Home on the Range.

 Kyle and I finally got to the range to work on his technique and over-all shooting today.  Got to spread the suppressor love to some guys who's .22 scope had just backed out of its mounting grooves.   Cost me 200 rounds of Wolf Match target but they were shooting a four inch group at 100 with my very quiet 10/22 in no time.  Worth every cartridge.   Suppressors make everyone smile.  They ought to cost 30 bucks and be in blister packs at Walmart.  Fun shooting off the bench at 100 with various AR, 22, dot sight combos.  Sorted out which barrel to change on the match ARs and worked the play AR with suppression and subsonics a bit.  Even shot .22 at 200.  Kyle shot his AR10 shorty.  Loud.

  Just a note: hold 40 inches over your Wolf Match 100 yard zero for .22 at 200 yards.  15 inches below your match .223 ammo holes is the impact point for suppressed/subsonic 77 grain Sierras (driven by 4.1 grains of titegroup pistol powder with a CCI 450 magnum primer) at 100 yards.

  I knew you needed to know.

  Finished up shooting 100 yards at full-sized silhouette with Kyle's Glock 21.  If you aren't practiced up to shoot zombies one-handed at 100 with a plastic .45....well...what are you waiting for?  Cheap ammo?

I hope to be able to stop the zombies before they get to within 200 yards.

I think you have to let them get a little closer than that to see the blacks of their eyes first.

Nah, just go for the headshot on the first zombie and the rest will jump on him. Then you've got time to pick your shots.

Never give a zombie an even break.

I'll take em starting at 1000 yards... I can't hit @#&( at 100 yards with a carry pistol :-)

Oh? We're limited to carry pistol only?

I'm thinking black gun in either .223 or .308 and several large capacity magazines, possibly with a decent scope on it and a sound suppressor so they cant tell where the shot is coming from.

God bless our troops, especially our snipers.
