Shot 1. Check the dust getting kicked up by the .223 rounds.
At a secret location in the California hills, I got my first lesson in how to fire an assault rifle. The weapon is a CAR-15, the civilian version of the M-16.

Check out the flying brass.
In this shot you can see the brass flying. Compare it to the one on the left and you’ll see it’s in sequence, but we saw the brass moving through the air.

Captain Dave give me lessions on the assault rifle.
Police Captain Dave R. instructs me in the proper stance and grip of the CAR-15. Not to mention proper range etiquette and safety. Always point the weapon down range. Always handle the weapon as if it is loaded. If the weapon jams wait for assistance from the range master. Don’t Shoot The Turkey Vultures!

Check out my target.
My target is proof that even an IT contractor can learn to shoot well. I won’t be applying for a position with the SWAT team any time soon. Nor will I be winning any marksmanship contests. But if I need to hit someone, I will be able to make the shot.
