    Finally got to go to the range again.

    After quite a dry spell I will be on the range for about 10 days training the Escort and Security Teams. They are a combination of Americans, Brits, Scots, South Africans, Nepalese Gurka's, Indian soldiers and African Soldiers and Police from Sierra Leone and Uganda. Training is done with M4's, Glock 19's and AK's.

    It is quite a hassle here for the ranges as they are now under Iraqi control and on top of that the Iraqi Prime Minister just flew in for a visit so everyone is a little on edge.

    I was able to shoot my AK which as expected had no issues or problems and was boringly accurate. Here is a target at 25 yards shot offhand with the pretty much stock rifle. I have opened the rear sight notch to give a better sight picture but that is it. The trigger is already fantastic.





    The circle is 4 inches I think, it is the bottom of a water bottle. Fifteen rounds in about 20 seconds or so.

    I was also able to run a qual course with my Glock 19. 25 yards, 40 rounds, standing, kneeling and prone. (It is a British course) I dropped one on the kneeling.





    The headshots were part of the class where I explain sight alignment/sight picture. No matter how you hold the pistol as long as you have good sight alignment and sight picture the rounds will go where you want them to.

    These were fired at seven yards, four rounds, one in a conventional grip, one rotated 90 degrees to the right, one 90 degrees to the left and one fired with the pistol upside down. The first three went in a nice cloverleaf and the one fired from the pistol inverted was about and inch out.



    I still have several days and a lot more classes to go but at least I get to shoot for a bit.

    Sounds like an interesting collection of shooters at the range.

    I always liked shooting with people from other groups/militaries/countries, it made for a good exchange of ideas.

    Love my AK (Bulgarian). Glad you got to shoot some today! You just get out of harm's way and back home and that will make everyone's day. Look me up when stateside and we'll either go fishing or shooting. I'm serious. You can shoot anything I've got 100rds.

    Sounds good. My buddy and I are setting up a trust so we may be giving you some business to boot.

    I need a good ride up to N. Arkansas to clear my head.

    It really does Buckeye.

    Some of these guys have backgrounds that are unbelievable.
