Finally Got To The Range . . .

¶ . . . for some trigger time with my new '73, but I only got off two photos before my lame-ass can't-hold-hold-a-charge battery crapped out!! I got this one off as I set up to chrono and sight in my Para for this week's SWPL Match (Which I'll miss again!! This pesky job!!):

. . . and one of the '73 before it got off its first shot:

. . . Range Report forthcoming when I get another chance to write more, hopefully inviting some more of your comments/advice; I already have some observations to inquire about. I'll say this, it sure is nice and seems to shoot pretty straight right out of the box, but I need to take the Marine out with me to fire it, as he and the gun can shoot better than I can!! I also need him to shoot the camera for some better fotos! Sorry to keep you guys waiting. . .
. . . A new 10/22 is on its way! The Ten-Day is just about up on that one!!

¶ . . . I'm grateful for the "pesky job"; it makes trigger time possible!!

"Stick To Cowboy Loads . . . "

¶ . . . Seems to be the order for reloading ammo for my Uberti '73.  Cowboy Blob  and  Marc at Ninth Stage  were on the spot with rapid replies to my requests for some advice, as I was hoping to be able to push the loads to reach out to the far silhouettes. No hot-shots for me!! Cowboy Loads it will be!!
. . . Here's a good quote from C.B. on the Uberti guns: "I've heard that some Italians who make them are really surprised that Americans shoot the guns!!"

It's Mine . . . !!

¶ . . . a brand new '73!! Unfortunately, I'm so tied up at work, I can't cut loose for some trigger time!! Today would have been a good day, too, as there is hardly a soul up at the range on Mondays. When I get a chance, I'll post a photo or two of some corny pose . . . !

. . . The wife had to sleep elsewhere last night!!

Not Very Impressive . . .

¶ . . . I must not be hanging out with enough of the right kind of people!!

A Witch Hunt . . . ?

¶ . . . Or so perceived. I'll work straight through my off days, a first for me here, so I don't know when I'll get the first trigger time with my new rifle. I'll be taking delivery of it up tomorrow; looks like I'll just get to fondle it for a while!! Oh well, the money's good . . .

. . . Plus-point: Vacation time coming up next week!!
