We finally made it to the range two weekends in a row. My son turned 18 in February and of course he had to purchase a gun, just because he could. He didn't have much money so he bought a Hi-Point rifle. He already has a couple of shotguns and a .22 so he thought 9mm would be a nice change. It took this long to find a weekend where there wasn't a foot of snow on the range and of course it's back, we got four inches this week. :-(
I was impressed for such a cheap piece of hardware, it shot flawlessly. It is crudely manufactured but hey, you can always sand off the rough edges. The point is, it goes bang and does it pretty accurately which I guess is all you really need in a firearm.
While at home unloading the car I got my annual bombing from above. Yes, a robin perched in a tree above my car made sure that when he took a crap he did it right over me and hit my arm. The accuracy of the robin must not be that good because Seagulls always manage to hit me square in the head. I'm not sure what I've done to the bird population in general but they sure have it out for me. It seems like every year I get crapped on but it came early this year. I sure hope it's not a sign of things to come..
