I took the Enfields to the range today and drug my son along to.  He's enroute to Ft Benning GA tomorrow.  We both fired the Enfield #4 and the L1A1 Enfield.  Had a ball shooting clay pigeons @75m  &100m.  Can't beleive he out shot me!  I think I've converted him with my #4.
We shot my  all USA parts L1 (FALUSA) My piston drive AR15 and my AK 47.  Even threw in some 45auto from my Wilson Combat.  Both of us forgot cameras and both of us forgot cell phones so we didn't get any pictures (dang it).  By the time we finished it had gotten to 103 degrees with 65%humidity. 
 
So we stop the first place we came to and got water.  All in all a very good day for both of us.

He'll be training to be a Depot level Bradley Systems Mech.  91M .  He's been in the army for 6 months and (because of other issues) is just now getting his school.  He spent 8 years with the Marines and came over to the Army for a promotion.  hehehe
I ran around in a Tank for my 21 years in the Army.  Better luck to him.

If He goes to Ft. Stewart let me know ...I can get him and Stan together ...Since He is into Guns and hunting ..Him and Stan could become great Buddies ..Besides ..Stan is a Federal Wild Life and Fishery agent there on Ft. Stewart ....He knows all the good spots to hunt !!!
