    Took my dad and brother to the North Fork gravel pit on father's day weekend. It was my first father's day ever. Shot more than 1,500 rounds between the three of us. Aside from the redneck burning tires and shooting from their truck while it cirlces the fire, it was a great day shooting. Here at a LOT of pictures.

    My brother and hist AR-15


    Shell casing being ejected.


    Great to see my dad and my brother enjoying themselves.


    My dad shooting my AK-47.


    Another angle of my dad shooting my AK-47. Note the shell casing in the upper right hand corner.


    Dad laughing at my brother shooting his PTR-91.


    Dad shooting my recently acquired Glock 24C. Great shell casing shot.


    Another shell casing in the upper middle edge of the picture.


    My Glock 24C at the instant after firing.


    My brother watching dad shoot my Glock 24c. There is a shell casing in the air somewhere in this picture.


    Great action shot of the Glock 24c cycling while firing.


    Another shell casing in the air. Upper middle of the picture.


    My brother in the background again.


    Shell casing looks like it will hit my dad in the face. Forced perspective camera trick.


    The BEST action shot of my Glock 24c that day.


    Yes, Glocks can jam too. I will hunt this pesky problem down and make my new Glock reliable.


    My brother shooting my AK-47.


    Dad and my brother coming back from setting up our targets.


    My brother shooting his AR-15.


    My brother and his handgun.


    Great action shot!


    There is a shell casing in the air.


    Another casing in the air.


    And again with the shell casing in the air.


    This shell casing is hard to find.


    My brother with my Glock 24c.


    My Glock 24c cycling.


    My brother aiming down his PTR-91 sights.


    Closer picture of my brother and his PTR-91.


    My brother's PTR-91 and my dad with my AK-47 in the background.


    I am holding my wife's Colt Mustang Government Pocketlite II .380 ACP handgun (long name, tiny gun) and my newly aquired Glock 24c. VERY big size difference.


    Closer picture of my wife's Colt and my Glock.


    Me shooting my AK-47.


    Shooting from the kneeling position. Actually pretty comfortable, but didn't do anything for my accuracy.


    Best picture ever of me shooting my AK-47.


    Focused down range.


    My new Glock 24c.


    Another shot with my Glock.


    My father's grouping shooting my Glock 24C at 20 yards. Sharpie dot is aprox 1/2 inch in diameter.


    My father's second try at shooting my Glock 24c at 20 yards. One flier got away from him. He aimed on his first shot that is dead center in this picture.


    My try at 20 yards with my Glock 24c. First time ever shooting left handed. Shot better than ever before. Again, sharpie dot is about 1/2 inch in diameter.


    My brother shooting his AR. Shell casing in the air.


    Another shell casing in the air.


    Yes, he is sitting in a chair shooting his AR and smiling like a redneck. Go Navy....


    Dual .45s one freshly empty, the other in recoil.


    More dual wield .45s


    Great shot of a .45 feeding a new round.


    Yes, he is still sitting down. This is how the Navy trains in marksmanship...


    Got a great shot of bother's .45s in recoil with shell casings in the air! Awesome!


    My brother, father and I after a day of tossing lead down range

    That looks like a fun day. Only have one thing to critisize though... Check out the "chicken wing" on your brother as he shoots the rifles... He really needs to work on that.

    What brand AR15 is that anyway?

    I had a failure to feed with my brand new Glock 21 (.45 ACP) a few months ago. It was the Wolf ammo that caused it. Since then (no more wolf ammo) no more problems.

    A 1911 that works properly is as rare as a Glock that doesn't.

    Gotcha, it is about 1/2 hr east of sunset exit. On the way to Mt. Baker. If you coming up from south though it might be quicker to to take the back way from Highway 9.

    Love the closed eye shooting and the revolver grip on the handguns! ;-) I'm sure I'm the same as far as the blinking goes though! Looked like fun...I want your AK with the holo sight. And Happy 1st Fathers Day!

    Yup, I saw it too. I think is has a lot to do with being a rather large person. Cant get cheek weld otherwise. I have the same issue, but don't compensate with my arm.

    I was shooting some good Remington UMC and Magtech with my Glock. The nose of the rounds would sometimes dig into the nose of the feed ramp. I suspect it's from the old worn out mags not sitting high and tight in the magwell.
