Default Shot my first High powered rifle today!

Holy jebus! I loved it, so much power!!!! it was an Browning X-Bolt Stainless Stalker .270, only shot off 5 rounds. The 4th shot I got a bullseye. I am pleased. (My shot is the only actual shot, the rest is all metal shards from a spin target.)

Nothing like the push in the shoulder and the loud ass report of a high powered, reach out and touch someone, rifle. Congrats.

There is NOTHING, short of sex as a teenager, like dialing in a target at a decent, long range, pulling the trigger and seeing a hit. I love that feeling so much, I could write a song, a ballard and a poem about it.

I fear that your future will bring nothing but more expense in the quest of this Ultimate Beast.

Welcome to the Fraternity!
