    Where do you cycle?

    Yesterday we cycled to our summer cabin, which is 23 km from our apartment.

    We took our pneumatic ***** Cometa-50 with us. I placed it in the pannier and fixed it with the elastic cord vertically.

    It was a lot of fun for my son and me to shoot at all those targets on our makeshift range.

    On the way back we cycled in darkness and in heavy chilly rain. But nobody got cold due to the presence of adrenalin. Our precious Spanish ***** was wrapped in plastic.

    It was a good day off. Besides absolutely environment friendly.

    Any other ideas of where one can cycle to?

    Sounds like a good day!

    Just ride - get out and ride some place new is good. Sometimes revisiting and old ride is also good.

    I just warm up for 20 - 30 minutes, see how I feel, and ride for the amount of time I have available. To the west is uphill, to the east down and north and south is rolling terrain.

    I wish I could take the ***** with me on the bike. But local police would think I was a crazy. I bet the cagers would give me lots of space.

    Let them think! As an American you have the right.

    A neighbor of mine's son some years ago wasshooting on the civilian team at Quantico Marine base. He got on his Harley sportser with the M1A on a sling over his back and road rt Va 3 to I95 to Quantico. It may have startled the cops (pnly a little around here) but it was/is legal.

    Also a local black teenager used to take his .22 on his bike and go squreel hunting. Everyone around here knew him as the best worker around if they need to hire some one. No one minded him hunting that way.

    This is the pneumatic ***** 4.5 mm. It is not considered to be a weapon. It is legal to have it.

    I carry it in its original cardboard box, which I also wrap in plastic. It is difficult to say that it is a *****, when you look at it on the bike.

    Exactly. We shot at targets as sport. NOt at animals or birds. The targets were plastic bottles and regular paper shooting targets.

    The shooting from pneumatic ***** does not damage the environment as the chemical guns do.

    This was the point. Shooting from a pneumatic ***** and cycling are equally environment friendly.

    Alexey mentioned a ride with his son combined with another activity that he and his son like to do. I commend that. All sons should be so lucky as to have a parent that spends time with them.

    Good job, Alexey.
