    The 17 and 22 Fireball rifles were test fired off a bench rest about three weeks ago. Still have to reload some more ammo for them. The 204 Ruger rifle and ammo are ready to go. A land owner about seven miles from where I live asked me to come over and shoot some of them darn prairie dogs. First nice day Ill do it .

    Made three trips last year, two to Wyoming and one to Colorado. Colorado was so windy and the hawks made it impossible to shoot much. So I am still loaded up from last hunt. Could load a few more, but don't need too, I've never ran out yet.
