Oh man this afternoon spent a few hours in the beautiful late winter sunshine here in northern New South Wales Australia knocking over metallic turkeys at 100m and pigs and rams at 75 and 50 with open sights.
I must have put 150 rounds through. Love that it is not about grouping and that you get instant feedback from the clang or the wobble or the knock down.
Loved the short barrel carbine with quick action and soft recoil. 158g cast coated bullets doing 1580fps with Adi 2205.
Great fellowship with club members lots of laughs.
Only will be topped tonight when the Wallabies beat the All Blacks in the Rugby.
Aaah beer o'clock already?

wish i was there, just finished 13 hours cutting meat
The silly wets are great fun with a lever. I knocked a few over last time I was out at the range just to get rid a few old 45-70 handloads & factory rounds. The look on some peoples' faces when 4 targets are knocked over as fast as the lever can cycle, is priceless.
Quando omni flunkus moritati!
It is indeed good fun. I spent an afternoon last year with Juddy (Ramslammer) at Westbury doing just that. Must contact him again and get more involved in it, because as I already said, it is good fun.
Love people and use things. NOT THE OPPOSITE.
