So I took my trusty Hipoint carbine or to the range yesterday.
We set up a 8" gong at a paced off 100 yards.
I wrapped the sling tight around my support arm, assumed a seated shooting position and took careful aim through the red dot sight. POW! Clang.
"Holy crap did y'all see that! "
First shot out the box and I nailed the shot. Well after that it was easy. I rang the crap out of that gong.

I must've been having a good day because I managed to ring that gong with my 22 rifle and iron sights, first shot.
Then I hit it with my R.I.A. TCM 9 mm pistol and a Keltec PMR 30, you know the 22 mag.

I also smacked it a few times with a scoped AR15, but that almost doesn't count because it's so easy.

Hoping my buddy emails me the video soon. I hope he caught the Hipoint in action.

Yeah Amp We had a blast.
It's pretty confidence inspiring to know you can reach out like that and the rifle will still do is part well pay normal intended ranges.

I went shooting today -- it was only 105F and we had the whole desert to ourselves.

I'm mostly playing with new loads. I found a couple of old boxes of m1 carbine 110 gr bullets I'm going to shoot up in the Stevens 30-30. My first load seems okay but I'm going to mess with it some more. This is going to be plinking ammo

I've got over 25 pounds of empty .40 s&w brass and no .40 handgun so ... I'm experimenting with loading bullets to low 10mm charges and seating long so they'll feed from the 10mm magazine. They worked great ... as long as I loaded only 7 in the magazine (otherwise the first round nose-dives). I'll play with this one some more. It was cool to shoot the 10mm and not have to worry about the brass; it's more plinking ammo.

I picked up a new magazine for the 50 DE and wanted to make sure it worked. I came home and loaded the last of my .50 bullets.

Somebody left an old basketball out there and my son and I bounced it all over the desert with all 3 of them.

It wasn't a real serious day.

Shooting is just a good day, seriously or not.
As long as no shots are fired in anger it's a very good day.

This is only the second time I've gone shooting with this particular buddy do it was extra cool for me to be shooting so well and able to impress my new range buddy. :-)

I just knew when I hit that gong first try out of the 45 carbine that nobody saw it or noticed the gong ring. So when I hollered out "Y'all see that?"
Justin and his wife both claimed they saw it happen.
Usually when I do something really cool nobody sees it.

In Marks G20 Glock, he got a .40 barrel for it but still uses the 10mm mags with zero problems...

I know a couple of people with 10mm Glocks who shoot .40 in the 10mm barrel and never have a problem. My 10 is a 1911 so the cartridge rim slides up behind the extractor and fires fine. The empty cases look like any other non-Glock (bulge-free).
