    hmmm

    I knew there was a reason I didn't shoot open sighted, and today I realized what it was: I suck at it. I mean really really bad.

    Today I got out finally, and I'm a good shooter (prob not great, but good), but my front sight was the width of 2 of those targets at 50 yards, so forget it!!!

    I tried prone at 25, because I didn't want to drag the stump all the way over (it's big, it's my shooting "rest"), but that didn't go very well.

    I stood at 15 as that's my usual critter distance and I did ok, but didn't shoot very carefully I was impatient by then. I can keep it within an inch from there though, if I really go for it. I got two within the (1-inch) x-ring each of the 3 targets I shot. Hey, not terrible right? Good enough for treerats.

    I'll post those pics once I get a chance.

    I'm tapping my receiver and putting in my weaver rails (Weaver 61M fits Romanian M69 well enough, it's got a plain flat bottom) so I can be sure of my scope, then maybe if I get any time I'll make that stock.

    More later

    wow

    Just looked at kep's again, nice shootin man. Esp at 25.

    Yeah something tells me my factory sights are more designed for shooting humans (training anyhow) than 4" targets.

    You'll be putting me in a distant 3rd for 25 before too long. I mean distant.

    I gotta get a scanner!

    Thanks fellas. Thats the first time I've shot with open sights in a while...a long while. For some reason the eyes just don't focus like they used to...I keep hearing a nasty rumer that I'm getting old. Or as my loving daughter says...old and decrepit! HAAA
    I'll keep practicing tho. Its kinda fun shooting at something that you cant see but know where it is.:D
