A Valentine’s Day Special — Three Shots Form Heart at 600 Yards

Valentine's Day Group Accurateshooter

Valentines Day Cupid Arrow Accurateshooter ForumThat’s right, today is February 14th — Valentine’s Day. While testing a rifle at the range last season, Forum member Ron B. (aka Snakepit) managed a 3-shot group that would definitely make Mr. Cupid proud. Yep, Ron shot a lovely cluster that formed a sweet little heart in the splatter-type target.

That’s nice enough, mind you — but it gets even better. Ron’s heart-shaped, three-shot group was shot at SIX HUNDRED yards, making this a Valentine’s Day Masterpiece of precision shooting (and, we have to say it, quite a little bit of luck). Good Shootin’ Snakepit!

600-Yard Heart Shot with a Savage and Factory Ammo!
In our Shooter’s Forum, Ron explained that this group was actually shot with factory ammo… from a Savage no less:

“This will be one that may be hard to believe for some but it is my Savage 12 FTR .308 and I was shooting 168gr Federal Gold Medal Match. The stock has been modified for benchrest shooting with a 3″-wide shoe on the forward stock. I do not shoot this rifle very often as most of my time is spent with my 30″ Brux barreled 6BR working up loads and shooting. That day I had put the scope back on it and was sighting it in at 600 yards and those were my last three shots after my last scope correction and then I was out of ammo. This rifle has always been very accurate. The weather was good, no wind or mirage.”

FREE Printable Super-Sized Playing Card Targets

NRA Playing Card targets

The NRA Blog has published a nice set of super-sized playing card targets. These boast a variety of aiming points (large and small) so they work well for rifles as well as pistols. On the Queen of Diamonds, aim for the large bull-style designs in the “red zone” or aim for the smaller dots on the periphery. For a real challenge, try to shoot each one of the 26 small red diamonds in the curved, central white stripes.

On the Five of Clubs target, you can aim for the smaller club symbols, or shoot for the orange, purple, and green “dripping paint” bulls in the large, central club. The Ace of Spades target offers a colored bullseye in the center, plus a very small bullseye in the letter “C”. Last but not least, the Eight of Hearts is a perfect choice for a trip to the range on February 14th, Valentine’s Day.

Valentine’s Day Trick Shot by Kirsten Joy Weiss

Valentine’s Day is almost here. To celebrate this romantic holiday, Kirsten Joy Weiss has devised a very special trick shot with her .22LR Volquartsen semi-auto rifle.

Braving winter weather, Kirsten manages to drill three shots into a heart shape on her target. This trick shot is performed, Kirsten adds, “for the love of shooting”. See more cool trick shots on Kirsten’s website, KirstenJoyWeiss.com.

Valentine’s Day Gifts for the Lady Shooter in Your Life

Valentines DayValentine’s Day is just three days away, so you better start planning how you’ll show some appreciation for the lady in your life. Of course there are the old reliables: flowers, chocolates, and dinner at a fancy restaurant. But if you want to do something really different this year, how about giving your special lady some “pretty in pink” shooting gear. (Don’t forget the flowers though… if you value your life.)

Natchez Shooters Supplies offers a variety of pink products for ladies. How about a set of pink electronic ear muffs from Champion Shooters? A portion of the proceeds from sales of these muffs goes to fighting breast cancer. These muffs only have a 21 NRR (not so great), but they do collapse for easy storage. The Champion Ladies Target Muffs, item CM40975, sell for just $34.95.

Natchez also offers pink cases for both pistols and rifles. The Bulldog-brand 52″ Pink Rifle/Shotgun Case will hold most rifles or shotguns without optics. This would be a great gift for a young girl who shoots trap or who uses an iron-sighted rimfire rifle (such as a CMP H&R M12). The case features a water-resistant outer shell with a soft, scratch-resistant, tricot inner lining. The pink long-gun case costs just $14.75 at Natchez, item JZBD254.

For the Pistol-Packin’ Mama in the family, the Outdoor Connection makes a hot pink, range case. This tough, leather-bottomed bag features padded central compartments for pistols, with accessory pockets on all four exterior sides. There is plenty of room to stow ammo boxes, muffs, trigger locks, and other shooting gear. The great thing about this bag is that it can do double-duty as a general travel case when it’s not being used to haul pistols to the range. Made from heavy 600-denier nylon, the pink Range Bag is On Sale for $21.95 at Natchez.

Last but not least, MizMac.com offers a Pink, Limited Edition 4-Gun Range Cart, that’s perfect for a gal who shots service rifle, High Power, or multi-gun matches. The cart features a steel frame, run-flat tires on chrome spoke rims, and it even has dual rear parking brakes. The Cart can hold four, full-size long guns in a vertical position. It’s also a great cart for shotgunners, as it has a lower storage compartment that will hold 18 boxes of 12ga shells. Just as important as its ammo carrying capacity, the Rugged Gear Cart has a built-in Six-pack Cooler, for those vital liquid refreshments. As sold by MizMac.com, the Rugged Gear Pink Range Cart retails for $389.99.
