A day at the range with Jo
 
Ended up hitting the range today with Jo Da Plumber and a couple of other friends. We got out when they opened and were on the way home by 2pm.

I'll let Jo fill in the details of what he brought along.

I dragged out my LRB M25, Savage 12 FVSS in .223, and Fred Johnson built NM M1A. LRB shot very well, Savage shot OK, but not as good as it usually does and the NM shot just fine and dandy.

My friend Craig brought along his new Jon Wolfe built Armscorp M14 and his AR. I shot his M14 and the sights were not adjusting down to 100. They bottomed out at 200, but that is fixable with a higher front sight.

My other friend brought out his Armscorp M14, LaRue Stealth, and his M4. He is off to the Police Games this week and was deciding which rifle to bring along for the rifle stages. His M14 was whacking every target with no effort out to 400. Come-ups were spot on even though a new load (ammo) was used.

Here are a couple of pics of our very own JDP. We went to The Angeles Range which has paper at 100 and 200, and steel from 200-600.

Always good to get together with my friend Mr. Rock. Dude knows his sh1t, and has great guns. I shot both his Savage and the M1A. Love that M1A, I may have to get one of those babies.

I took out a new Kel Tec 223 for break in. She ran great. I was just getting her sighted in when a range officer pointed out that the ammo I had was steel core. Not allowed in fire country so had to put the Kel and the AR back in the cases for the rest of the day. But Iím quite content to shoot up clay pigeons with my 1022 . A bear custom trigger of course. All in all a most excellent day.

So Mr. Rock, did you guys finally finish off that tennis ball I left hanging at 100 yrds?

And thanks again for that care package.:D:D
