Note to self: In the future, remember to put on glasses BEFORE you get unburnt powder in your eyes. Dohh, that stings!

Chris, that's me shooting my 1911 with the gloves on. The other guy with a 1911 is cslinger. The young lady standing near the piles of gear is sheslinger.

I'm not sure which is worse, "Drop and give me 20," or "Dial and give me 30."

Mikey --- what a marathon!!! tell ya what - some are very similar - you could leave out odd ones I'd guess.

Great shots -- impressively clean, well-timed and nicely composed.

Oleg, thank you; coming from you, I consider that the highest of compliments.

29 and 30 are of me, shooting someone's .41mag, apparently mid flinch. Chalk that one up as one gun I dont think I will be buying very soon. I dont need to be putting down Bull Elephants within 25yds. But to the gun's credit, I hit a propane tank 2-3 times @ 50yds. Couldnt do that if my life depended on it with my Witness...

shooting someone's .41mag

That would be mine. You wussy.;)

Steelharp
June 8, 2004, 11:42 PM
einnor, I'd like to 'fess up to being a member of the wussy squad. I thoroughly enjoyed :what: the two shots I fired with that thing... enjoyed it so much, I don't EVER wanna do that again! :)

Ahhhhhh... .41 Magnum. I shot 6 rounds through Einnor's revolver and would do it again in a heartbeat.

Wish I coulda been there with the BFR and .454 Ruger!:evil:

BryanP
June 9, 2004, 12:04 PM
Einnor's .41 is a nice revolver. I wouldn't want to spend the day shooting it anymore than I'd spend the day shooting that 8mm Mauser but it's a fun little boomer.

June 9, 2004, 12:36 PM
It is just a matter of getting accustomed to it. I can shoot my 8mm Mauser all day. I will say that adding a recoil pad is probably the reason why I can shoot it so many times :D

Wow, all those guns in one place. Must have been a bunch of crimes committed, right?:rolleyes:

Moparmike
June 9, 2004, 04:04 PM
Well, I had to keep the bayonett locked up, otherwise it tried to attack "the children" for some reason. Dangerous, thems is.

Wow, all those guns in one place. Must have been a bunch of crimes committed, right? Nah, but what was really funny is that we had more guns at the range than the gun show had that morning! :D

Oleg Volk

I just added several more photos (http://www.olegvolk.net/gallery/arms) and one of Steelharp's 1911 on my M1911 page. More images coming soon. Unfortunately, I found that 1/100-1/125s shutter speed is not enough to stop movement, and that 1/250 doesn't always do it, either...and I am really annoyed by the lack of sharpness of my 28mm used to capture the group photos.

Steelharp
June 12, 2004, 09:30 AM
Wow, Oleg... you and I MUST get together and talk photography... it's definitely my other "shooting" passion... great shots...
