I also shoot metalic silhouettes at 250, up to 600 yards away using my high-powered target rifles. I also load my own pistol, rifle and shotgun ammunition, and I am a life member of the NRA.

Any other gun enthusiasts here?
REPLY: I love pistol shooting at the indoor range and go often. My favorite and most accurate is the Glock 45 cal. semi-auto . My concealed carry is S&W 38 special. And my home defense is a Ruger Super Blackhawk 44 mag. with 10" barrel.

I know I had it for 13 and a half years, and only put 500 rounds through it, which is low, I have several other rifles in other calibers, from 223 Remington, to 300 Winchester magnum, that I enjoy shooting also.

The shooting range is The Ben Avery Shooting Facility north of Phoenix, it's operated by the Arizona Game & Fish Department. This is the main range, they got others within the same facility, trap and skeet, 550 yard steel silhouete range, and a 1000-yard competition range.
I took my TC carbine out for the first time today, I won't be showing any groups the rifle was great but the scope sucked, for some reason I thought it was something better, between the scope and not using my rest I shot one inch groups at the best and kept throwing shoots, I've gotten so used to the rest it really messed me up, I did hit gongs at 350 yards. I've now ordered a Simmons prohunter scope and some fine Barns bullets (CA. gotta get the lead out) so next time should be much better, I will remember the rest.

Thanks TK. I fired 3 consecutive shots at a time, with a pause to eject and reload a new cartridge. I had 2 other guns with me that day, the AK-4, and my Savage 110V 25-06, so I'd fire 3 consecutive shots, then set the rifle down for about 10 minutes and use the other ones.

I have a Ruger Redhawk (double-action) revolver in the .44 magnum caliber, and I enjoy shooting it.

One of my handguns is a Colt model 1911 in the .45 ACP, but I'm thinking about getting a Glock in that same caliber.

If you guys can keep a good target in the standing position with a scope then hats off to ya.I cannot,the wobble factor is too much for me.I have limited time in using scopes anyway.I keep thinking down the road I'll get some with scopes but I'm so addicted to surplus rifles that keeps me busy.

Most of my time at the range in the last year has been testing new aquired rifles and different ammo so I mainly do a rest position.I did fire off in the standing position mith my M1903a3 a while ago and hit the bowling pins at 100yds consistantly so that was inspiring.

I'll never get sub MOA groups with a milsurp compared to a target rifle specially using factory loads but I do love those history gems.
