Roy, I was the guy with the green hooded Carhart. I shot your 375 AM and helped spot you shooting clay birds with your 270 AM. Glad to finally meet ya and thanks for letting me send one of those 350 SMK's down range

Re: 2013 Long Range Shoots In Townsend Montana

I am so glad you guys had a good time. When I finished painting the other day the range full of freshly painted targets looked like it was ready for some fun. I wish I could have joined you.


Cliff, you were right. Even after some professional training and several smooth rides the same horse got me again. Guess he is a little cold backed on these cool mornings. So I will be gimping around again for a few weeks.

Roy, My family and I enjoyed having you here. It was nice to sit down and get to know you a little. Come for another visit anytime.

Jeff

Roy,

Thanks for making the trip all the way from Idaho. It was nice of you to let some of the others shoot your AM. I love the sound of the impact!

Re: 2013 Long Range Shoots In Townsend Montana

The pleasure was all mine.

What a great bunch of folks.

Nice to be associated with you.

I learned a ton this trip. It was well worth the trip. Even though I had to have a trailer come from Idaho Falls and haul my rig back. Pretty much distroyed a really nice 4.7L engine..

The ride back was impressive. A duramax pulling about 8 ton of heavy duty trailer and Dodge Durangd @ 80 MPH was to say the least impressive. Round trip was $300 for fuel. Still impressive, even though.

The Broz Towsend B&B was exceptional, to say the least.

What happened? I know your vehicle smell started when we painted the little pig but I wouldn't think that hill would have caused the problem.

The smell, as it turned out, was when the belt tightener idler pulley froze up for a bit.

It froze up again, I guess, as I exited town. Things went downhill from there.

I'm figgerin' two warped heads + some stuff.

Jeff bailed me out in fine style. Turns out he's an old time top notch drag racer. He diagnosed at least one gone cylinder and a few push rod problems.

It's in the shop as I type. We'll see what the Dr. says.

Sorry to hear that Roy. I would have never guessed. Glad you made it home safe.
