    Howdy folks , Ray here ... I've been working on a couple of Long Range projects for awhile now .. to shoot past 1000 yds with a 22 caliber Contender ." The Block " is the result of the first attempt .. 16 pounds , 3 section aluminum , bolted together with a shotgun recoil reducer glued in place .The Block and Rest was built by C & J Machine , Palmer Ill . Burris 8x32 Black Diamond with 25 moa in the base . The 5.6x50R Imp by On Target Technologies will push a 80 gr Amax....enjoy

    Would it help my wife's morning pre-coffee disposition if I put a bunch of those smilies somewhere in the kitchen near the coffee maker? :)

    H,
    Go to have fun.
    Go to learn.
    Go to meet people.
    Go to better yourself.
    Don't worry about what others have done or are capable of doing.
    If you focus on what others can do you will not do your best.



    The smiley faces fit Ray well. If he is not smiling, he is chuckling or laughing--A real joy to be with.
    As I have said before, one of the goodwill ambassadors of LR shooting with specialty handguns.

    Thanks Ernie ...

    Hunlee ,
    Don't be too impressed , I haven't even figured out if this thing will really shoot yet ...LOL . Its a Experiment .. Bring your guns , and shoot ... enjoy the trip , experience and People ...It will be a Great Time . All the folks that attended last year were very freindly and we all had a great time , I'm sure this year will be the same , with more people attending . All the different guns and chamberings are a plus in itself , they'll be lots to look at and shoot . Ernies guns alone could keep a guy busy for a week ...lol
