GUN Some shooting pics from the weekend

Discussion in 'On Topic' started by Market Garden, May 25, 2009.

  1. Well, we spent more time shooting than taking pics, so not too many pics, but we had a great time.

    Here's my AR ready to go.

    It got pretty hot, so I gave it a few minutes to cool off.

    And the AR.

    Laurel also expressed interest in getting a Remy 700 in .308, so I told her she should give it a try. She rolled a few of her own first.

    Priming on the Co-Ax.

    Some are ready to go.

    And finally shooting it.

    Now she REALLY wants a 700.

    Finally, a nice view.

  2. Oh, and one of my Canadian friends and his fiance came down. Neither of them had ever shot before, so I started them on the .22s and then moved them to the AR. They liked it.

    I was having issues with eye relief on the scope on the .308. I ended up with a couple bruises and a bump on my collarbone. I can't wait to build one. :hs:

    Niiiiiice. PNW looks like a whole helluva lotta fun.

    How far/long before you can get to "no mans land"? Any public forests or similar within proximity? I want to be in that valley shown in the scenic pic.



    I have only one pic from this weekends shooting/fishing/drinking/camping extravaganza in the heart of bourbon country, but it's a really fucking good one. Waiting on my buddy to email me it (I didn't bring my camera).
     
  6. That's about 2 hours north of Seattle. Starting about an hour north of Seattle it's pretty much all farm land. All the national forests are open to shooting, and I know there are places closer than where we shoot (my parents' cabin.)

    fuck my life

    that shit >>>>>>>>> living in the fucking shadow of the nation's capitol and only being able to shoot at a couple indoor places, the longest of which is 50 yards but is constantly crowded = usually wait times and limited to 1 hour.

    fuck

    So is there anywhere around port orchard, bremerton to go shooting like that?
     
  15. I don't know anything specific about over there, but I'm sure there are lots of places over there to shoot though.

    I'll admit it, I only clicked to see the pics of Laurel with guns. :mamoru:
     
  19. Next time we go up, I'll take some pics from up on the old logging roads. There's some incredible views from up there.

    :rofl: at Laurel love. Does WMD have a queen?


    Looking at the pic of you shooting the 10/22 proned out, you look to have pretty decent form. Two things I've found helpful: First, try and make sure you are straight behind the rifle. While you won't likely notice the benefits on a 22, on rifles that have more recoil it directs the force straight back, where if you are in line with the rifle you have more friction to help oppose said force, giving you quicker shot recovery, and less "bounce" on the bipod. Two; I like to pull one leg in a little bit (usually my right, as that just seems more natural to me, maybe because I'm a righty) which will get you up off the ground a little more, thereby taking your lungs and diaphram out of the equation to a degree. Also, a trick for Harris'; I like to bury down on them, leaning forward into the rifle. This kinda "locks" the Harris into place (you'll notice there is some fore/aft play in them) giving you better stability, and keeps things tracking straight between shots.

    Something else that a well endowed girl told me that I didn't think about.... Shooting with a higher bipod can help comfort and NPA if you find that you are having to smash your chest into the ground to get low enough. Never thought about it, but I imagine that could be uncomfortable, especially if shooting rifles with recoil where your chest would be pretty much dragging along the ground.

    Lookin' good though.... I see you've been taught well :coolugh:

    pretty sure there are some in te CA legislature that would swear under oath that your 10/22 is acting of its own free will here and taking aim.

    I'll try the leg up thing. That sounds like it would probably be a bit more comfortable and would probably help to reduce the pressure on my boobs a bit by giving them a bit of an angle so they're not smushed flat on the ground.

    What I ran into with the bipod is if it was too low I was too smashed against the ground, and if it was higher, my collarbone was absorbing a great deal of the impact. That resulted in a large lump on my collarbone that's still there. It wasn't helped by the almost nonexistent recoil pad on the stock. I'll have to try MG's .223AI Remmy with the B&C stock bench rest to see if it's more comfortable. I seem to be able to settle in a lot quicker while sitting instead of prone.
