  1. Got up real early this morning to drive out to my favorite shooting spot. Loaded the car and brought the new 91/30 and an M44 that I havent shot yet. When I got there the road was barricaded off because of the drought we've been having. The entire forest was closed including the nearby lake. I drove home the long way to go to another shooting spot. It is a really rough dirt road but I made it in my car. When I got there, there were dozens of signs that said No Shooting. I decided to go to the range on my way home and when I got there, it was crowded. Seems like everyone was out today. Disappointed, I drove home and put the toys away. Over 100 miles this morning and never fired a shot. The only good thing about today is that I dont have to clean the guns. Cant wait much longer to see how that new Tula shoots!:nod:

    I hate when that happens. If I had a dime for every time I went to the range, only to have to wait an hour and a half to shoot....
