I spent the morning assembling my LabRadar ballistic radar thingie and doing all the initial data input…it was actually pretty easy. Tomorrow I'm going to run a bunch of .308 tests out of the Scout so can tinker together a decent DOPE chart for the Hornady 150 GMXs out of the 16-inch barrel.
You know, I remember a time not so long ago when I would have said, hey, sight it in at 200 yards and call it good. All these long-range classes are, I think, having a bad effect on me.
I'm also working on building shooting platform "A" here at the Bunker, with "B" and "C" on schedule this summer. "D" is still an argument frappant between my Sweetie and I…really, who wouldn't want a short shooting tower on their property? Okay, maybe 10 feet high…sort of like a heavily armed tree house…wait…wait…don't answer that.
Amazingly enough, I signed up for a USPSA membership today…I think it's my third. The first number, if I recall, was like 770-something; the second was in the 13000s…of course, I could be just making this up. Anyway, my Sweetie wants to shoot USPSA since this summer's 3-Gun season has fallen prey to mud, mud, mud and rain, so I thought I'd suck it up and reenlist. I hope to be shooting the Sig P320 pretty soon, but in the meanwhile it's the G34.
Read this article in WIRED on the Defense Distributed "Ghost Gunner" CNC mill. I've reached out to Cody Wilson at DD about demo'ing a Ghost Gunner on SHOOTING GALLERY. Cody thinks it's do-able, and if we can work it out you'll see me milling my own AR receiver on television. I'll take it slow, step by step, so you'll know how to make your own. At least, that's the plan.
