What a weekend!

Friday's range day followed an NRA sponsored breakfast.  was a lot of fun, even if a bit windy.  I traded shots with several other participants including a certain Top Shot season winner and genuinely nice guy.

A favorite was trading shots with fellow 10/.22 shooters. 10/.22 rifles are like snowflakes, no two are alike.  I tried a hammer forged bull-barreled ith iron sights(Alternate title, "there are many like it but this one is mine").  There were others as well, on average probably one on every other bench.
Note to self - next time collect all the 10/.22 owners & rifles for a class pic.

Joe "Boomershoot" Huffman sighted in his Rem 700 in .300 Win Mag and was quickly ringing the steel at all ranges with the help of his phone app.  He then  generously offered the trigger to anyone that wanted to try.  I say "generously" because each round is likely in the $2-3 range.  The rifle also sports a muzzle brake producing a surprisingly felt recoil, no worse than an M1-Garand in .30-06.  Note to self - get a muzzle brake!  (installed)

I made it down for Breakfast Saturday sponsored by GunBroker.com.    These people know us and what we like on the menu.  Well done and little wasted!  But I didn't feel entirely well and opted to take a nap rather than head out for Steel-Challenge.  Thought I'd nap a couple hours then get up and be productive.  Five hours later I woke up.  Well I guess I needed that.  Met back up with the group for dinner and beyond.

Sunday we joined the group for breakfast then headed out to the airport to head home, skipping the Cowboy action shoot.  The flight home again was mostly uneventful.  We had adverse winds and had to dodge several rain shafts but made it back to SandCastle muni before storms closed the route.

I'll have more to add as well as pictures... stay tuned!

Nice to meet-up with you! I didn't realize there were so many 10/22's - but I was way off in Sig-corner... :-)

Should have dropped over to my table; I had a 10/22 and a couple of bricks of 22s.

I'm so glad you attended the Rendezvous. Thank you again for the delivery service, as it made life much easier.

Let me know when you want to test out the new scopes.
