I have had the opportunity to go shot my Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 once again – and was not disappointed.
This past weekend I headed over to a friends house for a cookout with several weapons including the M&P. Lucky guy has a 50 and 100 yard range on his property. I fired another 150 rounds of CCI Mini-Mags with no problems. Most of my shooting was at 50 yards – however I did venture out to 100 yards for two groups.
The first group fired I was not even sure if I would be on target. Turned out I was – and did pretty well. My group was low but ran to 8″. I was happy. I decided to shoot another and pay a little closer attention to my breathing and steadiness. Shooting from a bench – but not a rest – I managed a respectable 6″ inch group.
For me and my skill level – a 6″ group at 100 yards with a semi-automatic open-sighted .22LR rifle is pretty good.
Looking forward to next time.
