Dialed In

I feel pretty confident shooting my rifle. I was able to get out to the range a few times and feel like if I get the opportunity, I can make the shot. This is from 100 yards using a 308, 150 grain core lock. I wanted to be about 1 1/2'' high, I think this is perfect.

Fall Shooting

I love when the weather is cool and I get a chance to go shooting.  It's always great to get out and fire some shots down range. The new setup is working great, thanks to everyone involved for assisting me with this project.

2016 Deer Season

So far,  I have only been out archery hunting one morning this season. How is your 2016 deer season going? Has anyone tagged out yet?

Target Shooting

I was able to get to the range in Washington County yesterday and do a little target shooting. I was at the Pennsylvania Game Commission shooting range near Claysville Pa. It's a 100 yard range and is wheelchair accessible.

The range has several shooting benches but is not covered by any pavilion or cover. The road into the shooting range is a little rough but my mini van was able to get there without any issues.

Hopefully I can get back out before the weather turns cold but if not, at least the 308 is sighted in. As you can see my 5th shot was a flyer.

I would also like to say I really enjoy using the Splatter Burst Peel and Stick 8 inch targets.  They are very easy to put up and you can clearly see your point of impact from 100 yards out through your scope. This eliminates the need for a spotting scope or walking back-and-forth to check the target.

Ham and Bacon Shoot September 25, 2016

Sunday was the last Ham and Bacon Shoot of 2016 for the Western Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors. It was held at the California Hill Gun Club. We all had a great day and I would like to thank all of the participants and volunteers who came out to make the shoot fantastic.

Although I did not win any of the shoots, I did manage to come in second place a few times. The shotgun, sip n puff trigger and mount, all worked out great to provide a steady shooting platform.

I am not an Olympic shooter. I limit my hunting shots to 200 yards. Most of my shots are well under 150 yards. Each of us have different abilities, and depending on conditions and our preparation, our range limits will change. What range do you feel comfortable taking a shot on game?
