I really think this interwebs thing is going to take off.

Took some time on Friday to run out to the range and get some much needed trigger time in. Decided to take a few guns. The Makarov, The ARP, Marlin Camp Carbine in 45ACP, Kimber Pro Carry, and the CZ-82.
Since I posted info on the Makarov, and Brigid said a friend was looking at one, I decided to try and film my Makarov while shooting to get some feel for the operation and recoil.
Do you know how hard it is to shoot a DA/SA gun one handed, while aiming through the camera on an iPhone? It is harder than it seems... That's why I'm pretty damn happy with the group I got while shooting:
I also tried filming through the Primary Arms red-dot on the Camp Carbine. It was slightly easier, but still an exercise very similar to patting your head while rubbing your stomach.
Everything ran great. The testing continues on the ARP. So far, no failures, and I can hit a basketball sized group offhand at 60 yards.
