Thumbs up Airstreams to shoot in

I have recently purchased a 67 Safari to take my son Trapshooting in. You will see it at the Illinois State shoot in June and at the Grand American Trap shoot at Sparta Ill., in Aug.
We are going to have a blast,
Andy

rick, can you think of any good places to host such an event?

The NRA Whittington Center near Raton, NM is an excellent place to have a shooting rally. Check with them to avoid a competition weekend when the on site campground might be full.

I have also used my Airstream as base camp for elk hunting. That is when the solar panel earns its keep!

Member 59toaster has been involved in a major frame-off project. Don't recall if it was in that thread specifically but some previous owner/grandfather of his or his wife's put a couple holes into it .... adds character, y'know!

Last month we were at a TCT rally and saw the trailer below. If you look close you will see a plastic rabbit by the door. The owner explained that this was once her aunt's trailer at one time and one day her aunt was returning to the trailer and saw a rabbit by the door. It looked like dinner to her so she took a shot at it and missed. She took a second shot and missed again. The rabbit then moved on. The owner then showed us the two 22 caliber bullet holes just above the rabbits head.

Aluminum never was known for its bullet stopping characteristics. Maybe we should test this theory on a SOB first.Lets say 8-900 times.

Well Gunner what happened to your weasel avatar? You gunning for anyone in particular or just making general pot shots? Your other avatar was so much more appropo.

We have a fly gun. You release the trigger and the disk goes out and annilliates 'em! Makes me feel real good, how'd you know that? You watching me? Almost like a bug on the wall.

Been tryin to animate the thing but it won't work rite. Not a weasel, chipmonk.

Had one of them fly guns a while back. It was a Hoot!

Not gunnin for anyone, just like to inject a little humor.

Do you folks do any reloadin? Thinkin of building a bench in Moho. Like to test loads for bench rest shootin. That way could run back an try new load.

When I was little I heard about this thing called the "Decline of civilization" and I decided that it was something I would like to become involved with.

Cute, but that animal is a black tailed prairie dog (Cynomys ludovicianus), not a chipmunk. And a .308, even with a 110gr bullet, would vaporize the poor little critter.

110 grain Sierra Hollow Point, 53.1 grains Ball C2 powder. Don't intend to use it on that little critter though. Just a little target practice working up loads for a new rifle. Hope to do a little varmit shooting this Summer. Also working up some loads for an elk huntin trip later this year.

Ever been to the Antelope Hunt Rally in Wyoming? Check it out.
