Default Shoulder Therapy

A friend lives on the Oregon coast and invited me to shoot at his club Thursday. I took my Ruger#1S 45-70 because I hadn't shot it in a couple of years. I won't let a lapse like that happen again! I fired about thirty rounds, my friend ten or so. I use Trail Boss powder now that I am more seasoned and have some arthritis. Punching a large hole in the target is very satisfying and the reduced loads allow me to keep enjoying the big bores. I am glad I went when I did, the infamous Oregon rain is back after a week of sunshine.

Dear God please protect our troops, especially the snipers.

Sounds like fun! I use either Trailboss or ADI 2207 for reduced loads with my Ruger #1H 450/400 NE 3”. Even managed to knock over a fox with it at 20yds a couple of years back. Geez, he came up fast after the second whistle! Don’t think he knew what hit him! Impressed my son no end, too, after a fruitless morning searching for deer.

I have been using Trail Boss in my 45-70 for years and it makes shooting it fun. I also have a barrel for my TCR 87 rifle in 7mm Remington mag that is dedicated to Trail Boss powder really nice for plinking.

All I can say is I am jealous! My club, and every other place to shoot in my area is locked up tight. Can't wait untill our Governor wakes up and smells the coffee so he will let us open things up again. You guys are really fortunate to still have a place to go.

Well lucky for me I live on a small acres in the country and I have my own shooting range so I just walk out my front door about 50 yards to my shooting bench and I am ready to go. We have a city county range out by the lake but it is about 35 miles to it, only went out there once to many guys with AR 15 and ammo to burn sounded like a war zone and this was during the week no telling how it would be on weekends.

Now I'm REALLY jealous! Not only a private bench rest, but away from the war zone.....

When the gun range is open, I mostly go during the week with my flintlocks. Pretty much have the place to myself then. I miss messin' with the flinters alot. It's going to be torture once that 36 caplock I got from nseries gets here, and I have to stand around waiting for the gun club to reopen the doors before I can play.

I have to brag a little, My Grand son gave me the bench rest it is solid garnet made for a machine shop to set delicate instruments weight 1200 lbs they were going to toss it out so he loaded it in the back of his truck and brought it to me, no movement with that one Smile
