I headed out this morning for a day of shooting at the Pickens County Sportsmans Club. Took the 4095 and plenty of ammo. Great fun.

50 yds from a rest. 4 types of ammo, 4" bullseye, 4095 is wearing a Vortex Sparc from another gun.
American Eagle 155 FMJ
PPU 180 HP
Winchester Target Pack 180 FMJ
Accustrike HCA 165 FMJ aluminum cased ammo from High Country Arms

Struggling with the eyes, but groups were ok. Gonna get some glasses for shooting.

Center group is American Eagle 155
Top left PPU 180 HP
Top right Win Target 180 FMJ
Bottom right Accustrike.....no idea where 5th shot went. This ammo grouped pretty well, but consistently had a big flier every now and then.

Bottom line, this is a very good little carbine.

After shooting at 50 yds, changed targets and set it up at 100 yds.
I thought .40 bullets would drop a bunch, so I aimed high. To my surprise, they went right where I was aiming. (American Eagle 155 FMJ) hole in the red was luck-and not where I was aiming.

I am sure I can shrink this group, and ones above with practice and some glasses. However, I don't have big hands, and my hand covers the top group. Great little carbine!

Many pistol rounds still have a good trajectory at 100 yds. Past that, it decays rapidly... but 100 is still fairly flat.

No Offense intended but I shoot 100 yards with my Phoenix .22 and the short barrel and hit targets 50% of the time. Gallon milk jugs mostly. The other 50% are so close I'd call them a nuisance shot if the jug were a perp. The nuisance of being hit with a really pissed off bee (pea?) might wake them up to the fact that they are being shot at. :Smile3:

No offense taken. Just got some glasses, and am ready to go do some more shooting with better results.

Some of my old military/Vietnam buddies and I had a reunion in Montana in October. Great fun. Whisky consumed, guns shot, trout caught........it was a BIG time.We spent one day at the NEMO gun range shooting all their products. Fantastic rifles. (Google NEMO) neatest range I have ever seen.

We shot pretty much all the guns they make, in lots of calibers. My favorite was the .308.

Final thing we did was shooting a .300 Win Mag sniper rifle. We each had 5 shots at a gong at 1000 yards. I hit it 2 out of 5 shots. Misses were close enough the guy would have wet himself. Only one other guy hit it twice. That is a looooong way!

I'll get the carbine figured out directly.

No! I wasn't implying you were shooting bad... :oops: I was meaning to imply that the carbine was not that accurate. :groan:

Ya see, I don't own one....so the rules :rules: say I have to make fun of what I don't own... :whistle:

Sounds like a lot of fun at that Nemo place. So does the whiskey drinking (although not my hard liquor of choice).

I now am burdened with tri-focals. Talk about moving from a crack shot to not being able to hit a barn...well it turns out I did hit my barn but that's another story. :neutral: Either I can't see the front sight, the rear sight, or the target. I have to chose.

When I was militarized way back when and was on the qualifying range, I made the required number of shots around the right hand barrier. I was born nearly blind in my right eye which it made rather difficult so i took my time to be certain I hit where I aimed. It's a very lazy eye. I shot dead center on all my other tests except this one where I never even hit my silhouette target. This flabbergasted the training instructor until the man to my right was being chewed out for firing too many shots into his target! :whistle: He had a perfect group at the heart area but the others where scattered all over. I heard him say he was aiming at the head. :whistle: I was aiming at center mass. Mystery solved. Maybe... ;)

No problem at all. I am just hoping the new glasses help a little.
My favorite NEMO rifle was the .308. This is the group I shot at 100 yds. Sadly the rifles cost thousands and thousands of dollars. Scopes too

Getting old does suck, as bad as bifocals. I've been considering Lasik so I only need readers.

My youngest son, now 38, had worn glasses from the time he was 8. He had about 20/300 uncorrected and had the Lasik done about 3 years back. Didn't get 20/20, but about 20/40. No longer has to wear glasses at all. I've thought about it too, but I'm too much of a chicken to let them mess with my eyes.

I guess I'd have to get the mirrored shades in my prescription. I'm 20/350R, 20/450L. 1 pair for driving, another for working on the computer, and to see something up close, I have to take them off and hold it about 5 in. from my face. A friend of mine that wore glasses and was almost totally blind in one eye had it done. They got his good eye to near 20/20, and managed to get his bad one to about 20/50. First time he had seen with both eyes since he left the Corps.

If you have the cash, it would be worth looking into.
