Yesterday, I saw an opportunity to catch a few Zzzzzzz's in the afternoon - didn't have
much sleep the night before. However, before I knew it the kids had me on a plinking
expedition to a friend's ranch about 30 minutes away - they said they'd feel better if
I came along and talked with him first - they think he's a grouch - LOL .... seems fine
to me! :D

Anyway, they took a fun selection of firearms along and we all had a great time. These
are pretty representative of the 100+ photos/tape I took.

These kids have all been pretty close buddies since middle school and pal around together
a lot. John (hatless) is my 22 (almost 23 year old youngest son) soon to be a ParaMedic
Firefighter, Tracy is the blond, a little younger and a very nice, soon to be Oceanographer
at Scripps Institute, James in the hat is at the police academy and 'Mars' (short for Marleen) i
s a computer engineer ... and a character ... she's her own gal, fer sure!

No target went along this time - this was for the fun of it - cans & water bottles ... and a
few melons.

By the way - if you click on the photos, they will enlarge to full size!

John:1911 Colt - either the 1917 or the 1942 - I
wasn't paying much attention (looking forward to
that nap, later :D )!



John: Firing the M4 at distance.



John: Taking aim with the 1884 Springfield trapdoor
.45-70 (Manuf. 1889) - handloads only.



Tracy: Questionable form but she hits in the high
nineties percent of the time (dead eye)! She's
shooting the .50-56 Spencer Repeater M1865 -
This one, a Repro., with handloads - a box of
50 (when you can find them) run a cool $156.00)
- we reload these a lot - MUCH cheaper when you
reload - especially these!



Tracy: Taking aim with our Quality Machine M1
Carbine circa 1942 - notice it was never sent
back to the armory for the bayo lug! Sweet! :cool:



Mars: Enjoying the M4



Mars: Telling John how MUCH she enjoyed the M4!
She took to that like a frog to water!



James: Giving the M4 a workout at distance.



James: Playing around at distance with the M1
Carbine - now he wants one! :D




Here's a video of Tracy firing the 4" S&W .500 Mag. for the first time: I was hoping to get a
'girlie girl squeal and shriek out of Tracy - didn't happen. I guess when you swim with the
hammerheads and tigers :eek: :shock: ... no little ole BANG is going to rile her!

Great pictures and video Zip! That gal was a trooper with the big S&W! Handled it like she had shot it many times before. Locked elbows and a nice rock on recoil! Taught well I assume.

Wellll, as MUCH as I would like to wrap my arms around her from the
back and help her improve her form ... I think John and James HAVE
beaten me to it!

'Member, I'm a grandpa - got an image to maintain! :twisted:

.... PLUS, Gale's too sharp - she'd see the video - THEN I'd have some
'splainin to do Lucy!!! LOL
:-B-:

Ninesey: You'd like Tracy - she's a sweetheart - BUT - takes no crap from anyone!

She's charmed/disarmed me ... a long time ago!
:cool:

Much better way to spent an afternoon than napping. You can nap anytime. But there is only a limited opportunity to go shooting with the "kids".

Mars must be a very small woman if that's what she looks like holding an M4. Still very pretty though. Tracy is too.

Great pics...those M4's look like they don't have magazines in them, then I remember you live in CA...10 rounds max. You gotta load them from the top?
My wife like shooting my M4 too...

I like the .500 video even though watching the locked elbows looks painful to me. :i: Love the end quote too. "It's not that bad". :mrgreen:
