Republic Day morning shoot

Shooting was ok yesterday. We managed to make a fairly mature bamboo collapse under it’s own weight after the onslaught of about 40 extra heavy 10.5 grain Baracuda pellets. It gave it’s life so that airgunners can have fun, and display creativity in target selection and acquisition.

Number one son asked to shoot a rifle. This was surprising, as he would only shoot my rifle if I insisted. Dave has a rifle with a black synthetic stock a.k.a. an Evil Black Rifle (EBR). Maybe in the eyes of a 12 year old boy, my wooden-stocked rifle is ‘old school’. Properly maintained, my rifle would still be taking down small game 90-100 years from now though. It’s a German engineered classic. Perhaps when he’s older and wiser, he’ll appreciate it. Especially when he realizes it was willed to his brother.
