Overheard at the range...

Arriving at the range on the morning of the second day of shooting, MattG, OldNFO, aepilot Jim, and I stopped up at the car on the long rifle range to inspect the damage inflicted on the previous day. OldNFO started to pop the hood latch...
ON: "Hang on, I just want to see what happened under here..." *raises hood*

Me: (in good ol' mechanic drawl) "Well there's your problem. Motor's got holes all in it."
(Actually, it didn't. Until later that day.)

I was surprised that it hadn't; it had certainly been shot at by that point. 1981 Mercuries are hard to kill.

Yep, apparently there were a couple of rather LARGE holes in it later... Enjoy the shooting, and it was good to see you again!

.50 BMG rounds zip right through the ole block.
