Bailing on the Salt Mine

This afternoon was pretty slow at Ye Olde Salte Mine, so I went to the range. This time, I unlimbered my Ruger Vaquero in .45 Long Colt, loaded with 250gr. flat-nosed lead rounds that were loaded to SASS standards.

I shot the target at about 25', one handed style, as it seems just wrong to shoot a big thumb-buster using a two-handed hold. What is curious is that the head-shots are drifting off to the right, while the body shots are pretty well centered. I suspect that may be because the sights are the shitty traditional 19th Century thin post and notch and there was not a discrete thing to aim at. I also need to tape the target to something to get the top clear of the hanger so I can not worry about aiming low to avoid dinging the hanger.

I was half-way tempted to aim just below the bottom of the 7-ring, as I have a friend who is having a bit of man-trouble in her life and she might have appreciated the gift of an appropriately ventilated target.

I'm taking off for the weekend tomorrow morning, I don't expect to be online until I get back home on Sunday afternoon.

Have a good weekend!

Pretty good shootin' for a Democrat. :) No comment about pulling right.
