It is a lot of fun playing with the laser on the M&P 15-22 at 10 yards. I had to get one of my spinners re welded after we shot one of the flippers off. Necco Wafers make great targets.

I remember when I was just a little'un. I turned 13in 1995, when the assault weapons ban was enacted. I lived in upstate NY. My daddy got me a ruger 10/22. When I got it, it was my first semi auto. I thought it was the coolest thing in the world, 10 rounds could be gone in like 2 seconds. I loved that gun and I still have it. I only use 10 rounders in that particular gun, it just doesn't feel right to use anything else. I'm actually glad I was restricted to 10 rounders as a child so I can appreciate what I've got.

My 13 year old son and I went out yesterday. He was shooting his 10/22. I was shooting my Model 60. That is just some great father and son time. We even found some printable Zombie targets on the internet. That is a blast shooting at a 8 1/2 x 11 zombie at 100 yards.

Sounds like fun! I love that kids are getting into it. When mine get old enough you better believe I'm gonna have them shooting.

I shoot for fun all the time. Im not a "tactical" person. I work on improving accuracy but it's always a fun time.

Man I wish that was my job! I've really been thinking about a gun career. I dont want to be a gunsmith or nothing. I've drawn up a few designs, but I do t have the resources to make anything. I'd share them but I don't have any copyrights or anything so I guess I won't.
