Well, I broke out my smoke pole this afternoon. I haven't fired it for two years, the barrel was a lil dry. First shot hit high right, no problem, it got oil in the barrel. Next three shots were high and left, but it was a pattern. Three touching. Then I remembered I use the sights differently on a rifle then I do on a pistol. So after I got used to it, I seen I needed to go one click right. So I did and that gave me the fifth shot dead center. I'm ready.
