I was using my brand new Chrony for only the second time today. It was cold and it was windy but I was having a bad bout of cabin fever. I thought it would be a good idea to go out for a short time and check my recently loaded 10mm rounds. Here's how it went. The chrony wouldn't fit the threaded screw on my tripod so I used a couple of cable ties to hold it down. As I was adjusting the legs I tipped it sideways and it slid off and landed upside down in the snow. Back to the shop to dry it out. With that done I went back and continued setting it up. That's when I realized one of the rod ends was missing. Well after five minutes of kicking snow I was back to the shop to get the metal detector. I found the rod right under my tripod. Finally! I was setup and ready to shoot. I decided to start out with my G22C. That damned barrel puts out so much smoke when shooting lead that I had to keep backing away from the chrony to get a reading. By now my eyes were watering from the cold and the wind was shaking my arms when in my shooting stance. I'll bet you can guess the rest. Yep, my second shot hit a rod. After finding it in the snow and straightening out as best I could I felt pretty good. I thought well I got that out of my system, it could never happen again. My next shot, SNAP. There went another one flying. Again I tried to straighten the rod. I am a persistent SOB. I wasn't going to let mother nature and this thing get the best of me. I ended up getting off five good shots and recording the data. OK it was time for the Glock 20sf. It just wasn't my day. The first shot went wide and hit a rod for the third time!!! That was enough for today.....Anyone want to buy a lightly used chrony? These Glocks just don’t shoot straight.
