    OMG it was good.... I think we need to ban golf so we can buy the golf courses to use as rifle ranges... :p:D

    There is something so spiritual about firing a shot at a 450 yard steel target, seeing it hit & then hearing the hit a few seconds later. :eek::D

    I was using a rental gun as I’ve never dipped my toes into long range shooting before. I was using cheap brass Federal 55gr FMJ’s & a 20” AR with Athlon Neos scope in 4x12-40. So not the fanciest of rifles, but I was making it sing like Johnny Cash.

    Now when you get there, the majority of this class is a PowerPoint presentation that gets you familiar with the basics of these long range shots, ballistic calculators, windage, ballistic coefficient, rate of twist, etc.:confused:

    So do not feel bad if you get there & your head is like “I’m not smart enough for this, I just saw “Quigley Down Under” too many times”, that is only normal, you will get it. ;)
    Ryan & Steve are phenomenal teachers and if I was a richer man, I’d be training there daily. :D

    If you are unfamiliar with long range shots, they have a huge number of rentals you can try, with any number of scopes with everything from MOA reticle, to Mildots, all kinds of brands, calibers & powers...

    I can’t stress how much joy I got today... If any of his neighbors ever want to move, I may want to get their property to have such awesome neighbors. ;)

    It’s the truth, and it’s sad but now that movie is ruined forever... 900 yard shots with no glass, no ballistics apps on a phone? :rolleyes:

    I’m calling BS... :(:D
