**Official** Day at the Range thread

I figured that many of us go to the range often and may have some experience we'd share, but at the same time feel they aren't worthy of a new thread. So post those barely worth while comments in here.


I'll start:

Today i took a British born guy who lives in Australia and his American wife to the range. Wife was from Philly and him being British, living in Aus, he didn't have much exposure to guns. But he said he wanted to go shooting while in the states. We did.

My LGS/Range is about a 100,000sf facility with inventory to match. 8 lane 100yd rifle range and 30 lane 25yd pistol range. Must have been some type of sensory overload for them as they walked in. Neither one of them could get out a coherent statement for about 2 min.

They both were good students. The guy, only ever shot a shotgun in England, kept a 4" group at 7yds the whole time. Even his first 10 few rounds were within 5" group. His wife did better with the S&W M&P 15-22 with the Aimpoint on it. At 25yds she was consistently center mass to lower center but kept within 7". She didn't do as well with the hand guns. She was anticipating a lot and consequently, constantly shooting low.

I messed around with taking slo-mo videos of them after each of them had put at least 20 rounds or more though each of the 5 firearms i brought. These are at 240fps, so the quality is pretty low.

Who's Erika?

I can see why she's hunched like that though.

Ahhh.... gotcha.

yeah, new iPhone. The quality on the phone is much better than youtube. I believe that at even at 240fps it records at 480p or better. But maybe i'm wrong.

No way posts 2, 7, & 9 can be considered derailing. haha

But thread name change is warranted.

I have a bag full of pistols from the last range day that I haven't bothered cleaning yet.

Yikes! The shotgun i cleaned is my clay and bird gun; a Benelli Cordoba and I hadn't cleaned it for over a year. Probably 150 to 200 shells through it in that time. We had a little dove hunt this past Saturday and it worked just fine. When cleaning it I only dirtied 3 patches (2"x2") and the barrel came clean after 3 passes with the barrel mop. I was surprised that it didn't look very dirty to begin with.

F#CK Cory! He is a lying sack of shiet who claimed serving in the army as an infantryman and being deployed to the middle east. Dude went AWOL when he got to bootcamp.

His wife is hot though

Is that the 15-22 you picked up? Mine is addicting.

I might pick up one of the HK guns next.
