Heading to the range

This morning I am heading out to the Pennsylvania Public Range at the State Game Lands 127 for a little bit of target practice.  I’ve been traveling in Europe so much this summer that I haven’t been able to get any target shooting in.

Today’s therapy has been prescribed and will be dispensed in .30-06, .308 Win, 5.56mm, and .22LR at the rifle stands, and in .45acp and 9mm at the pistol benches.

Taking the .30-06 out is special to me, it was my grandfather’s rifle which I inherited when my father passed away a couple years ago. I try to take it out two or three times a year. The rifle is a Springfield 1903 that has been set on a German sporter stock, and it drills nails at this 100 yard range.

It is a beautiful day for the range, its in the mid 50s now, and after breakfast it will be in the low 70s and very little wind…
