I laugh everytime I see these range ninja's show up with their long range missles,and then wonder why they won't shoot at short range.That's kinda like trying to shoot sub-MOA groups at 500 yards with a 22lr,IMO.
They were very nice guy's,but I really don't think they have a clue to what they are doing with these big rifles.
I just don't get it,It must be an ego thing in owning a rifle that is bigger/better than the next guy's.
You know I find comments like these offensive. You say they were very nice guys but then you bash them.
Are they inexperienced? Yes.
Is there a more practical gun for this range? Yes.
Is it any of your business to regulate the gun they buy and the distance they use it at? No. You seem to have the same reading problem the administration does with the second amendment.
I am for more freedom not less and if they think the optimum range for a 50 BMG is 25 Yards more power to them. As long as they are following good range safety practices, I don't have to agree but I do have to support their right to do so.
Further more I would like to see a perma-ban policy enacted with the use of mall ninga, range ninga, walmart ninga. There is no reason to give the anti-gun group ammunition for their argument.
We think the 338 lapua should be banned even gun owners agree It has no purpose.
TxHillBilly is quoted as saying about the 338 lapua "why in the hell would you want to shoot it. (...) I laugh everytime I see these range ninjas show up. (...) I just don't get it, it must be an ego thing"
We have enough of a fight to keep our rights we need to quit fighting internally.
