shooting my FNH FNS-9

Just out with a buddy this weekend do some shooting and honing in my pistol aiming. The furthest target is about 50 or so yards away using my eyeball range finder, target itself is 8" round, shooting uphill. Every since learning to shoot with two eyes open, my shooting has gotten way more accurate. I actually have more fun with the pistols than my rifles.

Hitting an 8 inch target at 50 yds with a pistol is pretty darn good. Years ago I could manage that, Now my go to is a 12 ga with 00.

Late 80s, early 90's bunch of us used to go to the range on our days off to plink and compete. We thought we were the shiznit until an old man (mid 50's) set up some pistol targets at 100 yards, pulled out a custom 38 Super on a 1911 frame and proceeded to rapid fire bullseyes... He was warming up.
Then set up targets at 25, 50 and 100 and nauled all those on alternating shots with his 45 service pistol. He was an off duty Texas Ranger.

Thanks. Now that I can hit that far, I need to hit it more consisntantly. This Texas ranger, would his name happen to be Cordell Walker, Texas Ranger? :lol:

LOL, I don't remember his name. He was much more intimidating than Chuck though. I've talked to plenty of people in law enforcement. TxDHP, detectives, Army MPs, DIS, OSI... but this guy...
He wasn't mean or belligerent. Nice guy. But the look in his eyes.. you just knew that if you were on the wrong end of the law you couldn't run far enough or fast enough, he could find you and put you down in a heartbeat. I knew that day that if I was ever in a position where the Texas rangers were looking for me I was turning myself in.

Cool stuff. I love hitting steel at distances with a handgun or rifle.
These links have write-ups and pics of most anything you ever will do on a 2.6 Isuzu. Engine, brakes, suspension, interior, you name it! Enjoy!

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming...
WOW--What a Ride!
