Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Default Range Report

went to the range today, and returned a much happier man...

Stopped at wallyworld to get some slugs, and ended up with 2 kinds. Remington 2 3/4" rifled slugs, and Federal vital shock 2 3/4" rifled slugs.

Started off with the Remington (as they were cheaper) fired at 15 yds with bead site, and noticed two very distinct and polar opposite holes; one where I aimed, and the other about 8" below my aim. Tried again, thinking I was just seeing stuff, and had the same results. So, something was blasting its way right along with my slug (wadding?)

Switched over to the Federal (and as a result, got rid of my phantom hole issue), and got settled in to firing with the red-dot. Took me a little bit to get used to adjusting it, but once I had it dialed in, I was golden!

My Knoxx SpecOps stock made a huge difference in my shoulder. I was able to go through many more shots before my shoulder started to feel anything. With the stock that came with the gun I was feeling the effects almost immediately.

No pictures, as I am camera-less. When the girl gets back from Omaha in a few months, I'm taking her to the range, and we're getting some footage

Congrats on the 590.I was looking at the 590 with the GRS, but fell for the 930 with GRS. Will be picking it up in a week or so. I have a 500 which has been working for 20 years. Wanted to up grade a little....
