I managed to get out to Lone Star Gun Range this afternoon and shoot my new PSL (http://www.dragunov.net/romanian_psl.html). First, without the scope and then with the scope. It seems that I was a lot more accurate without the scope (even though I'm still a lousy shot). The geometry of the short stock & the way the scope is mounted requires me to twist into some really awkward positions. It was very hard on my back and twisted my right wrist into a very uncomfortable position. I think I need a longer stock, preferably with a pistol grip that's a bit smaller than what's on there. Any suggestions? Other than that, I certainly got some interest from some of the folks at the range, they really wanted to know what it was.
