Ahh, its been a long cold slog through winter. Lots of work and responsibility. Finally, as the buds start to peek out, flowers start flowering, and peepers start peeping, the weather starts to warm. We have a long weekend…. . Spring has sprung, and that’s an opportunity to go to the Range. Enjoy!
Range looks good. Not too crowded. Bright warm and sunny. Of course, not everyone had Friday off…. .
Did not want to hat-tip them specifically, but they have a nice set up. Go check out your own local ranges, or them.
We were shooting a friend’s Socom M1. Here we are set up and ready to go:
Boom! Anyway, here is my target at ~50 yards. I am not a very good shot:
The M1 did not like softpoints:
My FIL did a little better (Edit- he may very well be watching – a lot better):
And me at ~100 yards:
Lesson: The M1 was heavy and expensive to run these days – but I still want one. Why not? If you can’t score one via any private market, go to CMP – and you don’t need a souped-up socom to have fun and shoot:
I've dedicated this page to helping wake up America. You'll find lots of topics here of interest to American Patriots who wish to defend the Constitution completely and want to see America thrive the right way. We're bitter clingers who support limited government, support our military and veterans, don't mind waving Old Glory, and telling you we love the USA. Are you with us?
