    Was the grouping just as good? 1200yards is a long way for sure :)

    Mate 1200 is fire and hope :P all done with iron sights and no magnification

    This is where I'm going to do .22 this weekend/next week (50m and 100y) expecting group sizes of about 5p size and 10p size respectively

    I'm not bad at cooking/baking. Alright squash player. My main talent is this:

    Prone target rifle shooting. Fantastic sport that gets unnecessary bad press. This was part of a 100 at 25 yards indoors with a .22 rifle

    Nice grouping. I'm won't kill anything I won't eat but it seemed like a good idea to not post the pick of a tail I shot off a squirrel.
    Bolt action or semi auto? Traditional or ar type?
    I had to track down a magazine fed bolt action 22 just for subsonic rounds.

    1200 yards prone with iron sights?!?! Damn.
    All my heavy long guns have bipods and I can only get a group with two of them at that distance. Granted its easier with the one than the other and it better not be a windy day. 06 and 7.62x51 respectively.

    Only ever shoot paper :mrgreen:
    Currently for short range (up to 100yards) I'm using a fwb 2700, single shot bolt action rifle. The first hit on google images (the silver one) is what it looks like

    I don't hunt but do make many inanimate objects suffer. Friggin squirrels in the attic chewing wires up have to be discouraged somehow though and the bb gun they just laugh at. Non lethal I figure. The tailless ones stay in the neighbors yard.

    Nice looking rifle.

    Holy cow batman!!!! That thing cost more than my dpms sass , first scoped one on google.
    Heck, even with the exchange it cost more than my first 5 vehicles. At least tha ammo is cheaper than 50 cal so you save in the long run LOL

    I'm intrigued. How do you make inanimate objects suffer? I thought I was the only nut job who locked their cell phone in a dark closet when it behaved badly :D

    It's not mine, it belongs to the club I am president of.... So I get first dibs. Dunno what price you found :P we picked it up for £1500 second hand and in target rifle terms that is a bargain. That's the only downside... Everything is super expensive :cry: Ammo is ~£7 for 50rounds which isn't too bad

    Yours looks sweeeet. I'm seriously considering living in the us when I retire :mrgreen:

    Lol. I posted picks of my Xbox 360 and a dell monitor a couple pages back. And a lawnmower. I had great pics of my old cell phone mounted to a tree with a crossbow bolt through the display. Unfortunately the pics were taken with the replacement phone which has since been replaced...
    In a pinch thermite workd wonders as well.

    Did you just say you'd retire to the us? *whoot whoot*

    Someone said something nice about the US on a forum... somebody bronze a babybooty :-)

    We have great laws that protect hunters and marksmen.

    Scribbling, drawing, baking ans pretty much every thing that shoul look cute/awesome in the end.
    The one 4-panel painting is based on a Cyanide&Happiness Comic, the rest is Simpsons, mlp, adventure time and my last wound-makeup tutorial. We had only one "finger".

    Like you see in the top left, my handwriting is ironically very awful.

    I love adventure time!! Haha that is really cool!

    The two prices I found were 2500 used and 3200+, nz currency. You definitely got a deal. About the same price for the sass new without scope. Granted I got a super deal on a new one before the latest round of pro/anti gun nonsense made prices skyrocket, slightly more than you paid... Not counting scope of course. Prices are Starting to come back down to reality now but as a stay at home dad, another fire arm purchase is a long ways off for me. Heck, for a while a box of 100 22 lr was selling for around $20. .223 went from.25 a round to $2, 7.62 x51 went from $1 a round to $4. I've been lucky in that I've only bought 4 or 5 guns, the other dozen+ were all gifts. Somebody also gave me a couple hundred rounds of Canadian army 7.62 x51 for cleaning leaves out of their gutter. Yep... One gutter.

    Want retire to the states? I know a few who would love to retire to nz. I'd be tempted if it wasn't for that ant that kills you the second time you get bit. Fire ants hunt me down enough here as it is. Especially when firing from the prone position. Lol.

    I can't even find a fwb 2700 for sale in the states. Be advised not all states have the same gun laws and some like California are quite restrictive.

    I am good at breeding animals (my job) but as a hobby I usually ride motorbikes.
