My first 3 shots, the hardest p[art was trying to figure out how to load it and the next hardest part was finding that front sight. Fluorescent paint coming up next.
Brother just had cataract sugery and has been having some problems with his eyes but he managed to get one on target at least. If he had been wearing different glasses it might have helped but his bifocals were more of a hindrance than an aid.
This is literally the first chance I have been able to shoot anything in well over a month. I got this 91/30 from Slamfire and am very satisfied with it's physical appearance but needed to shoot it. The day I got it I had just come back from the optometrist and could barely see it, when I finally got my eyeballs back I realized those kids shooting this rifle must had had very very good eyes because I can barely find the rear sight notch let alone the front post.
To make a long story short my brother and I fired 3 shots each at these targets with the sight at it's lowest setting and we both had a heck of a time but I think we were close enough to at least make somebody duck.
Wind was blowing 14 mph from the left but I don;t blame the holes to the right of the target on that and I won't make an adjustment till I can try it at 100 yards. We stuck up a couple of 2 liter bottles of ice, made a little Kentucky adjustment and both hit in the center but about 2" above our point of aim.
I am however going to need some input on improved iron or glass for this gun because I do intend to have it with me on my deer stand next fall.
