Good Day At The 'Range'

Post by Mistered » Sun Nov 10, 2019 5:30 pm

Had a pretty good couple hours shooting today.
I think I have approached accuracy excellence with my Henry as per the pic.
After some messing around with my new rest and getting 'dialed in' I patched my target and shot this, 50 yard five shot group. This is about the best group I have ever shot with my Henry. My new home made rest really helps and I am going to improve it a bit down the road with a better and more secure 'cradle' for the forestock.

MANY pinecones were injured or killed as well, mostly due to my CZ 9mm and .45 1911 but a few to my Henry as well. Heck I couldn't miss and had 'em flying in all directions!

I'm awaiting for the deer & elk hunters to dissipate before joining you at your "range." Great shooting.

Didn't see any today and it was quiet and relaxing at the 'Deerleg Tree'!
