Just a Leisurely Tuesday PostPosted: July 16, 2013 | |
i decided to take a step back from “game talk” today and decided to have some fun. as i sit and type this i’m supposed to be asleep, but at 1100 i found myself wide awake. i sat watching tv for about 30 minutes and said-
“fuck it. i’m going out for vietnamese food then going to the gun range.” which is just up the street from the vietnamese joint. but first-
i’ve never understood women’s rabid obsession with purses and shoes. but whatever, it’s like a woman trying to figure out why i sniff my fingers after i scratch my balls. like the sun is sure to rise and set, it’s just and inexplicable factoid of life- leave it alone.
then i saw it. and when i saw it, i knew i was going to buy it. FUCK the price, this baby’s coming home with me. and she’s a beauty, AAAAAAND- she’s functional. meet my new purse….or satchel. whatever. indiana jones wore one.
i needed this bag in order to carry it into the range.
i decided to bring the following ladies with me: Amanda, Evangeline, and Una.
loaded up the car, housed a bowl of Bun Bo Hue and headed to the range. i filled out my paperwork, they checked my ammo (steel casing isn’t allowed), got my hearing protection, my targets and was on my merry way. the facility is tit’s too. been waiting anxiously for it to open up. if you live on my neck of the woods, you should check it out; you won’t be disappointed.
-what did i learn?
been a minute since i’ve shot, so i need to start going more often, i’ll probably get a membership as i get free access and merch discounts. also, as far as gun handling: the LC9 recoils like a bitch. which isn’t surprising since it’s so light and small in comparison to my P95. but at 10 yards i was decent with body shots.
the AR shoots like a beauty. smooth, very little recoil, but i’m definitely rusty. the guy in the next lane was firing an AK-47, and the bang was fucking loud as shit, even with hearing protection. i have a laser sight on it, but i need to adjust it. when i went to iron sight, i was MUCH more accurate. next i’ll run my distance scope and take it out as far as i can on the range.
then there’s the MAC-10. holds 30 rounds and is heavy as shit. but, the heaviness reduces the recoil. it’s most definitely a close quarters weapon as it’s too cumbersome for me with distance shooting. but from 10 yards, i was dead on. never really been good with 45.acp, but it’s fun to shoot.
after running though 4 30 round clips of AR, 1 clip of .45, and 5 magazines of .9mm; i decided it was time for some REAL fun…..
of course head shots matter the most, so i brought it to 10 yards and ran head shots. i was best with the AR (duh), the .9 recoiled too much for me to be accurate. interesting to see how i do when i bring the other 9 that holds 15+1. and the MAC was too much for me to hit the head, and by that point, my arm was sore. lol.
i can’t stress enough that a man learn to handle and shoot a gun. you don’t even need to own one. most ranges will rent you a weapon and give you instructions on gun safety and basic use. a good range will usually have a RSO (range safety officer) to assist with any issues you may have. gun ranges also make for a GREAT date that’s inexpensive.
