    If I had someplace to shoot one of those, I would have had one long ago -- at the National Matches a few years back, Armalite had them on sale, just a few bucks over their cost.

    I live in South Texas. Plenty of places to shoot, and no one to bug me about a pistol grip on a bolt action rifle.

    a 1,000 yard range is pretty hard to find tho.

    There's no sense in having a 50BMG if you can't shoot that far. I have a 1000yd range nearby, but the OHNG doesn take kindly to just showing up and shooting.

    Y'know, I've never bothered to check, but there's a range at the Natl Guard base nearby. Don't know if they let retirees use it or not.

    We usually go out on hunting leases and shoot (I don't hunt just for clarification) just so we can get the distance. The local ranges top out at 200 yds.

    Which base?
    Check with the texas rifle assn. I'll bet they hold matches there, as 1000yd ranges are hard to come by.

    I've noticed that a large number of people -- especially hunters -- are amazed at how far you can shoot accurately with iron sights. Hunters wouldnt think of taking a shot at 200yds w/o a scope, but highpower shooters -start- at 200yds.

    I think that I changed my mind, If I can have fully functional hand grenades, bazookas, rocket-launchers, land lines, cannons, and a stash of 70 fully-automatic machine guns, I have no objection to your having that gun. Oh. By the way, I was treated for severe depression a few years ago I feel a little bit edgy today. I think that I should get back on my medication but hey, I have never been convicted of a felony yet so I can still have all those weapons (provided that I can afford them), right?
