Stopped by Cabela's on my way to Reno. Bought 250 rounds of tracer 22lr for practice at the public range 25 miles from my casino. The pimple-faced cashier asked how it is shooting tracer ammo. Told him I was his age the last time and it was from a machine gun(M-60). I was training then. Also bought 500 rounds of 17HMR plus an extra 5 round magazine for my Savage. It's really accurate. Got my scope set for 50 yards. Maybe I'll set the 22lr for 75-100. Now if I just had a few squirrels to shoot at.

I'll be watching the election results, have some work done on my Toyota, feast and leave the women alone(too expensive). As a gun owner it's safe to say that I want the pro gun party to win even though I'm a Libertarian-a Party that will never win an election.

It's a good time to come up here. There's a 4 star hotel-Atlantis- that had rooms for $17 a nite. It's before the snow arrives and it's sun-thu.

Too bad tracer ammo is illegal in Calif.

At least I can buy it here.

I was in the army Jake, 66 to 69, I never found a use for tracers lol. granted they are kinda cool if pretty colors turn you on. Maybe it is an age thing, but I kinda like seeing what I hit fall over, not watching the bullet trail. which if you have watched tracers is not straight. But to each his own! Ed

or just dont get caught doing it. Cant imagine why they are illegal in california, especially for a 22. But hey, seldom do all laws make sense.

How about huntng/shooting on thanksgiving/christmas day? The game wardens will be off and the snow/cold air won't ignite anything. Gotta give my family a holiday break from me.

Well Thanksgiving is passed. As for the wardens being off they aren't, but why would that matter anyway?

There is no reason to buy or shoot tracers unless you have a juvenile mentality. They were made for machine guns and aircraft guns to see if the gunner was on target. I know they are pretty, especially at night. But they do start fires and have no value to a true hunter. If you want fireworks buy some sparklers and run around the yard, or easier just grow up. My 2 cents, ED
