Default Got the Remington out... finally

Well I finally got my Remington R1 Enhanced out, went to a new range in WV "Tango Down" its a great little range it is outdoors has a rifle sec. with nice new benches with plenty of rests, and it has a pistol sec. it has several steel targets and Action steel targets out to 50 ft on the pistol section and some on the rifle range that are at 50yrd 75yrd and 100yrd, I took my AR with me and its still holding 3 shot groups within a Dime with iron sights. Now I know a range report is not complete without pics but, all mine got over shot really couldn't make anything out except a lot of holes, I wasn't able to just grab my target once I shot, we would have to wait for the range officer to halt shooting while all the targets were re-set I really like shooting the steel a lot better than the paper so that’s where I did almost all my pistol shooting. Anywho I took both my 1911's shooting 200 rounds through the Remington and a 100 through the Caspian without a hic-cup, I did have one dud reload bullet it didn't fire but other than that they were both flawless.

It sounds like a good day and at a nice new range too.

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams
