This never happens..at least to me.

Been pretty much stuck in the house for a couple of days (hurricane Barry) and rather than shooting, cleaning/preserving rifles (it's going to be real damp/humid for a long time).

Realized that I hadn't shot a springer in a long long time and figured I'd need a few long sessions to recover some of that springerishness and get at least one of them sighted back in.

So I got one out (picked the pretty one) that was specifically bought for ratting.

Figured I had a long session ahead of me. Had the chronograph put, glass of tea at hand, several pellet choices at hand, back stop re-papered,etc. One test shot at a bottle cap just to see how far off/how work sighting in the neglected rifle might take.

Zinged the bottle cap...had to just be luck, but made me think that at least I'd find holes on a paper target.

Set out a rat-target.

Only 11 shots fired...seemed like a good point to get out of the rain.

That seems like a mighty high quality problem if you ask me 😋

Really didn't expect the rifle to have stayed put or I could shoot it well after laying off springers for a long time.

Those Lightning XL rifles are nice, have an older UK version with a gas ram installed in .22 and love it, very accurate

What's the point in living in the "first world"if you can't obcess over the minutia? IF there is any point to being at the top of the pyrimaid,, it's it the minute details?

MOST of the world is too busy staying alive to give a rat's arse about airugns...I'll give you that...or about the freashness of their Kale...the veganenss of their  fast-foosd dinner...or the MPG of their automobile….or the CO2 footprint they leave on the planet.

Old reference: "Let them eat cake" (although that didn't end well.)

Or a more modern movie reference :"It's good to be the King."

 

I'm ready for either.

Ribbonstone for the win!  haha.   Well said, Sir!

All those who believe in psychokinesis, raise my hand.

Good judgment comes from experience; experience usually comes from bad judgment.
