    shot a Glock 17 9mm, Ruger .40, Sig Sauer .45acp and an MP-5 :bigthumb:

    loved the Sig and was most accurate with it- glock was the worst....didnt like the way it fit in my hand or how it shot - Ruger was nice and shooting the auto mp-5 was crazy :x:

    gonna go back and try out a few more before i make my first purcase but as of now im in love with the Sig .45

    welcome to the club :)

    I think the only people who don't find it fun are those who are wussies and are scared, or those who are against guns but have never shot them :mamoru:

    I shot 4 rounds of skeet yesterday with a o/u I borrowed from a friend....I've got a huge swollen cheek because it didn't fit me correctly:rofl: It was fun...but I definately took a beating....so I'll steer clear of russian shotguns from now on :mamoru:

    My cousin has a mossberg 935 that does the same thing, we put some 3.5s through it when he first got it and it gave me a love tap on the cheek but his looked like someone slapped him :hsugh: It has shims to adjust the LOP and drop but he doesnt know how to use them and I don't feel like helping :mamoru:

    Glad to hear you had fun. I got hooked when I was 8, the first time my dad took me to the range. Been shooting ever since, and love every cordite smelling moment of it.

    Shot my M4A3 the other day with some Lake City rounds (62Gr M855). Damn does that extra 7 grains of powder make a huge difference over Wal-Mart ammo (55Gr Rem .223)

    While grains can also be a measure of powder weight in the case of .223/5.56 ammo it is the measure of the weight of the bullet and not the powder charge.

    62 grains of powder would be over a double charge for most .223 loads and would probably result in catastrophic weapon failure.

    You really have it in for me huh?

    No it was an assumption, based on the fact that on the box itself it said 62 Grain 5.56mm M855. I was only trying to make the comment that it had a much larger recoil than the lower grain (bullet, powder, wtf ever) than cheaper ammo. Dont get ur panties in a twist about it, im not at the super weapon guru level that you are.

    On a side note, what exactly is it that makes the Lake City military rounds have more power than ur run of the mill varmint rounds?

    I don't have it out for anybody, infact I didnt even realize you posted it either :mamoru: You are right though, you'll get more recoil from heavier bullets.

    Lol i kid, but I guess that makes sense. There has to be a larger (small) powder charge to get that heavier round to go at a higher velocity than the average round.
