(or, A Day at the Range)

went to the range with my family today (except my sister, she was being lame and stayed home) to shoot my dad's custom AR-15. so, here's a few pics.

the gun:

me shooting:

my dad shooting with the flip-up sights:

the targets (my dad got a whole bunch of these from a friend some years ago, so we decided to put them to some use):

for some reason, after my dad zeroed in, everyone else's shots were high...

we went through 5 or 6 magazines, and that gun is amazing, almost zero kick. even my 10 year old brother shot it like it was nothing!

You are shooting it when it's resting on a surface. Try standing or crouching and tell me there is no kick.

They're good guns. How is this zombie survival though? lol

Very nice varmit assault weapon ;D
AR-15/M-16's have minimal kick compared to their predecessor (M-14), That baby had some punch to her, of course it shoots a 7.62 vs. 5.56 round of the AR-15/M-16. I love the AR frame, you can customize to your hearts content.

yeah, get the .22 conversion, and its ready for groundhog, which just happens to be year-round!

ok, let me rephrase that. theres almost no kick when compared to shotguns, rifles, etc. and the only thing the sandbags really do is steady your aim,all the recoil goes straight back. i shot competition in high school, so i know the ins and outs of marksmanship training.

ever since reading the Ultimate Zombie Survival Guide, my dad's gone on a quasi "zombie attack prevention" spree. but he's been wanting to build an AR for a while now. so to justify the headshots, we pretended the targets were zombies.

That first target kind of freaks me out that he's smiling with a gun in his hand.

yeah, i know what you mean. i looked at it and went WTF??? you can kinda tell from the pic, but that gun is so poorly photoshopped on there, its actually one gun on top of another.

Offhand shooting FTW. Sascha... you realize it's already .22 calibre? Why would you buy something that makes it the same calibre as it already is! :dodgy:

Nice AR15, the one I've always shot was the carbine style, with the short barrel and hand guard. Has about the same kick as the overgrown pistol, the M1 Carbine. :p

actually, its a .223. this the the .22 conversion:

yeah, it sucks that you cant own a true AR like that in cali. some guy came up with this (www.californiarifles.com) to get around that, but it looks kind of tacky for a rifle, IMO.

Actually.... you can own an AR15 in California so long as it meets a looooooooooooooong list of requirements! I just prefer not to deal with it altogether, and have all my stuff up North in Washington or Nevada. ;)

Sascha, Sascha, Sascha.... .223 = .22 calibre. The only difference between the rounds are 3 THOUSANDTHS of an inch and the grains. :p
