For the past several days the weather has warmed up a bit and there are holes in the snow in the yard and fields. I really want to get out and do some shooting with my flintlock to try some different bullets. Maybe I can talk Eric into getting out tomorrow afternoon. I just need to play a little.

I'm wanting to get up to the range and fling some heavy 45 70 loads as well. I also am going to do up a new batch of 130 grainers for the 270 Weatherby at 3500 fps, and get them tuned in. Winter's over, and the gophers are out now. Moving targets are fun. Posted Image

I think it's a good idea to take all of your firearms out once in a while and shoot them to make sure sights are on target and everything functions well. Besides.......it's fun!Posted Image

I agree that an arsonal should be exercised periodically but there are a few that I will absolutely not shoot because of their value but I like to get the hunting guns out and let them speak for themselves. Right now I can see that there is a 270, a 243, a 222 rem, a 219 Donaldson Wasp, a 25 souper, along with a couple of handguns and several frontloaders that really need some exercise. There is probably a couple more that I didn't mention but that is part of the fun of owning a stable of wildcats.

That sounds tasty Eric. Did you save me some? Posted Image

Yep Paul, I've got a couple I won't shoot just because of value. Both dollar wise and sentiment wise. Posted Image

Same thing here. All that I do not shoot are because of value and several are for both value and sentimental value.

I saw a mosquito yesterday while shooting my bow, so it could have been a very real itch.

Hey straight that is definately not the situation here in central PA. As of today I can say most all our snow is finally gone but as late as yesterday I still had some in my back yard. No this itch is a real hankering to expend a few rounds downrange. I waited too long this week as it is now raining and the forcast is for rain now through next monday.

While you fellers are sitting there scratching them itches.. I have been shooting. The weather was over cast most days, even rained. But today was excellent. I found some old grapefruits that had went bad in the refrigerator and took them out and blew them up. Now that is the way to scratch an itch. I am sure all of you will be out at the range soon.

The rain we have been getting has been very constant for the past 3 or 4 days it has rained 24/7 till just this morning. I had an eye dr appointment this morning and a contractor at the house redoing a bathroom.
