    I Think I May Be Clairvoyant

    Took TR and her Browning 7mm Rem Mag to the range, let's just call it an arranged date, as I thought it was time they met. I let her know that it was likely to boot a bit more than her 243 but she was happy enough to give it a nudge.



    Her 1st 5 shots at 100m with the handloads I knocked up for my Zastava 7mm Rem Mag. Think there is potential there.



    I haven't zeroed the rifle as it will be getting a 20MOA rail and better optics during the week. Might need to have a look at the rifle as it was a bit hard to extract most of the fired brass with garks on the ends of the necks.



    Oh and the clairvoyant bit? This is her first time to to the range in about a year. I can see my arse getting well and truly kicked this October.

    Funny how the girls can shoot like that isn't it?

    If the rest of them gave up the whole "I'm a girl and I can't do that" thing us blokes would be in trouble...

    I have been trying to get my daughter into long range GM. I reckon she would enjoy it but as yet I haven't been able to persuade her to try.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I wouldn't say it as funny. More rude really.

    Worth trying Rushy. But then again it is still good to have something she can't beat you at, if you know what I mean.

    There will always be the blokey things that I will always be able to beat her at GM. Admittedly it isn't a long list of things but I look forward to the day I can use them to win one over her.

    I have a 300WinMag that is softer than a .243 that I am keen to give her a go at. She told me this afternoon that she is up for a shot so I just need to organise it. A

    Sweet. So sort your Shit out then!

    And when you do, grab my rifle and take it to (and there's some loaded rounds to).
