5 FOR 5 AT 50...STILL GOT IT!
« on: November 24, 2018, 02:58:16 AM »
It's been a long time cominig but I finally got a chance to break out my Grizzly by Beeman for a little fun.
I have not had the opportunity to do any target practice in so long I was a little concerned I might end up embarrasing myself.  Low and behold I'm not quite as bad as I feared.  Set up the target

took 50 paces back and took 5 shots and made 5 holes.  :woohoo: :woohoo: 5 for 5 :ahhh :ahhh

Admittedly it's not my best grouping but it's also been 20 plus years sense I got to spend any serious time practicing so I'm ok with it.

Sure was fun and maybe I can get some time to rehone the skills.  Who knows maybe I'll get back to splitting a pellet on a knife blade and getting a 10 for 5 again some day.

Then for good measure I broke out the Ol' '70s model Daisy trainer, a little oil on the pad and  :woohoo: :woohoo:  she still works.  Not near the ability of the Beeman, but it's still a Pride N Joy from my youth.  Thanks Dad.

does bring back memories, like tossing pecans for you to try to hit. You were only 6 years old but you were so proud when you hit one. A little later it was you upset when you missed one.

You've got SAKs older than that.  You should show more apreciation for a piece of true craftsmanship such as myself.  :whistle:

Great shootin' there Tex!   :tu:

I love shooting my pellet guns.  Unfortunately I don't get to do it as much as I used to!  If you really want to have fun, get some Firebird reactive targets.  They explode when you hit them, kind of like a bigger version of the caps we used to play with in the 70's. 

Much bigger!  :D
