Default A few pics from the other day

Participated in a Vintage Military Bolt Action Rifle competition the other day. I was shooting an 8mm Mauser, as were many others. Iron sights shooting between 200-400 yards.







At one stage we fired a few rounds through an authentic Colt M1911.

Isn't it great to spend a nice day outside shooting? It looks like you had a great time.
