...end of a long dry spell...

...in several categories...i will clarify

...the out-laws are in from yankee country...

...shot a barnett penetrator crossbow(over-n-over...lol) very impressive...amazingly accurate,18 of 18 bolts in a fist size poi at 33 yards(lased) once we got the optics issues ironed out...last time i handled one, was in the mid nineties, it was...primitive(at least by today's standards evidently)
 ...at 41 yards it only opened up a litlle bigger than my fist, at 52 yards they all hit about a dinner plate(with a flyer about 8 inches high right, and a overshoot...human error i'm sure...lol)


...live rounds downrange also, long time it seems since that happened...shot everything i own, time to practice in earnest again boys and girls...


...my experiment in a 'dry lubed' only bushy was a great success...from nib to about 1900 rounds after initial cleaning and lube...used dry moly(part # available on request)...not a drop of oil anywhere, no failures that weren't attributed to mags, was not babied either, she looked like hammered on hell...unfortunately she got a good bath today, times for lube are fast approaching, might i suggest mobil 1 synthetic...

...chores and stores completed,locked, loaded, cached and spent...

...GodBlessMyRepublic

I like crossbows and feel every Survivalist/Prepper should own at least one, along with a good hunting bow. Their value goes without saying.

Glad your head is still in the game brother.

Ken said...

...hey Scout, the head's always in the game...just keeping the rest of me playing is the trick

...yeah, a crossbow will be in my near future, as will be more actual practice too...

Hey Ken,

Glad you're still around. On another note, I think I got one of Craig's fans over at my site. Seems he's a gay cop and he likes to threaten people.

LOL!

And I thought they were all here in California.

Ken said...

...hey China, dropping the hammer on live rounds is a plus...but, doesn't stop the practice, just saves the snap caps...take it easy Bro'


...mornin' Catman, at least he didn't 'anon' it...track it(?)

Catman said...

Track it? Phony profile. Maybe smart enough to use a proxy. Probably not worth it. He's a null anyways. Thanks for the thought :-)

This troll has been by my blog, Bill Nye's, and Diogenes' today as well. Yep, he is an "old friend" (fiend). Wirecutter handed him his ass some months ago and he disappeared, but apparently he is back for more...
