Re: 2011 Long Range Shoots, Townsend Montana

Been snowing all day here too which kept me from the range do do some more load work. Got about 4".

I'm still planning to go unless the weather is real bad. The forecast isn't too bad... AM snow showers, high of 52.

Jeff, do you know Indian Creek's elevation? I need to print up some drop charts.

    No snow on the ground here yet. I will be there reguardless. I know it is a crap shoot on weather this time of year but it will have to be pretty bad to stop the fun. My son and I built a couple more targets and stands today. So we will have a few between the 500 and the 1000 at random distances.

    Now for the real problem. We got done with the targets and decided to go bust a few rocks. Went over to the safe and punched in the code and it acted like it was the wrong code. Tried 3 new batteries to no avail. We have moved, still have stuff in storage and after a 2 hour dig we still can't find the emergency key. Heck it might be in the freakin safe for all I know. If so that was one of my smarter moves. Anyhow, it will not open and all my rifles and grear are inside including my sons too. So if the safe company can't help when I call in the morning I am screwed. I may have to beg a few shots from some of you guys..

    See ya all Saturday.

    Broz, have you asked your wiffe regarding the key

    Sounds like something I'd do.

    bng said the berm is at 4490'. Hmmmm, I'm right at 4488'. Things are lookin' good for 2012.

    Hope to organize a couple of those kinds of shoots in Idaho. Rexburg looks like the closest range to Montana.
