Me and a buddy took some toys to the local forestry range today. Somebody must've been celebrating MLK day because the place was covered with "targets" and spent casings. We did our part and perforated one of the "targets" (fullsize piece of plywood) with these.

Hehe, sorry. That MAK-90 is a work in progress. My next step is to replace the barrel with a Polytech with the bayo lug and muzzle attachment detent in place. That particular Chikom is scary accurate for an AK shooting crappy Russian ammo. As much fun as it is to empty 30 round mags with the Commando, there is just something about a nice AK that puts a smile on my face.

Law enforcement issue. It's a Colt M16A2 Commando.

Hey, I'm a non LEO peon too! I just invited my buddy to the range and he brought his M16. The AK is mine and it is semi-auto. He is a door buster. That's why he has such cool gear. I am the guy in the 2nd pic, he is the one with the Glock 23 and the AK.

I used to have another friend who was big into full auto gear and I miss shooting with him. He had lots of neat toys.

The guy with me used to have an M4 but his department just recently went to the Commando. The M4 was 3-round burst. I think I liked it better. The Commando is so short and light, it is very hard to control when you cut it loose. Even spitting 2-3 rounds at a time is difficult compared to the M4.

I know lots of people have hard-ons for full-auto and super short barrels, heck I used to also. But once you actually handle one and shoot them, they are much harder to master than say a semi-auto 16" barreled gun. The light weight, short sight radius, short barrel (loss of muzzle velocity and sometimes they tend to keyhole sooner) and tendency for them to "walk" just really makes them specialized. To be perfectly honest, I would much rather have a regular old RRA or Colt M4gery for what I do. Oh and the noise, good God that ten inch barrel is loud!

Your local forestry range wouldn't happen to be called "Clear Creek" would it? That looks like the one I use. Or maybe all Forestry dept. ranges designed/built the same way?

Great post, Sulaco.

Hi Sulaco, Very nice set-up! Do you have to modified/trimed the YHM single-point end plate? On my Colt it dragged on the charging handle. Thanks

Close, it's called Cedar Creek and it is in Newberry Co., SC just outside of Whitmire. If you are in Kentucky, I think the similar name is all these ranges share. But yes, I am sure all national forest ranges look the same. Spent shell casings and all.

Yes, those sort come in handy if you know what I mean.

The M16 isn't mine, it is my friends and they have an armorer that does all of their work so I doubt he knows. I'll ask though!
