    I've been thinking of picking one of those up. I'll happily buy beer at the Vienna Inn after if I might test drive yours. I really want one, but don't want to drop the cash if I haven't been able to shoot one first.

    Official (DTA) SRS, HTI, Covert, Hunter Thread

    I'm thinking about using some of my bonus money to pick up a Covert in 6.5 creedmoor and join the Desert Tech club. Does anyone around Northern Virginia or the surrounding area have one I can test drive? I'm happy to buy beer afterwards.

    I'm out in God-forsaken Ashburn now. There is also Fairfax Rod and Gun Club. They are good folks, have some great facilities, and their matches are fun. You don't have to be a member to shoot in the matches.

    Groundhogging

    Had a beautiful hike in to my shooting spot, but had to beat a hasty retreat when a huge storm rolled in about 45 min after I got into position. No groundhogs, but 45 minutes of hunting beats 0 minutes of hunting.

    Cool pics of cool stuff

    My buddy and I started with a 6 pack of Bell's and ended up making a home made blacksmithing forge. All it took was him muttering the phrase "I bet it would be fun to..."

    That was awesome. My dad used to put Andrea Bocelli or Pavarotti on the CD player every Sunday morning without fail. I didn't appreciate it in high school, but wouldn't you know it, I do the same damn thing now.

    Going unicorn hunting:

    I met my wife, who if not a certifiable unicorn is very close, the first week of Freshman year of college. She dropped her phone, and I picked it up and handed it back to her. That was all it took. No pickup lines, no gimmicks. Just be a gentleman, and be yourself. The rest seems to come...

    Man's Best Friend Thread

    This is Sammy Colt, my wife and I's first dog together. She is 7 months old and toggles between most adorable thing you have every seen, and a little shit who we refer to as the Doof. Any food left out will be gone and any shoes left out will be gummed. She has a taste for fine cheese and gin...

    Danger Close, Virginia Politics Alert
