86 rounds, four shooters, no hiccups, hang ups, FTAnything...

First mag, no plus one, just the standard seven round load.



A bit of a trigger push issue, resulting in a leftward group with that wonderful flyer. 30 feet.

Attachment 39680

Same target, centered up the group a bit, same distance... Second mag.

Beyond that, between all the shooters, four different guns, and the rest of my ammo, the targets get too chewed up.

I broke out my rifle at the very end, and it's shooting about 1.5' right at sixty yards or so. Not bad considering I took the scope off to clean everything, and was just basically doing a function check. It held a one inch group, standing, using a tree limb as a rest.

I don't know what's up with that third pic, it's a double post of the first.

Fixed it.

I would have shot more, but I only got 100 rounds, and I saved enough to keep two full mags.

Also shot my step dad's new bond derringer, has .22, .40, and 410/.45 Colt barrels. That thing is a little beast.

It, and mosinitis, are probably two of the best diseases to catch.

Yep. He's not as shy around the grandparents. He was willing to shoot at your place until he realized he'd have to be up on the hill with everyone.

That's what I'm hoping. I've tried to talk him into a BB gun, but he want's a BB pistol. I don't really want to start him out on a BB pistol. Yeah, he shot this .22 single action, but that was just for fun.

I've been actually trying to trade my Mosin for a .22 bolt action, and would you believe a lot of people have turned me down saying the Mosin is a piece of crap? Such close minded imbeciles...

I've looked at my first target pic, and I'm thinking I must have taken that pic after the second mag, because that's way more than 7 holes in the paper (plus the flyer in the wood). But the second pic is later on after I think the third mag.

I've messed the pictures trying to get the extras straightened out, I'll have to try to fix them again when my phone charges up a little.
