Just wanted to say thanks to suprmatic and magnumair for coming out and bringing their toys and letting me play with them lol it's nice having local shooting buddies that have cool toys LOL

If anybody is ever interested in heading down to the Niagara area for some shooting, send me a private message and I can arrange to take you out to the range.

Nice shootin' everybody! That M1 Carbine is a thing of beauty!

RVD - You looked like you were leaning back a bit.. when firing those pistols. Try leaning more into them, recoil may be easier to control ( not that you seem to be having a problem :) ) Maybe more accuracy as well!

Everything was looking great!!

anthony you're right, i was leaning back a little too much, it's a bad habit i have when firing pistols. I tend to use my strength and my grip to hold the gun and forget about the right posture which is like you said, leaning forward,but that's only for pistols.. with rifles i'm fine as you can see with those 110 yard shots i pulled off :wink: lol

Those are some really cool videos. That M1 carbine is espececially nice! I'm guessing that it's restricted?

i don't think so, if i remember correctly the regulations made that M1 restricted by 1/2" .. I could have swore suprmatic told me he changed the barrel. You're better off asking him about what barrel he used. Whatever he did, it's done right.. He doesn't do half buttock jobs on anything.

No, it is not. This particular carbine was badly bubba'ed when I purchased it - someone had attempted to sporterize it , and when they brazed the front sight ramp to the barrel, it warped the last 2" of the muzzle end of the barrel. The home-made stock was pretty fugly too.
I got the gun cheap, so I set about restoring it to as near "original" as possible. The barrel is a brand new, US made, reproduction - but in a non-restricted length. The stock is a USGI, and is a slightly reshaped M2 carbine stock - the "guppy belly" has been removed, but the selector slot remains.

It was interesting to see the difference in recoil between the different pistols.The 9mm definately looked the most manageable.That Ruger .44 seemed much more pleasant to shoot, than the Model 29 S&W I used to have. There's nothing as good as the Ruger's "Ploughandle" grip, to absorb the formidable recoil.Nice guns by the way.You guys have the same taste in guns as me.If I wasn't on the west coast, I could have included my model 98 mauser to round out the shooting fun.

RVD! Tsk tsk tsk! That eye protection won't do you any good sitting on top of your head! :?

Magnumair! Tsk tsk tsk! How did you miss the above safety infraction?! :?

Suprmatic! Tsk tsk tsk! Didn't anyone tell you royal blue hearing protectors and hunter orange caps don't go together?! :lol:

I applaud your efforts at getting out there and volunteering to host these "C.A.F." shoots! I'm going to have to make the drive one of these days and bring some of my stuff!
