A Range with GRASS!

Must be nice to leave the kneepads at home and play Gunner on a luxurious lawn like that.

Of course, when they're ankle-deep in ice water in the winter, I'll not be so envious!

























He's lucky he didn't get shot by some zombie-phobe!

    The one thing I noticed was her stock is adjusted very close to the rest of the gun. Mine is further out away from the gun. Is there a way of measuring the correct distance? When I adjusted mine I went with the shotgun rule: put in crux of elbow and very tip of pointer finger touches trigger.

    I've only got one rifle with an adjustable stock (so I'm no expert). Go with what's comfortable!

    Actually, I'd suggest you shorten the stock some and practice some "air-gunning" in an elbows-down stance. I noticed that sometimes you cock your elbow out almost 90 degrees perpendicular. Jon taught me a cool tucked-in stance that the pros use to facilitate movement/shooting. Aim both elbows down while supporting the receiver just ahead of the magazine with your off-hand instead of gripping way forward on the handguard. Maybe I can get him to model some pics for ya.

    Oh, yeah...if you're air-gunning at home, make sure the drapes are closed. :)

    That holding position I learned from Mike, the Navy marksman, who was at the range when I first shot the AR. I was holding it like a shotgun and he told me that was incorrect.
    Anyway, I've been thinking alot about that, and before we do the next match I want to get a vertical grip and cheek piece.

    If you could get pictures of Jon in the position you recommended that would be great! I'm a visual learner, so seeing what you mean would help me alot.
    Thanks!
