As promised!

I bought myself a Mauser 1871/84 for Christmas. My wife bought me dies and a mold for Christmas.

I have not shot since Fat Tuesday! I am happy.

The prototype AR 15 is fun. My friend and I built the upper when Brownells was blowing out the parts.

Merle1 it is good to see you got out! 8-)
hope you had a good time,

I know these match's help me get to the range with my old stuff, and that is just plain fun. :)
