    Went shooting yesterday and had a pretty close call. I shot my friends enfield, first shot was fine, reloaded, shot again. When I opened the bolt the second time the only thing that extracted was a half inch of casing. At first I was :confused: , then I was :ugh: . Once I realized what had happened I checked to make sure the rifle was still in one piece. It was Gaunt's enfield, I'll try to get him to post a pic of the casing later. I felt bad because he now has a casing lodged in his barrel. But :bigthumb: to the Brits for making a tough rifle.

    Other than that it was a fun day at the range. I bump fired the Ak for the first time, it was a lot of fun, and the ar lower that I built worked flawlessly.

    Crazy. Good thing it help up. My friends mosin stuck on some polish stuff, and when we open it up, the entire neck of the casing was split.
