Clean the Gun, Clear the Head

One of the reasons Texas is great is the fact that you get to see dogs in the back of pick-ups as you go off for a shoot. I try to get out a couple of times a week to blast away, or plink about with a .22, which is an old bolt action J.C. Higgins with iron sights. Nothing fancy, but accurate - I like the deliberation of working the bolt and focusing on the front bead sight, also the length of the thing works well for me. So that rifle gets plenty of use, but just because it's a lowly .22 doesn't mean it somehow cleans itself.

Speaking of which, I gave it a well needed take-down this evening by way of displacement activity and as usual found cleaning the weaponry clears the head. There's doubtless a moral in that, but I'll spare you the sermon. Here's a picture of some saddles instead.

Stay on the horse, shoot straight and have a blessed Sunday.

Gun rights,

There's a lot to be said about dogs in the back of pick up trucks, I love it!

It's wonderful to see you're back and still cleaning and looking after your guns.

Do the saddles mean that you got out riding once again?

A blessed Sunday to you as well LSP.

Glad you liked the dog pic, Darlin. You see it a lot 'round here.

Managed to ride about for an hour or so - great fun!

Good for you LSP, we all deserve a bit of fun in our lives. Hope you have an extremely happy Sunday!

OT, but you might be interested in this, and fractures within the Episcopal church.

I don't have the insight to comment like you do.
