Sept 2019

Son was up here from Fl. last week. Something about a little rain (not to dismiss the storms many people have had to endure the last week). We have to dig at each other. Have a great relationship with him. He comes up when the storms of life and weather happen.

Anyway he said, Pops you have to clean this barn out before I get it in your will. So we started to go though some boxes and I found some A-23 targets.

Today I went to the range and shot one. Been a while, but I did OK. Need to shoot more.

Don't remember the last time I shot this gun. Will shoot again soon. Had a blast.

Love to but he is a AR type of guy. At least he shoots. When he was a boy I tried to force it on him. My sport was not his sport. I like single shots, he likes AR's. I did have a SKS back then and I believe that is why he still shoots. Oh he also likes the 7 mm Rem mag. he has 12 of them in various makes.

Great day at range, warm and humid but not uncomfortable. Had range to myself, early morning. Best score for me, working my way to that elusive 200.

Hey Tom, those Freeland sights you use, may have been made right here. When I was a kid, late 50s early 60s, I would go to his store in Rock Island. When I was stationed in Panama, ( early 80s )I was helping clean out an old storage bunker and found a very old Freeland scope stand. It is back in the states and in use in my basement, ( air gun range ). Really is a small world.

Love them sights

I have more then one set of them.. I bought a BSA MKIII International with Freeland sights probably 15 years ago. I didn't know anything about the rifles or the sights but can't get enough of either. UNCLE AL DONE GOOD! I wish I had the opportunity to visit his shop. Scope stand too.

Keep on shoot'n

Hank saw one of my other posts and reminded me about these matches. I haven't posted here in a very long time, sold most of my vintage rifles to fund custom Centerfire builds. Just ordered a CZ-452 Grand Finale, and took the scope off the 452 Ultra-Lux to get it ready to mount on the Grand Finale when it arrives, so I dug my Iron Sights out and put them back on it. Went to the range to zero them, and decided to shoot and post a target. It's been several years since I shot Iron sights, but given I didn't put out any flags, I did better than I expected. One shot was questionable, it touched the ten ring, but didn't break it, rules posted at the start of the thread, said if it touches the ring then it's in, so I called it in, you guys can correct me if I'm wrong.
