I was searching for a nice place to shoot and wanted somewhere besides the range and considering that Panoche is still closed, I had to find another outdoor place where they allow target shooting. Well, after a week of searching I found it and went ahead.

About the shooting spot
The place is cool, we were the only ones there. I'm guessing the maximum range is 100-130 yards (uphill), if you're shooting level it's probably 60-70 yards (I'm just guesstimating). There's no furnitures, no big T.V.'s, no computers or propane tanks. But it does have it's share of shotgun shells. I just had to pick-up my own brass and trash.

The Rifle
First off, this is the first time that my AES-10B (RPK clone) tasted ammo so I was a bit anxious about shooting it. First impression with it is that it shoots straight (Brown Bear), I mean wherever I point it, the POI is where it's at. It's a bit front heavy (bipod and heavy barrel). The trigger is sweet (tapco g2):D, better than my 1000lb. pull DPMS LPK in my AR-15.

I don't have pictures but I have a video to share so bear with me. Oh and I was killing a lot of innocent tin cans.

I got the AES-10B from Oaklanders group buy thread http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=63049


Here's the vid.

Nice. Time to learn how to work your Mosin's bolt with the rifle on your shoulder, though. :p

Can I have the secret to where this place is?

LOL! You're right, I noticed that when I went back home and reviewed the vid. At the time that I was shooting I didn't even think about it.

I'll PM you the name of the place and you're a big boy now so I don't have to tell you to pick up after yourself:p

Heh, my neighbor makes trips to the scrapyard for extra $$. I'll just drag him along with a big bucket and a rake. You won't recognize the place. :chris:

That's what I need to do next time, just bring 3-4 buckets and a rake to clean out the place.

nice video, the music reminds me of a clip from DBZ movie, Bardock The Father of Goku.

Cool Shingami!!!

Glad you like the rifle!

Yes, I've probably already put about 400 rounds through mine with not even one hiccup. . .

Nice vid, too!

:D
