Took the howa out on sunday and spent about 40-50 bucks on ammo. I also took out the .22lr rifle I bought, but that damn thing didn't fire. From what I could see the firing pin isn't striking the rim enough. There was only the tiniest black mark on the back of the round. Here's some pics:

Here's my fiance, yeah, she closed her eyes.

And, our target. After all this abuse it still talked.

Don't worry, we kept everything clean. Also, here's a video I took of my buddy matt shooting it. The third shot wasn't that quick, I just accidentally paused recording between shots.

Pssh my wife is born in the bay area and went to college in Alaska. For a tiny little woman she does handle my Barrett and Mosin quite well. She just can't shoot as much, but she is accurate!

Its hillarious... I'll always try to get her to practice loading snap caps in my glock, and I can tell she wants no part of it. She's only interested in who got kicked off of americas top model!
