Train Hard and Stay Safe
Really good shooting @Kristine1
Went today and had my weekly therapy with Drs. Glock & Sauer.
I go at least once a week. What I shoot depends on what needs to be done. I shoot a lot of 22lr to keep volume up and cost down but also practice with full power. This week my wife and I took handguns. 22lr semi’s and 38 spl revolver. Week before was a rifle sight in and some close in shotgun and rifle. I much prefer a rifle or shotgun for home defense.
Yesterday. An indoor range in south eastern Wisconsin.
It was pretty darn full for noon hour on a Wednesday. Three different couples practicing with handguns together, some of them probably first-timers. Myself and at least 4 other aligning rifle optics. Everyone, including the staff, complaining about the election. But everyone friendly. And nobody wearing masks. It was a slice of heaven.
Welcome to the Family MCrider! Much van be learned here.
As ffar as going to the range, itd been z coupla weeks ONLY bc my Husband has had heart & lung problems so due to Covid we’ve been playing it safe. We do go every coupla weeks thats for sure! I cant wait to fire my new S&W Sheild EZ 9mm!!
I’m sorry you haven’t been able to get to the range. I’d be chomping at the bit if I had an EZ to go try out too!
Great video @BRUCE26
Actually ammo shortage showed us that good training doesn’t need ammo. I’ve just realized that last year I usually spent 350 - 400 rounds during 1hr - 2hr range time or 400 rounds during whole day class.
This year I use 22LR at the range (so cost is lowered to minimum) and max 150 rounds at whole day class… and training results are the same
Ammo shortage also forced me to focus more on proper techniques, better trigger management and repeatability BEFORE taking the shot. Sending the bullet downrange became less important… and it seemed to be the easiest part so didn’t need to be repeated every second…
Today was the first time I have been to a range since I left the Marine Corps in 2004. I think I had a little too much fun.
OK @Shadow2f5… which holes were made by you?
The tennis ball sized hole toward the center
That would be me after 16 years…
Lol. I was afraid that might happen to me. I spent the last couple months dry firing, hoping that wouldn’t happen
No such thing as too much fun, lol. Nice shooting!
Today. Shot the Sig P220 .45, and Glock 19X 9mm. Had a good time.
