It was time to break up practice. That meant, morning dots and the afternoon 3D. I’ve been shooting a lot of dots. The difference between dots and 3D is like bicycle road racing compared to mountain bike racing. Or running on the streets versus trail running. Either way it is all fun.
The break was refreshing and will gradually work into a spring training program. The old 3D targets on my range are really beginning to need replacing. There’s this old coyote that gets shot on his hind end because the original chest area is completely split. His days of repair are long gone.
There’s a trail camera on the range. It is on a line with this javelina. This little tayassu tajacuis set so that it can be shot out to around 45 yards. You know that varmint will show up at all your 3D competitions in 2019 setting at your maximum distance. Count on it.
Anyway, this camera snapped a picture or two of me as I was working back to take aim on the javelina at 75 yards (no I think it was 37 yards.)
I’d ordered some work pants off of Amazon. They seemed fine to me. They felt durable enough. Naturally, they were too long so I had them hemmed. After bringing the home I wore them the next day. Everything seemed fine to me. Then, Brenda, my wife looked at me wearing those new work pants.
I didn’t see anything amiss. Belt was on, no tags left on the pants, both legs matched in length, and the zipper was in proper placement. I’d not sat in anything nasty or unknowingly ripped the seat. What could be so funny?
Brenda finally pointed out that it looked line my legs were in tubes. Whatever did that mean?
The trail camera on the 3D range – well, now I know. Yes, these are some dumb looking pants. I am embarrassed to admit, I’ve worn them in public.
