    Some Memorial Day Weekend Fun

    With an extended weekend last weekend I decided to talk Av8tor1 into letting me bug him for the day
    Of course I had to take advantage of checking out his infamous collection and I got to pick his brain a little over lunch. After wrapping up plant discussions we headed to a nearby shooting range where Av graciously allowed me to shoot some rifles and handgun! Having shot handguns before I have to say that I much prefer the rifles! After posing for a Rambo style picture we made short work of some targets. Being an avid first person shooter gamer I have to pleasantly say that the the games aren't too far off from the real thing! Before we knew it it was time to wrap things up but not before a quick stop to a nearby nature trail and waterfall so that I could work on my tan a bit :P
    I'm very grateful to Av for allowing us to come down for the day and welcoming us into his gome and I certainly hope we can do it again sometime! We had an absolute blast, thanks again Butch!

    Enjoyed having ya mate, but you know its bad form to out-shoot someone with their own rifles

    and you left before I could share with you the joys of cleaning your weapon
    I think you had that part planned LOL

    Good times and good friends!

    It's set then, next visit: shooting and cleaning over some bourbon
    I'm sure had we been shooting further away you would have had me beat hands down!

    Sweet! I love shooting! I just got a M1 carbine I can't wait to shoot! Sucks living in California where I can't even own one of those guns your shooting.

    Av I always make my friends help me clean after a good day of shooting! They have to learn it's all part of owning and shooting a gun! Next time he out shoots you just slip some larger grain rounds in there for him or tweek the sight !

    Frenchez, Your lucky you didn't have to clean. That is by far the worst part of shooting and hunting!

    Is that a Romanian AK or a Chinese AK? Man how I wish the Russian Kalashnikov's were legal here, lol. I used to have a Russian WW2 Mosin Sniper rifle. 7.62854mm round. Thing kicked like a muel.
    Hopefully I can join you guys on an outing sometime, lol. I'll have to bring some of my guns and Ammo along to share with you.

    There should be a terraforums meetup U.S.A. somewhere in the middle of everyone. I understand that the BACPS and LACPS have a bunch of meetings and a lot of the members, but that still leaves a bunch of people out...
