Range pics thread
 
2 Attachment(s)
I figure this has been done before but I didn't see any after a quick search.

I want this thread to be a place where people can share their range pics, pics of their firearms, targets they shot, pics of their range setup, range gear, themselves shooting, friends, family, etc. Basically anything you feel like posting.

Feel free to add whatever you want.

SO, here goes...

Here is my M95/34, which I call The Punisher for what it does to my shoulder. I won't lie, this NEVER gets shot without the slip-on wussy pad. Got this from SOG.

Also a pic of one of the targets from my reloads using Hornady 205gr bullets from Grafs and IMR 4064. Let me know if anyone is interested in the load data I use, I also have some worked up with TAC.

Here is a Type 53 that I refinished the stock on(AKA butchered) before I joined this forum and you guys converted me to more of a C&R purist. In real life it doesn't look as red as the picture shows.

Here is another Type 53 (I have 3, all from buds) that I put in an ATI synthetic stock. Man, you guys are gonna hate me today. BUT, there's been no permanent modifications to this rifle. The bolt body I sent off for the bent bolt was a non-matching extra. This rifle shoots really well. Here's a target, 10 rounds, 50 yards, silver tip surplus ammo. I'm not reloading x54R yet because I haven't slugged my bores and not sure what bullets I am going to use.

Here is my RC K98 Mauser from Wideners. I've posted many pics of this in it's own thread but it belongs here too. I was a pitcher all the way through college so my shoulder isn't the best, so make fun of my wuss pad all you want, it keeps me from having tingling/numb fingers and a popping shoulder for a week after I shoot!
I've had success with several different bullets in reloading for this, with both IMR 4064 and TAC. The best shooter so far though is Hornady 170gr SST with 46gr 4064. Target is 5 rounds, 50 yards.

Here is my CZ75B Omega with a CGW short reset DA upgrade kit. I love this thing....
Target is 16 rounds off a rest at 21 yards, reloads using Berry's 124gr RN and 5gr Unique.

Guess this doesn't belong in the C&R Forum....oops

Here is part of a small range my friend and I put together on his property, some plate targets we built...Always a work in progress.

...And last for today, a partial family photo from a previous range trip. I hope to have the M1 Carbine in my hands and back in action in a couple weeks.

I like the range setup. Wish I could do that on my property. :) One day when I move to PA perhaps.

Thanks, it's a lot of fun and I'm very thankful that I have a friend with the land to use. He even lets me grab his gator to haul all my stuff down the valley to the range whenever I want. We built a picnic bench from a kit for our shooting bench, and have a massive tarp we put down to catch brass, it's actually a billboard sign.
