Interesting site and pictures also. Years ago I use to hunt at Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia. The fort is fairly large with a lot of different ranges on it - howitzer, tank, small arms, long guns, etc. it was aslo available for hunting and in fact was a rather excellent hunting and fishing area. Access was controlled and they only let so many people hunt in any area. Many times while hunting it we would find "pieces" of deer on the fring of the artillery/howitzer ranges. They turned out to be good places to sit and shoot fox and other scavengers.
I was qualifying on the range at Quantico when a doe & 2 fawns ran across the butts. Even tho there was a cease-fire called there were several guys that shot at the deer. I just laughed as about 40 rds went down range and not one hit the deer. Those guys all ended up with charge sheets for missing......poetic justice.
Havent seen that one yet. LOL... Thats quite the piece of artillery there Chief,.
I have had the opportunity to shoot one 2 times. And suffice it to say 4 inch group at 2500 yards with 2 rounds. LOL :lol: :lol: :lol: :shock: I have thought about borrowing the other one for elk.. LOL
Hey Slim our youngest was born at Quantico Naval Hospital. I was "on loan" from the Army to "THE Academy" what a bunch of egomaniacs. I was the program director for the sniper course and the urban battle course. We enjoyed our time there and lived in Frederickburg, close to the Rappahanick River.
