The forest is open..finally

Discussion in 'The Powder Keg' started by Snakebite, Jul 20, 2002.

  1. Since we had some rain the forest service opened up the place I shoot at. Went out early this morning with the 2 Mosins I havent shot yet. I was a little concerned about the front sight on the Hungarian M44 because it is moved WAY over to the left. I brought some tools with me in case I had to move it but it shot perfectly. It has the easiest and smoothest trigger of any of them. I could hit a can at 70 yards every time. Then it was time for the 91/30 Tula. That one is like a new rifle. It shoots dead on at 100 yards and has real tight groups and no flyers. The trigger took a little getting use to because it is a hard pull. This was the first time I'd shot the S&B ammo and thats what I'm using from now on. Those 180 gr. soft points pack a whallop. Of course I had to throw a few hundred rounds through the SKS too. That Tula wasnt cheap but it was well worth the money. It shoots great! :assult:
     
  2. Congrats Snake!
    Where do you live that you can shoot cans in a National Forest? I live on the edge of the Ozark National Forest & Buffalo National River but never heard of shooting ranges being there. I know they frown upon stealing baby pine trees but.....

    Just curious how that works. <grin>
     

  3. Hey Cranky, What? No shooting range in the national forest? You must have WAY to many trees to make a shooting range. We just shoot over the tops of the cactus. Lots of that in Az. That new Tula is a real shooter. Almost got me a deer while out shooting. The problem was I was riding my dirt bike down a trail in top gear when a deer jumped out in front of me. Startled the heck out of me! They sure look big when you are closing in on them at 50 MPH on a dirt bike!
