    went to the range, set some pop bottles/milk jugs with water at 50 yards, used the iron sights and managed to hit all the bottles.

    damn that felt good :bowdown: but my shoulder hurts a little. I shot 24 rounds, but the M1 Garand has a hell of a kick to it :)

    8mm in a full length rifle is nothing in recoil compared to a mosin 38 or 44

    I heard that the real problem is the impact of him on the blunderbuss, not the other way around.

    M-1s and short Mosins have nothing on the G33/40.
