Howdy from Alabama

I was born and raised in Texas. I've been active duty Army for about 5 years now. I currently call Fort Rucker, Alabama my home for another 2-3 months before I'm headed to Fort Hood, Texas. I've always been a gun nut. TSRA/NRA for life!

    Remington 700 VTR in .308 with a Pentax 4.5-14x42mm on Leopold base/rings. The bipod is a Harris knockoff but it does the job. Shot it for the first time today and held 1/2"-3/4" out of the box with Federal Match 175s. I was definitely impressed.



    This is my baby. It's a CMP Bushmaster AR-15. (Jewel Trigger, hooded sights, cheap Simmons 3-9x50, 1 in 8 Krieger) It's almost 10 years old now but it'll still shoot sub 1/2 MOA all day long with handloads. I used to shoot NRA Service Rifle with it, but after I joined the military I didn't have much time to attend matches any more. It slowly just turned into a deer/varmint/paperpuncher rifle.

    You ever see any deer when you make a hot run?
