I elected to go ahead and bring it home to try and nurse it back to health since the blow it took wasn't fatal.

SBF,Congrats on your first! You know we all like pics. We can take the shock of bare wires hanging out. :unsure:

It should recover just fine with the use of a little hammer time, but I am likely going to just keep it as a spare. I ordered a Pact that will give me a larger shooting area and keeps all the vital components next to me so that if I do happen to shoot the uprights it will be much easier (and cheaper) to replace.

Not sure. But because the bench was up on a berm of sorts I couldn't set it out any further.

I don't put mine very far out. Just enough to keep the blast from affecting it. Ten feet is usually more than enough for the biggest guns.

You can bet he wasn't checking the muzzle velocity. Those things are hard to hit at 10 feet!!!
