Guess Who’s Coming to Town?

Yep. "You better watch out, you better not cry, Better not pout, I’m telling you why..... Santa Claus is Coming to Town!!"  Check out this video....it's an "Oldie".......Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

P1020704
Here's another "Oldie" .... another of my “Old Pictures” that brings back lots of memories.  I’ll bet that is what I’m telling my boys right about now way back when this picture was taken.  I’m not sure what year it was taken, but it was back when I was a State Trooper in Nebraska. Top left is Mikel, below him is Pat and sitting on my lap is Scott. We had lots of great Christmas's when they were young.  They were always waiting for Santa Claus to come to town.  While I was up half the night putting together what ever it was that Santa was bringing them….LOL.  We all remember those times don’t we?  They were Great Times!

Ruger 10/22
Remember me showing you this picture of Ms. Pat shooting her Ruger 10/22 rifle? Well, look below at how I changed her Rifle’s looks completely..

P1020760
This is how I revamped her gun....doesn't look like the same rifle does it? I changed out the stock to a black synthetic one and added a black 25 capacity Magazine. I'm calling it the "Midnight Special"!


P1020763
Hey, I wonder if she will let me shoot it? While I had it out of it's stock, I took the trigger assembly apart and modified it somewhat. I took out the little piece that holds the Bolt back and modified it so that it’s a lot easier to release the bolt now.   Ah, now lets go shooting!!

P1020765
OK, we went shooting yesterday and this was Ms. Pat’s 6 shot pattern……… the big black circle is the "Bull's Eye"   Not bad huh?  Good shooting Gal!  It was a very enjoyable afternoon of shooting and we put a lot of lead into the hillside. I’m having a little problem sighting in one of the Scopes.  Seems I can’t raise it enough to get it on target.  Does a guy ever have to shim these mounts?   Hummmm, like I said before, I'm a "Pistol" guy.  I don’t know too much about these rifles. Sure wish my good buddy JRoger was here. I’ll have to get up with him for some advice.  

Seinor Moment, Remember

If I happen to post a picture or write something that I have already done before, remember us Seniors do sometimes have memory problems.  Please bear with me, this might happen to YOU someday!Smile

It was a GREAT WEEK!!!!

Thanks for stopping by.. and remember, "You better watch out, You better not cry, Better not pout, I’m telling you why"............. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

I know nothing about shooting but that sure does look like Pat got most of those bullets in the right place. Way to go. Love the final picture - sure does apply to us more often than I like to think about.

I really enjoy reading your blog. The game cameras look neat, might have to get me one of those. By the way I am from Scottsbluff, NE, live in Oregon now but go back each year to visit my family. We are heading south this year for some snowbirding! Doug Hinman
