My brother and I went to our local pit for some plinking. We took the 7year old, the 9mm taurus pt99af, 500 rounds of junk UMC (cheap walmart ammo) and 2 12 packs of "Dr. Thunder" soda from walmart. Good for targets not drinking. Absolutely vile soda. But the cans are red so make a good target and being cheap they are still full when shot so they POP really well. We took some pre made targets and a staple gun. Couple ear muffs and trash bags. We always leave with more trash in the bags than we brought in so the pit will stay open.
It really was just for fun and rather informal. I did however pace off 25 steps and fired 3 rounds into a premade paper target.
This was two handed standing slow fire.
I replaced the paper with 2 side by side colored construction paper and let loose with 30 rounds as fast as I could literally yank the trigger. 21 hits to one sheet. Not a machinegun but fun anyways. My brother took this photo with my camera phone, yet he managed to capture brass in the air, next to my right ear.
Cameron is shown here having his turn at a few cans. Got one for the day not bad. I am going to have to get a Ruger Mark I, II or III .22 cal for him though. Maybe a New Englander survival rifle .22 Something small and light for him. Any suggestions on a first gun? I am picking up a BB gun but I was thinking of the days where we go to the range....
A great day shooting.
