Sunday at a shooting-range

Some friends of my dad’s invited him and me to a shooting-range to fire some arms. It was great! Further more, I got to shoot from a sniper rifle (don’t know the type, unfortunately) which was super awesome. One of the guys promised to take more fire arms next time we go for a shot. Hopefully I get to shoot a chaingun or a bazooka next time :D

Ota, entering the shooting-range premises and unpacking his firearms:

Me, my dad and his friends started on a pistol short shooting-range with a Glock and a Berreta 9mm:

However, the long (200m) shooting-range is where the fun really started:

I got to shoot at 150m and 200m targets with much worse results then the rest of the lot, but still hitting the black spot, which felt great! :) The kick-back of the Remington 700 cal. 308 was overwhelming, really, I didn’t expect that at first actually (hence only the last 3 shots out of 4 hit the target, at first :D ). The smaller rifle was a CZ 452 ZKM cal. 22.

As I said before, it was a great experience and I’m really looking forward to the next time we go shooting. I highly recommend it to anyone who admires weapons and all kinds of armory as it is mandatory that you understand the power and responsibility you hold at your fingertip.
