New header

If you're reading this from a feed, do me a favor - click on over to the actual blog. I've added - finally, after a couple years - a new header image.

I took the 22/45 and Marlin 795 to the range last night and played inside on the 50-foot line for a half-brick or so. My accuracy remains minute-of-zombie. I also tried putting the camera (Canon SX130IS) on the bench, facing straight up, and recording HD (1080) video. The new image is a still frame from that video, cropped to appropriate dimensions.

Side note: Eley Sport rimfire ammo STINKS. Not accuracy-wise - it seems to be pretty good stuff, actually, and I'll run a box through the Savage shortly to verify - but it smells. BAD. That's going to be an outdoor-only ammo for me.

I like that a LOT.

Yeah snazzy picture. And that's just a .22? That's a lot more flash than I expected.

BTW nothing smells worse than that Aguilla Stuff. Dunno what they make their powder out of but it smells downright BAD!

Weerd - yep, the good old 22/45. I *think* that was taken with Federal bulk pack (550 red box) ammo.

Nice shot of your plasma pistol discharging. I can't look at it without my brain adding "b-dew! b-dew"s. ;)

Elmo - it *does* make PEW PEW PEW sounds ... they just sound like POP POP POP.

Incidentally, regarding that Savage, I just recently picked one up, based partly on your recommendation many moons ago. Good advice, that; it seems to fall in a real sweet spot of quality-per-price. I am well pleased. ;)
