Default Smashing pumpkins

Myself a buddy and the youngest (buddys eldest was supposed to go but was out with his granny when we left ) headed north for the range. We got there a half an hour before it opened but the place was PACKED. Seemed like every hilljack in the tri county area was there for the last minute rush to sight in their guns for deer season. (Kinda figured) So we shot south to a friend that lives in the area and we set up a make shift backstop (SOB backed by three layers of logs set in the direction of absolutely nothing for 20 miles) and commenced to have a good ole redneck time.

I came back home AMAZED at the damage these 240 gr JHP .44 mags actually do outta this carbine. It punching holes in the pumpkins as big or bigger than the 12 guages of my fellow redneck friends.

I have also come with confidence that wether it be the CVA Wolf .50 M/L or the Ruger .44 carbine, if my youngest gets a deer in his sights....he'll get the job done.

Hope y'all enjoy these...probably not as much as we enjoyed ourselves today tho

Youngest working with .44 carbine...

Looks like you had a great time. I actually prefer this impromptu type shooting over the range anyways. Refers are great for 22 or 22mag.
