Default Fun Day At The Range

Me and my friend hit the range for some weekday shooting fun. We took his SKS, and Mosin Nagant and my .22 Magnum and M&P 9. It was my first time shooting the Mosin, and my first time shooting a rifle with that much power. It was a heck of a lot of fun. He's been having some problems with the SKS not ejecting the spent casings so he brought it out after replacing the gas valve to see if that did the trick. It still seemed to have problems so he's going to replace the gas block next. I didn't do to well with the M&P. I can tell I need a lot more time practicing with it to gain some consistency.

The only target we saved was the one from 100 yards. We were shooting at it with both the .22 and the Mosin from the bench. I have no complaints considering this was my first time shooting the Mosin and my first time shooting any gun at 100 yards.

A fun day at the range, beats most other days all the time!
What .22 mag were you shooting?
Glad you had fun, the more you shoot, the tighter the groups

I have a Marlin 983T. I'd like to get a scope and bipod for it in the near future.

Looks like your Mosin is shooting high, like they are supposed to . Try a six-o-clock hold next time and you'll be dead nuts.

Looks like you had a good time!! Becareful of mosins they are an invasive species and grow out of control.

Range time is always a good time.
