    During the process of my sons (one who has earned the nickname now of "Paul Bunyan" for the way he tosses trees around) chainsawing our way to the top of the property I noticed several times that erosion had taken its toll on the long gravel drive leading up the top of the mountain where the property line ends. On the return trip back down the mountain to the gorgeous spot that we would spend the rest of the day shooting, the driveway gave way and the truck started its descent into the canyon below us!! Thankfully a tree was there to catch us!! Quick thinking along with some hard work, a huge tree, cables, a farm jack and a motorcycle tie down that assisted my sons in rescuing us so we didn't have to spend the night in survival mode!!

    Oh yeah,,, I'm a star all right,,, a very dim one of the sort that twinkles on and off in the night sky amoungst all those bright shiny ones in a night sky full of shiners but a star none the less ! Thanks for the Kretzy!
    Speaking of stars,,, yeppers,, old Pucster and company did indeed invade Commieland with all sorts of amazing (but 100% CommieFornia approved) shooters and we did manage to get the folks who wear the Star called on us for tossing lead. They were just checking up on us though to ensure we were valid. Come to find out, even in that far off land where high cap magazines are a no no, the 2nd Amendment of our great Constitutional Republic still stands firm. Being from a State where the sounds and smells of tossing lead is a daily occurrence on the Federal and State properties that "we the people" still own and have claim to, I think more of the silence in the Sierra Nevada's needs to be broken by the beautiful sounds of 22lr's, 9mm's, 45's (both long colts and acp's) and the mighty 308's flowing gracefully toward their targets as soon to be seen in upcoming Puc Video's ..

    Well,, ammo casings are not exactly made of gold by they do have a golden look to them and they are a treasure to a geezer going shooting with his son's!! Speaking of treasures, make sure you check out the Humming Birds at the end of this video. We have Humming Birds back in Michigan but NOTHING even close to the size of these creatures = they were HUGE!!

    Hero's,, that's what them boys of mine are = HERO's!! I have spent my share of overnighters in the woods because of being stranded or lost (even had to hike over 20 miles at night once in the Paiute Mountains due to a KTM 400 tossing its counterbalance shaft) but that was back when I was a youngen. Thankfully, this part of our adventure ended with us escaping what could have been a disaster. Those California Mountain canyons are deep and can swallow a vehicle with out so much as a burp,, not this time though,, not this time!!

And... what the 'H' they were doing to get it stuck off the trail to begin with?? Now Puc was that your rig or were you just out making friends again... :-)

    It was my Son-In-Laws rig up on his property in the Sierra Nevada's. The "driveway" going up to the top of the mountain/south border of his land had suffered a lot of erosion and wind damage over the winter/spring months but he still wanted me to see the view from the top so off we went = cutting downed trees and working our way up to there closer to Heaven.. The driveway erosion gave out on that way down and thats how we slid in.. Thats actually not a come-along brother but a "Farm Jack". The boys attached it to the push bar on the front of the truck with cables and attached the cables to a big tree at an angle to try and give the front end a fighting chance of not sliding any farther into the canyon before backing it out.. It all worked great and the old man didnt have to spend a night in the mountains living off burnt squirrel and fighting those youngens for the water supply

    This little pump action WRF 22 reminded me a lot of the shooting gallery 22's of a time long gone bye. Although it was stamped "1890" it's action worked flawlessly after I figured out I had to eject the fired round in its chamber. It was also still very accurate and would still be a good hunting rifle in my opinion although I am not sure how available the Ammo is for such a relic. A very cool little shooter for sure and a real pleasure to shoot!

    Getting to shoot the Springfield SOCOM 16 (Garand/M-14) was also a ton of fun!! Styled after the M1 Garand and chambered in 7.62 Nato, this treasure of a shooting machine was amazing in both its accuracy and its function. The SOCOM comes ported in stock OEM form and it's porting is remarkably functional in its ability to keep this shooter from climbing during rapid fire. All one has to do to stay on target while shooting a fast semi-auto shoot with this one is focus on correcting its creep to the right (at least that was my experience).. What a fun day!!

    We have belonged to a family oriented motorcycle club named VentureRider.org now for many years. Having met some of the most awesome, friendliest lop eared varmints in the world thru our club, I thought christening Trooper into the club at some of America's most gorgeous (pun intended) touring areas known to man, The Flaming Gorge, would be excellent - so we did! A special thanks to the founder of our club = "Freebird", for his dedication to making the club what is today! I also pay homage to our local Hyundai dealership and the Sales Manager there who provided Trooper with his awesome nameplate. Another special thanks to Robb (Sales Manager) and the other staff at Betten Baker Hyundai for going out of their way to provide such amazing service to their customers in this episode!!

    ,, = actually it all began the day we ordered Trooper brother,, shoulda seen the look on Robb's (Sales Manager at the new car dealership where we purchased Trooper) face when I told him the only way I would hand him the cash was if I could get Trooper undetailed with ALL of his original stickers intact and in place.. He was , ,, about trying to figure out what that was all about until I took Tweeks down to the dealership to show him... Then was = .. Took some doings on his part with the higher ups to get it all approved but he did and thusly,, Trooper's take over of the circle of sticker life began
