This past Saturday, I got together with some good friends and spent a few hours shooting clay pigeons. We had a nice collection of shotguns: from vintage models to state-of-the-art; from 20ga to 12ga.
I took two vintage shotguns that have been in my family for a very long time. My grandfather’s 16 gauge double-barrel and my Dad’s 12 gauge pump. About 35 years ago (damn that’s a long time) I took it upon myself to dismantle the stock and fore-end and sand it down. At the time, I had a distant relative that owned a wood-shop, and he showed me what to do. Three and a half decades later, the gun still looks great.
Today’s featured image was taken by a drone. My friend Doc has an awesome drone: the drone has its own remote control unit including a mount for an iPhone, self compensates, is GPS aware, the works. As the drone flies, video is transmitted and one can see images real-time on the iPhone. Very impressive stuff. Oh and if you look close enough, that is me next to the open door on the red Chevy pickup.
I have great respect for our 2nd Amendment and this past Saturday I was reminded yet again of how precious this right really is…
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
