    If your going to keep old relic guns and machine guns, I would have hid them better. It does suck that he never committed a crime with any of them and they will probably throw the book at him.

    They can’t keep track of illegals or criminals, psychos, crooked politicians! How do they expect to keep track of your paperwork on guns?

    Oh, well, they expect you to. The gubment can be $20 trillion in debt, but you lose your tax records from 2015, and the IRS will be on you...

    Junior's b-day present. Great grandad's hatchet, new handle of course. Took some serious cleaning.

    Not packing my bags yet, but got a really good call back from my interview... No details on what it is, but it involves guns, and I want to do it.

    Jerry Brown and the judge for the Steinle case should both be shot on a pier.

    I'm going to a "Meet & Greet" shoot tomorrow that another forum is having. It's at a private membership only shooting range just down the road from where I work. The weather is going to be great,and I'm going to shoot out to a mile on their long range with my Creedmoor's,if I get a chance to. Their range goes out to 1900 yards!

    What a great freakin day!!!
    I went to the Meet & Greet today,most of the guy's don't shoot long range,so only one other guy and myself went long. The range we were on went from 700 yards out to 2000 yards,that's a LONG ways when you're looking out at the gongs with only your eyes.



    Just above the tree line on the right side near the bottom of the pic is the 700 yard gong,and way out there near the top of the pic,the larger target is 1793 yards - a little over 1 mile,then there are a couple more behind it.



    My ballistics dope was dead on for all of my loads in both 6.5 Creedmoor's. Hitting steel from 700 to 1200 yards was pretty easy,but the wind was really changing directions going up the far hill. I rang steel out to 1500 yards,but couldn't connect with the 1793 yard gong on the half dozen shots I tried. The wind whooped my ass on that range!

    I can't shoot prone anymore. It makes me hurt too much,I'm glad I brought my tripod rest and a chair,this rifle rest ROCKS!

    That’s a nice set up THB! Did the others shoot at the 700-1000 yd targets? How many folks came to you meet and greet?

    Thanks,There were 10 or 11 guy's that came to the M&G,but only one other guy shot with me on this range. He's also a member of the range.
    He was having some problems with his Savage 110 BA Stealth 300 WM,we couldn't get it zero'd. He shot his RPR 6.5 Creedmoor,but was upset from messing with the other rifle so he didn't shoot out past 1200 yards.

    Most of the other's were shooting AR's and pistol's. I think one guy said he was going to shoot at the range across from where we were meeting at,it went out to 900 yards.
    He said he'd never shot past 300 yards,and wanted to shoot out to 500 if he could hit it.

    After we shot long range,we went back over to the tactical range and I let everyone shoot my suppressed 22's. They had fun shooting my 10/22,and both of the S&W pistol's in quiet mode!

    Sounds like a great day and successful even if you didn't connect at a mile. 1500yd is no pop shot

    Yeah, it was really fun. I don't get many chances to shoot a mile, it just sucked we couldn't see where the shots were hitting. My dope was dead on for the distance, but the wind was giving us hell out that far.
