I'm actually doing surprisingly well for someone that has cheated death three or four times now. But I like to be fairly close to a pot since my last colon cancer surgery. I am taking a medication that helps a whole lot unless I go to bed early and forget to take it.
I don't hunt much if any anymore, and seldom go fishing, but haven't lost my love for doing either. But I mostly go to the range and shoot paper and steel. I still am fire forming loads for my 30/30 A.I. and my 30-06 A.I., and have that '06 sighted in just in case someone wants to take me hunting.
I just changed the rings on the 30/30 A.I. so I have no idea where it will shoot. And I put a recoil pad on it due to me getting skinnier than I was a few years ago. Not nearly the cushion on my shoulder now as before.
I do a lot of handgun shooting. One of the range officers and I were talking and I told him about my loads with a Lee 310 grain bullet and the H110 load. He said that he'd never fired one that heavy and the next time I came to the range I brought it. We were shooting steel @ 168 yards with iron sights. It took me two shots to get the range, the next four hit the steel sillouettes. The RO was impressed. He fired about six or eight rounds and had enough.
Handguns are fun!
