Target shooting

Anna with Highpoint 40 caliber carbine rifle

When Anna and I target practice with the Highpoint rifle we usually take turns shooting 4 shots each and then check the results.

There's room for improvement, but we're getting better.

How many yards was that target grouping?

I was afraid someone would ask that question. It's across the mule garden the short way, but I couldn't guess the distance. We'll have to wait for Mark to chime in.

(By the way, he was being polite. His shots were spot on.)

Could you hazard a guess as far as number of paces?

Mark says he thinks it's about 40 yards. (I kept meaning to go out and pace it, but my memory is so bad that I went out the door to pace...and came back in with swiss chard for our supper. Then went out the door and came back in with carrots for our supper. I'm a bit afraid to go out again... :-) )
