200 yards is realistic even in this wind! I just had my first 200 yard session with my Savage Mark2 TR and am happy to report that even with the wind I got on this cowbell pretty quickly. Figure about a foot tall? That's with Aguila SE High Velocity and CCI MiniMags. The Aguila isn't great, the MiniMags are the one HV round my rifle likes.

This belongs on a new thread: There's an opportunity to do 50-200 yard rimfire shooting at Koko Head. Who knows the guys who run the show? Carl on the Silhouette side and Mike overall, right?

My 200 yard session was alongside the Big Bore match (3rd Sundays). Are there any events on the Big Bore side on 1st and 2nd Sundays? I don't believe so, but who knows. I'd chip in for plates and hangers. Set 'em up before the range opens and refresh the paint during the occasional cease fire.

Where else can one shoot 200 yards?
Love shooting steel. Those look like some fun targets.

For public access, if you know folks who are members of SRGC, there’s usual/occasional 200 yard and more opportunities. At least when I was a member a while back.

Have been eyeing CZ 457 Varmint and AT One lately. Both for out of box as well as other options.

Not much stock locally on 22 rifles, so been surfing online. There are a decent amount available online.

So, there were safety issues on the set that many of the crew reported.

Lots of people walked away from the set because of safety concerns.

Other crew members were brought in to fill in for the walk-out.

I wonder if one of the disgruntled crew caused the gun to be loaded incorrectly as revenge or to make a point about lax safety.

Hmmmm ......   :shake:

NY Post article indicates that Baldwin should be very worried, as he was the executive producer of the movie.

https://nypost.com/2021/10/23/alec-baldwin-could-face-liability-in-shooting-of-halyna-hutchins-legal-experts/

"New Mexico criminal attorney Erlinda Johnson, a former state and federal prosecutor said the “Beetlejuice” actor could face possible criminal liability for involuntary manslaughter."

If the movie were made in Hawaii, then I guarantee you that the attorney general of this state would have requested the police to take Baldwin into custody and charge him with negligent homicide. He needs an attorney with the stature of Kevin O'Grady. All of the lawyers Baldwin has on speed-dial are not going to do him any good unless they are licensed to practice in New Mexico.

I don't believe he will be prosecuted for anything. This guy was the poster boy for everything anti-Trump. If this happened in Hawaii it would've been swept under the carpet.

A journalist found a problem with a Missouri State website.

He pressed the "View Source" feature on his browser, and noticed the actual social security numbers of all teachers in the state were embedded in the source.

He then notified the state's offices involved with the site as well as the governor's office.  He said the paper he worked for would delay publishing the story until the state has fixed the problem.

After the  site was fixed, and the story was published, the governor is now pushing to have the reporter charged for "hacking" the website!  The governor also says the "fix" CAUSED by the hacker will cost the state $50M.   :wtf:

This man is a Governor?  I guess he's no better or worse than the Resident in the White House.
