22 ammo at Gander on Saturday

I got up a little earlier than I might otherwise have done so and headed over to Gander Mountain. They had 22 ammo advertised. I got there a few minutes before 8:00 am and found the parking lot had a bunch of cars in it already. The door was already open and people were inside in a long line waiting to buy the two boxes of ammo one was allowed.

 They were giving out tickets for the ammo. I got ticket 208. I think ticket 214 was the last one to get any ammo and he only got one box. The store was well organized for the ammo event and despite the long line, it went relatively quickly. No riots or anything.

 The line. I took this picture at 8:10 am according to the file time. Quite a few people had already gotten their two boxes.

The actual goods! 1200 fps, so not exactly standard velocity, but SV seems to be unobtainium these days.

2014-12-06 jensen forest preserve

Wilma and I came here after we went to a couple of spots in Boone County that turned out to be closed for hunting. This is a smallish forest preserve west of Rockton, IL that we have been to several times before.
