It is a horrible picture isn't it? I know a guy with out a lower jaw as a result of a shotgun discharge (his was intentional and aimed at himself) but still. It is not pretty.

Which tubular magazine firearms are the big offender for accidental discharges as well, since it is more difficult to check and clear them, and if you don't have the plug cycling out all 7-8 and checking to see the carrier, and a clear chamber often results in failure.

Uncle even shot the window out of his truck with his 30-30. He since moved to only box magazines, so that he can dump the loaded magazine, cycle the action and check for clear quicker (farmers and woodchuck shootings)

Went and shot the new poly 357 and was really impressed with it's performance. Oh, and it's recoil is VERY manageable, 158 gr HP's were a breeze... i put 37 of 40 in grapefruit pattern at said 20'. Not to bad for it's first outing.. i also was sighting in my 30.06 and this guy had a few really nice rigs.

the muzzle break on this one would blow your hair back and i was 2 stalls down.. lol


then he broke this one out


my buddy sighting in his new .223 bull barrel on his Thompson Center


a good day of shooting was had..

No FMJ ammo allowed? Are they afraid of hurting their dirt berm?

Yea, i thought the same thing.. but apparently there is a gas line/wells right behind the berm. I thought he was kidding.. you can shoot fmj's on the pistol range.. just not on the 100.

This one is just a fun shooter, if you were a police officer in the city in 1921 this might have been your weapon. Smith & Wesson regulation police in 32 long.

Any opinions on the CZ 455 series for .22lr? Probably aiming towards a "Lux" for iron sights to get started and I like the possibly adding a .17hmr heavier weight barrel later. Really looking for a relatively inexpensive but not cheap .22 to do some lower cost than .308 bolt action shooting. Mildly related topic, any opinions on the Walther PPQ for general "casual" use and maybe a few tactical pistol classes?

I have a 452. I think the 455 replaced the 452. If the 455 is like the 452, it's a winner. For the price (actually for twice/thrice the price), it's hard to beat a CZ 452. Hopefully the 455 is the same.
