Creepy

And you did the right thing.  her asking, is odd to say the least.  Never mind knowing about the range and being on foot back there.  If it were Freeport it may had made more sense.  And wearing a hood...  creepy

I also did something else I've never done. I shot my chronograph.  Twice!   

I had it tucked behind two stacked barrels taking advantage of the shade. But I was shooting at an odd angle. And stupidly shooting at the very bottom of the screen window, as opposed to where you want to be, up top. Shooting my 500 Linebaugh, which I haven't since last year. Flinched and dipped the muzzle taking a chunk out of the sensor housing and blasting a shade arm. It still worked, fixed it with some tape.  And never missing a change to CONTINUE to be stupid, I didn't adjust the height of the tripod. A couple shots later I did it again.

Looking online tonight, PACT no longer makes the sensor housing that way,  and they don't show any of the old style parts. I guess I will get to work with some kydex scraps and some epoxy and fix it myself. It's that or spend $80+ bucks on a new screen setup.

At least your mistakes ended with the chrono. Letting in the hooded gypsy could have cost you a lot more than $80. That was a smart choice to decline.

Wow, that's kind of nuts. Besides the fact that it says "no authorized vehicles beyond this point", which implies, if you don't have business further up the road, stay out. I've shot my chrono shade sticks so many times, they're probably work hardended from bending them back into shape. :) I'm amazed how tough they are to begin with, seeing as they just hold up some plastic. Mine have taken the 135gr 1480fps 10mm rounds and just bent a bit.

I just grazed the housing twice, but enough to break it and one if the shade supports.  If I hadn't been shooting 50 caliber I probably would have missed.  lol

I emailed PACT last night and they got back to me today.  They said they don't sell them and don't have any working ones, but they might be able to come up with a used housing, I assume from someone else's unrepairable unit.

Hey we gots a new judge
You need to get out of the bathroom more often.
The whole spectacle was one of the biggest travesty of the Senate, and one of the biggest defeats of the Democrats.

I just can't watch the "news" anymore.  It is so disturbing in so many ways.  Particularly on the way it reflects our current culture

Talking about the Devil.

In the "news"... Hurricane Michael.  Not sure what will be more ferocious, the storm or the non-stopping coverage and hype which ensues

I was at the doctor yesterday stuck in that little examination room waiting on them.  The only thing worse than the pain I was in was The View was on the TV. The only break from The View was to breaking news break ins, one about Niki Hailey resigning ( not "breaking news" worth , and more vulture coverage of the limo crash , also nothing worthy of the interruption. Not even of the View.  No wonder people are as stupid as they are.

Speaking of Michael, guess where I am, the middle of the area declared a state of emergency. Guess will find out. Btw looked at 9 homes and putting a bid on one.

Maybe you should wait a tad before you make offers? :D
