At the range this morning.......

#1 Post by jnyork » Fri Nov 01, 2019 5:41 pm

A brisk 46 degrees here in snowbird land this morning at 0800 as 15 geezers and geezerettes gathered to shoot lever action silhouette. This was the first shoot of the season and not all the fellow snowbirds are down here yet, we expect a much larger turnout next week.

I managed a 27X40 with my Rossi version of a Winchester 92 in .357. Did great until the rams, got deflated quite a bit by those pesky critters.

Yuma gunshow tomorow, I have a Remington model 722 in .244 Remington I am going to try to pedal or trade, I inherited it and have no interest whatsoever in messing with it, so out it goes.Image

It looks like a good place to shoot - were the sillywet shooting distances "NRA/standard" ?

Looks like fun. Sure is easy to tell who the snow birds are though.... Hopefully our paths will cross this winter. Todd/3leg

Sure do, Rusty. Marble's tang sight with Merit adjustable aperture. Very rare to see anyone shooting lever action silhouette with open sights, if they do, they dont win any matches. :D
