A few years back I went and did an Appleseeds with my Mosin. I didn't do real well at the AQT's and it got so hot it was leaking cosmoline out of the stock. No pussy pad. Just a t-shirt. Shoulder was fine, although I did get a hell of a sunburn on my calf from shooting prone in shorts in July.I call it the pussy pad. Hey I was shooting 60 rounds from the bench! Didn’t want to bruise my shoulder too much!
With the pad, I could shoot that thing all day long.
Think we drove in past you coming in. Grey Tacoma went allll the way down to the last (apparently personal, private, and luxury) bay and made a bunch of noise. She uh, she’s good at 100 yds. with iron sights but apparently today was blast away at close range day. She hates working from home and I’m trying to keep her happyIf it was mid afternoon yesterday...and you saw a red car next to pistol bay #3...that was me!
My daughter was to my left on the end of the line, there was a guy at the other end with an AR, so it was loud from one side to the otherI wouldn't want to be the poor bastard on either side of you trying to shoot accurately. Probably made them jump every time you pulled the trigger.
Ayuh...that was me! You take such good care for her! ...you should tell her that you DESERVE another gun!Think we drove in past you coming in.

Same here. And JFC would this f***ing rain just stop!! I’m on the coast and there saying it will linger until noon tomorrow. I’m going to try to hit the range tomorrow afternoon.I've been shooting more than before this thing all started. 3 times in the last 2 weeks.
If the rain would just stop, we'd be going more. In fact we planned for this afternoon, but I'd rather not stand in the rain in 45 deg weather.
Amen to that! it sucks enough being holed up but does it have to be so damn miserable out all the time? Cold, wet, and 40. It feels like October.Same here. And JFC would this f***ing rain just stop!!

Was waiting for some rapid fire and you certainly delivered at the end there. I’m sure you needed that more than most.I’m still shooting too as the range is open. Steel x39 from the mak. Posted this in the Coronavirus megathread but I’ll add it here too for the shooters “sick” of the virus threads.

I’ll be heading out shortly to hit the range. Bringing the Mosin M44, Dan Wesson 44 mag and 22lr. Maybe the Marlin 357 too...Same here. And JFC would this f***ing rain just stop!!

Looks like you had a good timeGorgeous day up here, so I just had to get out to prevent Covid Cabin Fever. I decided it was a .22LR kind of day, so I loaded up and headed out.
First off, I decided it was Ruger day, so...

My problem-child 22/45 Lite, that couldn't get though an entire mag without this exact failure every 2-3 rounds. I need to check the ejector, and maybe replace the extractor and spring. But...

My LCP II .22LR was flawless in 100 rounds. But I couldn't let Ruger have all the fun, so I did a little S&W action, too.

My favorite .22LR SBR with suppressor. M261 .22LR conversion in a dedicated upper. 5" barrel. Quite as a nail-gun, and tons of fun to shoot. But, today, it gave me a bit of a surprise...

Out of battery discharge. Twice. Never done that to me before, and I have a lot of rounds through this setup. Well, that's why we wear glasses. Not to play favorites, I went to my other .22LR upper...

Not as quiet, but still tons of fun, and runs like a top. This is the Tactical Solutions upper that Midway was blowing out last year for dirt cheap. Not an AR fan? OK, how about some Mid-east action?
View attachment 344829
Well, not really Mid-east, but IWI did collaborate with Walther on this. Built like a tank, and runs and runs and runs...Wait. Walther? That's German, right? How about some "HK slap?"

Guns this much fun should be a sin. I get my "Die Hard" on for pennies.
Had the entire range to myself until I was pulling out and locking the gate. Someone was pulling in as I was locking up. Awesome day. I couldn't ask for better "therapy," and absolutely "essential." f*** you, Maura.
