    Some overseas visitors

    Just back from the range with brother-in-law, his son and his son's girlfriend. They're over here from 'the rock' (American Samoa) for summer holidays and to organise a study visa for 'the island' (Hawaii). Being born here they have to come home to the embassy here to organise it. The two lads have shot before as brother-in-law had a firearms license, but it has been quite a while. The girlfriend was objecting to having to fill in the ticket to shoot with the excuse "But I've never shot a gun before." Like that was going to get her out of having a go?

    So I got them all to start on the 22lr at 75m, then progressed them to 100m with the 243, then finished them off on the 7mm Rem Mag at 100m. Well, anyone want to hazard a guess at who shot the best?

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Lemme see ........... Who could that be

    Maybe the one with matching chromosomes.

    The one who's never shot a rifle before and maybe listened more carefully to the instructions.


    Cheers

    Yes Rushy. She even managed to get under 1 MOA with the 7mm RM while my nephew was about 4 MOA. I suspect he was closing his eyes and he'd be about 3x TR's weight.

    I should teach myself to shoot. Oh, ... wait, ... I did.
