First off, let me say that I have not fired a gun of any kind in over three years. I couldn't remember the last time I zero'd in my AK so I decided to take it out tonight and do a quick test. This is with irons and yes I started up pretty close. I like to work my way out. The first picture is 10 yards and used Golden Bear and Golden Tiger. First three shots were low so I put the rear sight up a notch. I believe I have a tendency to shoot low as you can see I stayed just below the center ring. I was still thrilled as hell that I was keeping it very close. The second picture is at 15 yards and jused only Golden Tiger. I didn't adjust anything and I got better at my breathing. As you can see, I did get a few in that center ring. The last picture which is a tad fuzzy (sorry) is a game I like to play of putting rounds into the black circles. Again at 15 yards and Golden Tiger. The first shot I don't know what happened, I think I wasn't firmly holding the rifle and it bucked. For some odd twist, the last round landed right next to it. I was glad to hit the circles for the most part. Next time I will hit them all in the black. After I get this one down, I got a target with nine smaller circles! I packed up after that with a great feeling. I know that I have to do most of the adjusting and let the rifle do it's job. I tell you, after smelling that first round, such a thrill to finally be back doing what I love. I hope to move out to 50 yards but since my eyes aren't the best, I probably stay around 20-30.
