I couldnt help but shake my head at the range yesterday. I was there sighting in my new BM upper when three young arab guys set up in the lane next to me with a 20" postban AR15 of some kind. They put out a large size bullseye target at 15yards and have at it. First guy fires 10rounds and may have hit the target twice. Second guy does alittle better atleast puting his rounds on/all over the paper. Third guy, well lets just say, it was the first time I've had to duck at the range. Most of his rounds hit the ceiling. Again this was at 15yards.

They then put the target at 30yards and one guy impresses himself by hittting the 10 ring once. The range employee came and put an end to the distruction soon after.

I could only think two things. One, I felt sorry for the AR15. Too bad it didnt end up in the hands of a responsable marksman. Secondly, if the arab terrorist shoot like that.. no worries. Except, if they hijack another jet.

I thought Arab terrorists preferred 7.62x39. Maybe the recoil buffer throws them off.

The only problem is that it's kinda hard to miss a plane when shooting from the [i]inside[/i].z

well just look at how they shoot in The palistinian areas. Who needs sights as long as the mag doesn't run out just keep firing and firing without aiming till something falls down!

The problem is in this area, around Detroit, we have ALOT of arabic people. Many of which have guns and CCW's for the gas/party stores they own in Detroit.

Its one reason I've been to the range alittle more lately and have a place up in Northern Michaign to bug out to.

What i dont understand is why Muslims/Arabs have such poor marksmanship skill. You'd thing that with all the wars in the middle east, that they would have at least rudimentary firearm handling capability. What did they do when all they had were Mosin-nagants, Hakims, and mausers?

They would bear watching...   Shooting at 15 and 30 yards is a bit like aiming a plane...   Funny they didn't explore the real capabilities of the weapon, but maybe they have in mind a closeup target and need to know no more...

Depending on what they've been using. AKs aren't going to be too effective at the 300+ yard distances they've been having to deal with, and the IDF knows this. Thus Israeli M16s and M4s are rapidly replacing the AKs and an increasing number of them are current Israeli M16s with long-distance scopes on them.
