Went to the range on Sunday with my girlfriend Lindsey, shes a natural, shooting the bolt-action 22 @ 25 yards.






It was a fun time, she had fun, and wants to go during this week sometime. :D :D :D :D

What kind of AK is that? It looks purdy. And how did you find a place to shoot with snow on the ground?

Damn, where did you get all that snow? I haven't seen any snow in weeks.

You get an attaboy for takin' the girl to shoot.

One demerit for resting the barrel on the rifle rest while shooting.

Erie, PA.. still plenty of it on the ground.

And my AK is a SAR-1, Kvar Nato OD Green Stock Set.

The 22 is an old remington.

A very dirty one. Did you clean that bolt yet?????



Looks like a good time. Glad you could share your interest with your g/f. Very cool. She sounds like a keeper.

I think what you meant to ask was, how did that red star trigger feel in the cold?

I feel sorry for you having to shoot in that snow. I shot my first service gun match yesterday. I had on jeans, and tee shirt, and a glock -golf shirt. I was breaking a sweat half way thru the match.

On saturday, I was watching a first time female shoot her girlfriends Beretta Storm. It was funny whatching her lean back - but she was having a blast.

Keep having fun, be safe

Later,

Ain't shootin' with Ladies fun?
Link Posted: 1/10/2005 6:41:27 PM EDT
Cool! BTW, she might get better groups if she would place the stock on the rest instead of the barrel.

Same here, except Im thinking its not worth it

Me and my wife shot my new DSA SA58 in the snow last weekend too. Seems like the snow tries to get into everything, dropped a few mags in it, have to clean the snow of the binos each time I use them. Still its a lot of fun though...
