    AR-15 Range Report

    Well, I finally got to take my AR for a range trip today.

    What a blast! I'm hooked! It was a beautiful morning...no clouds, not to chilly, no wind... damn near perfect. I was able to shoot about 200 rds... all at 50 yrds. Pictured below are two buddies of mine that I went with...



    I was also able to try out an Aimpoint ML2 optic... Here are some pictures without the Aimpoint... and with the Aimpoint on my AR.



    And a picture of yours truely...

    It looks like that aimpoint was a good purchase!

    Looks fun! Glad you like it!

    Nice shooting! Sure wish you lived out this way. In addition to the AR, we could come up with a LOT of fun guns for you to shoot.

    JS, is that a public range you're at there or someone's own personal playground? I'm looking for an outdoor range to shoot at and if it's close enough to me it may be worth checking out.

    Hey, how far are you from Phoenix...? I may be in the area in a few months. I'm making plans now to go out there for a couple of weeks. A good friend of mine lives just outside of Phoenix and I'll be staying with him and his new wife. I plan on going to a few places while I'm there... Grand Canyon, Lowel Obsrevatory, etc.

    It's actually a "members only" type of place. The two guys I went with are members and from what I understand it's really hard to get a membership, but I'm going to try like hell.

    If you get out here before I deploy, shoot me a PM. If not...I'll be at Fort Bragg until April! Make sure you go to the Ben Avery shooting complex while you're here.
