I keep trying to get Bruce to play a game of battleship...


played it with others a few times and it's been fun shooting each time.
(grids are 1" squares...put the target out to 10-15 yds)

Quite the nice range...
They have four "regular" lanes and 4 "Tactical" lanes. The Tactical lanes use this XWT touch panel to control the target.



Pretty nice to just enter the distance in feet you want the target and away it goes. One button return as well

But it appears the controller has a few other choice functions like rotating the target up to 360 degrees and interval timing..
info here

Still looking for an operations manual so we can do some of the neat stuff next time we go there...
(update - since I can't seem to find anything other than advertising online, I emailed the OEM for instructions)

FTR...Blaster sank my battleship

Had a good time today getting my groove back on, the skaters tape and modified grip seems to be working better...another 1000rds and I will know for sure. You can shoot .223 there as well.

In honor of our Colorado contingent (e.g. Blastoff Adventures West) which is growing again shortly, I've decided to post up odd news stories about CO.

Colorado pot market exceeds tax hopes

Quote:
The governor predicted sales and excise taxes next fiscal year would produce some $98 million, well above a $70 million annual estimate given to voters when they approved the pot taxes last year.

..proposal outlines plans to spend some $99 million next fiscal year on substance abuse prevention, youth marijuana use prevention and other priorities
So, is it actually costing the tax payers a $1M to legalize pot?

Even more if you count the cost of dealing with crime from pissed off drug cartels.

Not necessarily true. You would have to take into account how much they spent a year on "substance abuse prevention, youth marijuana use prevention and other priorities" prior to legalization.

Have they offered you a designated parking spot with a sign that reads" Warlord 1"?

Unfortunately, I have between a 1/4 and 1/2 mile walk from the parking lot to my office, depending on what time I show up.
