Great day at the range, weather was nice and the old guy that nobody likes only stayed a few minutes!!


One of the negatives of this range is that you must shoot 100yards on the 100yard part of the range for 50yards or less you must move over to the 50 yard section. It's for safety, so I understand but it still sucks to have to shoot the 50 then move all your stuff over. I decided I would make the most of it and sight in a few pistol while I was at the short range, so at least I was getting more done before moving.




I decided to try a couple iron sight categories this month and was pleasantly surprised with the results. I also decided to try a couple different rifles for the optics categories.


#4- Rimfire or Centerfire, 50 yards, 3 shots, iron sights or non magnified optic. Group .3125" + .5625" farthest from center= .875" Total score. Shot with M1 Garand, Federal 150grain M1 30-06 ammo.








#5- Rimfire or Centerfire, 50 yards, 3 shots, magnified optics. Group .4375" + .3125" farthest from center = .75" total score. Shot with Remington 597, 3-9x32 scope, CCI green tag ammo.








#6- Rimfire or Centerfire, 100 yards, 3 shots, iron sights or non magnified optic. Group .5" + .875" farthest from center = 1.375" total score. Shot with Smith & Wesson M&P 15 with EoTech 553 red dot sight, Federal American Eagle 50grain Varmint tip .223.








#7- Rimfire or Centerfire, 100 yards, 3 shots, magnified optics. Group .6875" + .5625" farthest from center = 1.25" total score. Shot with Springfield M1A, Sightron 4-16x42 scope, Federal M1A 168grain OTM ammo.








Maybe next time I will man up and try some of the standing categories.

OK OK....I stopped shooting compettively for a while. (Ha. Can't spell it. Hope I can shoot it. 8)
I can't stand it. I'm gonna start again. I want to try my M1 carbine, open sights. :)

I hope to get a target in soon.

I've been distracted too for the last two months. House repairs (3 times), kid's birthday, etc., etc.

Next month! There's always next month! :)

I did it all with the 702! I've been finding some 22LR recently and bought some match ammo that I was prepared to break out but things were going well from the start. I'd shot at the club before and having more time and many fewer people (Monday afternoon, great weather!), rules etc. is great.

Been loading a lot of pistol rounds lately so 223 was low. I grabbed a fistful of 22 for the rifle stages. I also built 2 new rests. I always used what Henges supplied. Mine have varying heights and are wood with gun slots drum sanded at sweet spots - flip it over for different heights. There's one in the shot. Bicycle inner tube 'feet' helps them stay put!

There is Main street BBQ nearby (a winner!) AND a good LGS (+sports) where I have scored 4,000 SP primers in 2 stops. Happy-happy! I may go back and shoot the one pistol that I missed right now!!

rcflyer, thanks for posting an entry! That is some impressive Mosin Nagant shooting! :thumb:

I wished I could have joined you to give stallard and mingaa more competition, but it just wasn't meant to be this month.
