Yea I'll make it. Wife won't be happy about me missing church thought. On the other hand I'll go to her family reunion on Sat so that should win some brownie points with her. Now the Lord may be a bit more hard nosed. :thinking:

X-Ring,
Did you get my reg. I emailed you the other night? Baron Graham and Robert McMichael. I hope to see ya’ll Sunday!
I’ve been practicing this belly shooting! My Dasher will not be here until Monday of next week, so I’ll be shooting a .300 ATLAS. The rifle shoots well from the ground, but the recoil has a bit of bite! I am going to the local Gunsmith’s this afternoon and I am going to look and see if I can come up with some sort of recoil pad!

X-Ring,
Thanks for the compliment on the LG. I did find a slip on recoil pad today for it. I just calculated the recoil energy at 19.45 lbs. with out the muzzle brake. I look forward to shooting with you guys.
Tony
