New post.....finally

Been a while since I last posted. I've been taking off the end of the year to attempt to let my shoulder heal a bit more, so no workouts and no shooting since the first Saturday in December. Shoulder does feel a little better. Doctor thinks it's just a touch of tendinitis left over from tearing the muscle. So, just a couple more days and I'll be back shooting again (first Saturday in January at CCSC). In the meantime, been enjoying the holidays. Hope everyone got what they wanted for Christmas. My favorite toys so far have been my Kindle Fire, and my Black and Decker 1 cup coffee maker.

Today, I took my oldest son to Shooters Express down in Belmont to celebrate his 16th birthday which was on the 27th. I took him to shoot some of the full auto's that they have. We started out with a H&K MP5:
We didn't get very far with it. Seemed like it didn't want to feed rounds very well. The range master had warned us about it, but we decided to try it anyway. After a few futile minutes with the best being a 3 round burst, we switched out to a Colt M16 in 9mm:

The gun we shot did not have the barrel shroud, so ignore it. This firearm ran much better, although it was only semi-auto or full auto, no 3 round burst like the MP5. Because we had so many issues with the MP5, the RO gave us a 15% discount on the ammo. I like Shooters Express, just wish they weren't over 30 miles away, otherwise I'd go there more often. Anyway, here is a pic of my son holding the Colt:
And a video of him dumping some rounds full auto:
And finally a video of semi-auto fire:

Well, that's it for me. Remember, shoot safe, shoot straight!
