I tried today, I really did.  Forgot to grab a backer from home, but I found a piece of cardboard in the trash which I thought would do.  I found out (sadly) that not all cardboard is the same.  While the holes in the cardboard were nice and round, those in the target (25 yard) were badly ripped out.  Also, while halfway through my shooting, the guy who was mowing stopped for a gab session.  After he left I had lost track of how many shots I had taken and when I retrieved the target it had 6 holes, all ripped out.  So, it looks like I'll be back out next week for another try!

Well, I got one target done today. Shooting did not start out well so i never got to the rendezvous target.  Hopefully I'll get to it tomorrow.  When I started shooting the target today, my shots were going all over the place.  Why?  I know I hadn't shot in a while; I had been sick for the past 4 weeks and really didn't have my strength back, but that shouldn't have affected things that bad.  Anyway, I happened to notice that the front sight was sliding back and forth without much effort.  I guess that is really not a good thing. Ha!  Ok, now it's time to sight in the rifle again and stake that front blade down.  Finally got it all done and then tried a target again. Not great, but much better.  I will get that one sent in and hopefully tomorrow I won't be so tired and ready to shoot the rendezvous target.

Have fun and shoot straight.........................Oh and check to make sure your sights are fixed in position.   :Doh!
