    Yeah. I don't know how the hell these old guys do it. I was at the range today shooting my 10/22 at 50 and I was shooting decent groups, about 1/2" 6-shots pretty consistently. I was feeling pretty good about myself until I go downrage during a ceasefire and on my way back I'm looking at my groups alongside an older guy that was shooting at 100 yards. His groups were all pretty tight, about 2-3" apart with probably 10 shot groups. I ask him what he's shooting and he says a garand. I'm like "with irons?" and he's just like "yeah." My jaw practically dropped, this dude was at least 70 and had glasses like half an inch thick :rofl:. I'm like fuck, I can barely see my targets at 100 yards at 9x magnification what the hell.

    I go back to my bench and I look over and realize he had been shooting standing up off-hand the whole time. So yeah my 1/2" groups at 50 yards with 9x maginification off sand bags doesn't seem so cool anymore. :hs:

    Last wednesday at the range, this guy had what appeared to be a 44 magnum for .22lr. He was shooting out the bullseye at 30 yards.

    It's actually not quite as hard as it seems with a semi. I've shot 8" swingers at 300 yards pretty rapidly with an AR (not mine though). The biggest problem was timing it, since the swinging fucked up the target picture :o
