Trap....they should call it miss

We shot three rounds this morning, and yours truly shoulda stayed in bed.
23,23, and 22 from the twenty yard line.
Cold, windy, yeah I know...excuses, excuses.
Shootin' buddy faired about as well.
We'll get 'em net time.

A little range time

Set up a some 1" and 6" dots on targets at 50 and 100yds.
Savage 10 has held its zero (Nikon) for a long time rattling around and did very well on the 1" dots at 100.
The new AR at 100 with a Leupold put them all  in a 3" group. I'm ok with that.
The S&W M&P15, with a cheap reddot, was 4" at 50. I'll take it.

Had my CZ75 at the smiths to install a decocker kit. He informed me that a pin was missing from the kit and called CZ in KC to order a new kit. Chick on the phone was clueless and said a tech would call back. Never did..after three days.
He called again and got a tech and was told it would go out that day....two weeks ago...nothing.
CZ does not have the best service I've ever tried...just sayin'....sigh.

Y'all take a kid shootin'.

Why they do it...heh

Suicide Incentives

Everyone seems to be wondering why Muslim terrorists are so quick to commit suicide.
Let's see now... No Jesus, No Christmas, No television, No cheerleaders, No Nude Women, No car races, No football, No soccer, No pork BBQ, No hot dogs, No burgers, No chocolate chip cookies, No lobster, No nachos, No Beer nuts, No Beer !!!!!!!! Rags for clothes and towels for hats. Constant wailing from the guy next-door because he's sick and there are no doctors. Constant wailing from the guy in the tower. On your knees facing east most of the day. More than one wife. You can't shave. Your wives can't shave. You can't shower to wash off the smell of donkey cooked over burning camel dung. Your bride is picked by someone else. She smells just like your donkey, and is uglier than your goat. Then they tell you that when you die it all gets better!
I mean, really, is there a mystery here?

Back home

Vegas was not at all like I remembered a few years ago.
Traffic on the I-15 was as bad as LA and the road construction was everywhere.
Speaking of construction, everywhere you looked there were cranes in the air. They are building at a frantic pace. Adding to hotels, building factories, tilting up commercial buildings, every thing is booming.
And then there is this;
famous hooch.

Left Vegas on the scenic route..heh.
Once you come down off of the back side of the Sierras there is nada but brown grass and black beefs grazing brown grass, forever.
For a thousand miles.
If it wasn't for Waylon and Willie I would have went catatonic. But I do know all of the words to at least six I got that going for me.
Took a side trip through Zion Park;

Stopped in Provo, Utah for the night did a drive around the next morning. College town, very college town. Nope.

Left there for Pocatello Idaho.
Nice place, I like it.
Way too much traffic in town, but it was a Saturday and doesn't everyone go to town on Saturday?
I found a nice gun shop (Sam's) in town and he pointed out a private range up the road, so I joined.
Thirty bucks and you get a key to the gate.
Found out the scope rings on the AR I took with me are too low. I know, "Didn't you check it after you mounted the glass, dumb ass?" Huh.
Still got a few rounds down range after some contortionist work.
Stayed in Pocatello checking prices of houses but most of the ads are for urban and I want to be in the sticks.
Left there for Reno. No more brown grass.
Spent the night in Reno and headed back up into the Sierras by way of the Carson Pass. No more brown grass.
I took a side trip to visit a couple of projects I was an inspector on for Caltrans;
Dorms/office at Peddler Hill.

Caples Lake garages.

While at Caples I went out the back road up into the woods to a spot we found years ago.
You can see a couple of caves into the rock face.
The bottom one was walled off into a rooms and a fire ring with a metal pot was at the mouth.
Story going around was it was a hideout, YMMV;

All of the roads, once you leave California, are smooth and very well maintained.
Nevada, Utah, and Idaho have great sections posted at 80MPH.
In Utah And Idaho the street signs are not illuminated. Dumb.
The drivers, once you leave Vegas or Reno, are sane and thoughtful, as opposed to the idiots here in Commiefornia...sigh.

Was a nice 2003 mile little walk about, I needed that.

Y'all be safe and take a kid shootin'.
