    How about whacky shot of the day boasting?

    you're gonna get it anyway,...

    OK,... super hero shot today!
    Ground Squirrels make a really high pitched chirping noise when they're distressed; seems Prairie Dogs do the same.
    We had one out back that was repeatedly firing them off every couple of seconds, for like 10 minutes. I could hear it from inside. So I went out on the patio, and had a seat behind my blind. The bleating continued, and, I was actually using my ears with my eyes close, binaurally following it as it ran around under our pool deck. It kept getting closer, going hard left, and then coming towards binaural center as close as it come to getting towards my right side.
    This bleeting kept up for another 10 minutes. My mind started wandering, and I started watching birds, and not paying attention. Suddenly, I looked up again, and, there was something on the pool fence (chain link), at the top of the fence. I wasn’t sure if it were a bird or not, as it appeared suddenly. So I scoped it, and, saw it breathe out as it bleeped again.
    This was at likely 60’+, and at the opposite end of the pool area. My shot, was below a piece of glass and copper art piece that Sarge loves, through a layer of chain link, and then beyond, to the top of the fence at the opposite end of the pool.
    I took aim, and, by pure luck, the squirrel was centered within the diamond-shape of the first layer of chain link; and just under Sarges glass piece. Pop goes the squirrel. Shot went through the chain link diamond, and, the squirrel kindly obliged by centering his back in that same diamond frame.
    I came in, and told Sarge of my shot, and she said you got the fence taunter? her eyes bulging…!
    She’s seen that fence climbing tactic a bunch of times, and it irritated her like a heckling. So, suddenly, hero status.



    OK,.. pic to go along with story,...
    Lowest level of pic location is the patio, where my squirrel blind is; looking up at pool deck. The glowing reddish glass art thing is on the pool fence. The squirrel was on top of fence, at opposite end of pool, located directly above the pool ladder handles. Killing glass art thing = instant death for me.

    Shot; above plants, below glowing art glass object thing, through diamond pattern of first fence layer, and at the fence top support pipe rail at opposite end of deck.

    I like the CZ clones as well.
    I had a small frame Tanfoglio for a while.
    It shot straight, but I could not get attached to it because of the nylon frame.
    I sold it, and bought the 75 that I posted above.

    I presently own a Canik C100, a clone of the CZ 75 Compact.
    Turkish-made, so some may grouse about it.
    If you shoot it, though, you will have to admit that it's a fine gun.
    Though I polished up the action as best I can, which smoothed it out a lot, this one still has a much heavier trigger than the 75, so it lives in my nightstand drawer.

    Yup! She's a keeper. I have the original scope blocks and every once in a while I think about getting an old 10-power Unertl for it...

    Small-bore target rifles are a fetish of mine. The gun below was bought by my Dad in the early '50s, when he and his best friend, Alfred, used to shoot in the NYC small-bore leagues. Dad eventually tired of the gun and sold it to Alfred. It was the first rifle I ever shot (in Alfred's basement) at the tender age of 6. When Alfred passed in the early 2000s, another old friend bought the gun from Alfred's widow. When I found out that Bruce now had the gun, I made an offer to buy it. He gave it to me for what he paid, which was $225. My kids and I shoot this gun off our deck quite often. Super accurate with CCI CB Longs. The Parker-Hale sights are original to the gun.

    Here's one of my newest acquisitions. It's a canik tp9sfx, pronounced janik. It comes from the factory with the slide ported, and machined for mounting a red dot. I was going to put a red dot on it, but the factory sights are awesome. Comes with 2 20rd mags, and a bunch of different mounts for optics. It's a tack driver, literally. My friend stuck a thumb tack in the bullseye, and I hit it first try from about 35'. 9mm, 3.5lb trigger, it's supposed to be for competition. Easy to shoot quickly and accurately.

    This thread had me wanting another firearm until I go upstairs and take a look at what I don't use. No need for more. Just get out and shoot. I need more ammo.

    You could do small scale Zulu reenactments with it.

    So, I went to buy a small box of .22's yesterday.
    I didn't expect the rectal exam, and anal probe. I was shocked, and walked out without any.
    California truly sucks anymore because of the safety pins.

    I have several friends in Shasta county, one of the shrinking number of gun friendly areas in CA. Even they are saying it sucks and one going out of state to buy.

    Background checks on ammo will likely be pushed next in MA, IL, NY, NJ, CT, CO and other like-minded states.

    For CA residents only, be sure to register your assault weapon by July or face the consequences.

    Opinions requested,..
    .22cal long rifle bird shot rounds, and ground squirrels at around 30' max, more like 25'. Clean kill power?

    and another question,..
    gun powder and the threat of wild fires from the powder. threat?
    the 30' shot has a firewood pile as a backdrop. So, I'm thinkning along those lines.

    I'd recommend two brands for your .22LR shot shells:

    1. Federal Game-Shok No.12 bird shot, 25gr.

    2. CCI No. 12 bird shot, 31gr.

    I would not recommend either round for squirrels as there is not enough mass to the individual BB's inside the shell to kill one. I'd stick to a FMJ or HP round for squirrels.

    Yes, there is a threat of fire when shooting in the woods or at a wood backstop. It's not the gunpowder so much as it is the hot bullet.
