French on Tain Range

Post by Takamota » Sat Apr 27, 2013 10:55 am

John, Niall, Tom Tolman and I headed off to the range on Tuesday. Thanks to Andy for setting this up for us. A fantastic day was had and we were on range from 8am till 10:15pm!

These were into sun but you can appreciate the power of these things and get the chance to see what the jets you have been shooting this last fortnight get up to at the other end! The noise from these things firing is amazing!

Very nice, love the spent cartridges falling away from the undersides. Lucky you for getting the chance of this and for such cracking angles.

Cracking set bud. I bet you're pleased with pic five but the best for me is pic nine - great catch and it just goes to prove how realistic these exercises are :clap:
