    So a buddy from Canada came down for a concert...and one of his bucket list items was to go to a gun range. Say no more, I got ya!

    This one pretty well summed up the trip...him shooting another buddies 1895 Guide Gun in .45-70.

    He got to shoot the Marlin 1895 above, a Springfield M1A, Ruger 10/22, Browning BL22, Browning Buckmark, Browning Hi Power, Kimber Super Carry Pro HD, Smith and Wesson 686, 300 Blackout AR15, Kimber Ultra, Walther P38. Like a dumbass I forgot the tripod pintle for my Browning M1919 so it didnt get shot.

    Cool nice of you to take care of my fellow Canucks from the great white North. Did you have some heavy 4570 loads or just the standard. That marlin will take whatever you throw at her. Picture tells all EH!

    The slow mo really gave us a good look at his face! Lol. Very cool of y'all to take him shooting! Now he will go home and spread stories across Canada of how he has first hand knowledge of Americans and their big ass guns.
