Old Doc Marino stopped over this afternoon.
Yes - and brought a mower part for me to weld! All you waiting
on the ledger ... you remind him next time you see him ... ha
ha ;?) Yes - everything's covered in ice and snow ... and the
Doc's got me fixing lawn mower parts ...
We had some coffee - chatted alittle.
Before he left, we shot the Chaparral 25 Pistol Carbine a few
I have a trap set up at 12 yards in
the shop. Here we were shooting the round buck shot from the ball
magazine. Then, I switched it over to shoot pellets loaded one
at a time.
I just bought some Diana Magnum pellets.
Wanted to try them in my 25 barrel. The barrel likes them just
fine. Doc's on the right here - I'm on the left. You see that
his hold and eye favored a vertical line alittle left of mine.
We had the pistol set to shoot them at 651 fps here.
I turned it up some and it was putting
the Diana pellet out there at 825 fps.
Groups still looked good.
These are offhand standing shots @
12 yards with the Diana pellet thru the Barnes 25 caliber barrel
atop the Chaparral
Another similar rodent dispatched -
standing from 12 yards.
Did I say standing? Heck - this one
was galloping! And the Sun was in my eyes too ... ;?)
