They called it an improvement

On the county road to my house, just outside of town, there used to be a little one-lane bridge about 20ft long that had stood up for decades.  About a year ago, the county came to the conclusion that one lane bridges are bad.  They therefore took out the bridge, put in a culvert pipe and dumped dirt over the whole thing, making about a 20-30 yard dirt section in an otherwise paved road.  A couple of heavy rains later, and this is what we have:

Fortunately, the ducks just think it's cool that they can sit around in the road without getting run over.

The aliens are pretty safe

Well, here's the first attempt at Conservative UAW Guy's Postal Match with the .357 Blackhawk.  I'll have to try this again with the .45 once my arms stop shaking from the gas weedeater and my hits (hopefully) get less random.

Those things are pretty small from 10 yards.  OTOH, I also take comfort in a few common facts: 10 yards is the maximum range for the vast majority of defensive shootings, and those 8.5x11" sheets are roughly the size of the center-mass target area on most people.

Postal Match This Month

In light of January's events, I've just got to give this one an entry from Stephenville.

Also, keep an eye on SurplusRifleForum.com's postal match forum.
