Another crappy day in Arizona

Post by runnin n gunnin » Sun Dec 01, 2019 7:32 pm

Well, here we are with another crappy day in Arizona. 31 at sunrise, sunny and 60 most of the day.

Thought I would use the time and prep for the family onslaught over Christmas, daily range days in the desert.

Started up with 38s. My son and his wife both just bought Vaqueros and she a birdshead Ruger. Son also wanted some 38 to run through his Henry.

346 rounds (don't know where I lost four pieces of brass :o ) All are 4.6 grains of Bullseye pushing 158 grain Hornady XTP JHP. (except for 22 Sierra flat nose 148 grain in the back). Prepped and primed another 200 rounds of 45 Colt to drop powder in tomorrow.

Now its time for a Jameson and enjoy the sunset!

Considering we were at -15F the other day, 60 sound pretty good.

All kidding aside, I feel for all of you in the ice and cold. Did some work in Anchorage a few years back at 21 below zero, still trying to warm up!
I have a lot of respect for those who not only can function, but have the tenacity to go out and shoot. RESPECT !

It just seems wrong to see snow drifting across my sunset, think Ill shoot some Christmas lights !

Beautiful sunset RnG, and yes it does look odd with the snowflakes drifting across the pic. ;)

Have in-laws that live in Prescott AZ. They sent us pictures of recent snow with cactus in the scene.

Prescott is beautiful country. Arizona is a really misunderstood state, not all desert and cactus. We have open desert to Alpine meadows. Very diverse geography, just like Oregon.
The Prescott V.A. is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful architectural facilities around, originally named Fort Whipple, it has served as a tactical base for the United States Cavalry during the Indian Wars of 1864 to 1882 transitioning to the headquarters of the Arizona Volunteers (Rough Riders) during the Spanish American War.
I hope you get along with your in-laws and make a road trip !
