"Model and S/N: Browning Hi-Power 9mm with adjustable rear sights, S/N 245NX*****, wood grip panels, “Made in Belgium, Assembled in Portugal” on slide
Condition: Excellent. Cleaned after every use, finish is excellent. I can honestly rate this as “Like New in Box” in terms of cosmetics. Mechanically perfect.
Round count: 750 (est.) I am the second owner, and I don't think the woman who owned it before me put more than a box of ammo through it. I've only used WWB 115 FMJ for shooting, and never had a misfire or jam. I’ve had a few range sessions with it, and two fun shoots.
Included: Original box with matching end label, manual, two factory 13-round magazines, and a set of Pachmayr grips in their original box.
Asking price: $650. Cash only, no trades. I’ll include the FFL transfer fees and background check in this price, at my FFL in Red Lion.
If you know anyone who's interested, feel free to pass on the information. My phone is 717-741-0166, if someone wants to call me with any questions."

The pistol committee wil be running "Ike's shooting gallery" on Saturday from 10:00am until 5:00pm and on Sunday from 10:00am until 2:00pm. This will entail a range with a wide array of target options where the shooter will pay for their ammunition and under our supervision, using our guns, shoot anything they like. I will need some volunteers to help me run this event. I will schedule the help I have throughout the weekend in an orderly manner. If you would like to help email me and we will discuss the options I have for you.
If you belong to the Izaak Walton you can help your club and have a good time showing others how great our sport is. Non-members may also volunteer.
The three front ranges will be closed from Saturday 9:00am until Sunday 3:00pm for this event.

Sea Lions we saw on our harbor cruise out of Seward. We also saw whales and seals and all kinds of marine life.
Ben and I at Exit Glacier. I cropped out the signs that say not to be where we are. We had to touch it.

I have seen some of their products and they look very nice. Especially their assault rifle cases and long gun cases. When you take the 60% off they are an excellent value.

Can anyone stop Greg J. from winning production? At least beat him on one stage? Am I going to have to dust off my production gear? I'm not sure it would do any good, but I might have to try after I get back from nationals.

This is a grizzly bear sow and cub we saw in Denali. Note that this picture was taken from the safety and comfort of our tour bus a long way away. I was unarmed the whole time we were there. We saw several Grizzlies, several moose, dozens of caribou and Dall sheep, a few golden eagles, a few bald eagles, a humpback wale, several beluga whales, some killer whales, and lots of sea lions and seals. I'll post some of those pictures later.
We sucessfully panned for gold. If you look real carefully you can see some flakes in the top left part of the pan. I think between the four of us we got about $40 worth, so we came home. It's not as easy as it looks in the movies. If we had struck it rich Gary might be your full time match director.

The August 10th match will be 8 stages and around 160 rounds. There will be 4 classifiers. They are 99-02, 99-24, 99-45 and 99-16. The match fee will be $30. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.
After you sign up at firstname.lastname@example.org you will receive a confirmation email within a couple days. If you don't have a confirmation by match day something is wrong.
Also, this will be my last post for several days. I'm taking my family to Alaska for a vacation. I'll post upon my return. If we're lucky maybe Gary will post some while we're gone.
If you need something to read while I'm gone check out the clubs new improved website at www.yorkiwla.org We have a lot more to do at our club than you might realize.
