How's your shootin'

Postby lonestar144 » Fri Apr 06, 2018 6:13 pm

Don't think I have come across a thread like this, so.... Anyways, post up your target groups with a short description.

Firearm make/model
Range to target
type of sights
type of ammo
Firing position

I'll start

DPMS Sportical .223/5.56
50 yrds
iron sights
Tulammo stell case 55gr
table with bi-pod

Not to terribly bad shooting at a small target and cheap ammo

Went to my range today shooting my Colt 9mm I put up a shoot-n-see target and decided to do double taps with 9 rounds (yes I know the last shot is not a double tap :lol: ) I have never done this before to this level of accuracy, granted it was only a 7 yards but I still was super happy with the 2x taps. I also was shooting at 25 yards to trying the Colt out long distance.(2nd picture) I just love this Colt :txflag:

Quick trip to the range to zero the temporary optic on my new PDW a few weeks ago. This was at 50yds, while tired and hungry, in the rain, just resting the pistol on the mag, with a red dot... is that enough excuses? :biggrinjester:

(hopefully these pics work)

This is the pistol in question, 300BLK with a 5" barrel. I'm happy with the results, I should have an effective range of about 250yds which is exactly what I was going for.

I don't have pictures of it but we drilled holes in a 2x4, inserted golf tees in the holes and shot paintballs off the tees with a 17hmr at 50 yards. It was a fun game but we needed a longer range, 50 with a scope was a little too easy.

Nice!

I went yesterday and shot a variety of handguns but didn't save my targets. I need more dry firing practice. :???:
