sweet looking rifle

Where's the pic of the target???

October 12, 2012, 07:54 PM
I could swear that's a CETME or G3 rifle in 7.62x51 NATO.

Up on the hill in the bunker. Jog on up there and have a look..LOL.


100 yards.

I hope that's not a 7.62x51 .... that rifle appears to be resting against her upper arm, not pocket of shoulder ..... I know the semi's reduce recoil some with their action, but still ..... ow.

Actually, all the 7.62 ammo on the tabe sez that it ain't .223 ...

Wanna put $1 on that Jimbob? I will also pass on your critique on her shooting skills. Way to go with the ladies,,LOL. ;);)

October 12, 2012, 09:30 PM
Is ....um .... "teh picture is unrelated" then?

October 12, 2012, 09:40 PM
Are you going to put up the $1?

October 12, 2012, 09:45 PM
Not about whether the gun is .223 ..... the ammo on the table does not appear to be ..... but that means bupkus..... so no, I'll keep the dollar I don't have, thankee.

October 12, 2012, 09:47 PM
Looks like a bag-o-.223 to me. I used to have a G3 style rifle in .223....fun, good shooter, kinda miss it......

October 12, 2012, 09:49 PM
Those cartridges are as long as the lady's fingers..... I have an AR in 5.56, and they are not as long as my pinky.

October 12, 2012, 09:52 PM
I just noticed the two empties next to the bag. The nearer one is 7.62x51 sized.... the further one, between the first and the bag of live ammo ... covered in soot/fouling ..... that looks to be spent poodleshooter fodder.

I was your call to pick at it. Try and enjoy the sport a little more. Women can shoot too and vote now I hear. :rolleyes:

The mag is curved. It's a 223.

JimBob the post was a bout shooting a .223 not what was on the table but that is OK. Relax. The table is by the hour so we share and she has been a HK collector for 25 years it's all good. All my girls shoot at 300 and we have no 25 yard shooters over nine years old.

Have a great weekend.

Whatever you guys took pictures of, it simply looked like fun to me. My wife is from the Philippines and had never fired a gun until we visited the States. She instantly fell in love with it. My family has a massive collection and she gets a kick out going to the range when we get the chance. Here's wishing you and your shooting partner another 40+ years of range time.

I read the news and I think there are three women shooters from the PI in moneymaking shooting sports in the USA.

MJ, don't be so sensitive to criticism.


October 15, 2012, 09:13 AM
Oh Paul edit your post a few more times so everyone can see how creepy you are.

I'm not your buddy and not your friend.

You sad thing.


October 15, 2012, 09:49 AM
The point I'm making is that if you are going to post something in these parts you just know you are going to get what you got, people criticizing every little detail. You know how that goes.

So, you post your post and takes your chances.

For what it is worth, that is a nice looking rifle and looked like fun and a great range.

Hang in there, brother.
