Since i have to be off for two days cause my gout :'(. And since i wasn't doing a lot of walking i went to the range. Shot both my 17s. was Resighting my marlin and a final check on my savage. They are both on target the marlin is getting just good enough groups with the 20s and my savage still loves them. Now im ready for saturday.

 O0 Right on, fuzzy! Now you have to choose which rifle to use! I would take the Savage. Your foot is better?

  ;D  O0 Smart kid! Good luck, fuzzy!

Since it's 2:30 in the morning here, I am still deciding whether to hunt today or tomorrow.

,17 rifles rule!

Got 2. Both with headshots too nasty to put up here. Only 3 shots, first shot hit a branch other than that hit every shot i fired. This thing murders their heads. And i really need to figure a way to get my old man to hit his shots. He fired 2 missed both.

  O0  :shock: Yeah on .17 heads, fuzzy! It got hot early yesterday but I got two fox squirrels and two grays. We call fox squirrels reds here.

I had only three when the squirrels denned up because of the warm weather. I spotted the fourth one not far from the truck and whacked it.

I can understand your dad getting a bit rusty. It gets tougher as you get older. Maybe his rifle needs to have a scope check.
