- We found out my wife was pregnant and we had our first baby. OK, I could probably stop there since that was such a huge change–it really effected our entire lives. I definitely haven't been shooting as much as I'd like, but it comes at a great trade off.
- I picked up a Savage Weather Warrior 16 FCSS in .308 Winchester with a Nikon Pro Staff 3-9x40 BDC scope. It's a great rifle that I'm still learning to shoot well. I love the stainless finish, AccuTrigger and AccuStock. This is my first bolt-action, so I don't have any other experiences to compare it to. I wonder if the bolt is stiffer than others. I've seen guys cycle some Remington's with just a flick of their wrist and I can't really do that. I might need to work on my technique, but I need to keep it in the context of hunting, since that's what I'm really planning on using the rifle for. I think the trigger is wonderful, and haven't touch the adjustments since I don't want to go with too light of a pull. I've used it for the past two deer seasons. Unfortunately, I haven't harvested anything yet.
- I now have a Benelli Vinci RealTree APG 26" that I used for the turkey season and shooting clays. It's a totally different beast than my Mossberg 590, no surprise there. It's a very smooth autoloader and the only problems I've had were with handloaded shells.
- I started handloading 12 gauge shells with a Lee Load-All II (?) reloader. I've handloaded about 350 shells and love it. It's perfect for me for the amount that I'm shooting. I was surprised how expensive lead shot is, but otherwise am really happy that the whole set up is really saving me some cash.

I can't believe it's been over a year since I've posted. Guess I suck as a blogger. Well I've been busy! (Who hasn't?) Since June of 2009:
I'm sure there's lots more I'm forgetting but I had to try and cover what I could remember so that I can start from somewhere.
