    I went to the range today. Its an outdoor facility with alot of members. I am also a permanent member. It was one of those days where nothing could go wrong. I also was introduced to a new product by a friend for my rifle shooting. It is exceedingly helpful in Florida's humid weather in out door ranges, where one's spoting scopes, rifle scopes, binauculars,etc, get fogged up.
    It cleans all optics with no mess and is awesome.

    Here it is.

    I also used by Smith and Wesson 22 pistol,which is the first gun in my signature line. Here are the results on this 6 inch target at 25 yards using standard factory sights. The range master invited me to compete. No optics or extras were used by me at the 25 yard level. I only used optics on the 50 & 100 yard with my Remington 597 rifle. Sometimes you just have a good day. Remember, this is a 6 inch target at 25 yards using factory sights only.

    It was a great day indeed. I did some Glocks as well as many other firearms. I saw a couple on really nice SKS rifles and also a few odd ball Winchesters.

    Not implying that they shoot oddballs or that the people who shoot them are, but rather that these had customized stocks that were very unusual in that I have not seen them before. Not a slam against a fine gun maker like Winchester at all. Hope it clarifies.

    We'll look forward to seeing your groups. Good luck shooting.
    Also, I agree with everyone about Marlins. This is why I have two.
    I have the model 60 SS and SSK. See my signature line. Marlins are awesome.

    I agree, SG.

    My very favorite is my Marlin 39. It has always been a real tack driver for me.

    Wouldn't trade it for all the tea in China!

    Welcome to all the new members:

    Glocknut:
    The top pistol is a Walther P22. A buddy let me shoot his at the range. I had to get one. Best and most accurate .22 I have ever shot. Take my word for it, if you like Glock, you will love Walther. Don't take my word for it. Shoot one and then I guarantee you will buy one. They are around $350
