Default A Little Plinking Today

After breakfast (small group today), did some plinking at the local range.
The M1 Carbine, it's the closest to a rifle that I like shooting the best.

Top first 5 shots, adjusting the sights. I just don't have that young man's accuracy thing going for me anymore, at my age, I think I held my own.
Using peep sights at 75', could be better, but not too bad.

I've never been to a gun range my entire life. 58 years old. I wouldn't mind trying it.

Habit forming. But, go with someone that can teach you the rules, technique, etc...

Noticed that most of the holes are on the target's left. What are you trying to tell us Norm?

The C6 in the front of the pic of the cars looks like an Ecklers catalog threw up all over it.
