What gun were you shooting? Never mind I saw it in your video. I was hoping for a hot babe but all we got was you.

Just something so satisfying as hearing the steel ring at distance. Once, just once I hit a 700 yard gong with an iron sighted Mauser K98 from the standing position. A guy next to me said, "Do it again". Yeah RIGHT! Nice shooting sir, nice rifle, thank you for sharing.

To paraphrase Robert Duvall from Apocalypse Now: "I love the sound of steeling ringing in the morning. Sounds like... victory!"

Was he saying "Do it again" as in that was really cool, or "Do it again" I bet you can't.
