Well, I'm heading out for a week in Illinois.. To spend some time with Panzer's family and Vitaliy.

We're going to do some shooting, though not too much. I think I only have about 4k loaded rounds with me.. I wish I had more! :cry: Were going to shoot 45, 9mm, 10mm, 5.7x28, .22, .223, 7.62x39, .308, 7.5x55, .378 Weatherby, and probably a few more I can't remember!

Wish us luck!

I'll post pics as soon as I have them.

We're meeting at Vitaliy's house at 0800 and heading to the range from there with a truckload of ammo, several cameras and a video unit.. Should be fun, although I hope I don't embarass myself too much.. :D

I'm sure you won't! Have a great day, wish I was there!

The aftermath of a hour of shooting... Were we being attacked by a division of bowling pins, we'd have slaughtered them :D

Soluce shooting a Tsar manufactured Mosin Nagant (1916 manufacture with 99% or origional markings.. The Soviets only removed the Imperial Crest, everything else was left intact).

What happened to a pistol target when we took the AR's, AK's, and Five-seveN's to it.

Vitaliy and Soluse have many more photo's and video. Hopefully in the next couple of days I'll have those to post as well.

It was a great day, even though the drive was 3 hours from Vitaliy's house :) It was also very windy and cold. But who cares!?! We were out blastin' away, and I don't care who knows!!! ANY day spent shooting is a good day! :SS

Looks like you all a great time and a great day. Congrats and thanks for the videos!

03-17-2007, 11:37 PM
Those are some real sweet vids, I wish I lived closer to you guys.

03-18-2007, 02:08 AM
What realy made the day was Vitaliy welcoming us into his home for some very good borsch and Vodka after a fun filled day of celibrating what it is to be an American. We drank to good friends, good shooting, the Motherland and to the hords of golfballs that died that we may have fun

03-18-2007, 08:32 AM
Thanks for sharing your great day. It really looked like it was a BLAST! he he.
So... Did you all spend the entire next day having a gun cleaning party? :)

Only a few hours.. I shot so much lead that my HK actually stopped locking up... And it takes a LOT of lead to do that to an HK.. :D I think it took me about 20 minutes to clean it up decently. When I get home it goes in the ultrasonic bath.
