I would... but my Nagant already has a marked tangent sight and it's not windage-adjustable. Maybe I'll go anyway to see if it's accurate at those ranges. Thanks for the info.

Hey, how much is it to join the FRGC? I know you need two member's recommendation, but we already know somebody who could recommend us, and maybe if a kind THRer could help, if we decide to join ;)

From my own personal experience as a range officer for "sight-ins," I would advise range officers to wear body armor.

No slam intended on the Northern Virginia hunters. Stupidity is everywhere.

Just make sure not to hit the baffles. Have they installed them on the Valley range?

"Hey, how much is it to join the FRGC?"

Glue crisp new $100 bills to every part of your body and throw yourselves at the feet of the membership committee.

The more $100 bills you can get to stick to your hide the better... :D

It's a tad on the expensive side...

I heard they will give you a significant discount if you paint yourself brown, wear an antler hat, and let the charter members hunt you with paint ball guns...

And just how is that is different from being a range officer? :neener:

Monkey, the difference is that as a range officer you wear an orange hat to give a better target picture...

Can I bring my AR and ACOG?? Since the NRA Range is only 50 yards, I would like to do it right??
