Growing up, certain days were simply another day. I liked that. Wife has other thoughts...every year. Fine, at home, fine. Really cool gift, hug and a peck on the cheek...okay.
Buddy stops by to go to the range, and wife says "he'll be ready in a minute, just setting up his b-day present"...afternoon turned into a rifle sighting in, gun store hopping event and the a stop to wash off the dirt from our drive, and my money was no good...for almost too long...

Sighted in a .243 for the youngest ans a 6.5x55 for the eldest

.243 upper left, 6.5 lower right..6 shots in the same hole...benched.





Wait, I'm complaining why??????


Wife got me an Excalibur 9 tray dehydrator. Range report when I can get to it...Dang that woman!

Congrats...wife made me give up my birthday...

    A Veteran is someone that served in the Military, it does not matter where they served.

    Happy Birthday!
    Rifles look good to go for the kids, and good chamberings, too.
