food for thought if you haven't tested your set up.
I actually don't like any of that junk up on the top rail. It's actually just that. Junk. Some cheap sight someone got on ebay or something. I'm getting a red dot holo and a slide to the side magnifier for it. I"ll probably dump the light and laser all together.

Was gonna shoot it this evening, but a storm popped up, and the winds got a little crazy, so we won't be doing that today.

Just saw where a 36 year old white male was killed in a motorcycle accident at Beasley/Adkins exit tonight.

My mom just texted me the same thing. Prayers for the rider's family.

The rider's name was Mark Bissell. Turns out he was a friend of a good friend of mine.

dirty ride saturday ?

Some of us are going to ride some dirt and gravel this Saturday. Yall come and join us for some mild to moderate dirt and some fast gravel roads. We will leave from our camp area by the creek at rigby farms around 0900 so be there and ready by then. We'll have lunch out on the road somewhere and back sometime hopefully before late.

I've ridden up that stretch of 74 up toward Murphy and Andrews before. Definitely NOT the best road in the area. Unless you like flat, 4-lane, local traffic filled with tweakers etc...

Yeah last time we went up there it was so foggy on that strech we could only see about 30 yards. But came back down it as well. Its really flat.
