I left my last targets at the range....but I will get another Cro-Magnon man digital camera and post my next visit, it maybe a few weeks before that happens though.....range time has always been fairly scarce in my busy life the last few years.....and ammo thing don't help.

pages 5,6, & 13 have my previous targets. RiverRat's on 16 i think. i still have the irons challenge to beat, so i'll be back.

do you have a mini, winds? they are good little rifles......
I do not own a mini. The only rifle I own is my gorgeous Henry Lever. I love that thing!!

I'll have to go back and look at Riverrat's target.

I don't have a smart phone and the camera on my 'dumb phone' is terrible. I love my little point and shoot Canon digital camera. And I don't go anywhere unfamiliar without my stand alone GPS. Truly, the GPS gave me a lot of freedom. I used to be afraid to go places I wasn't familiar with. Not anymore. When I went to visit Stalkingbear in KY from here in Illinois, I just plugged his address in and off I went. Same with meeting JonM at the range he goes to.

you're a techno-phobe after my own heart winds....

i'm right with you. love my stand alone GPS and outdated digital camera (till it died). I bought a $15 dollar track phone...lmao! my friends think I am semi- crazy.

my awesome marlin 30-30 is the only rifle i own that i like more than my mini...love me some lever gun!

well..if you ever have the $ to burn grab a wood stocked mini and see how it feels in your hands, they are awesome rifles. keep checking in, hopefully we'll see targets soon!

I have an old Magellan 510 stand alone GPS that I bought in the 1990's. I've considered buying a digital camera but I just haven't pulled the trigger so to speak.

It's a tough week at work, I need some trigger time. I will try the challenge with my 6.8 mini. And blast a few shots with my new 1911!
