Sunday it is.  Rifle side.  Late morning.

Heading out now!  Should be there about 9:45.  Look for the ponytail and USGI guns.

Bench #53

Windy and overcast.
I think, therefore I am armed.

I got to shoot a couple Sharps rifles in 45-70 and 45-90. I shot a few different Mausers in different calibers ranging from 6.5mm to 11mm and from numerous countries of manufacture. I also got to shoot an Arisaka along with numerous muzzle loading rifles and pistols. Someone there had a pepperbox. There was an AR in 300BLK a 308 bolt action and a .17HMR. All this plus a couple of early 1900's .22 target rifles. A great collection of old and reproductions made for a great day today.

some people got lost on the way to the range...
http://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/story/26421105/firefighters-rescue-hikers-from-koko-head

I wonder who the 2 women who "got stuck" are?

Also, what does "got stuck" mean?  Maybe we need HNN writers with a slightly more developed English vocabulary? 

Were they unable to climb back out? 

Were they too frightened of falling to attempt climbing up? 

Were they terrified of the bullets they heard whizzing by their heads?   :shake:

"Got stuck" is a result.  I'd really be interested in the cause.    :popcorn:

What HNN needs are "writers" maybe even "journalists", you know, people that investigate and report news. That blurb barely qualifies as a "tweet".

I'm sure if they had heard "bullets whizzing over there heads" we would have been treated to an in-depth analysis of everything that is "wrong" about KHSC, and what they feel should be done about it.

The cause? More than likely plain old base stupidity. It's more common than common sense nowadays.

I am curious about something. I have personally seen 5 rescues while at the range. The first 4 they stopped all shooting during the rescues. The last 1 they did not stop the shooting. Are they supposed to stop?
