Andechs is where the Neuschwanstein Owner walked into the local lake and never went back. I´m not a fan of Neuschwanstein cause it´s pretty new(build a few years before WW1) time of the last kings etc.

Here some more, one with zoom and one to Close !!!

Sorry i have not read well !
To rent you just Need to be older than 18 years. To get your own you Need a (WBK) license, to get her you must be member over a year and shot more than 12-14 times a year. With parents you can shot with 14 years of Age. This is all i know so far from german weapon law i don´t Need to know more as rental rifle user !!!

Here pics from my boat trip which was free for me. The captain got an easy Job !

$3k ouch! Prob makes sense to rent if it isn't a heavy passion hobby.

To rent do you need any special license like to buy?

Vid. from yesterday we had pretty warm weather:

1st time after ... shooting part III

I shoot a Beretta Gold Edition... a Rental Rifle(Price Level new 3k €´s) but i think CZ is well too. Most important i think is a right fit in the shoulder and good spot to lean head against. I like the style of Shooting, be quick but cool enough to don´t get in Panic !

Have a good start !!!

I like Tippmann !!!

A skeet rifle build would be cool !?!?!?

Oh man I love trap/skeet shooting. Recently sold my 870 that I never use, and hopefully one day will pickup an over under, probqbly CZ seeing that I'm turning into a fanboy.

I start my new job on Mon, with a tutoring company I was fired from in January due to not hitting quota. Will return to a non sales role, but will take a hit compensation wise. These good news is I get 52hrs of free tutoring, now I'm deciding how to use them. I would like to at least get my electronics degree and either work on robots or electric vehicles.

I actually passed on the Escape. It was $4500, clean, 60K miles, and had a new hybrid battery.

I just didnt like it. It drove "weird", I couldn't plug in my phone or change the radio (love my casette adapter), and rode like a Conestoga wagon.

Looking at a 2005 Ford Escape Hybrid, 60K miles with a new hybrid battery, asking price of $4500. Looks clean and a good buy.

This would entail selling my beloved 2002 Ford Explorer Sport. The explorer by all means is due for replacement. It has 230K miles, a known bad year for timing chains, and a medium list of broken things on it.

...but, I'm really upset about the Explorer. I love that car. It's sharp looking, two door, body on frame selectable 4WD/RWD, and I've truly beat the thing to death while barely maintaining it. The car has been very good to me and I'm sad to put it on the chopping block.

I still have my first vehicle (93 F150), sold my 65 Mustang, and bought a Harley Sportster.

Look for rust, especially on the rear strut towers.
