A Couple of Quickies

I'm so sorry for being behind.  I've still got lots of posts in my little brain, but need to get them from my brain to my computer.  In the meantime, I've been shooting as much as possible even though I didn't make the cut for Top Shot this time.  I still plan on working out and shooting everything I can get my hands on to apply for the next season.

Anyway, I've got just a couple of quick videos to share from last time we went out.  Deejo (my brother) finally made the move from Arizona to Colorado (yay, Deejo!) and I'll get to shoot with him more often now.  But first we have to get him back into shooting shape.  Mez's .45-70 kinda kicked his butt.  Well, his shoulder.  Take a look...



I fared much better in the shoulder department when I shot the rifle, but could not stay on the Bosu.  I guess that means that I've got a lot more core abdominal work to do in order to stay up during the recoil.  I also sort of made a mistake.  We had a dueling tree out with us.  It was out thirty-thirtyfive yards, a reach for the handguns, but just right for the rifle.  Um.  Yeah.  The dueling tree lost.  Big time.



In the video, when we're looking at the plates, you can hear me say, "I didn't do that".  On playback, you can see that I very clearly did do that. 

Anyone know where I can buy new plates for the dueling tree?

We did something similar to ours this spring - Hubby ended up just making new ones and welding them on...

If you were a little closer I would volunteer to do that for you, I get the honor of fixing the patrols targets quite often....LOL
