Default Hankerin' fer some shootin' & wheelin'

Anybunny up for a half-day, wheelin'/shootin' combo Saturday? I'll be trying out a new front driveshaft. I, um, need to also unbend my crossmember a little bit with a scissor bender... and make it stronger... I don't wanna talk about that...

I also need to move the scope on the AR to what I am told is a more proper mil-style eye relief (ahem, <cough> per SeldomSeen <cough>).

So I am thinking a late morning or midday start. No particular area in mind, maybe around Idiot Springs/Bill Moore/Spring Creek or sumthin'.

Hey, if it works for you that's what counts right?

I've got 3 yrds of mulch coming and utilities being marked. Hopefully they will mark the lines b/4 I pile the mulch in the back yard. I really want to get out and do some flex testing, so if'n I get every thing done today I'll be up for it. I will let you know by 5pm K?

You inviting something that pushes some lead or just those toy .22's? Just talking smack....got way to much on the plate right now but I have been itchin' to warm some barrels myself. Rain check? Remember, if your shooting out to 200+ yards and you have to use a telescope to see if ya hit it you're really not getting serious!

Statistics show that 95% of all Jeeps ever built are still on the road. The other 5% made it home.

Yup, gonna shoot .223s. Hey Brian (Seldom), that works for me. Time might be a little 'loose', depends on getting my crossmember straightened, but I think I will just slot it, then bend it down, then weld a reinforcing plate.

BTW, let me take this opportunity to give props to Brian Ellinger. I gave him the info on my crossmember- I did not ask, he came out and offered to replace it with a newer design (mine is the first design). I'm just gonna straighten and brace it myself though, it would be a pain to swap it out even though that would be ultra cool.

Brian Ellinger really stands behind his products!

Uh-huh. Think of it as gettin' the feel for goat harvesting out to 500+. Which I also aim to do (with a little more than .223 of course; pincushioning ain't humane).

BTW, having reach makes reduction of Plague-carrying, disease-infested, cattle-hobbling overpopulated cute little <insert species here> for the local agricultural community that much nicer to accomplish!

I hear ya....think I might have to warm up the long guns too as I think we'll draw prairie goats this year also. Of couse I plan on packing the .460 and if the little scrapper is within' 300 is gonna get introduced to energy of unthinkable numbers!
The custom mini ranch hasn't been warmed in a while and I know I have at least a case of 58 grainers so I'm in....just not this sat.

I'll take a rain check. I have 5 yards of mulch arriving tommorow so I can't go this time.
