as the Company COOK! :lol: :lol: :lol: Well maybe they will give me the Company stock re-finisher instead. :D

I am too tired to resize the pics so they are all links.

This was the best time I have ever had shooting. It started about 9am and went til about 7pm. I think I shot 116 aimed shots.

We started out at range 2 (I think) at the 25 yard line. We practiced shooting "Freds Quick 'n Dirty AQT targets". These are simulated 100, 200, 300, and 400 yard silhouettes. Then we teamed up with another shooter and did some drills. Your buddy would feed you a dummy round or a real round and coach you on flinching and other things.

Then we moved to range 1 (I think) and got to sight in at 200, 300, and 400 yards. After sighting in we did the Sniper Qualification test from WW2. Pop ups at 200, 300, and 400 yards. Some pop ups were the full torso and head, and some were just the head and shoulders. You can see some of the pop ups above the paper silhouettes.

Needless to say I didn't qualify as a sniper, but it was VERY gratifying to make a head shot at 400 yards with a rack grade M1A and open sights.

This day was a lot of firsts for me,

First time shooting in an organized shoot,
First time shooting at a range over 100 yards long,
First time shooting prone.

Some other BR members were there. Gundude shot very well! Nice to me you!

I think the high scorer was a BR member from Roanoke shooting a M1A with a 3rd Gen. SA scope mount & SA scope. (I could be wrong on this, there was like 35 people shooting).

I would say maybe 60% M1A's, then Garands, FAL's, Cetme's, WW2 Russian bolt guns.

Jack of Fred's M14 Stocks was very nice and gave me a lot of good shooting tips.

He had T-shirts, Ammo and other stuff for sale. I pick up a bunch of the AQT targets to practice with. Oh yeah, he also had 5 stocks there for sale, I picked up 2 of them. 8O

Come down to the next shoot in October! You can stay at my house the night before & after. I only live 45 minutes away fron the range. I think some people come from as far as you are.
