Actually, I wanted to put it in the crappiest lite possible since the first group got botched by two fools beside me yelling over their earplugs and shooting off a rest with the barrel resting on it. I heard one of said fools yell and twitched as I pulled the little lever on the bottom; pulled the pill 4" out. The next bullet fell into the group netting a 1/2" 100 yard group for the three that I wasn't spooked for. Perils of a public range I guess; at least the dude wasn't shooting my targets like a couple of fools two weeks ago.
Lefty, I can identify with the shenanigans that go on at a " public" range. Weekend warriors has a new meaning at my club sometimes. Sometimes I get the $&@? Yahoos that bring out the AR's and make more noise than an army, and still can't hit ****! And yeah, they shoot my targets too! And then, some other yahoo will pull up behind me, just as I'm about to squeeze the trigger, and when I fire, he says, I didn't have my muffs on yet!!!! ( like I've got EYES in the back of my head)
And it even gets better. When I take my chronograph to the range, guys ask me, can I fire I few through it to see how fast my load is.!!!!!!
I actually was at the range once with the chrono, and one of this " yahoos" with the AR's, and their brass was landing on my bench, and once, it even went though the sky screens, and I registered it on the read out. So, I picked up all my marbles and went home for the day. Oh, I could go on, but you get the picture, and know the drill.
P/S. I really did E- mail Shooting Times about locating Layne Simpson and inviting him to visit this forum.
Haven't gotten a reply yet. Maybe we' ll have to get Len on that one!!!! Maybe he has more pull than us 7 STW fans!!!!
