    There seems to be some pressure on our "governing" people.
    Some prohibitions just were canceled or eased.
    I just discovered that our pistol range is still open and, tomorrow, I'll start my training as range officer.
    I'm really glad.
    Now I'll try to get hold of the other guys from the rifle range and see if they will keep the joint running or not.
    That would be my real bingo!
    Just reloaded for the K31icon, after a long time. And for the Brazilianicon Mauser.
    Another positive thing: I had contact with a person who was found positive to Covid, but today I had my swab taken and I'm clear.
    So, there is nothing between me and the range now!
    Gentlemen, I wish you all a great week-end!

    Easy peasy start as RO.
    Three military guys training for VIP protection and another soldier just keeping his skills.
    All extremely disciplined.
    No trouble at all.
    Fired a box of .22 with the Colt revolver during the long lull between them.
    All in all, very relaxing that way.

    Important to remember a range officer APPLIES the rules, he doesn't interpret them or enforce them.

    I have almost the twin of that one Ovidio, it was some old local shooters beloved range rifle, and never went through the Weedon "repair". Ashamed to say I've never shot it, but it has shot plenty I can see.

    They're a superb design overall; it's pitiful how many "Mauser" action rifles even today still don't have decent ergonomics on their safety catches.

    did your p14 have the fancy Parker Hale target sights on it when you bought it, or did you source those later? I sure wish someone would start making repros of those at a reasonable price point.

    It was on. Unfortunately the original rear sight is missing. I might buy it one day... But on Winchesters they were numbered, so that is definitely a loss.

    I'm scratching my head trying to figure out your setup for the 3rd picture - camera clearly focused through your spotting scope, but still somehow part of your face is in it too! ...aha, reflection from the outer ring of glass on the scope lense. Threw me off for a moment as I wouldn't have expected the edge of the center area focused downrange and the outer reflection to be so sharp and well defined.

    I try to do my best when taking those pictures, but it is not easy. As soon as I touch the scope, everything starts wobbling around.

    Ovidio-- Depending on the circumstances, I would back to who ever you purchase the rifle from and see if they have the original rear sight. Sometimes you luck but most of the time not. The worst they can say is no.
