Got a bit of range time today. With the BAR weighing in at 20+lbs and standing fire at 1 shot every 3 seconds per range rules, my arms were dying at 1+ minutes holding this rifle up shooting it through a 20 round mag. Put 17 of a 20 on paper at 50 yds using open (horrible peep sights). No idea on how our "boys" used this rifle with any accuracy with bullets wizzing by their heads in combat. Total respect to the GI's of WW2 and Korea using this beast
Heavy trigger pull pulled most of my shots to the right. Understandably high as the first mark on the peep sight is 100 yds. But being a "Mr. Magoo", I can't even see the center of the target at 100 yds using open sights. Hahahahaha

Love our X3, but it is certainly light on utility. Got a new Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk today. Hoping to gain back some extra utility again. Meanwhile our oldest son is buying our X3, and we‘re excited for him.

Nice.. We just ordered and picked up a new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4xe. It is the hybrid electric/gas model. Gets about 20-30 miles on electric and then the gas motor kicks in. GF is able to charge at work for free. Ordered in Sept and got it in November, just in time to get the government $7500 tax credit. It was changed for 2023 tax year. We wanted all the bells and whistles on it. GF prefers rides in this over my '79 bird, this has airbags and abs. I still prefer my bird and pretending to living in the 80's again...lol
