    I have been looking around this site for a while. awesome site!!!! so i figured i would register....

    I shoot mostly .22lr because its cheap and super fun gun)

    Anyways i figured you guys would get a kick out of this


    The picture of the target is actually upside down from when shot, it was on the edge of a 50 foot cliff so i pulled it back to take some pictures

    Considering how low the BC and velocity of the .22LR are you've done real well.

    Congrats.

    And I was proud of myself for hitting a 4" plate at 230 yards. Very impressive shooting indeed.

    Awesome
    I used to shoot my .22 at a 15" plate at 400 yards. I never tried any further as the probablitity of a hit due to the rifle's accuracy would be almost luck. You seem to have it down pretty good. That is one of the best ways to practice your wind calls.

    You have very cute daughter. My daughter is 4yrs old too. She hasn't been to the range yet, but has played with my boys red rider. She will be a shooter for sure. Nice shooting with the .22LR. I like playing with them as well. What for ammo are you using?

    I went out with clayne today and watched him hit 9 out of 10 times at 500 yards. Damn good shooting. I took my 10/22 and only connected 2 times out of 10, but it was my first time. Fun stuff!!!
