marksmanship

The gun store guys test their accuracy using popular “ghetto” methods:

Like they said… as long as the criminals keep using those methods it’s just better for the rest of us.

Thoughts?

The deal is incredible if you need to stock up on .22LR.

$6.50 a brick (500 rounds) for Remington 40 gr. lead nose ammo which looks like it’s similar to Remington Thunderbolt … I don’t think .22LR has been that cheap since the 80s.  I want to know what the CMP gets it for, if they can sell it for that cheap and still make a profit.

In order to get that $65 deal you need to get your CMP affiliated shooting club to buy it for you (pay them back or something), otherwise it’s $90.

You can place your order at the bottom of the page – HERE

The description states that this ammo was made for a US military contract back in 1995.  I assume it was for training purposes back then.  Does the military still use .22LR for anything?

This is crazy. Keep in mind someone is also downrange doing the filming:

I assume the shovel is so after they “accidentally” hit the shovel man with an errant shot, they can simply pick up the shovel and dig him a shallow grave.

Dance shovel boy Dance!

In the US we only send photographers down range and say it’s perfectly safe. Sending a photographer AND a guy with a shovel down range is just madness.

Training to compensate for muzzle DIVE?  Wait… what?…

Source – NYpost & NationalPost

The rifles are apparently QBZ model 95 or 97 bullpups.

Not too sure what that little training exercise acomplishes, unless its simply set up to break their spirits when they realize they can’t hold those bricks up for very long.

I’m surprised guy #1 in the 2nd picture didn’t get the cane.  He’s cheating by armpitting the rifle. Guy #2 is just an idiot.

There’s a game up on the YouTube channel of the New Zealand Army:

The graphics are awesome. But… it’s difficult to control, and the 4x ACOG coupled with the shooters asthma starting pissing me off very quickly.

I made it up to level 9 before I wanted to smash my computer to tiny pieces… proof:

The game is at the top of their YouTube page – HERE

The usual interview, swimsuit, and beauty components are still there… but these are the awesome parts:

Marksmanship  (20 points)

In the preliminaries each of the 50 contestants chosen will show their expertise in the use of firearms (pistol and rifle). The contestants will be judged on accuracy, use and safety as well as any additional expertise the contestant my possess.  (This portion of the competition will be taped and edited for the live telecast)

Knowledge of the Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence (35 points)

Each contestant will be asked 3 specific questions that will demonstrate the contestants knowledge of these fundamental American documents.

  • The judging is set to be done by 15 U.S. Military Officers.
  • Part of the price is a Lifetime NRA Membership, and a Handgun and Rifle of her choosing.  Badass!

According to the about page, we can look forward to this pageant July 4th weekend in 2012.

The website is extremely suspect, but the idea behind the pagent is awesome.
