We had some moving target practice on Saturday night. A horde of raccoons and a couple of possums decided to snoop around the chicken coop. So the Father in Law and I went out to resolve their lead deficiency. FIL with double 20 improved cyl/mod, me with the .22 semi. We got 3 racoons and 2 possums in 15 minutes. I guess i use we generously. Father-In-law got 1 racoon, 1 barn wall, 1 barn window, nearly got the domestic rabbit through said window and 1 rain barrel. I am now glad i switched him over from lead to steel 'cause with his random shooting, he put little #4 pellets every freaking where. This is after we had spent the last 5 month doing shooting drills, homestead shooting lane, target identification, when to shoot, when not to shoot, checking your downrange, shooting lanes, did i fail to mention when to shoot and not to shoot and watching your down range? Last year before we had built a few structures i decided he needed some 'training' so we did about 250rd live fire and vermin control. So i figured he was good to go. Erm, No. Back to shoot and keep shooting. OMG i was scared. I asked him wth he was thinking! We had flood lights lighting up the yard like a foot ball stadium. Obviously you can not teach an old dog new tricks. He's being demoted. I've decided that if the SHTF he's on point cause i don't want anyone in front of him, He get early morning watch 5am - on (early to bed early to rise), or during an all out fire fight, either reload duty or he is only allowed to cover the driveway and I'm putting in steel plates around the rest of the family. I'd feel safer if he had some blanks. This is going to be a long summer of retraining. So much for ROTC he had back in the day (me thinks he is embellishing jsut a bit). I really don't want him buying an SKS anytime soon. Heaven help us.
