    My buddy tied up some balloons at 200 yards. Took out my trusty 91/30 Tula hex, and popped one first try. Said can I quit now?

    Har har, couldn't even see the balloon using the iron sights. Just aimed it where I remembered it was when I was checking it out with my spotting scope.

    Needless to say, never hit another one all day, at least with the Mosin. Popped quite a few with my scoped Saiga .223 because I could see them at 12 power. No one else hit one using the iron sights all day. I was the only one.

    I pwned them!

    Isn't pwning illegal in your state?

    Sounds like you had fun Gannie! Nothing better than shooting at reactive targets! I guess that is what makes shotgun games so much fun!

    You misunderstand me, I used iron sights on the Mosin and could not see the balloon. I could see the balloons with the scoped Saiga. It was the fact I shot a tiny little ballon at 200 yards using iron sights that made me a shooting god for about 2 minutes.

    It took two minutes for me to sit back down after I was moonwalking after making the shot.

    Yeah, don't these people realize I can shoot the nads off a fly at 200 yards?

    Well, at least once I can.:silly:

    At least you got out and did some shooting today. Wish I could have done the same though! Congrats on the shot, everyone gets one like that once in a while. I'm still waiting for mine ;)

  18. I bet that a mosin has shot down a Heißluftballon before.

    Nah, it was a long 91/30. Hardly any muzzle flash. Though it was acting like a leaf blower in front when I shot one off.
