I knew we hadn't seen the last of it...



  • Walked out of the office last night and winter let everyone know he's still around...

    I'm laughing here.:stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:



  • Laugh it up.

    This is probably what's outside your window right now eh?

  • @orkan That is the roadside distractions I encounter when driving to the range.

  • To get to our range you drive past a long beach park and turn toward the mountain. The range is by Papalaua gulch

  • Boy, some nice views behind you when shooting I bet!

    Doesn't look like they let you shoot very far though.

    It is beautiful, both the landscape and some of the temporary scenery.:laughing:

    The range is only 200 yards, very frustrating. I use the NRA 50 and 100 yard small bore targets at 100 and 200 for practice.
    On the left side of the range is the National Guard range that is 600 yards; of course the powers that be shut it down and it is being overgrown with mesquite (Keawe) trees.

    It is all we have now. We can't even set up informal ranges out in the boonies.



  • At 200yds, it could still be fun. Set up a bunch of pieces of white paper on target backers. Smear it with honey. Wait for flies... and one-shot one-kill your way into the most deadly fly sniper of all time. :+1:

    LOL , years ago our house out in the boonies had a 2nd floor balcony my sons and I would shoot .22s off. about 30 yards across from the balcony was a short white picket fence that we would put peanut butter on the top of the bottom horizontal board. At night we had spotlights shining from the balcony, illuminating the fence and we would pick off the rats as they stretched upward to eat the Peanut butter bait. Good fun was had by all except for the rats of course.:smiley:

    Love it!

    A few years ago, I fired 82 shots, and hit 80 mosquito's at 25yds with my old original 40XB 22lr. We put up a grid square system to make our target call-outs easier. Great fun. :)



  • @orkan I saw that, laughed my ass off and thought you guys were having too much fun.:thumbsup:

    I should know better, but the nice weather convinced me to swap out the animals heated water bottles/dishes/buckets for their summer ones, boy that wasn't fun swapping them around in the cold yesterday. :unamused: Whoopsies. I'm going to wait until April or May to swap them again.

    Rookie animal caretaker learned a good lesson lol

    LOVE IT! Rats are fun! So are mice, mice are trickier because they can hide down in the grass, but if you watch carefully you can see them jumping around as they move across the yard or field and you can eventually get them :smiling_imp:

    We had a bit of a rat problem two summers, or so, ago... we put out bird seed to bring in the feathered friends, well the rats were perfectly comfortable coming out in broad daylight to eat the seed. I saw this go on for a few days, then I decided to crack open my kitchen window, pop my handy .22lr out and started doing headshots on the nasties. It was a blast! I was finally banned from shooting them because I wasn't leaving any for Orkan :speak_no_evil:

    Seriously... lol I'd be at work all day selling rifles and helping folks out like a good lad, and she's at home with rifle poked out the kitchen window murdering every rat that dares show his face. hahaha.



  • @orkan That got me belly laughing and a stitch in the side.:flushed:



  • I was good though, I shared pictures of my awesome slaughtering :laughing:
