    Well I remembered to bring my camera to the range this time, so I figured I might as well post some of the pictures up.

    My 91/30 Mosin. It's always fun to bring the old gal out, even at 69 years old she's ready to throw down.

    My Ruger Mark I. It has seen plenty of use, but still shoots great for a 54 year old pistol. It was in a box taken apart and my grandfather told me if I could put it back together I could have it. When he passed away last year it became even more important to me. :hs: It's one of my few possessions that means anything to me sentimentally.

    My father's Ruger Mark III. Shoots great like mine but has a few new features like 1 more round capacity and last round bolt hold open.

    My father's recently purchased converted Saiga in 7.62x39. He got probably the last one that classicarms had at the time. This was sort of the star of the show today, as he hadn't shot it much yet.

    After we got the iron sights taken care of, my father mounted his new POSP scope that he just got and the real fun began.

    These next few pictures were of myself getting ready to shoot and checking out my impact on the paper. They also show some more angles of the 100 and 200 yard range at the club we are members at.

    We got the AK sighted in pretty well, there will be some more fine-tuning on a day when there is less wind.

    It was hopping earlier. There was a match on that range in the morning and there were undoubtedly plenty of people then. A member here named reman shot in that competition I believe, he started a thread earlier. There was a muzzle-loading introduction on the "A" range, range orientation for new members on "B" range, we were on "C" range, and there were a few people seen in the last pic on "D" and "E" range. It's usually pretty light on Sunday though, we had free reign on that range the entire time we were there.

    Is that for 4x POSP scope? How is it? I need to grab one for a Romy AK I'm building. Maybe use it as my deer gun next season.

    I hope you both join, we can always use new members. There will be some action shooting bays soon enough, hopefully there will be many IPSC IPDA and the like type competitions taking place there.

    It's an 8x. The optics are great, nice and clear. For the money there isn't anything else available that comes close.

    They are illuminated too, correct? Does that work pretty well?

    I haven't looked through it real late at night but I think it would be great for low-light because the reticle isn't extremely bright. The eye piece keeps most of the ambient light from coming in too, so that helps your eyes adjust.

    Can you still use the irons with a POSP? and is 163$ a decent price for an 8x?

    What's the policy for bringing guests that aren't members? They're not family members or SOs that live in the same house so they don't fall under another membership option.

    They don't have to get a membership, do they? :hs:

    They can come a few times with a member provided you are with them the whole time they are there, they sign a waiver and get a name badge. They like people to bring guests mainly in the hopes that they will become members, so if you bring someone many times they might see that on the list and comment to you about it.

    You can still use the irons, but there is not much space. I'd say thats about what my father paid for his, so that might be the best deal you can get for one.
