    Tomorrow AM I will go and try it out. Might be a hoot, might not. I'll get to try out the Henry AR-7 as well.

    Went to the range with my daughter and a friend and shot the Mossberg. I didnt get to shoot many rounds through as I couldnt get them to let loose of it.:D We were at the pistol range at 25 yards. Once we got it sighted in it was shooting a inch or so groups. By the time they called a cold range there wasnt much left of the bullseye. It's a fun little gun which is what I wanted. No complaints except that next time I will go by myself! The AR-7 shot pretty good as well except it doesnt like hollow points. I think for the money you cant beat it for the fun factor.

    I did take it to the 100 yd rifle range and was able to hit pretty good at 50 yds but the peep sight made it too hard for my old eyes.

    Good to hear that you had a good day at the range GunClinger! Sounds like the AR-7 is doing a job well done, even though it was "held hostage" by your daughter and friend....fun shooting rifle's.:)

    This the target on the second day out. It was at the pistol range at 25 yrds using two mags. The big hole is the Desert Eagle .50A&E. It is a ton of cheap fun. I have a bipod on it and am getting a red dot scope. You will get the ocassional FTF but works well once you find ammo it likes. Thanks to the shooting gods that mine likes my 5000 or so rounds of Remington.
    NEON'S looks pretty spiffy!

    Just plain, 525 to a box of what they call Golden Bullet 36 gr lead round nose hollow points. They were the only .22's available in my area during the hoarding. I hoarded about 5000 rounds of them. Wish my P-22 Walther liked them as well.

    Grouping looks good! Quality is pretty decent? Will just be using for plinking and wondering if range is good still at about 50+ yards out.

    Quality is decent for the price. A S&W is better but they also cost double.
    Havnt really tried to see how it is at 50 yards as I cant see the iron sights very good with old eyes. I am going to try a red dot next week. I will let you know how it works.

    Received mine, and I cant wait to take it out and see how it shoots. The 10 round clip seems a little small, anyone have any luck finding a bigger clip?

    It looks cool, but it's still just a Brazilian made Plinkster dressed up.

    Not for me, but if you like it and bought it, that's fine with me.

    I have one one of these rifles. It is a Mossberg 702 Plinkster Tactical. The gun is alot of fun. Only issue I've had was putting a scope on it. It sets up so high on the rail that I couldn't get it dialed in even after adjusting it fully. Other than that the gun works great. I pd. about 250 for it.
