    Definitely Not My Best Work, But...

    Well, I absolutely made a rookie mistake last night and left the house without a full mag. Came across the sounder of hogs that visit the SW corner of the ranch last night and got set up on them.

    I was not doing very well, missing on several of my opening shots, when I felt the bolt hold open. Thinking I had a malfunction I quickly turned my headlamp on and checked the chamber...empty. So after a few choice words I watched as the remainder of the piglets trotted off.

    However they stopped for a bit, so I gave pursuit. I caught up to them and switched from my thermal to my headlamp again. That got them going, but I did manage to hit one on my first shot. That stopped it long enough for a second bullet, and then I was able to walk up and finish it off.

    I finished with four. Should have been more. Lesson learned the hard way.

    At least you had 7 rounds.!
    Try going to the deer blind and leaving the mag at home with a wall hanger walking by.
    Dig around in my knapsack finding one loose round in the bottom.
    He made my wall. Lol

    Thank you. I started making them because I wanted to show other landowners that I was careful while I was on their property. Too many idiots running around in the dark, shooting in every direction can really ruin a good thing.

    I kind of expect the hogs to go away for a while now that there's food in the hills again. Things will probably pick back up around Nov-Dec.
