So we went out to the rifle range at PA State Game Lands 211 so that I could shoot for the first time and try out a few different rifles. I was using a Remington 700 BDL, .243 and a Winchester Model 70, .270. John brought out his Savage 99, .308. By the end of the trip, I fired 19 rounds, never missed the target and was never more than a centimeter outside the black. Not too bad for my first time. My shoulder was aching. I earned a trip for ice cream when I put two shots right next to each other with the .270. It was a whole lot of fun and I can't wait to do it again. And, of course, I can't wait to go hunting.
