Another Day at the Range

#1 Postby BroadsideofaBarn » Tue Jan 09, 2018 10:19 pm

Haven’t seen as much trigger time as I would like while I am home from J.O.B. Seems that Life is happening while I am making other plans!

But got to slip away a little today (only 60 rnds.). Best target of the day. 10 rnds @ 10 yds.

I got to shoot twice today. Once at the range and once in the studio with some camera gear so that was a good day!

Guess I’ll have to clean a pistol and a camera lens tonight! Hope I don’t get those two rags mixed up again this time!

Thank you senorgrand.

It was an exceptionally good (read: damned lucky) target for me!

Yes. 9mm.

lol! Yeah lurker. I guess I pretty much did!

Then I'll tell you what I'll do for you lurker. Next trip to the range I'll take the crappiest target I shoot (and it will be hard to decide since I shoot so many of them) into the studio, and try to do a shot and post that! Photos are always fun on a forum and I'll suck it up and post my worst, regardless of personal embarrassment. Just for fun! I don't take myself too seriously so no worries there! Probably won't get any props, such as pistol, mag, cartridges, etc. in it since the spread on the target will be so wide! I'll bust out a wide angle lens for the job!

But I'll make a "believer" out of you!

Now this statement I don't understand.

Yea, the best way to beat cabin fever a day at the range.

Certainly none taken lurker! Guess I was showing my age since I may date back further than D&D and never really got into it!

No doubt high desert! Not particularly an affliction I suffer from since I like to get out in all kinds of weather! But it is kind of nice that the indoor pistol range I frequent is climate controlled and very well air-filtered. Can't say the same for my outdoor long gun range.

Thank you CD. VZ's.
