At the end of the road where I lived was a prarie, so there were no houses in the way of the view. Absolutly breathtaking. Looking out my back door I would see the Olympics snow capped. So I had a view of the mountains all year long.

Beautiful old rifles. I've never seen scopes like those.

That's a nice tight grouping.

Thanks Andy. I love old scopes. They are quite a novelty in the way they were built and you adjusted them (externally).

A buddy of mine is a "bench rest" shooter. Those guys shoot centerfire rifles at 100 yds and have a piece of paper behind their targets moving side to side. That's so the judges can count that they fired the required five shots. Five shots literally make one hole in the actual target they are aiming at. You should hear him talk about how the bullets fly differently when the sun goes in, wind let-off and about the ground mirage when it's hot. I try to retain some of it
