What do you think? I have been designing jewelry lately and was thinking there has to be something I can do with used and new bullet components. Here is my first attempt.

I have been home from LA for almost a week and still have not heard if I made the show! Another Seattle friend who I compete with in high power rifle also made the final rounds. We have been texting each other daily. “Have you heard?” He is definitely going to make it. He is… Read more »

I flew home Friday and Charles picked me up and we drove directly to Richland in eastern Wa for a match he wanted to shoot.

Yea! I must pat myself on the back. I cleaned the first string at 800. So out of 150 points I got 150 points with 8X. At 900 yards I cleaned it again but with 6X. At 1000 yards, well, oops. I did drop 8 points. BUT! That makes it a total for the day… Read more »

Today was my first day at the Ben Avery Range here in Phoenix. I swore we must have taken a wrong turn somewhere and ended up at Rattlesnake Ridge by accident. The winds were howling! No one told me it was like this!! I don’t have my elevation sites yet for 8, 9 and 1000… Read more »
