Dad's Day Present
« on: June 20, 2009, 10:41:53 PM »
I just opened my Dad's Day present from my 2 sons. They got me a Shooting Chrony !! Wow !!  :o

Guess I'll now have to hold off asking them to move out!  ;D

I live in a small town, so I can't just wake up, walk outside and start blasting away. So I set the chrony up on the front walkway and got the BB gun out first thing this AM. Everything was going well until I stepped backwards, barefoot, into a big pile of cat vomit. That about ended it.   :o

But I managed to recover, set it up in a safer place and start recording data on my BB gun. I think I about have it mastered now.

Well, I was aiming for coffee out the nose and onto the keyboard.  ;D
There's nothing quite like a well caffeined schnoz in the morning. 
Guess I'll just have to try harder next time.

rf  all you need is good dog.  Our black lab ate cat vomit after our 2 cats threw up and licked the floor clean.  :P

Howdy sir,

Obviously you did a great job helping to raise your two sons.  I waited far too long in both my shooting and reloading adventures to finally break down and get a chornograph.  But it has add a totally new dimension to my shooting and reloading enjoyment and pursuits. 

I predict you will have a real blast using yours sir (no pun intended).

Please update us as you have the chance to use it down the road.
