5.2 Seconds...

 
 Around January, the Local Range had there annual dinner, where in the cost to enter was a raffle ticket, and there where various prizes. Ammo, knives that sort of stuff, and a certificate for a Belt Fed Machine gun Match. You can probably see where this is going to.

well about two weeks ago I called and verified my entry for this months Match. and he told me and Dad what was going to happen. and said something along the Lines of "Oh Yeah, You'll be shooting a MG-42". Mind Explosion.


And Yesterday was the day of the match.  When the family arrived to the High-Power Range, he showed me the basics of the weapon. How to load, clear and move the gun. then he showed me how the Gun worked on a tri-pod and He let me sight in the MG.

The Match Was shot in 'short controlled burst'. so it wasn't entirely 5.2 Seconds, most of the match Was hitting a 1X1 orange plate at 100+ yards.


It was A Really epic experience. It was my first time ever shooting a belt fed and is was really cool to be in the presence of such a historic weapon.

E-Postal MAY

Sorry For Being late with posting this.

I Present The DOOM Target


based From the first 'First Person Shooter' (FPS) DOOM*. This target has * different Things to shoot at. From the 1 shot death Imp to the Cyber Demon himself.

You can Download the Target here
You Can Download and Print The Score Sheet here

There Is a 20 Shot Limit.

Pistols: 25ft/10 yds or range minimum which ever is greater.  Standing unsupported, one or two hands. No time limit.

Rifles may be shot any position including off the bench, but rests such as sandbags and bi-pods are disallowed.  The fore end of the rifle must be supported by the offhand elbow.   No time limit.

  • Rimfire, both iron sights and scope: 25 yards.
  • Centerfire iron sight & scope: 50 yards 
Classes:  shoot anything you want and we'll find a place to record the score. (I reserve the right to draw the line at RPGs Or BFG 9000).

  1. .177 cal air pistol, iron sights (air or C02 powered)
  2. .177 cal air pistol, optic sights (air or C02 powered)
  3. .17/.22 cal rim fire pistol, iron sights
  4. .17/.22 cal rim fire pistol, magnified optical sights
  5. center fire pistol, iron sights
  6. center fire pistol, magnified optic sights
  7. .17/.22 cal rim fire rifle iron sights (25 yds)
  8. .17/.22 cal rim fire rifle magnified optic sights (25 yds)
  9. center fire rifle iron sights (50 yds)
  10. center fire rifle magnified optic sights (50 yds)
  11. other (anything that doesn't fit the above categories)
Non-magnified optic sights (e.g. reddot) count as iron sights.  1:1 "RedDot" sights might be slightly faster to align than normal iron sights as there is only one sight to get on target, not two.  But speed is not a factor in this game so it's a wash.  Take your time and make good hits with either system.

You can Submit Scores to me at
Smallestconservative-at-hotmail-dot-com



*Note: This Target is not affiliated With ID Software or the 'Doom' Franchise


Update:
I was notified that the link to the target was down. I think that is fixed. if it still is a problem you can E-mail me at   Smallestconservative-at-hotmail-dot-com and I can e-mail the PDF of the target back to you.

NRA Convention day 3

 Reporting live (again) In the press room at the 142nd annual NRA Convention.

today is not as crowded as yesterday or friday, Yet it is still very busy.
so far of what me and the family as seen was a free mini concert infront of the FN booth that the crowedsoon invaded two other booths for. (pics to follow). Red Jacket Firearms(as seen on TV) FN,

Updates soon to follow

Update:


Got a Few good Pics from this years convention,


We found a Bus With a Minigun.
Hippies Worst Nightmare.
 And Mini -Guns
Bad joke I know..

 Also found a three barreled shotgun,


The Breech

Barrel

I believe it was a Chippa Firearms Triple Crown 12 Ga.  I thought it was interesting that it weighed no more than most of the Over-Unders on the floor. Im still Questioning If the shotgun can be used for Sporting Clays or Skeet.


As I said before, FN Herstal hosted a mini-concert with  Mark Wills where Played two songs, "19 something" and "Looking For America" then gave away a 9mm handgun  and signed copies of his new album.


And While there I of course had to drool on the SCAR's , P90's and Fn2000.
War-Face. PNG
shiny!

   DPMS Brought a trailer of AR-15s

And I again found a AR with a cross-bow attachment,

And two odd colored


and a Saiga -12

To end this Post, I give you a panorama view Houston from outside the press room.

It was a good convention this year. Texas was fun.
See you all for Indy 2014 next Year!

NRA Convention :Day 0

     Just arrived in Houston Texas for the annual NRA Convention

I would have liked to say there was no issue with TSA. but of course the whole family was pulled aside for an "Random Screening". because as everyone knows, pasty white people are Chechen separatists. so after that minor inconvenience , we enter the monsterish line . A few minutes later, for added entertainment ,some lady who had to have been drnk enters the line kicking a garbage bag along the line yelling slurred f-bombs and worse, at one point even abandoning her stuff altogether. eventually she falls down and the TSA fenced her off from the public. the last that was seen of her was Phoenix P.D carrying her away by her arms and legs.

 The flight its self was uneventful .

  We thankfully arrived to Huston early and was able to meet with the other bloggers. Snooze Button Ronin taught me and mom how to eat crawfish. it was fun.

Tomorrow starts the convention, should be fun!
