The venue was Casey's folks ranch near Decatur Texas, the most amazing place and I think ranks
right up there with Lively Ranch.
The weather was perfect (a bit breezy but not bad) We had a good turn out, but we missed Steve and Bryan.

David brought his excellent collection of targets and Casey's "Bottle Trap" provided hours of fun
The Dragon slayers were devastating in both sound and energy on impact. Their slugs just
slammed right through any of the back stops we had out there ..... and of course we could not shoot them at most of the targets.
We had 28 riles to play with and although I did not get to shoot a lot of them, the ones I did try
were really nice. Here's some that were not being used at the time:

Here's the view of the targets.... nice collection and good spread.
The 850's stood their own against any and all of the guns there, impressing everyone.
I think Casey will soon add one to his growing collection.
The 177 on HPA was a treat and everyone tried it out. It hit everything you pointed it at out to 65 yards.
The breezy day made it a bit of a challenge for the 177's beyond that range.

Thanks to Casey and his Mom for a wonderful day
