Goofed around with an AR and had a blast teaching my daughter how to engage targets from barricade positions. She was busting pieces of clay pigeons at 104yds with the .22 with a very high hit percentage. Easily one of my best days at the range.


Not sure if any of you view the AR precision thread, but the Vortex Venom is an interesting option for a sub 500$ optic. The optical clarity certainly won’t hold you back for group shooting at 100-300yds. Thanks Scott for the recommendation.

I've read part of that thread so far, very interesting and informative.  I haven't gotten to the most recent stuff yet.  Nice shooting!

I'm a big fan of Vortex because of their value vs price ratio as well as their warranty.  I've been very impressed with their customer service as well. I can see why that particular scope has been so well received but I try to avoid Chinese made products as much as possible.  I really wish Vortex would move all their lines to their other manufacturers in the Philippines and Japan.

My new but not new anymore Grendel build sports a Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50.  Got it marked way down when they introduced the Gen II.  Still waiting to see how well it performs.

I've got the same scope on a 6.5 creedmoor bolt gun and I've been pretty happy with it. It's a great value at the discounted price for sure.

If other manufacturers did it, they likely would as well. To compete in the affordable market, outsourcing to China is required. But, with them having varying tiers, you can get an optic from them that is manf. in China, Philippines, Japan or USA.

Went camping and canoeing over the weekend with my daughter and some friends at Raysville campground towards Augusta. What a great spot. People running it were very nice. Bathrooms were clean.

Spent most of the day and part of the evening at Stone Mountain.  Sister's son was visiting from OK so we've been doing the tourist thing for the last week.  

Pricey but fun.  Interesting and fun Halloween laser show.  Absolutely wrecked my spine but it was fun.  Probably go back for the Christmas celebration.

Finally............got some good arrows for my new recurve and got to shoot it Saturday.  

I had forgotten how fun shooting a recurve is.  I still need a lot more practice to get my skill level up there but I can at least keep most of them in the bag at 25 yards.  

It's nice to be able to shoot in your own yard.  We couldn't do that back in OKC.

It's crazy how much of a difference marinating comes out better than just seasoning. This blows the pork tenderloin I made a couple weeks ago out of the water.

Also just bought an Aimpoint T2 so my wallet hurts.

It was just whatever I had on hand. Olive oil, apple cider vinegar, salt, pepper, minced garlic, onion power, chili powder, and some hot sauce I got from Cola Classic.
