Of course, I've also got a Level IV plate carrier with mag puches and a second rifle hidden in the windbreaker......

yup, if it weren't over 5 megs, I'd post the high-res version. But I don't want to kill the server.

Good man. Never can tell when those clays are going to hit back!
- I was kidding.....btw.

That picture would be perfect if the orange shooter were back 3 feet.

However, it is a really cool picture.


I take a camera to the range every time and for some reason i get too interested in shooting to think about taking pics.

no problem. It was a really fun time, we had two .22 bolt-gun an old mossberg target rifle (the one I'm using) and a old Marlin .22 bolt-gun that was ordered out of a Sears catalog in the 60s, two 10/22s, and my P22. We set up an entire box of clays at, like I said, varoius ranges from 30 yards to 150 yards and had about 5 people sitting along the ridge plinking away at them. One of the best ways to kill an afternoon without spending alot of money. In addition to the .22s we brought along a Mosin M44, a 1944 Enfield-Webley in .388 webley, and an AK pistol we built from a Romanian kit.

Nice pic. I shot some .22 today myself. Took the old Advantage Arms Glock 17 conversion out, and now that it is broken in, it has started shootin Remington subsonics reliably. Shot some plates today, there is something really cool about that little metallic "ding" that it makes. Clays are more satisfying though. Gonna have to try that Saturday.

Good call on the trauma plates. That guy next to you has a sort of shifty look in his eye.

that "guy next to me" happens to be the gf with her 10/22 with a little BSA red-dot (thing has held zero, and held together for over 12 years!!) She actually made one of the 150 yard shots on a clay with that thing.

I don't get it, why is that a cool pic of you?!?!

Just kidding!! You should photoshop that other person out so that you're isolated in the picture. I think it would be much better without the distraction.

Interesting to see a bolt gun with a full length tube mag. Is it a Mossberg or department store gun? Nice rifle.

I've got a real old Winchester that looks similar.

Only difference is the stock on his rilfe looks much nicer.

It's a Mossberg 46B(b) target rifle with the factory scope mount and the peep-sights removed, I believe the date stamp on it is 1951 1939, but I'd have to check to be sure. It has a pretty old Bushnell Sportview 3-9x on it. Not the greatest scope in the world, but decent enough.


ETA: corrected the date


ETA2: added images

Cool pics guys! I've never seen a full tube on a bolt gun, either.

But if flying brass makes you tingle where you pee, check out this AWSOME shot of me Anarchy grabbed! The camera foo is strong with that woman! She got a BUNCH of neat pictures that day, but I am using this one for my background on my computer. There's a total of 4 in flight in the picture.

I wish I had the photo skills she does! She knew exactly where to stand to get the brass in flight.
