    I am almost embarrassed to post this video. I wasn't holding it right, you're supposed to "hug" it in closer, pretty much parallel to your shoulders. Apparently I missed. At least I tried. I'll get right on those dry fire sessions. CLICK the image to get to the video. Sorry, it's how Photobucket works.




    I hear ya on the double/triple/quadruple check. I always look as I'm "charging," and check for a magic appearing round. If only they made a dry-fire device that would fit mine. They don't, as far as I can tell.

    Hey, you are not off to a bad start, and have a great rifle to learn on. Might get a 22 to practice with a little cheaper, and if you want to get real good real fast, look into Project Appleseed.

    Will do.


    Hey, I can blame the front end hardware, yeah, that's it. It's the "add-ons" keeping that rifle from sitting right. I *am* working on reducing those and "extras" in other areas. Lots of loong walks and stuff.

    Here is my wife with my Garand, no "ping" but a good shell in the air, and the action hasn't reloaded yet.

    That's cool. I GOTTA find my camera, dammit! I *HATE, DETEST, LOATHE* moving!


    I noticed a definite difference in how fast the action moves on the carbine versus the AR. The AR is slow, and you can hear each step happen. On my carbine, it's fast, and kind-of blurred together. I'd love to go on youtube and find some slow motion videos of the action cycling. I'll do that later.
