I’m kinda seeing Great Britain in the head.

And of course the Cheshire Cat.

Here’s some happy music to listen to while you’re staring at that target.

Major post apocalypse mistake there rookie. Those head shots missed the brain and the zombie will rise again….and quit wasting ammo.

Two of Sobek’s siblings purchased those old WWII Russian Mosin Nagant bolt action rifles. They aren’t very fast but they do come with a bayonet. Perfect for head poking walkers, biters or whatever they’re called.

If you look carefully at the torso shots, you can see some smaller holes from a .22 rifle. I recently inherited a Remington Sportmaster model 341, which used to be my grandfather’s. It was manufactured some time between 1936 and 1940, so it’s pushing 75 years and still going strong. It’s a great rifle for teaching the kiddos.

The Mosin Nagants are cool, too, but not very practical for a ten-year-old’s shoulders.

Started my girls on a Remington single shot .22 plinker.. to get em used to the noise and the pop of a weapon. An old squirrel rifle that belonged to dad.. probably goes back to 1920.

that was coaching from Retired Geezer BTW

Am I the only one that sees a dancing armadillo in the head portion of that target?

Nice shooting, croc-boy. Those old Remington’s are a beaut, aren’t they? I’m personally partial to old 1940s/1950s Mossberg .22s, but the Remington’s are always a good choice.

Armadillo’s? I heard somewhere where an enterprizing young person made his fortune by capturing, cleaning, cooking and then selling armadillos as possum on the half-shell.

Kind of a select market I know but…its hard to argue with success.
