Range night

Got to the indoor range last night and tested out some new ammo in my S+W M41. Up to this point it was on a steady diet of CCI Standard Velocity, but I bought some American Eagle by Federal and it seems to be just a reliable as the regular bulk pack (550) round Federal stuff. I had one hang fire in 120 rounds. It was the last round in that clip and I tried to re-fire without rotating the round but it also failed. I tossed it in the squib can and move on. All in all the results seems the same to me. Keep in mind I was shooting single handed so this was not an accuracy test from a fixed position just a will it shoot test!

Snowboarding at Wachusett Mountain

Who said that old dogs can’t learn new tricks! I finally managed to get on the lift last Friday for the first time this season. I took a few lessons last year and forgot everything. This year I’m helping out with our sons ski program and decided to buy a season pass. I worked it out at the office so I can come out mid afternoon on Friday’s, snag a few tables for the ski kids and get in a few runs. Last week was only my second time this season, but it all came back fairly quickly, and so did the ground! I hate catching an edge……you know what I mean…..one little edge and its face plant time. Other than a few spills I had a great time and it was really fun to board with the GMAN. By the way he falls as much as I do, but he’s closes to the ground.
