Hi Ernie, Well since we have it all planned out, lets do it. I'll leave my wallet in the pickup. Those cobwebs might start to weigh heavy on my shirt pocket. I will bring the Blunt A target (100-300 yards) and the three Blunt skirmish targets. We can make as many of these as we need. I had a set of templates made by a guy with a plasma cutter run by a computer, so they are exactly to scale. I just trace them out on 1/4" plywood and cut them out with a sabre saw. I also made a trammel to create the ellipses on the A target. My first one of those was put on a sheet of Celotex. I won't do that again. It took three coats of Kilz to turn that black to white. So next time I suppose I will use 1/4" plywood. Besides, that Celotex gets nasty to handle when it gets hot and starts bleeding tar. I would like to see your presentation rifles. I just bring my run of the mill '84. Regards, Ken
