My attempt to make it to my 10 acres in Terlingua Ranch and make a go of living on it. From the start it hasn't gone good at all, but I'm hopeful things will turn around!
Where you holding it tight enough to your shoulder? My son has a couple rifles over fifty caliber, and I don't think I will shoot either of them.
Oh my goodness...that looks very painful :(
DD, unfortunately no. Had my head up my you know what when I first shot it on a stand to zero it in. I shot it 5 times after that the right way.It is MsB it is...
ttnguy,What on earth did you do to yourself?? You didn't hold this gun properly? Ouch, you'll feel this for sometime.Be safe, and have a Merry Christmas.
Yes Sandy, I didn't hold the butt tight enough against my shoulder and it kicked me hard.
Nasty way to learn that lesson. Feel better.Merry Christmas, David :)
Dani, No lessons learned I knew better. We all have rain farts.
Humm... Should have been "Brain Farts".
What kind of rifle is that and how big is the cal?

Mosin Nagant 7.62 54 R Bkid. Bigfoot, I like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mosin-Nagant-Rifle-ATI-Monte-Carlo-Stock-2-7x32-Tactical-Scope-Mount-Rings-/350872129648?_trksid=p2054897.l4276
Unc, wouldn't having less "rain farts" cost less than that? :) Get to feeling better.
I never fart in the rain.
Never? I have a hard time believing that. lol
I thought that was what it looked like, I've got a Mauser that dad brought back from WWII.
I know how you feel, shot my nagant for the first time not long ago, quit after 10 rounds. that metal butt plate.......
Randy, its tough.
It gives you a whole new respect for the fella's who carried those, an M98, or an M1 all day long, firing most all day long. Says something for kill or be killed, I'm sure.
