I did, and took a friend from work so that he could sight in his 'huntin' rifle' Had a good time and I think I made another AR15 convert after he put a magazine or two downrange. He had his camera and took a picture of yours truly. Yeah!

Could be... beats me. Elbow down was taught to me in the Army, with no real explaination.

Because I have a tendency to want to do that, bring my elbow up like that, it's rather comfortable to me with my AR. I have a winchester .22 lever action though, that I of course don't shoot like that. I think I do that with the AR because I keep the stock fully collapsed when I shoot, so that makes me want to bring my elbow up.

I was just curious though what the downside is to it. If any.

I thought elbow up was taught to soldiers who used the '03 and the Garand to take the recoil more effeicently...

Elbow down so you don't get stuck in doorways.
Link Posted: 10/15/2004 7:54:26 PM EDT
I can’t speak for cnorton, of course, but obviously you wouldn’t want clear a corner with an appendage leading like that since it would telegraph your position.

Don’t see anything wrong with when just blasting per se, other than developing a very bad tactical habit.

My understanding is that bone-on-bone would be something like the tip of your elbow on the bony part of your knee, where things would tend to wobble around a bit.

Yes. I also qualified four guys at our new indoor range. No members of the hole in the floor, hole in the ceiling club either!!!

I shot yesterday. My 'forgery and a MG42 at Gunstock.

A word of advice. If you like to shoot. NEVER become a gunsmith. All your time is spent working on other peoples toys and the only shooting you get to do is a function fire, Or and occational sight in.

Or a range officer!!

At the end of the day, everyone else goes off to clean their firearms. But that’s not a problem for you since none of yours have been fired!

Shot my muzzleloader about 30 times.

No, all my firearms are back home. The one things I hate about college.

I shot in a pistol match this morning and about froze my taters off.

I'm going to have a go at it tomorrow also.
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 12:52:02 PM EDT

Spent the morning working on the Opsvagen.

Tomorrow. Ops

Yep, my wife and I shot a bunch off the bench and offhand getting ready for deer season. She rocked with her AR--I loaded a bunch of Nosler 60gr Partitions for her. I am going traditional with a Winchester 70 Super Shadow 30/06 with 150gr Sierra SPTs.

Our club had a Turkey Shoot today so went to support that. Aferwards got to break in my new CETME from Knob Creek, compared the shot groups to my AR-10, tried some 9mm sub-sonic out of the Hi Point Carbine (very quiet), and let the boys and girls blast away with the MAC10 both suppressed and unsuppressed. Went through a few hundred rounds today and it was good.
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 3:13:06 PM EDT
2 rounds of skeet. It rained for the second round. That was pretty fun, actually.

I love my Beretta 390.
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 3:18:24 PM EDT
I fired 3 shells out of my new 870. My first time ever shooting 12 gauge. 3 was enough....for today
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 3:18:42 PM EDT
Went to Mayflower, AR and shot about 60 rounds through my Polytech AK and about 150 rounds of .22lr. I would have stayed longer, but my friend needed to go.
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 3:19:50 PM EDT
Yup, shot my Beretta 8000 for my class and during the break shot the boyfriend's SKS. Would have shot the Ar-15, but we ran out of time.

LOL...some chick decided to blame my boyfriend for pushing guns on his "little girlfriend"...like I didn't want to shoot or something. Oh yeah, and she said that guns and relationships don't mix.

She obviously doesn't know a damn thing about me or my boyfriend.
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 3:39:42 PM EDT
I went shootin' today. Burned through about 500 rounds and had a damn good time.
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 3:52:35 PM EDT

Did anyone actually shoot today?

I relaxed this day, I fired only the following quantities:

600 rounds of .45 Super.
180 rounds of 7.62 x 51. (M1A, AWP)
Whimped out on Not shooting my normal routine which would also include the following:
Perhaps age is catching up upon me, pffft, that'll be the day, the weather sucked.

Went to the range yesterday at 4:30 and shot till about 6:30 in the rain...

Went to the same range today, brought some first timers with me... it rained the whole time but was OK...

300 rounds in 2 days, not bad....

- BG

Shot my Swiss K31 today out to 300 m. Took the M1, just didn't feel like uncasing it.
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 4:03:36 PM EDT

I did.

Got my first ragged hole (8 rounds)
with my 20" A2 with irons @ 50yds
BR - I know, know, only 50yd, but
my eyes suck at 100yds.

Tried out some NATO 9mm for my
CZ75B - FTE on my second round.
I love that handgun, but
it will not extract anything other than

Cleaning up my new Enfield #4mk1
for a range trip next week.
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 4:24:06 PM EDT
I just got back from the range about an hour ago. It was raining, but not crowded and we had a blast!

My friend is the ultimate gun nut!

He's the one who talked me into getting a Kimber 45. We shot 100 rounds then moved on to his arsenal.

Glock 19 - 1st time I've shot one. Good action, didn't like the trigger feel
Desert Eagle 50 - Oh my freaking god! It was a hoot. Now I know why he wears a padded glove when he fires that thing. My hand is still tingling.heavy.
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 4:34:38 PM EDT

120 rounds thru my Saiga .308 conversion
260 rounds thru my ar15
100 rounds thru my ak47 pistol (a FUCKING blast!!!)
25 thru my .308 Long Eagle.

Ya, about an hour before dark I worked on a Norinco P.O.S. Uzi. It belongs to a friend who doesn't know much about guns. He bought it because he thought he got a good deal ($500) from a guy who was hurtin' for money. It won't feed properly. I fiddled with the mag & the mag catch and it appears I'm getting it closer to functioning better. It'll run about 5 rounds now before it jams. That's an improvement over jamming every round. I'll polish the feed ramp a bit & have a go at it tomorrow.

If you have a choice between a Norinco & a root canal, go for the root canal!

Ran about 250 rounds through my P22...nothing special.
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 4:55:59 PM EDT
The kids and I shot about 150 rounds of 22 out of their Chipmunks, the Ruger Single Six, and the Ruger 22 auto. We got a new steel target with four targets and then a reset target to we don't have to walk down range. I love those kids. My eight year old runs her Chipmunk like a pro.

Found 2 rusty cans of green beans in the pantry so i took my 9 year old son out back to shoot them.

The first can took him 4 shots of .357 to hit one and 3 from my 1991a1 to hit the second.

Learned something today too: green beans aren't as impressive as creamed corn when hit with a .357 or a .45 Gold Dot round.
