Met up with Elk Creek and put some rounds down range

I had the opportunity to travel a bit northward recently and hit the range with Elk Creek at his shooting club. Had a blast shooting both some great firearms and the breeze, concluding with an outstanding lunch in Fort Collins. I took a lot more photos, but here are some that stood out to me and can speak for themselves.

Entrance to the range, some bums decided to stand next to the sign.

The range, featuring target boards out to 220yds and steel out to 550yds

Offhand with the AK, moving targets are a blast!

Didn't get any photos shooting it, but my G34 made a showing

Trying out the Range Officer. The factory trigger on that gun blew me away

Shooting at the 220yds gong (the tangent sights, BTW, are accurate out to 500m at least, which is as far as we could test them)

    Hmmm, that front sight looks decidedly un-fiber optic. :tooth:

    Looks like a great time was had.

    That was fun! Great pics. Any time your out let me know we will head out again.
    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    Good stuff with good people.

    Matt, when did you get the G34?

    Meeting up with fellow/sister forum members is always a good time, even better when you get to shoot.

    Amen on this. It would really have to go a stretch to get any better 'n that!

    That is fixed now... The Warren rear sight, however, I'd rather not talk about on an open forum. :fiddle:

    Back in April. I originally planned to shoot both it and the M&P for awhile and decide which one to keep. I still have both if that tells you anything.
