    So, I took the 1917 out and had a ball. Shot 30 rnds left in a 50 rnd range box, took her inside and dragged a patch through the bore, re-filled the range box and on the way back out I remembered something " stupid" shoot iron sights with safety glasses and don't use the prescription ones. Walaah, front sight is clear as a bell and I can see the target too. Always takes me awhile to remember to dump the glasses. Letting her cool abit and will return to fun without the sun. Also remembered to use the shooting jacket. No more shooting 30-06 bolt guns in a tee shirt.

    I'm a southpaw shooter, and I have to reach across.

    Only 70 rnds with the 1917, even with a shooting jacket and my shoulder is done for the day.

    Tobi Keith sang it well; applies to much everything....

    "I ain't as good as I once was
    I got a few years on me now
    But there was a time, back in my prime
    When I could really lay it down
    If you need some love tonight
    Then I might have just enough
    I ain't as good as I once was, but I'm as good once
    As I ever was"

    Of course he's talking about women, but it applies to us older shooters as well...

    All day shooting with a 30.06 is just too painful now...
    The older I get, the more I realize "life in prison" is not that much of a deterrent.
