Always get the water for the coffee upstream from the herd.

As soon as Rita gets home we are going grocery shopping for us and her brother, will involve most the afternoon and 3-4 stops.

My NRA yearly membership is up in July  :-\
I'm undecided "if" I'll rejoin ....
The magazine (AR) is not very good , I have enough Chinese knockoff knifes , ballcaps which I don't even wear and an el cheapo
quasi so called range bag (also unused)

Seems to me they could , exclude all the bait kitsch , the SEVERAL mailings to rejoin postage ( even though I'm already a member) 
 the phone calls 2-3 times a month  ( again I'm already a member) !
and use the money for the real fight  :(

when planets align...do the deal !

Got tired of Wayne years ago, they need a lot of work to get me back.  I think they are just another swamp monster, window dressing to make some people rich.  Have had a lot mad at me for that for years, seems more are seeing what I saw years ago.

My rant for today, much needed rain, not sure how much, have to put a new soup or rather since it's in the kitchen, kraut can out.  Don't need it to 100ths, I can see a 1/4 or 1/2 inch close enough.

Got new coffee will open tomorrow, do I need Fruit Loops to go with it? ::)

Main reason I was a NRA member as it was required for the Range I was member of....
I quit that membership after 2018 when they went to $200 a year + the NRA admission ... The County range is $12 all day and is both more modern and closer.
beside I have my own home gallery ....sooooo  Sayônara.

50 miles away, can get 300 yards, unlock the gate, backstop rebuild a few years ago, 50 yard range behind the trailer house.   

Second one can go 800, is 200 miles away, but a cabin I can sleep in, fee is bring a couple ovens and fix a couple meals.

My friend, who I reload for, scored us 1000 LR primers and 1000 SP primers. That should keep us shooting for a little while.

Went to the Fund Raiser supper for the Burr Nebraska VFD, had frog legs, cow nuts, cow tongue, rabbit and other good stuff.  Daughter, her husband and their 4 year old daughter live there and are on the VFD.    Saw several people I used to work with, related to, or old customers.   

Rita ate shrimp. ;D

Money to go to infrared search device, wish I had won the lottery and could have wrote them a check.

Sunshine and 76 here, high supposed to be 92. Biscuits and gravy for breakfast. Extra chunky gravy, won't have to strain it to find the sausage!

Slim, didn't you use a Win 94 in 38-55 at the muster a year or two ago? How'd it do for the 300 yard gong? What I'm reading online says if I sight it 1 1/2" high at 100, it'll drop something like 75 inches at 300! Don't think the standard barrel mounted sight will get me that much elevation.

Having some iced tea, now.

It is a 1893 Marlin in .38-55 w/ 26" barrel. The 250gr bullet is probably going 1400 fps. I think I raised the sight all the way and walked it in. Those targets are at least 36" tall.

Thanks, Slim. I was going to use my 30-30, but due to my usual procrastination, I find myself without enough proper bullets for it, and no mold. Was going to try and use some 180 grain rn from a Lee mold, but...the nose is too long to feed through the action. But I do have a couple hundred bullets for the 38-55, and a set of dies I've had for 20 years, and never used. Only have 60 cases for it, but I've got a couple hundred once fired 30-30 cases someone gave me I can re-size.
