SVT-40 at the range and shooting it for the first time

Postby Lalunette » Sat Feb 08, 2014 9:12 pm

Joined a local range and went there today to put my new SVT-40 through its paces...

I was quite pleased !!

These are my first 10 rounds... at 100 yards, standing, using iron sights only !!




I also filmed myself.

Looking good Lalunette. I've shot a SVT before but don't have one. As I remember it was pretty sweet shooting. Somehow, never did see one for sale when I had some mad money to buy one.

I snagged mine for $199 when Lever Arms in British Columbia was running a special.

I ended buying two... one for me and for my son who is in the Air Force and loves guns as much as I do.

Lookin' good












Bronze/gold bolts...


Close-ups








Dates and such




















Money shot

$199 is a deal. I can't even remember the last time I saw one for sale at any price from the usual sources.

Did a quick look online. looks like in the US they are asking about four times what you paid for one of them now days.

I live in Blaye, about 50km North of Bordeaux. Been here since 2002 and CANNOT get my head round the language.............I speak enough to stay out of jail :lol: :lol: :lol:

Anyway, send me a PM with your e.mail address and I will register you and send you your targets. At the end of the day it's just a fun shoot.

Additionally, 3 or 4 of us chat every Sunday on Skype at about 20:00 hrs UK time so if you want to put a voice to a face, send Niner your Skype details and he will add you into the call.
