While he was visiting us for Thanksgiving, we took Dan's brother Robin to the Ocmulgee Wildlife Management Area range. Here he shoots Dan's .45 caliber Hi-Point JHP pistol.

Robin enjoyed shooting Dan's 9mm Hi-Point 995 carbine. It's a fun, easy-to-handle, accurate little rifle...

...and Robin turned out to be a VERY good shot with it! This is his target: TEN shots, all together, from 30 feet!

Dan's co-worker, Scott, in November, shooting Dan's .45 caliber Hi-Point JHP (caught in mid-recoil!).

Gaye enjoys trying out Scott's .22 caliber lever-action rifle

Gaye watches through binoculars while Scott shoots Dan's .38 caliber Ruger GP-100 revolver.

Scott also had fun shooting the Mosin-Nagant rifle (big boom)!

Gaye shoots the Mosin-Nagant.

Laurie (during a "His Angels" day at the range in June 2014) shoot's Dan's co-worker George's semi-automatic AK-47.

Gaye watches through binoculars while our friend Larry shoots the AK-47 (A former Army officer, he said "I've seen the enemy's guns, but I've never shot one before!"

Amanda enjoyed shooting our .45 caliber Hi-Point pistol.

Gaye with her favorite of all our guns...the 9mm carbine!

Gaye enjoying her birthday in April 2014 at the range (yes, really -- it was her idea) with a couple of her girlfriends (and Dan) and our .45 caliber Hi-Point pistol.

We housesat for some friends in April 2014, and took advantage of the chance to use their backyard range. Here, Gaye shows off our arsenal.

A semi-artistic view of our long guns, with the setting sun reflecting off of them. From left: our 12-gauge shotgun, our 9mm carbine, and our 7.62mm rifle.

In March 2014, we went to the range with a couple of new friends, Larry and Lisa. Here Dan watches while Lisa shoots her husband's Hi-Point C9 9mm pistol. (Photo © Gaye Bullock)

Larry also enjoyed shooting Dan's Mosin Nagant rifle.

We went shooting on a cold morning in February 2014 with a co-worker of Dan's (George) and his wife Melanie. Here Gaye watches through binoculars as Melanie shoots George's semi-automatic AK-47 rifle.

In November, Dan shot this target (like the one below) with the Mosin-Nagant rifle. The total diameter of this 5-shot group is about 3 inches...which is pretty good, because it's at a range of 150 feet!

In his first "show-off" target of the year, Dan shot his scoped Mosin-Nagant rifle at 50 feet in April, from a bench rest, putting three shots effectively into a single hole! Pretty good for a 1943 Soviet Army surplus rifle, firing 1971 Bulgarian surplus ammo!
