Subnet Visits Old_Painless and We Go Shooting

My buddy Subnet sent me a note this week and said he was bored and wanted to make a road trip. He asked if he could come visit me. I told him, “Sure!” But it was a long drive, as this is Texas.

How Easy is It to Shoot 30 Shots Into One Group

A couple of days ago someone on AR15.com posted a picture of a guy on another board that showed a small ragged group and said that he had shot this 30 shot group at 100 yards with his AR-15.
