    Finally got a chance to shoot my M39. What a difference between it and my old 1891. This gun shot like a dream. I knew that the gun was going to be sighted somewhere out around 100 yards, so I didn't even bother working the 50 yard targets and went straight for 100yd distance. As it was, I basically put the sight at the bottom of the large circle in order to hit near center.

    My next set was a little more consistent I think.

At the distance though, I couldn't really see them, so I just guessed at where to shoot. For some reason the bottom left target gave me all sorts of trouble.

    I was using milsurp ammo for most of it. I really enjoyed shooting this gun and can't wait to take it out to the 200yard range next.

    Great shooting. Looking forward to taking my new Finns for a spin. I'm hoping for similar results.
