rootin' tootin' shootin' videos for ya.

This first one is from the rifle range at Cherokee public hunting area. It was a fairly chilly January 17th. The snow had finally melted from the 'Blizzard of 2009' and we were itching to get out of the house. The road in was the muddiest I had ever seen it, but I went for it in the ol' Grand Prix. All of the other shooters, in their 4 wheel drive vehicles kept saying "you drove that car down that road?". I was a little worried about getting back out, but we made it well , except for the trim that goes just under the rear bumper, that we dragged down the road awhile until I stopped and clipped it back in.:

This next one is from the following weekend (Jan. 24th). Again, it was a chilly day. We went to the Fort Gibson WMA rifle range near Wagner, Oklahoma. The parking lot is right off a paved road so no problems with the car this time but, you have to walk about 100 yards or so to get to the benches and it was ankle deep mud all the way (you can see that in the next video). Anyway, this is Taylor shooting his Mossberg model 500 12 gauge.

While there we met up with Taylor's friend Jason and his family (well Josh is soon to be a part of his family). Here is Josh shooting an incendiary round through his Mossberg 12 gauge. I think it would have been more spectacular if the wind wasn't blowing so hard.
