Hey ōystein, that's nasty looking stuff for mid-October!
We usually get some snow in November and then it's gone til January.

Lee, my pellet trap is a cardboard box filled with folded feed bags. When the front gets shot up I glue a new piece of cardboard on it.
After several hundred shots I take out the feed bags and shake the spent pellets out, then re-pack it.
Doesn't cost me a dime and it's effective.

Sean, very good shooting with the irons and CCI Blazer on the C1. I'm so glad I stumbled upon this group and the shooting styles. Out of the rifles I have I get the most satisfaction out of open sights.

Thank you for the backstop suggestion. I scrutinize with extreme prejudice some or most what I find on u tube.

Lee

Thanks guys..

I hear you about the open sights, Lee. While I enjoy shooting with the scoped and aperture sighted rifles, the open irons kinda take me back to a different time.

Reminds me of the Merle Haggard song, "Sing Me Back Home"..

Anyway, after I finished up with the fun match targets I took a walk over to our "pistol" range with the Henry. It's also 25 yds, but we can shoot steel targets there. The ones we have aren't much of a challenge when it comes to deliberate fire kind of shooting, but it's still fun hearing the clang and watching dust fly when you get a solid hit.

The Henry lever .22's are a hidden gem in the world of .22 rifles IMO.
I've had a lot of fun with mine in the time I've had it, I'll probably either keep it or upgrade to the Frontier version. The Golden Boy is a bit splashy for my tastes.

Thanks John,

The Tikka has been a fun project. It's a really accurate rifle, but so is my CZ 452.
I didn't see much point in having 2 very similar scoped sporters in my collection, so it got switched to aperture sights.
I can't shoot well enough with apertures to reach it's accuracy limits, so any misses are all mine.
I wish Tikka would build a walnut "Varmint" version of the T1x, I think it would be a good choice.

Thatís exactly how I ended up with my CZ over the Tika,, Iím old school I guess. I still like a good wood stock,, the Tika plastic ď polymer ď look cheep to my taste.
Yours is beautiful,,

Great shooting Stan.

Your airgun shooting takes me back to the days of learning marksmanship as a kid with the first one my Dad got for me. I can't even remember the last time I shot one, but it sure was just as much fun as rimfire or centerfire.
