    Well, i went to a rifle range over the weekend.

    Here is a pic of a .45 caliber slug i found lodged in a piece of wood.


    And here's the front and back of my favorite target:

    Much as I dislike guns...shooting ranges can be very fun things. One day I took a TV which had offended me greatly to the range and had at it with a friend's semi-automatic. Blew up real good!

    I came across a TV dumped over an embankment when I was a teen in MS. It was a good day because I had my .22 with me and I thought I'd finally see the exploding TV of my dreams. I was testing CCI Stinger bullets, which had just appeared on the market, and burned through quite a few of those pricey things before giving up. Those hot little Stinger bullets just blew themselves apart on that picture tube. I went back another day with a friend and more firepower but someone had beaten us to the TV.

    Gosh, I don't have any guns. All I've got for self defense and target practice is a rapier wit and sarcasm. Don't feel like I'm missing anything! My sister has enough guns for any 10 of us, LOL! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    I must meet your sister.

    The holes in the book were made by the Springfield M-21 Tactical .308 caliber. It has a muzzlebreak, butt pad, and a 20X scope that still allows me to use the iron sights. It also has an adjustable oak stock, and the barrel is bedded in fiberglass for minimum stablization. It's been proven to hold .45 of an inch at 100 yards. Which is impressive, as the bullets are already .308 of an inch. I'm very proud of it.

    Springfield is good at what they do. i prefer bolt guns and levers for hunting but semi-autos are great for killing time, paper and milk jugs full of water at the range.
