I’ve been entered in a long range rifle competition this Sunday aboard Marine Corps Base Quantico, a competition which STARTS at 800 yards and ends at 1,000. It’ll be the first time I’ve shot a 50 BMG rifle, the first time I’ve shot 1,000 yards, and the first time I’ve had a cheering section. I’ll be bringing Ben Shotzberger with me this weekend to get the feel of a competition (don’t tell him, but he’ll be lugging the rifle and the mini bar around).
Don’t worry, we’ll post plenty of pictures and video of the event. Until then, enjoy some beauty shots of this beast of a rifle. There’s a picture down there with a Mosin bolt for comparison. Epic.
