    So we went to the range yesterday to sight in the CZ.



    We took along an old .223 that I've never shot before. I don't know WTF I was thinking, but I shot it before I had myself comfortable, and it hurt a little. So of course, I shot it again, but I was really tensed up, and it hurt a lot.

    :wtc:

    I'm such a dumbass. I didn't even want to shoot the dumb thing, I wanted to shoot the 6.5.

    I've heard .223 breaks your collar bone if you shoot more than 30 rounds. :eek3:

    You are either gay or female. Either way your story makes a little more sense.

    Was it a bolt gun? Without a recoil system .223 can have a little snap but it seriously isn't that much.

    those new Winchester Supreme Extended Range 3 1/2" produce about 70lbs of recoil in an 8 pound gun, that's more than most large bore magnums :eek4:

    ruger single shots are falling blocks, not break actions.

    Yeah, people with boyfriends usually are. Can't get anything past you gun people ;)

    Yes, it is a bolt action with a cracked stock :noes:

    It was just like getting a shot. The first one pushed a little bit harder than I was expecting, so I really tensed up and the second one hurt. Combination of getting out of good form and being all tense and flinchy. I should have stood up to shoot it again. :hs:

    I was reading some magazine or something and the author told a story about how he was shooting some elephant gun and ended up slipping two vertebrae or something in his back, and now his legs feel like there's constantly weight on them. I've always been leary about heavy recoil after that :hs:

    The only .223 I've shot is my friend's AR and between the lack of recoil and all the plastic it feels like a toy... then again I learned to shoot with a Mosin Nagant so maybe that's why.
