Looks ok to me.

Did you go or not? The weather never cleared up here.

rms/pa you missed my 300yd shot with my Model 70!!! I got a lot done even though it was bad weather. I hope you can make the next shoot even though you said you didn't think you could.

Yes SAR's are sweet guns!! I think I can go over to the Rifle Forum and post some opinions on the 5.45x39 round now. I'm going to bring everything I own with me, and the 700rds of 45acp that I never got to shoot. Next time I'm gonna set up a clay at 500yds and blow the #$@! out of it! Actually I think I'll bring some balloons up and shoot them. I wanted to do more shooting with my Mini 14 but I ran out of ammo. And I forgot to bring my SKS

I'll have to miss it, as we'll be packing to move from Indiana to Bucks County, PA that weekend. Maybe next time,
I'd like to meet some shooters in the area.

Ok I'll I have to bring more SAR's next time, Fun little round that 5.45x39. When I get home tomorrow(today), I'll post those pics. I also got one of my friend's saying they will come out to the next shoot, as long as I let them bring their baby....


I gotta remember to bring a shell deflector for that SAR, or use the end o the line.

I just saw Peral Harbor at the Regal in Quakertown WOW long movie started at 10:30, just got in. Damn good too!


Oh yeah remind me to get a shell deflector for that SAR!!! I killed Soda's Soda with a 5.45 shell casing!!!!!

Yeah thats right, My Coke can was an innocent bystander and got wacked with a 5.45x39 shell for no good reason. It is a good idea to bring a shell deflector, especially if a lot of people are there.

Good Training!

Getting showered with SAR 2 brass while trying to shoot . Found brass (or is it steel?) in my sweater afterwards. Curse you Dead, now I'll have to get an SAR 2

Can't understand why only four of us showed up. The range was covered and shooting was quite pleasant. ARs and AKs are made to function in the rain.

We had the range to ourselves. Very nice layout, all the way out to 500 yds

Bring your Shotguns next time, they have a new 5 stand next to the pistol range

I'm beginning to think I am a jinx, bad weather every time Soda plans one of these shoots. If I promise not to come will you guys show up?

NO Geoff you better come! I actually liked shooting in the rain. I shot my 22magnum 200yds and shot a 7inch group. Not too bad for a gun thats not suppose be able hit anything that far out, especially in the rain. You should put a scope your AR Geoff so you can shoot out to 300-500yds. I'm going to bring some balloons next time for 300,400 and 500yds.

K80Geoff,

Now you have to get a SAR2, and return the favor with all that steel I dumped on you (aimsurplus.com has them @ $240 ea. still). Ok now on to the pics!! (Yes all two of them)

Here is one of the range, it doesnt do it justice!



Here is one of SodaPop. (Note his can of Coke before I took it out, with a spent 5.45 caseing)

OK!

You can just barely see the 500 yard berm in the pictures! Nice photos, take more next time!

BTW - rms/pa, there is an interesting thread on the 38 S & W on the 1911 forum:

http://www.1911forum.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/002642.html

Nice to see guns with history like yours.

I never fired an M1Carbine so you better show Darogue. Plus your Uncle's SAR will fit in nice. And I have my "TRAILER PARK AR" with me.

I never heard anyone call a Mini 14 a Trailer Park AR until Darogue told me. I'm still waiting for him to start a Thread over at the Rifle Forum with that title. Maybe after a few of you guys witness a 2MOA Mini 14 next week I'll post something. I'm going to see if I can hit paper at 400yds next week with mine. I have to do some reloading first though.

I'm wondering what happened to everyone nobody responded to my June 10th date. I wonder if everyone got the email? Dead and Geoff did you guys get an email from me last week about the new date? Or did you just see the new Thread here?

I got both of the emails that you sent SodaPop.

I did not reply as I already said I would be out at the next meet, before the last one ended Hopefully I can get a few others to come out with me this time.

Yes I got the E Mail.

Like I said I'm not coming so that the other guys will come. I know they haven't come because I am there so if I din't show up they will be there.

OK, how about a 400 yd shot with iron sights with my AR I believe I can do it if the target is a man sized silouette (one of those pistol targets the IDPA guys use). I hope somebody has a good scope, my scope is useless beyond 200 yds, need good glass to spot the rounds.
