Sorry I have been gone so long. I have been playing with handguns lately but finally took my Savage 308 to the range. I didn't have access to the 100 yard ranges so I squeezed in between tables and used an 80 + yard range for today's shoot.

The target with 4 down near the bottom is an 8" target. The other one is a 3" of the corner targets. I count 11 + 4 on the big target. I can't count the number on the small one but I believe both targets were 15 shot strings.

The rifle is my new Savage Model 11 V/T in .308.

Thanks lingr. I had some problems after I came back from Texas but managed to find work. Now I am fighting the diabetes bs and my medicine is not doin its job. Doc upped my pill doses but I may have to go on a shot plus pills. BUT I was told there is a med out that lowers the glucose, is not insulin, is ok by the DOT and if I get on that shot I will not lose my CDL.

God is good...I been stressin and sweating and fearing I would be out of work again. But...maybe the wind is blowin in my direction for a change.

It was good to finally get out. It has been a hard winter.
They just put me on Bydureon Hombre. Don't be afraid of insulin if you need it. The job it does normalizing your life really is worth it. You can get a Pen know that doesn't need refrigarated. I'm on Pills, have an insulin pump and the Bydureon is a once a week shot! I attribute 2/3 of it to my stress at work but what do ya do? Go on welfare? I thiink not..Keep you head up bro!
Hey Dutch,
Got some pretty good news from the doc. After I got my blood draws they found my glucose level out of control. Doc upped my doses and then got me enrolled in a TeleHealth program. The program helps me keep a closer track of my BG. I have to stick my fingers more but that's no biggie. The problem is that if i go on insulin I lose my CDL and my job.

But the good news is that there is some kind of shot that lowers blood sugars, can be taken once a day and is not insulin. Therefore I can keep my CDL. The stuff actually helps with weight loss too, while Metformin and the other meds I am on cause weight gain.

If I can lower my sugar, and if this helps me lose weight, I will need a smaller dose, and if I lose enough weight, my system will need way less insulin so it should all work out to help me get healthier again. I am so tired of being tired. Losing weight will be the key IMHO.

Thanks for the encouragement. I appreciate it.
No problem Hombre! You stick with the doctor's advice and I am sure you will work this all out. I guess at least they know alot about Diabetes and the other problems it brings so it really is very treatable..I didn't realize a guy can lose the CDL for being on insulin?? Seems really out of line to me..but then..what do i know!! HAHA!! Be safe and good luck with your health!
