The Rifleman's World Off the Range

This just in from a student from our last NRAWC event that shot Rifleman here:

Note how the fundamentals under a bit of stress will produce results.
The last comment #3, is in reality the Rifleman's Bubble.

Thanks for a great weekend.  And for great instruction.  I run a ranch where coyotes are a problem.  While some people hunt them for sport, it is part of my job, but I confess I do enjoy the challenge.  Today I shot three of them.
 
1.)The first one came directly at me at a dead run.  I did not fuss the shot.  I just squeezed the trigger and followed through.
 
2.)The next one was about 250 yards away.  I focused on the crosshairs and exhaled.
 
3.) The next one I happened so fast I don’t even remember the scenario.  But the training stuck.
 
So thank you.

After our second Appleseed, BlueFeather has a very similar story on a successful Javelina hunt near the Mexican border.
A 70 yard standing shot.  With a peep sighted, JC Higgins model 45 rifle in 30-30 that was made the same year she was born.
We ate well that month. O0



What works on the range, works in the real world. ;)

 Yes it does! We had a 'graduate' from AS do something similar, riding in the guides vehicle when a boar was seen. They dismounted, boar ran and he dropped it on the fly, one round.

 The guide's response, " Where did you learn to shoot like that!!?"

 AS grad, "went to an Appleseed!"

 Good post, thanks for sharing.
