3 newbie's @ 482 & 1,121 yards

I was able to take three men out yesterday for some long-range shooting with specialty pistols.
One was 17 years old and the other two were in their 30's.
All three specialty handguns we were using were XP's in 6.5 (two 6.5-284's one reargrip & one centergrip, and a center-grip 6.5WSM).

Two of the guys had never shot a specialty pistol ever before that day.
Watching them all hit steel consistently was a joy.

In fact, there were no misses by anyone at 482 yards.

It nice to help what some may consider almost impossible, to become not only possible, but easier than they would have imagined.
