    Went shootin\' today!!!

    I went to my dads and we got out to the range and he starts pullin' all these rifles out because he thinks I should use a different gun for elk ( I use a 270) so I tried my dads 350 magnum ( nice but didn't feel right) then I shot a short barreled 45-70( nah to short) then the 50 caliber( don't feel like playin' Jeremiah Johnson, single shot and all)Then the ol' man breaks out the ELEPHANT GUN, the 458 magnum (so after being KICKED by the elephant 3 times)I thought (ahhh just right) but damn my shoulder is startin' to sting.hehehehe, this is the same gun that blew my brother right onto his ass, man I wish I could of been there for that one .../forums/images/icons/laugh.gif ELK here I come ..../forums/images/icons/shocked.gif

    I hear you with the elephant guns. Me and my dad have two. One is a 45-70 guide gun, and the other is a Siamese Mauser converted to 45-70. That gun is a beast. It will take the highest pressure 45-70 rounds out there, and I have loaded 500gr round nose (metal sleeved lead core) to about 200FPS less then 458 Win. Mags. That thing will knock the piss out of whoever shoots it, but I feel sorry for whatever it hit. I did a penetration test with those rounds, and the bullet went threw 4 4x4 posts, 2 2x4 boards, and about 6" of dirt. It would suck to get whatever got hit by that.

    I go out to a shooting range alot. I usely take my .50 cal Deasert Eagle. Sometimes it's the 9mm or .357, I like the hand guns. I do like to shoot off the pistal grip 12 gauge every now and then. Sometimes a friend will bring his rifles. He's got a trunk load of WW2 guns.

    Nope. My 12 guage and my truck are calling me, and I can't respond for 3 more weeks. I am miserable. I am going to have to get the AK with the Cypress Hill out again. This time I might have to get out the 100rd. drum for it. Maybe the AR-15 too. I am feening for some gunplay, and runnin things over with my truck.

    That's the gun Dirty Harry used in the movie 'Dirty Harry' to try to take out that freak on the roof of the building.............man that is some firepower. Made his .44 magnum look like a .22..............BOOM
