In the Corps, we also had to be able to hit a man from 500 meters with an M16.

I love old military rifles! A lot! The first rifle I ever shot was a Mauser; it shot straighter than the road to Hell and made a hole twice as wide!

Yeah, I really enjoyed the .303. Never shot something that big before. In fact, I'd never shot any real gun before it.

One of the cooks that I work with was a Marine sniper; he said they used to shoot pennies at 2000 yards.

I've shot plenty of guns, ranging from small air pistols to heavy machine guns.
