The damage should buff right out.
Other things I learned. Tannerite is fun, but a 2.5x scope on a Garand and a marginal shooter isn't going to beat the the guys with better optics, better skilles, and ARs. But I am sneaky. I noted a charge fell to the ground and no one noticed the little corner sticking up in the grass. Then, borrow an AR with said optics and polish it off when everyone thinks the fun is over. Attention to detail wins the race.
Old NFO's SCAR with an ACOG is about the funnest shooting modern rifle I've ever had the privilege of shooting.
Newbius had a Drilling from Deutschland, pre-WWII. Pretty. Two 16 gauge and a single 9.3x74mmR, exposed hammers. I only shot the rifle part twice. The second time utilizing the double set trigger. Oh. My. That's a nice trigger. Best I've ever shot. If you think real hard it will go.
MBtGE's CX4 storm carbine with EOTech sight was the belle of the ball, I think. It's like .40 shooting on Easy mode.
Bubblehead Les had a Sten. Danged uncomfortable to shoot and persnickety to run. There is no place to grip with your shooting hand. The mag, in place, made it hard to work the bolt. If I were a Tommy I'd snatch up an MP40 in battle the first time one came available.
Breda didn't shoot me this year, and for that I thank her. I did get a pellet bounce back from the Drilling. Bird shot bouncing off a car can do that. It didn't penetrate the t-shirt, but if it hit an eye without protective goggles that would be bad. Eyes and ears, people.
Her Bersa didn't hurt as much this year. Maybe the new Crimson Trace grips?
3 inch 12 gauge shells out of a bolt action shotgun DO hurt. That'll wake you up in the morning.
Mom Fallacy had her little Beretta .22. That was a sweet shooter, thought the grip was shaped for right handers.
Many thanks to Breda for calling in her Posse to all come and have fun, to Heath and Amanda for having a place to eat and drink and nearby relatives to acres to shoot on, and Newbius for making a LOT of pizzas that were the best I've ever had out of a home oven.
Traffic coming home was GAWDawful, what with the Monsoon rains and the aforementioned 36 mile back up on the PA Turnpike. I usually get sleepy on long drives and struggle to stay away. When you are worried about dying on the rain slick roads that keeps you alert, I tell ya. The guy on the motorcycle, I felt real bad for him.
