The range I go to does not have a good assortment of targets to choose from...large silhouette, small silhouette, that's it. Nothing for actual bullseye type shooting. So I have been downloading targets online and printing them out on 8.5 X 11 paper. Some are colorful, some are practical. Here are some of the web links.

It's not education, it's age. The rule that if you want to learn something about computers, ask someone younger has generally worked for me. Being almost a quarter century old, I now must ask the underclassmen for computer help.

My grandfather was alive for both world wars, the first airplane flight and the moon landing, and was alive at the rise and fall of communism.

My parents were born during WWII and remember the air raids, the low supply of food, neighborhood collections of scrap materials, and VE day. My father was assistant university faculty when the senior faculty were communist refugees from nazi Europe (ever wonder how our education system became so stinking communist?) Communists, Jews, and Communist Jews alike screwed him over for being a conservative blonde haired blue eyed guy who grew up in freedom.

Sure, I was born in 1982. Pretty much on the tail end of Gen X and beginning of Gen-whatever. But my parents were almost WWII gen, not really baby boomers at all. In a sense, I'm three generations in one. Based on my parentage, I'm almost a baby boomer, based on my birth I'm mutant Gen-X and Gen-Whatever.

Sure I'm rounding up to a quarter century, but I sure do feel every year of it.

BRG3 - I remember when I hit the 25 mark, and that was one that bothered me the most, after that it was, "So What!". Like everybody else, 21 was a goal, but 30 was not a desireable thing, then you get to appreciate them as long as they are good.

Just hang in there doing the things you need to, especially in educating yourself, and you too can happily look back at 65, or 70 or . . .

I was a "Depression Baby" and lived in Depression Mode until I left home, for the USMC. My dad and his family wouldn't or couldn't let it go. His family would always argue with him over whether President Franklin Delano Roosevelts' second Vice President Henry Wallace was a Socialist or not. My dad always called him a Socialist. I always saw him as a Communist and FDR as a Socialist with a Communist wife. Eleanor Roosevelt (FDR's first cousin, and his wife) had Roosevelt pull a power play on ALL the Press agencies, forcing them to hire Eleanors' choices (all card carrying Communists) to lead their Press Agencies (AP, UPI, ABC, NBC, CBS, Reuters, Mutual Don Lee), and if they didn't, then they were refused admission to the Roosevelt Press Conferences, and would only have second hand news. Without that access they would fall by the wayside. Many of these, and the Communist photographers, were refugees from Europe, too, and fit the general description you have laid out.

To understand what I have said, unless you lived through it, read the book "The Roosevelt Myth" by John T. Flynn, 1948. Since all the people mentioned in the book, except FDR, were still alive, if what he wrote was not factual, he would have been sued, and he was not. John T. Flynn explains it a lot better than I can.

I think I'm going to load some of these onto my flash drive and head off to kinkos for some late-night printing... and tomorrow, I shoot off some of my new Czech Silver Tip 7.62x54R (See Military Surplus Ammunition in Mosin Nagant for more).
