I spent all week working in dirt. Well, except for the gunwriter assistant’s football game mid-day Saturday. You see, my wife arranged for a friend to do some dozer work. Now my yard is three times as large as it was and there are rocks on top of rocks to be picked up. All weekend was raking and rock moving and we are a long ways from done.
I did convince the dozer guy to work on my range and my field a bit. I now have a great, though muddy combination rifle / pistol range 50 yards from the house and a brand new once acre food plot. I have a bunch of shooting to do this week. A new S&W M&P 15 that might just coolest AR I’ve seen and more 30 Remington AR loads to test. Looks like I will have some muddy feet.
Today, I mostly worked on an article for Shooting Illustrated about how to set up a long range sniper rifle. This should appear in the November issue. I also talked with Dave Biggers with XS Sights and he is planning a concealed carry event where writers will get to try and test a variety of concealed carry holsters and possibly conduct some on the range testing to determine how user friendly and fast each option is. This should be cool!
