I went to the range this afternoon for over 7 hours. 2 other people showed up as well. The range is going to be closed starting next week
and lasting until August because the surrounding timber is going to be logged. I shot 4-.22 pistols, 3-9mm's, 2-.45's, 3-.380's, and my .38 super.
I also shot my .44 CVA single shot rifle and the .45-70 Ruger #1. There was abundant sunshine and nary any wind. It was a great day!

I went to the range today for 4 hours and I had it all to myself. Today was a .22 l.r. day with the Ruger Precision rifle, Martini Model 15,
Sig 226 conversion,Browning Hi Power conversion, Browning 1911A1, and the S&W Model 41. Somebody had given me some Federal
Lightning ammo so I shot that. The Sig andBrowning conversions didn't like it at all and for once the 1911A1 was finicky, too.
It didn't matter with the rifles or the Model 41. After shooting 200+ rds. through the Precision, it was a shock to pull the trigger
on the Martini; it was much more difficult on the single shot and the iron sights took some getting used to after using the
scope on the Ruger which is only a 2x7. All in all it was a great day.

|Ex 49er||The conversion for the Hi Power is a Ciener. I try to get to the range once a week. Because of Covid, the range is only open for range masters.|

Been out to the range some, no less than before the bug to be truthful. Last go around with some reduced loads in Finn Mosin and some bullseye practice w Ruger Mk3 22-45.
Ex 49er, not to start a thread drift but what make 22 conversion you have for the hi power? You can send thru the message system as I may have a few more??

I went to the range today for almost 7 hours. I made a fire in the stove. It was raining most of the day and only two other people showed up.
I became better acquainted with the Sig .380. I also shot the Colt .22 Diamondback, S&W M41, S&W .38 Victory Model, Glock 26, Browning
Hi Power 9mm, Beretta M92 9mm, Ruger #1 .45-70, CVA Scout .44mag, and a Hopkins & Allen falling block .22 rifle. Of the 3 9mm's I shot
the Browning was the most accurate. Only hiccup is that the extractor needs to be replaced and it is the old style long one like the 1911 that
fits inside the slide.

I went back up to the range this morning with another load of firewood. After cutting and stacking the wood I set out a couple of targets.
Today I brought my Sig 226 .22 conversion kit, Sig 232 .380, the Browning .22 1911A1, and the Ruger .22 Precision rifle. I left all my
spare magazines at home, so I only had 1 magazine for each gun; shooting was a little slower because I had to reload after each
string. Halfway through shooting, somebody else came up with some black powder pistols. After he left I was there for another
1.5 hours. The fog lifted, the sun came out and it was a great day.

I went up to the range this morning. I cut up some firewood and stacked it in the house. After putting up targets I shot the Browning
1911A1 .22, my 1969 Hi Power .22 conversion kit, and my Ruger .22 Precision Rifle. After an hour of shooting a friend and
some guests showed up to shoot. I let them shoot my rifle and pistols. I almost didn't bring the .22 1911A1 home,
because one of the guests loved it so much. Life is Goode!

I went back to the range today. I shot the same guns I shot last time and also shot my Python, a .22 Hornet CZ, and a Mossberg MPV .223.
I determined that the Sig 232 is zeroed at 10 yards. The Python was shooting 3 inches to the left(not anymore). I'm using a different Hi Power
for the conversion kit because I wasn't happy with the mechanics of the Mark III I used last time. Now I've got the kit on a 1969 model with a
round hammer and the magazine safety removed. I had the range to myself for 3 hours until a friend and his kids came up for the last hour.
Maybe the next trip I'll be able to shoot the Diamondback that I've taken up twice and not shot.

A friend recently gifted me this Westernfield "Gill Gun". The target was 15 shots freehanded at 60'. Have since drifted the sight a bit. Nice part is that I am able to do this in my backyard.
