    A Good and Unexpected Start into 2021

    Today I woke up and was shure we would be in “condition red”, as has been told for weeks for all the week-ends during the festivity period.
    Did lots of works at home, from 7:00 AM up to 3:30 PM, when a fiend of mine, the president of the shooting range, posted a picture of his daughter shooting.
    I immediately asked what was going on, and he told me the range was open, because we were orange and not red.
    20 minutes later I was there with my faithful S&W 27-2 and the Bernardelli Practical Elite.
    I feel a lot better now...

    Any chance to send happiness pills downrange is to be taken with great enthusiasm, like you did Ovidio!

    Wadcutters Jim.
    I really started loving them lately.
    Rounds 3 and 24 went a tad out of the way, but in general...
    We had bad light, but I needed to shoot...to soothe my troubled soul. I’m really starting to suffer because of this situation...
    So, I concentrated and shot as good as I could, with not a perfect view. But I was really into it.
    I felt the round at 8 ‘o clock leaving the gun wrongly, but it was too late...
    Round 24...
    I know,because I always load 5 rounds, and that was the one before the last of my half box.
    And it hurt...;-D
    But 50 rounds in a tad more than 3” is not bad at all.

    Ovidio-- Love your S&W 27, I have one which a four inch barrel which I love. Have not been able to get out to shoot since Mid December an idiot at work passed around the COVID-19 to everyone. He thought it was the flu. Still trying to recover. Hope to get out in the next several weeks to shoot mine.

    That's the one thing that hasn't really changed here, shooting. At least on one of my ranges. There's usually no one there anyway.
    Regards, Jim
