Default Fun range time today

Today me and the girl went out and did some shooting. We took the mosin, m1 carbine, and ruger p90 45acp.

Started off shooting the m1 at 50 yards. Had a blast doing some plinking.

Then the mosin at 100 yards, got some pretty good groups with it, but it was shooting about 3'' to the right consistently. I can't complain though. 2.5 inch groups with military surplus ammo.

The woman had been really wanting to shoot the 45 more since the first time she shot it. So me and her took turns at the 10 yard mark. She did pretty dang good for her second time ever having a pistol in her hand.

I am finally starting to get the hang of pistols. I am a pretty good rifle shooter but i struggle when it comes to pistols. I had been working on my technique and this is how i ended up today.



I know its nothing impressive but that's an improvement from my usual with a hand gun.
Either way today was a good time, sorry i don't have anymore photos. I will try to get some more next time i am out.

Just keep practicing, the groups will get much tighter. Anyway, just making smoke and noise is great fun.

That's goal. I finally got to purchase a fairly large amount of ammo for multiple calibers so much practice is in the future.
