Just teasing some guys on another forum, but I wanted to do some shooting today with my new Hawken.

Only problem.... Its 1* but no wind at all. About the only thing that felt the cold was my face and my exposed hand that I used to operate the button.

Now of course, the guys on the other forum will be told that they are couch potatoes and afraid of their plastic stocks freezing and cracking in the cold Laughing

Pic looks like a long, crooked, pointed upward bayonet on the end of your ML.

Glad to see you ditched the shades. Now get them out of your coat pocket too... Smile

Wait!!..... a hunting coat with no pockets? Is there at least one on that jacket?

REAL mountain men never wore shades.  But, alas, Colorado has been invaded by west coasties.  Totally different influence affecting even the most fastidius types like Jon. Who, by the way, looks just like Bryan Keith's character.  Ha!
