Despite having cooled in the trunk of the car for weeks, the little can of white spray paint worked and I was able to brighten the steel plate to make it visible again. What a hoot popping/swinging it with the 7.5 MAS. Those French rifles are sorely under-rated, if you ask me (I know, you didn't!).

Today was the fourth stop at the range since Thanksgiving.  The rifle range was cold with that wind coming in head on.  Results weren’t the best, but I’ll blame the cold.

The plate racks are shielded by a hill so the breeze wasn’t nearly as bad. I levered through 70 or so old surplus .38 Specials. The round nose FMJ bullets sure load nice in the Marlin. Fun stuff.

I need to take out my lever action. Been too long. All I have been shooting lately is clays.

Darn, three posts. Glad to see someone else is getting some trigger time.
We should do a three gun match sometime; three levers, that is.

Gathered up a variety of reloads and rang steel with the SKS and the .45. I limited my shooting, as I was feeling extremely guilty that I didn't pay any excise tax for range use. Darn, I sure pray no one decides to have a mass shooting due to the lack of money to spend on gun violence prevention.
