Well, I made it to Fairbanks yesterday for my Brooks Range sheep hunt with LuJon. Took the rifle to the range today to make sure the airlines hadn't jacked it up too bad. I obviously didn't pack sandbags in my checked luggage, so a laptop case had to suffice as a rest...surprisingly steady actually. Well the first shot was off the paper...interesting. The second shot was off the paper ON THE OTHER SIDE. WHOA! I know I'm not THAT bad at shooting, so I checked the first thing that came to mind, the scope rings. That's when I noticed that one of my Talley Lightweights had snapped! CRAP! So I checked Sportsmans Warehouse and Frontier for rings/bases to no avail. I started to get a bit worried at this point and honestly contemplated buying a new gun. But a phone call to a hole in the wall gunshop in town worked out. I ended up with silver bases on a black gun, which isn't optimal but is completely functional so I won't complain. Took it back to the range real quick and got it re-sighted and good to go. Still have 14 rds of handloads for the hunt. I guess that's why we shoot BEFORE we head to the field!!!!
