My Hobby: Shooting
I grew up spending many, many long hours down at the bayou a few houses down from mine shooting, my pellet rifle. Hours upon hours of pumping it up and shooting one shot at a time, at tin cans bobbing in the water, and setting up all kinds of targets for myself along the shore line. Days upon days and hours upon hours. I particpated in the National Rifle Association’s shooting program for young guys like me, and loved every second of it. I had gotten away from any kind of shooting for many years, until my sons got into it with Boy Scouts, now I’m hooked again. I’m a member of a local rifle and pistol club and love getting away and spending some time on the range with my rifles, shotgun and pistol. My pride and joy is my Daniel Defense M4 Carbine, chambered in 5.56 NATO.
For gun geeks, here are the details, from muzzle to butt stock. he bipod is a T-Pod front grip.I’ve got a Trijicon ACOG on it, TA31 BAC, with a donut reticle, mounted on a LaRue mount. I’ve got a BCM Gunfighter charging handle, and a GL-Shock butt stock, along with a Vickers Blue Force sling. I use 30 round PMAGS from Magpul, but for display purposes here, I’ve just got a 20 round USGI aluminum magazine in it. My other guns include a Remington Express Tactical 870 shotgun, a Glock 17, a Ruger 10/22 and a Ruger Mark III Huntsman, and a Springfield Armory 1911 -A1 .45.
Fun times! Thank God for the Second Ammendment. Molon labe!
