Dog & Gun

My dog, Blue Cartoon Contest, loves gunfire and he loves the range. So do I, so I took the little barker out to the country for some more remedial pistol practice.

Blue Ferox

Lo and behold, no sooner had I drawn my .45 from its holster than my excitable Heeler began to bark with joy. He ended up being relegated to the 50 yard bench...

A Bit More to the Left, Please

I tried out some slightly better ammo, to see if it'd improve my groups, and it certainly didn't hurt, tightening things up by about an inch. But I can't brag, because my performance wasn't stellar, unlike the cop who took down the Muslim terrorists in Garland.

The Prophet

At the end of the shoot, I pitted my wits against the ancient adversary, swinging steel plates, at 10, 15, 25 and 30 yards. They got a severe beating, until I moved out to the 30 yard mark, at which point they were mostly safe.

A Dog in the Grass

There was a time when they weren't safe at 30++ yards. I want to get back to that.

Shoot straight,

Blue Range Master seemed to have a good time. He's smiling in the photos. The groups will come down as the practice becomes muscle memory.

And as to the cartoon haters...well, let them eat lead.

How did I fail to comment on the adorableness of Blue Cartoon Ears?? Total oversight on my part. What a happy dog!

I think it's pretty much a matter of rounds down range, LL.

The ears certainly win a prize, Jenny!
