Some flix for the PA HTF guys.
Range was Kopple Big Beaver Sortsman's Association.
Guns were: Sig Sauer P226 Navy, Colt 6920, Bushmaster CAR-15, and GSG - 5.
Called my brother to see if he wanted to go shoot guns, here's what happened (very non-sequential) :
The usual EDC/"going out on the town" setup ,
Some pistol shooting,
The smile that makes it all worth it,
Some AR porn,
My wife heckling my brother,
More AR porn –– trying to hit paper @ ~280 yards with no magnification,
My brother taking his turn @ ~280 yards,
He did better than me.....with my own damn rifle (he was clever and dimmed the optic down some –– bastard).
GSG - 5,
Sig @ night,
I know there's better shooters (both camera and otherwise), and that our form isn't the best, but the fun we had far overshadows that in this particular instance.
I got to spend an evening with people I love dearly, punch some holes in paper with silly drawings on them, and finally realize just how intense distance shooting can be......especially in failing light.
If I had the money, I'd do it a million times again, if I didn't have the money, I'd at least try for a hundred times.
That looks like a heck of a good time.
It was sure nice around this area today, I didn't get to go shooting though.
We truly do have a good time when we get together.
I'm trying to get as much shooting in as I can before winter hits and I become a hermit.
Why, oh why can't I just have a cheap hobby?
looks like fun and it's looks like your wife shot better then you.
Both my wife and brother shot better than me.
The oddity being that my wife grew up hating guns, until she out-shot me with a $20 airsoft gun from Rogers. A week later, we bought that Bushmaster.
Then, she just HAD to have a Beretta M9....because she's Italian.
I'm not sure my brother shot a gun before he shot mine, I'd have to ask him.
In any event....I need to train more.
