And so it begins...

52 days from today, in the great state of Ohio, the 2009 - 2010 squirrel season opens. What can I say? I am very very pleased. This week is my first real vacation in more than 6 months and there will definatley be a day at the range in there somewhere... It's prep time. :-)

I have three rifles I will be working up for the season this year. Two are 10/22's, one of which is not ready. I need to assemble it tonight. The other is my one-season-old standby, the OD green / GM aero barrelled / Luepold scoped shooter. The third is something different for me. I decided it's time to branch out a bit and purchased a Marlin 980S. I dropped a scope on it and I think it will be a dandy. I have a couple of sets of qd rings and I am going to test the idea of having two scopes sighted for two radically different loads. The first will be for CCI stingers. I love Bentz chambers but I will be glad to pack as much as possible into the stock chamber for a change. The other will be for use with Aguila SSS Sniper Subsonic rounds. I am anxious to try them. We'll see how it goes.

I miss being out in the woods. I really enjoy the hot hunting in early September. The only thing that really gets me down is the bug spray. Otherwise, I am all about it. I am hopeful to get some good pics together this week... and Torque, if you are reading, your knife is on my list of stuff for the week off... it'll be in the mail by Friday... ;-)
