Air Rifle Log Update

I went to air rifle practice today, but there were quite a few shooters.  I ended up leaving without shooting to make room for all of the new folks.

Instead, I spent a little time updating my air rifle logbook on this website.  I added probably 50 or so scores from the 2011-2014 time frame.  I still have plenty of 2014 and 2015 scores to go.

Thank you for reading my uninteresting post.

Skipped Air Rifle Practice

I did not make it to the air rifle practice this evening.  I don’t know, I got caught up in a project and ended up missing out.

I did finally clean up one of my ARs and I also did some straightening up of my reloading shack, though I have a long ways to go.

Thank you for reading my boring post.

No Air Rifle Practice

There was no air rifle practice this week.  I found a record of old air rifle practice scores, and will add some of those over the next few weeks.

My father sent me a front sight tool for my AR.  Next time I go to the range, I will adjust the front sight to put it on paper.

Overall, I was not very active with shooting or reloading this week.   There will be air rifle practice next week, and perhaps I will do a little reloading this weekend.

Air Rifle Practice and CMP: 3/6/17

This weekend, I shot in the Civilian Marksmanship Program school.  I brought my new AR, but forgot my sling.

On the first stage, the wind was blowing hard.  My spotting scope was blowing in the wind so hard that I couldn’t see my target through the scope.  I decided to shoot my first ten and look for the group at the end.  After firing my first ten rounds, I made my rifle safe and used both hands to steady the scope.  No hits at all.

Eventually, I found that I could aim at the bottom of the berm and that would put me on target.  I did not have the tool to adjust the elevation on the front sight, so I aimed low from then on.  Otherwise, my groups weren’t bad considering the wind and no sling.

In the end, I scored a 126/500.

This evening, I also shot at air rifle practice.  Both the air rifle practice and CMP scores are updated.

Thank you for reading my post.

Air Rifle Practice: 2/27/17

Today was a good night at air rifle practice, though it took me a while to get into the groove. I took quite a few sighter shots, and my first lap through the targets was not specatuclar, either.

However, I finished the night with a 233/300, 4X and an 81/100 from the sitting position with a Daisy CO2 gun.

Thank you for reading my post.

Air Rifle Practice and Backpack Clean-Up

I cleaned up my backpack, which has sat in one corner of the room for a long time. It had stuff spilled on it, and it was quite a mess.  I emptied it and ran it through the shower to clean it up.

I went to air rifle practice this evening as well.  I shot in the sitting position with a Daisy CO2 gun, and did well on the second string.  I shot the best I’ve shot in a long while.

Thank you for reading my post.

Air Rifle Practice: 2/13/17

I was able to attend Air Rifle Practice this evening.  I was not feeling well today, given my messed up eating schedule.  The Anschutz precision air rifle I was using was pearls before swine.  I shot in the sitting position both times, getting a 145/200 1X, and then a 136/200 2X, as I began to shake a bit.

However, every night at air rifle is a good night, even if I wasn’t impressed with my performance on the range.

Thank you for reading my post.
