First time out with my Argentine 1891 Mauser.

Today was the first time out with my first rifle. This is outside on the iron sights at 100 yards and I don't think I did so badly for my first time. The funny thing is that I went through about 25 rounds and didn't even hit the target. I switched to soft point ammo and started hitting. Both kinds of ammo were 174 grain so I'm not sure why I was so off with the FMJ rounds. I was shooting very high with the FMJ.
Either way it was fun, but much better once I started hitting the target.
My buddy was shooting his Bushmaster AR and once he shot the Mauser he said "Wow, that feels like a "real" gun."

Now if I get to go hunting I'll have to make sure the deer will stand still for me without anything in the way. A boy can dream right.
