...very unhappy I only got to put 100 rounds through it before it got too dark . :D I'm very happy with its performance (Monarch FMJ). I popped a scope on it and got her dialed in pretty fast. I'm punching one ragged hole with this carbine at 25 yards. This weekend when I have more time (and ammo) I'll extend the range somewhat. I would like to try it on a coyote or two Sunday...

I will say this though. I'm not much of a paper shooter. When sighting in I work for tight groupson paper. Afterwards, its little critters, cans, milk cartons and other stuff that react when hit. I'm still just a kid when it comes to plinking.

Ah a wise guy - for that you have to loan your 995 to a non-995 member for two weeks, and NO complaining!

Congrats on the good shoot!

Never fear Pogy. This is my second time around with these carbines and I have yet to be disappointed.

Well he fits right in at home at this forum.
:lol:

I plan on getting some +P tomorrow. Hopefully I can hunt Saturday evening, Sunday for sure. Pics will be forthcoming.

Another snarky shooter who likes poking a den of bears with a sharp stick??

MAN, you guys didn't tell me that there'd be other applicants for my job :cry:

In all seriousness, you're going to find yourself cursing the daylight the more you shoot the 995. Last time I was seriously out with my 995 before having to sell it I burned 600 rounds between myself, my little sis and a friend of ours and it just wasn't enough. Even got the gun-snob Russian only arms guy out shooting it and agreeing it was "A serviceable weapon". Stef likes it because of the nearly non-existent kick but still wouldn't give her AR up for one. But she'd take MY 995 any chance she could when I wasn't home :p

Welcome to the club!

This is the scope I slapped on the 995, Robert. I paid $8 for it (gotta love the internet) and had it mounted on my Saiga 7.62X39 until yesterday. I know some people have had problems with NCStar products, but I've always been happy with them.
