    Last time I had my Jaeger out I thought it was shooting a little to the right so with some time I decided to check that today. Shore 'nuff, just a bit right at 50 yards. Shot in the 6 ring was a called flyer. Got my finger on the set trigger too quick....horse manure!

    I'm embarrassed to say the next two groups aren't worth posting. They were centered but I didn't shoot quite as tight a group as that one. I have a bevy of excuses too! All true!

    A. I need new lenses for my glasses
    B. I don't shoot 10% of what I used to
    C. I don't SEE as well at 57 as I did at even 40
    D. All of which combine to mean that I am simply not as
    of a shot as I used to be. This gettin' older and havin'
    to admit it ain't fer sissies nor the faint of heart!

    My raggedy old shooting bench with all the goodies for a pleasant couple of hours.

    Just make sure that first shot is good and all will be ok. I know all about getting old!:mad2:

    You're right 'captain.....but havin' fun is a lot more work than it used to be!!! Think I'll head for my recliner and read Von Clauswitz "On War".
