I spent a few hours out in the National Forest so I could test out a few rifles I haven't shot yet, and spend some time with the trusty m1 & 1911. Everything went peachy- beautiful weather, nothing broke, no malfunctions, no scumbag maniacs running rampant, and the guns made me look like I know how to shoot.

All targets @ 100 yd from a sandbag
The Harvester m1:



Here's the m39, never fired since importation. I spent all night cleaning the cosmo. I whiffed the paper the first 5 shots, figured I was shooting over it. I started to bring it down, and once I found the sweet spot POA, it was all over the bull.




And finally I brought out a JPS K98 that I've never fired until today. Same deal as the m39- I was clipping the top edge of the paper while using a 6 o'clock hold. I brought it down and peppered the paint. What a fantastic rifle, Sauer & Sohn were on top of their game when they made this in '41. A beautiful bore, masterfully machined & silky bolt, this thing is a keeper.

1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms... It doesn't matter how many Lenins you get out on the street begging for them to be taken.

Very nice shooting!  thumb1

I love the stock on that IH, beautiful patina.   Is your M39 "D" marked for the larger diameter Russian bullets?

The only issue with this post is that the gun/target shots only tease us with a shot of the trigger/bolt area of these fine rifles  bat1  :))

I would rather live my life believing in God, and upon my death discover that He doesn't exist, than to not believe and upon my death discover that He does!!!

Thanks everyone. Those targets are currently on my refrigerator, right next to the finger painted recreation of Starry Night that I made.

Some of those pics look like cell phone pics. Unacceptable, considering my life's goal is to make Ansel Adams look like a hack.
Here you go.
