Range Report - The Monkey Has Been Shot

My wife doesn't cuss, but when she gets the urge to, her favorite phrase is "Shoot a Monkey!". In preparation for a trip to the range Friday I printed out a paper sock monkey target for her. Here are the results at 10 yards with her EDC, an M&P Shield 9:


The sock monkey was pronounced dead at the scene.

My 19 year old daughter used her mothers Shield to turkey hunt at the same distance:


The turkey was butt-shot, then gut-shot and finally decapitated. The flyers were from her shooting with the standard 7 round magazine that isn't long enough to get a good grip on the gun. Once she switched to the extended 8 round mag the turkey died.

Holiday tip: Paper turkeys taste better with lots of cranberry sauce.

My daughter also had fun hunting milk jugs and soda bottles with my MSR-15 and my VEPR-12.

Moral of the story is: Mess with my girls at your own risk. :guns:
