Yanked the wheels off the truck and threw the spacers in the trash where
they belong. I might take them out of the garbage and shoot at em' with the
ol' 12 gauge tomorrow evening if I'm feeling saucy. Goddamn things were
working their way loose every 15 miles or so.
Anyone interested in some wheels, center caps and lugs with a grand total of
50 miles on them? They are FLAWLESS.
Cragar 441 series, 16x8, 4" backspacing, zero offset, 5 x 4.75. Got the
center caps as pictured and (20) 12mm x 1.5 chrome acorn lugs.
I'd rather not have to drive out to Jegs to return em' (a few hours away),
so if anyone is interested drop me a line at
gmc(underscore)man(at)adelphia(dot)net. I'm in East-Central Ohio.
Hello Doc & Refinish King,
Ahhh, my kind of talk. That's my favorite, too: 12 ga. sabot slugs through
a rifled Hastings barrel for 100 yd targets, and 000 or 00 for anything
closer (from precision to concussion shooting, eh?). Was never a good shot
at rapid-fire LR .22 rifles but double-triple-tapping with pistols, any
caliber, was always fun -- my preference was the .45.
I didn't mean .22 LR, I meant long range (LR). My bad, should have
specified what LR meant! My caliber of choice for that kind of distance was
either .308 (scoped M-14 and/or scoped H&K 91), or .30-06 (custom
The rapid fire pistol was double-tap, two shots per target as you made your
way through the course, and while 9mm or .40 S&W were easier to control in
rapidfire (most guys shot those calibers), my fave was always my good ol'
.45 as well! A nice compensator can <almost> get the muzzle jump of a .45
down to that of a 9mm.
I have since moved mostly to pistols and shotguns, because there aren't any
places around here to shoot rifles at the distances I like, and pistol
ranges are a dime a dozen.
Gettin' to be "blast snowmen with 00 buck" time of year here in Ohio! I
like to make em' out back with my wife, hose em' down so they ice over, then
blast em' with the 00 and watch them explode. The simpler things in life
make me happy, he he he.
Sorry, I should've seen LR meant long range once you started talking 1000
meter distances. I'm nowhere even close to that kind of consistent shooting
Longest single shot I made was offhand on the back of a diesel pickup (had
brother switch off engine of course :-)), .306 semi-auto Remington, 3-9
variable scope on max magnification, no wind, almost dusk, and I plugged a
six foot 'roo right in the ticker from about 450 yards (we drove up and
noted the odometer readings). That was more luck than anything else, but
sure was sore from the back slapping I got.
Shortest single shot I didn't make was walking through the woods deer
season, almost dawn, flashlight strapped to end of Remington pump shotgun
with iron-sights deer barrel, loaded with deer slugs (law in NY State), and
an 18 to 22 lb. wild turkey flew right in front about 10 yards away, perched
on a pine branch about 15 feet high, silhouetted. Missed it by a friggin'
mile. Sure was sore from the ribbing I got.
Snowmen targets sounds like fun. Ever tried an old water heater? Yep, love
them simple booms in life..
