This was my first serious outing with my new AR-15, which I'd recenty purchased with hopes of competitive target shooting. However, I needed to see how we matched up.
Forgiving, easy to handle precision sewing machine. A little heavy. This rifle shoots way better than I do.
My first go was 30 rounds aimed at the exactly at the center bull. I needed to adjust 4" up an and 4.5 left right. I didn't care. I was having fun. Finally, you can see adjustments first up, then across. Without understadning the scope it was hard. My last shot was 1/3" high of the bull. Changed clips and stitched the left hand and upper-right bulls in essence: "FFE" (Fire for Effect)
I figured I was pretty much on the money and was really more interested in sending some lead down range and getting to know my gun. I'm still sighted high, but I didn't mess with it. A few more pics.
Summary; "Charlene" and I get along very well. The rifle fires without jams or feed issues. It's easy to adjust, comfortable to fire, and kicks no harder than a new born stretching his legs. Great weapon and I've got a keeper here.
I just need to learn to shoot better and get outdoors when I can get some practice in at a few hundred yards.
