Went to a birthday party yesterday for my future mother in law and started talking to one of my g/fs cousins about my coyote rifle, well the g/f ran back home to pick up my new toys to show him and he challenged me to a shooting contest against his remmington 700 30-06.
The wager was who could hit a quarter off a steel fence post at about 120-130 yards so we taped a couple quarters to the pole and the fun began,neither one of us hit the quarters first cple shots then I got the first knock down (couldnt see the quarters so was shooting at the tape) but wasnt a actual hit.
We reattached them with wire were we could see the quarters then I got the kill shot , all I could make out was a silver spot aqainst the rust of the pole, he is running a nice leupold on his rem and I have a nikon m-223 on the coyote when we walked down to check out the damage I was impressed with the nice tight patterns I was seeing from my rifle and watching the tree branches fall from his misses I told him next time I would do it the hard way next time 2 dimes and a nickle, then I let him and his 2 sons give the coyote a try after which all I heard from them was I want one.
Gotta love country folk bring out one gun and more will follow turned that party into a blast,none of us drink so gotta have fun some how
Sounds like everyone had a good time (hoping future mother-in-law was agreeable, or you might be in for a world of hurt later).
Yeah we did Steve they were all lined up behind us in lawn chairs watching,being a transplanted pavement pounder nice to hear gun shots with out the tire squeels of a drive by.lol
I can see where you guys get such a back log your rifles sell themselves to the point that your suppliers struggle to keep up, I know her uncle is totally in love with the 2 stage trigger, I could hear her cousins sons asking my g/f about where I got it how much did it cost ( I told their Dad they would they would probably love one for x-mass) and was pretty sure her Dad was thinking there goes the idea of a shot gun wedding.lol
