A chilly start to the day brought out 28 shooters for the Territorial Marshal's Christmas shoot.
Four stages trying to keep hands warm and working but the sun was shining and the breeze was light so you can't complain!
Jack decided he would try a 'mixed bag' of fun, testing his black powder loads and pistols, one of his Rugers, the .22 rifle (she says rolling her eyes) and his shotgun. Pity Santa hadn't been paying attention to which guns he packed in and put both of my pistols in the bag!!! Lol!
Jack had a ball with his mixed up shooting and I had a pretty good run. Plenty of laughs in any case.
More turned up for the Christmas party with a great dinner by John Elder's crew and restaurant. With tables cleared and a table full of gifts the 'dirty Santa' games began! Christmas gifts taken, stolen and everyone went away pretty happy with whatever they were gifted. I'm still in shock and awe that the quietest man on the range, Captain Lee, is actually funny and did a short magic medicine show. The 'Dad' jokes were abundant! Lol!
Tomorrow it's Wild Bunch and looking forward to 5 stages and a gathering of great cowboy's for more Christmas shooting fun.
…targets ring, are you listening, ……the brass, it is glistening, ……a beautiful sight, a shooters delight, walking down the marshal's cowboy range….. (And if you didn't sing that to Winter Wonderland then there is something wrong with you 🙂 haa haa haa)
An early Merry Christmas from Jack and I, may all your days be merry and bright!
