I didn't realize the spent casings would get thrown quite that far from the rifle (this is my first semi-auto), so most of them flew off the deck into the grass below. Hope they don't cause any trouble for the mower. Next time I'll stand further to the left and hopefully most of the casings will remain on the deck or fall underneath where we don't mow.
I need to set up some proper targets. I was just shooting at the old wood pile in the middle of the lawn and I didn't have a specific point to aim at.
Next time I'm in town, I need to look for some extra magazines.
I'm still astounded at just down cheap the ammo is for this thing. I fired off 20 rounds, and the box still has 535 more. If I were shooting my Springfield, I'd have finished off a whole box already (20 rounds to a $25 box).
Overall I'm quite pleased with this rifle. Perhaps I should also purchase an inexpensive handgun chambered in .22LR.
