Bringing in the New Year with Idaho Style Fireworks (My sons and I)
Youtube ^ | 1 January 2012 | Jeff Head

Posted on 01/02/2012 9:26:38 AM PST by Jeff Head

My sons and I went up into the foothills here in Idaho on New Year's Eve to celebrate the New Year in our own pecular way...with a Savage Firearms .308 hunting rifle (which needed its scope zeroed in) and my FAL .308 and Rueger Mini-14 .223.

Lot's of fun! Click on the pic or link for the video.


Bringing in the New Year with Idaho Fireworks

Hope you enjoy!

KEYWORDS: 2ndamendment; firearms; hehheh; rifles; rkba
We had a lot of fun...nice way to celebrate if you have a mind.

We need to preserve and display the spirit of the 2nd amendment...tom our family, friends, relatives, and neighbors...and particularly so all of these statists and tyrant wanna-bes know that spirit is still strong in the land and ready to fulfill its part in the constitutional scheme of things if ever required.

My sister broke out her Sig Sauer SIG522 at Thanksgiving. Fun little gun.

I’ve spent the morning installing new scopes and moving others around. It’s sunny here, so I’ll go out after a while and sight them in on paper, maybe shoot some cans, varmints and other targets of opportunity.

Looks like a lot of fun Jeff and the scenery is amazing!

But more than anything I'm glad that your health has recovered so that you can get out and get out and enjoy it.

Happy New Year my FRiend.

I can’t tell you how my heart soared to see the video, Jeff! Seeing you up and about and outdoors shooting is the best belated Christmas present I have ever gotten.

Could not shoot off any fireworks here as the police are out in force impeding the shooting off of skyrockets because of fire danger ON THE BEACH! Yup, you got it, on the beach. God help us if we are not all saved from ourselves by some level of government.

So, on New Years Day went off to the local range and fired off some hardware: 300 win mag; 308 AR; 556AR; and 40sandW.

All in all not a bad way to start the New Year!

Happy New Year to All!

Thanks guys. The Lrod has been gopd to me...beyond my hopes and expectations.

In April, it will be two years sine those massive surgeries, rebuild, hospitlization and rehab...those seven months down in Houston.

But with a lot of faith, prayers, love, and watch care...and the will of a loving Father and His Son, I’ve been preserved thus far and every day is a gift.

I’ll never be back to where I was physically...but I am where the Lord wants me now and will make the best of it. Thanks again to all for their prayers and faith!

...and the shooting sure was fun.

Yep...mine was a lot due to the instability I still have as a result of nerve damage to feet and legs resulting from cutting the entire sacrum out...nerve roots and all.

Told my boys there how the quick four shots there at the end were pushing me back...but if you watch the kickup on the rocks...I held on target pretty well. There’s a small target down near the lower portion of the rocks I was trying to pepper a bit.

Thank you my FRiend...but trudging the hills is a little beyond me. I can get my pickup up there and then walk around in those not too inclined areas like where we were shooting from.

Heading up the side hill would have been a much longer and more difficult task. But I am very happy to be able to do as much as I can!.

I suppose if it came down to it, I’d be the guy holding the line while everyone else made tracks out, LOL!

I'd be there with ya' for the same reason.

I REALLY miss cuttin' firewood with my boys out in the woods.

Hell ... usein' a chain saw for any longer than 15 minutes demands a sitdown to let the hotpain go away ... then I'm good for another 15 ... etc.

The FAL is the favorite rifle I won. Best coyote and would-be wolf gun I can imagine.

I've been looking though at Robinson Arms XCR...they make awesome semi-autos with high grade replacable barrels. I want one in .223 and .308...basically two high grade weapons in one.

Thanks for sharing. It looks like you had a lot of fun!

Hubby and I went to the range last Friday. Boy was it crowded! It is getting increasingly harder to get on the range in a decent amount of time (some had to wait almost 2 hours to shoot on the pistol range). Mind you, this was an indoor range but our outdoor range is just as hard to get on if you don't get there before 9:30 - 10:00 am.

I take this as a good sign! :)

2011 was the biggest year for gun sales in history.

A sure fired message to all statists and tyrant wanna-bes.

Great video Jeff, looks like it was a lot of fun indeed.

How long have you had your FAL and how do you like it?

Do you guys reload your own ammo?

P.S. I must have missed the part of the video/post about how many of those targets you hit! LOL

Happy New Year!

I live near Ft. Hood. For the Fourth of July fireworks were banned in most Texas counties, all of them anywhere nearby due to extreme drought. December saw quite a bit of rain, and since Texas allows fireworks sales for New Years, there were lots of fireworks here, despite them being illegl in most cities. (I live in such a city). But while saw lots of fireworks, I saw no flashing lights and heard no sirens.

I will admit, it was a bit odd watching fireworks with a cold wind in my face, since where I’m from there are no fireworks sales for New Years. (Not that you don’t here a few there anyway).

Love the FAL. Have had it since 1991...so over 20 years now.

I used to load my own but asold all the stuff about 12 years ago.

We hit all of the targets. I was able to hit mine with the open sights of the FAL. The boys plugged all the others with the Savage, though I believe Jeff also got one open sighted with the Mini-14.

We will do things sometimes like two of us taking up different, spread positions, point out where potential belligerents are, and then work at providing covering/supressing fire to keep them down whil others work at flanking manuevers.

Thanks amom! And God bless you and so many others for your faith and prayers on behalf of me and my family!

Words are inadequate...all we can do is our best to help others in need whenever and wherever we can to pass on the blessing.

May He return it to you and yours 10 fold!

Oh, by the way, the shooting was a real blast (so to speak), me and my sons had a lot of fun.

When I lived in Texas, near Ft Worth, in the 90’s, I used to set off rockets whenever the Cowboys scored...no one bothered me and most of my neighbors were supportive with cheers.

St Augustine used to have a very liberal policy about fireworks on the beach till about two years ago when they said they would “crack down” meaning you got a ticket or got hauled away. The last two 4ths were very mundane.

I am tired of the government leading my life for me from toilets to electric bulbs to fireworks to MPGs on cars. Funny, wherever I look at the constitution, I fail to see anything that promotes this level of oversight. In fact, unless it specifically says you can do it now, there is a law that says you cannot, not the other way around.

O turd told us before he took office the constitution needed to say what the government can do for you rather than having what the government cannot do to you. I guess that is one promise he has kept. Of course, he is not alone, the RINOs and squishes seem to favor the big government approach and if one does not believe that, just look at what the GOP is set to run as its candidate.
