day .,,,,DT

Hope your days continue to improve Mr. Dusty.  It seems hard times have visited lots of good folks this year.  Got you and the good folks of Texas in prayers.  Keep at it and make a little time to burn some powder!!

I'm very much afraid that those folks in Texas, Florida and all those little Caribbean island are not going to be in a happy place for a long time.

Good on ya' Dusty, you deserve a little time to make smoke!

While it's not a '76, I'll be making some smoke at the TSRA regional tomorrow.  They send me out on the stage first to fog the mosquitos!  Grin

Dang, between the "skeeters" and the "love bugs" not even BP fazed them!  I've never seen such an infestation as we have this year.  All we had to do for lunch was to suck in a deep breath and chew!   Shocked Guess it's all due to all the water remaining from ole Harvey.

On a lighter note, I did shoot a clean match at the TSRA regional.  And it was still and humid enough to make lots of good smoke!  Grin

I know a crow gotta make a living too . But , when one lights on the yard gate post a couple hundred yds. away and my 45/75 1876 just happens to be leaning up against the porch rail . Well that's just asking for it ! Drew a tight bead , steadied myself and give him a barrel full. Wood flying crow squawking smoke drifting and he is on his way . Bet he knows that setting on that post aint Cool !  ,,,DT

Talking about a crow on a post. In 1973 on a cross country road trip I met a self taught gunsmith named Dale Freisen in Swift Current, Saskatchewan, he told me his crow story. In his youth he was wandering the rolling hills around Swift Current with a group of his friends. They were all armed with their trusty .22 rifles when they came across a crow perched on a fence post. They decided to 'execute' said crow by firing squad. They formed a line and performed the obligatory ready-aim-fire. As the sound of the ragged volley drifted away the crow flew away unscathed. However the cow on the other hill was not so lucky and staggered a bit and fell over. Dale had bought one sixth of a cow and had to work the summer to pay off his share. A simpler time, no police were called, the boys paid for their error in judgement. End of story.

I smacked a crow with my Browning 1886 SRC 45/70 sitting on a top tree limb once. It just went poof, a few feathers floating around to the ground. Never seen the like. The only thing I ever killed with my 86,  Angry stupid Illinois laws.

Walked into the gunroom and that 50/95 Express was just looking like aint it about time for some fire and smoke , absolutely ! Grabbed up the 76  .50 cal. about 30 cartridges and headed out for some shooting  . Shot standing ,  kneeling ,  sitting . Was my first shooting in a while , can smell hunting season around the corner . Hope Y'all are doing well Amigo's .,,,,DT

My word!  And here I figgured that there warn't anybody left who talks.  Course the weather aint been too coopertive either.  Been busy here getting our back porch deck done and the haying season is about half done already as the 2nd cutting is getting ready and the winter wheat is getting rliper and riper.  Been eyeballing my '76 lately and it has started to wink back at me so one of these days but right now the relative humidity here is just a tad over 9% at the County Airport so I think that it is a tad bit too dry for any fun.  Anyway, glad that someone is still around.

Reckon this summer has been a might busy for all.  I stop by each day to see if anyone has posted up, afraid I ain't had chance for any adventures with the 76 of late.  Like ya'll I am waiting for things to slow and the moderation of fall to come along with the hopes of getting out and burning some powder!  Glad all are doing ok, just busy!
