Firing an Assault Rifle
Each cardboard target is hung on a dead tree, with a paper plate for the ideal shot. The rifles are sighted in, which is a long process at 100 yards!
I was in the woods yesterday with my partner and filmed him doing some target practice. Then, he asked me if I'd like to fire the Mini 14 ( .223 cal.) assualt rifle. I know it kicks!
He's been instructing me on fire arms safety. One thing that is key, excellent hearing protection. In this short film you can see I have ear plugs in addition to heavy duty head set.
