I just bought my rifle back from a friend who bought it 18 years ago. He's kept it in great shape and now I'm going to take up target (maybe trap) shooting again.

Anyone here interested in this sport?

We were watching Expendables II last night and there was a part in the movie where Maggie (the female mercenary) was shooting at the bad guys and the scope on her weapon was impressive and had night vision capabilities. I said to my husband while were were discussing the scope - "I want that!". chuckle.gif

Trap with a .22 would be something. chuckle.gif

I used to have a .22 marlin bolt action with a scope for small game hunting. When I moved to Long Island I gave it to a cousin who had a farm.

Biere.

Wouldn't mind skeet shooting. Live birds have somewhat erratic flight patterns, tend to be further away, and consequently are a little harder to hit.

If you can hit skeet with a 22 you are probably a better shot than I am (never tried it though).

I only sold my gun to our friend because I was too busy with working and raising kids to practice the sport...that's all changed now.

Do you miss shooting at all?

I think I still got it though. My husband and I went to the Hunter's and Angler's show last year and they set up a kitty shooting range with moving targets. Well, I could not resist checking out just how bad my aim had gotten over all the years. It all came back and I shot each and every moving target along that line.

Never mind a .22, I had issues with a 12 gauge over/under shooting skeet and trap. Stationary pumkins and biere cans made better targets. chuckle.gif

I wouldn't even try it. lol.gif I can hold my own with a stationary target, but that's about it.

Quite honestly I don't recall what type of gun I used for skeet 20+ years back, but I'd sure like to give it a go with a 22.

A 12 gauge skeet gun should have a 30 inch pattern at 40 yards. A 30 inch pattern (2827 sq. in.) is going to beat a 22 bullet (.0394 sq. in.)

Like to hear the result when you try it. If you actually hit something you are out of my league.

What value .22 magnum rifles are semiautomatic Rifle Forum. ... I'm positive Marlin makes one also, anyhow don't have any information on that. ... the 77/22 which is a FINE jolt movement .22 Mag in the event that you aren't stayed on having a semi-computerized.

Well, this fella seems to be able to hit them at this trajectory...I wonder how well he'd do with the target flying from west to east?
