Sorry for the large pictures-- that's how photobucket sends them. I'm sure there's a better way, but that's what I've got for now.

It was a beautiful day in south Georgia (my in-laws in Ohio are submerged in snow), and since I had caught up on some Honey-do's, I decided to go to the range. What's more, my wife said she would like to go with me! So, the oldest boy watched the other four while we went off on our own.

We started off on the .22 Anschutz-- it's my wife's favorite rifle. Although it has the circular front sight (couldn't find the post), she was hitting some pretty good shots. Our range has quite a few falling plates, including some dueling trees, so there's lots of interactive targets available.

I started out on the Walther P22-- a very frustrating gun for me. It is very inaccurate, but I still continue to shoot it hoping it will get better.:banghead:

Mrs. Insectguy had better luck than me:

I moved on the the Ruger MkII Government model, which Mrs. Insectguy is shooting here:

....and did very well, as usual. That's a very fun gun-- point and click. The red dot scope makes aiming a joy, and the gun is exceedingly accurate, even with cheaper ammunition.

She liked shooting the Dan Wesson .22 revolver, but didn't like it only held 6 rounds. (Yes, she wore glasses when actually shooting).

After spending more time on the .22 handguns, we both moved to the other end of the range, and spent some time on the AR. I was having trouble getting a bead, so she spotted for me, and got it dialed in. Those bowling pins didn't stand a chance after that!

Since we were there, we moved on to the Ruger 10/22's. We took turns spotting for each other at 50 yards-- what fun. She told me that's what she really liked doing-- high accuracy shooting on paper (a long-time love of mine). Gotta love her!

She also wanted to spend some time shooting the 9mm, since that's our primary home defense firearm. Yes, I know it's not a .45, but she's a little taken aback by the recoil of a .45. So, better a gun she will shoot, than one she's afraid of. She also really liked shooting the NAA .22 Magnum.

We then went back and forth between the handguns and rifles, for a few hours. Much lead was thrown, much brass fell to the ground, and many holes were drilled in paper from afar.

Then she modeled a few times for me (yes, it was cleared, and there was nobody else around). Digital cameras are great. :evil:

BTW, if you wish for her to model your firearms, please send the firearms and I'll take the pictures. You'll get them back.... eventually.

I'm jealous of your range! Seems like the perfect place to plink with .22s all day!

Insectguy,

I'm unable to send you my firearms at this point in time, but if your wife is willing to model them , she is welcome to come to me. Don't worry, I'll be a perfect gentleman.:D

Looks like you had a great day at the range.

Jubei
