I don't have a photo, but I try to keep my rifle as light as possible. Even though we don't cover much ground in a class, I try to keep the weight of my gear down to a minimum considering in real life I would have to hoof it.
.22 LR is effective to 150 yards (140 m), though practical range tends to be less. After 150 yards the ballistics of the round are such that it will be difficult to compensate for the large "drop". The relatively short effective range, low report, and light recoil has made it a favorite for use as a target practice cartridge. The accuracy of the cartridge is good, but not exceptional; various cartridges are capable of the same or better accuracy. A contributing factor in rifles is the transition of even a high-velocity cartridge projectile from supersonic to subsonic within 100 yards (91 m). As the bullet slows, the shock wave caused by supersonic travel overtakes the bullet and can disrupt its flight path, causing minor but measurable inaccuracy. When zeroed for 100 yards (91 m), the trajectory of the standard high-velocity .22 LR with a 40-grain (2.6 g) bullet has a 2.7-inch (69 mm) rise at 50 yards (46 m), and 10.8 inches (270 mm) drop at 150 yards (140 m). A .22 LR rifle needs to be zeroed for 75 yards (69 m) to avoid over-shooting small animals like squirrels at intermediate distances. As a hunting cartridge, the .22 LR is mainly used to kill small game. It is highly effective on squirrels and rabbits at distances closer than 150 yards (140 m) and on ground hogs, marmots, and foxes closer than 80 yards (73 m). It has been successfully used on large creatures such as coyotes, but range should be limited to no farther than 65 yards (59 m); head and chest shots are mandatory with the most powerful .22 cartridge the hunter can use accurately.
Here's my gear used during Rifle 202 , Rifle 303 and Lo Light Class.
M&P 15 .22LR with 9 mags VCAS BFG 2 point sling primary Arms red dot Magpul BUIS 1st gen Evike torch light 90 Lumens ( I think )
Rounds fired during the above class around 2000 Knowing that I spent so little cause im using a.22 LR = priceless
We've had a 15-22 for two years...my step-son ran it in a couple tac carbine courses in 2010 and loved it. Really like the AR type working controls, makes a fine 'understudy'.
At one of the classes he was pingin' 8" steels at 100yds with a carry-handle irons set-up. Was kinda funny, rest o' class had Mini-14's and AR's, the delay from his little 'pew pew pew' to the 'ding ding ding' was fun to listen to. ;D Excellent little rifle in our expereince.
