Well.........I'll admit I have long thought shooting steel was super silly, and fairly childish. Especially off a shooting bench with deluxe sandbags. I have five shooting ranges here on my homestead, and I have slowly become bored with three of them, I know that is true, because I need to fire-up one of the dozers and plow the new growth of brush and young trees, or just be honest with myself and abandon them. The range that I use the most is......"The Outhouse Range". I call it the outhouse range because it is the one I walk (or sometime hurry) past on the way to, yep' the outhouse. Now my neighbors think it is funny, and seem to derive great pleasure in scaring the crap out of me, before I reach the old doorless one hole butt freezer. I do appreciate that most of them hibernate about five months a year. It is because of this occasional problem that I find it prudent to always invite a "problem solver" for this short adventure walk. And so over the years, it has become a habit to clean the bore with a few "Snap" Point n'Shoot shots at the permanent targets on that "Outhouse Range". It being my nature to be lazy, and this laziness seems to becoming a 24 hour lifestyle as I drift through my mid seventies phase of physical deterioration and accelerating dementia. Now, I have noticed that someone is neglecting to maintain the permanent wood targets. So I have just invested in several 1/2" thick Gongs. Now......here is how I am rationalizing this. (To be continued, if I can maybe concoct a plausible rationalization). Till then, I just figure it will be fun. At least I am not "Shooting Steel"..........I am shooting "Gongs". There is a difference, and besides you never know when you might be attacked by hordes of angry "Gang'gaGongs".
