  1. Dear Lord, that’s hideous. Looks like the guy next to me at the indoor range who does a 30 round mag dump at five yards with his Glock

  2. Might not be a joke. Mini 14s sometimes have quality control issues, and if you have a new shooter without anyone to help guide them along who knows what should be happening, well….

    And honestly we can laugh but I still wouldn’t want to be shot at by whoever this is. The spread may increase the chance of getting hit …

  3. It’s a joke, pretty sure I’ve seen this particular picture used elsewhere. I have a Mini 14 that I picked up last year, it has the newer, heavier barrel. It’s accurate and is a fun gun to shoot. Still fun for people to pick on the gun because of previous issues, though. I lol’d, despite really liking the gun.

  4. First of all, the holes are way too big to be 223.

    Second, I’ve seen that image before. I want to say it was a surplus M1 Garand that was doing, but I do remember it being an issue of a barrel that was just worn out.

    1. RE: the hole size — it’s a 12×18 target, not the normal poster-sized (24×36) target. Scaled up, those holes are right about .22-caliber.

      Still, I’m calling it a joke. There’s no way that many keyholes leave that clean of a target paper. It would be shredded.

  5. Looks like a cop’s target who was shooting next to me at an indoor range. His was a case of his gun being able to shoot way better then he could.

    He got mad and left when he looked over and saw me cutting the bullseye out of my target. I was shooting a Ruger 22/45 target pistol with a bull barrel. But he never made that connection in his mind.

  6. My Pop has a older 195 series Mini14 with the thin barrel.

    It is about a 3-4moa gun, but all of the holes in the target were round.

    They say if you shorten it to 16″ or put a strut on it that it should drop down to 1.5-2moa.
