Here’s the place to post photos of your rifle(s), and the targets that you’ve shot with the rifle’s IRON SIGHTS. No scopes or optics please; we’re going “old school” on this thread. If you haven’t used your rifle’s standard sights in a while, here’s your excuse/opportunity.

My first civilian version of a battle rifle was a Century Arms C308 - Black Betty (bam-ba-lam). Here’s a photo of the rifle and a few of my better targets. Unless it’s stated otherwise, I was shooting off of a table with a gun rest in every photo.

Scaled target at 25 yds is supposed to simulate a full-sized target at 100 yds.

My current rifle is a PTR 91 GI – Triple B.

I shot this target while seated, resting my elbows on the table. The scaled target at 75 yds is supposed to simulate the full-size target at 300 yds.

The target is 11x8.5".

And this was at 50 yds.

25 yds; 1” squares, 1” bulls-eye, 2” and 4” circles. I was standing, but leaning over and resting my elbows on the counter. (With Wolf steel-cased ammo too!)

The scaled target at 50 yds is supposed to simulate the full-size target at 200 yds. I shot this target while sitting on a pad with the rifle resting on the railing.

Nice thread!

Here is my Spanish M43, very first time firing at 50 yards, bench rest, 73 year old surplus Turkish ammo. :)

Cool!

Thanks. :)

My M1 Carbine first time at 100 yards. First 4 shots low, rear aperture set at 100. Last shot center, rear aperture set at 200.

Flier to the right was the guy next to me lighting off a 50 BMG causing me to flinch a little. Lol!

I understand. On my last trip to the outdoor range, the guy two tables down from me was sighting in a .445 rifle with a muzzle brake for an upcoming bison hunt. I tried to wait and shoot in between the concussion of his shots.

Lol! It tends to break your concentration a bit.

My M16A2, initial 25 yard sight-in, from bench rest (cobbled together bench rest!).

I was shooting Wolf Polyformance steel-cased ammunition out of my PTR 91 GI. I shot off of a table with a gun rest.
