I know. Just irks me about some of the firearms regulations is all.




So, aside from skeet/trap, I rarely shoot firearms anymore. I keep saying I want an AR platform. But, the cost is prohibitive right now. So, I shoot archery instead as it's a longer hunting season and more enjoyable for me.


(Posted in another thread) Did some shooting the other night with my coworker who's sponsoring me.

The bow (Mathews MR7):


The release (Tru-Fire Hardcore Max):


Typical results after shooting the 10th group of 5 arrows:


Switched over to my back tension release (Tru-Ball HT3) as I was feeling restricted by the use of a wrist strap release:


Was my second time ever shooting it, and back tensions are very finicky while you're learning to shoot them. First group with it:


Second group:


Final group of the evening (shot about five groups of five arrows with the back tension):



I know I'm a little low on the target with my back tension. But, I was focusing on form more than accuracy.

Free float means that the barrel does not touch the forearm of the gun. Some are more pronounced than others. I have a get that just have a forearm so you have something to hold onto. Others look like they touch but they don't. If you take a dollar bill and slide it between the barrel and the forearm, you should be able to run it all the way back to the receiver. If no, pull it apart and sand it down a little bit.

Love it. Significantly more than my Hardcore which I thought was the top of the line. The back tension releases take a bit to get used to. But, to me it's much more of a natural release in that it goes off without anticipation, or thought like a trigger. With a trigger release, it's draw, sight-in, hold, trigger. With a back tension, you take away the intentional thought of the trigger.

There's so much more that a good back tension adds to form and technique, I'll most likely switch over entire to this for both target and hunting.

I'm waiting til they get the tech done for the left side charging handle. Thinking a 416 piston kit and a fluted 10.5 barrel. Put the bitch on a diet. Swap out for monolithic rail and there are some one off unobtainium parts. I have a prototype maker working on some parts. See if he can do it or he makes me some junk.

6-6.5 k or so if I had to guess. Been through a couple classes where we ran 2 k in 2 days. I was rusty as hell today. First time out with a heavy jacket and gloves really takes some getting used to. The new gloves are a no go. Too bulky for the glock trigger guard. Wife was on fire though. She was hitting everything with all 3 firearms I had her shoot.

The 12Ga was fun to watch, I let her shoot a high brass magnum turkey load first, then a low brass dove load.
