Thanks! I like shooting handguns. Mostly plinking. I have some old savage 99's I really enjoy too. Tried Highpower silhouette, not too good at that.

That takes a lot of concentration beyond the normal plinking and man - perfect body posture, breath control and totally emptying your mind of anything not related to holding that gun still and on target. Me - can’t do it. Got too many things firing away plus I like to shoot fast lol

Welcome! If you made it to "old" that means you survived cars coming off the hoist and shorted wires. You sound like a success to me! :thumbsup2:

Welcome. I'm in Lacey and a shade tree mechanic with an interest in hot rods, motorcycles. Right now my two projects are a 1986 Bronco and setting up a Chevy express van as a boondocker
