A Day at the Shooting Range

Greg also knows that Wilma loves to shoot rifles. (That’s why I really try to “tow the line” around her!)
So he planned on taking us to his neighbor’s property and shoot his rifles at a range that he helped build. And what a beautiful outdoor range it is!
I don’t know much about caliber of rifles, so I asked Greg. He said we started with the smallest and worked up to the largest. These are the caliber of rifles that we shot: a 22LR, a 220 Swift, a 243 Winchester, a 6.5/284 Norma, a 308 Remington, and a 308 Savage.

I really have to tell you, Wilma is a great shot! She really enjoys target shooting, and I believe Greg enjoyed it as much as she did.

The range that Greg uses is one to be proud of. Even the local police dept. is interested in possibly utilizing it. The targets are set at 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, & 400 yards.

Thank you Greg for another great day. We really enjoyed ourselves, and admire your rifles.
Until next time, be safe and God Bless.

  1. Looks like fun. I have hardly even seen my firearms collection since we went full time. Check them once a year at the storage spot to make sure all is well:(
