I go 2-3 times a week. Over the last year I've shot less .22 and 5.56, but 9mm, 45acp, 243 and 7.62x51 remains plentiful in bulk.

Last Sunday. Shot some clays with a friend, not a real skeet place but just with a little throwing arm. We shot through about a hundred clays, then tested the sight-in on our hunting rifles.

My one .22 pistol, a Ruger MKII is currently having mechanical problems (the bolt will pull back all the way, but doesn't seem to properly cock the pistol, because it won't fire). So that has seriously hurt my shooting. Normal I would put 100-200 down range from that pistol. But now I haven't shot it since Septmeber.

I think I've only been to the range 5 times all year. I work full time, go to school full time and have a 2yo running around the house, so time is hard to come by.

Today for 4 hrs. Shot very good even though my fingers were frozen. Now I think I am done for the year, other than Yote hunting

Last weekend the weather was perfect for a shoot. So my father, brother and I set aside a few hours and went to BLM/USFS land to shoot. Before that, it's been about 4 months due to work/graduate school/other obligations.

Yesterday,,,

We sent lots of .22 LR down the range,,,
Along with some .380, .38 Special, and 9mm

Absolutely beautiful day,,,
Semi-overcast sky with no wind.

The temperature was in the low 60's,,,
We were very comfortable in shirt sleeves.

This will probably be the last decent day,,,
I think Winter is settling in this week.

We definitely thinned the feral tin can population.

Is the hammer strut properly engaged?

Everyday this week....I roll my own. Usually once or twice a week and I do various realistic exercises. Shooting from and exiting a car this week was my main focus.

not too long ago

Went out to BLM land just north of me. Got back about 4 hours ago. We have our own target stand and go out as often as we can.

We go the last Sunday of every month.
The CHURCH of the Gun as we call it where Pastor Colt or Reverend Smith & Wesson preaches.
We also have visiting Pastors attend most Sundays.
The Evangelistic Reverend Glock shows up often as well as brother Para Ordnance.
We have quite a lively choir.
Brother Kimber is often seen singing with the choir.
We can be heard singing for miles.
For anyone in the Dallas / Ft. Worth area that would like to join the congregation come by http://www.meetup.com/TexasGunOwner-DFW/ and join us.

I went again this past Sunday to test out my new Hogue Monogrip for my SP101. Worst grips ever. My hand still hurts.. bruised the web of my right hand and it still hurts almost a week later. I never had that problem with the stock grips. Now I have to wait till my hands feels better before I go again.

Goes to show, no matter how many good reviews of a product you read, especially grips, you'll have to try them for yourself. I was really surprised with my experience with the Monogrip. I was all over the place (didn't hit paper or the cardboard backing on some shots... first time ever doing that.) and I injured myself!

Needless to say, the Hogue is in the drawer and the stock grip is back on the gun.

If I'm lucky, I get to go about twice a month these days. Between the job and family, I barely have time for this at all.

Plus it's football season

Last time was about two weeks ago. Took a neighbor kid to shoot some 22's (rifles and handguns). Had a good time.

I went to the range last Sunday with 4 friends and had a blasty blast. First time going since August and before that I hadn't gone since January. I'll be looking to go back this weekend or next week.

Sunday the 17th, my 62nd Birthday,,,

I took a lady to the range,,,
She has a 9-mil she didn't know how to shoot.

We put two boxes of cheap Tula downrange,,,
Now she feels confident about her Springfield XD-something.

I must admit it shoots a lot nicer than I expected,,,
Her gun is the model that does not have a manual safety.

We also played a bit with some rimfire pistols,,,
She fell in love with my Taurus 22-PLY,,,
She was actually hitting with it.

Nice birthday outing for me,,,
A productive/informative range session for her.

Aarond

With the colder temps in the low 30's I will be spending more time on the indoor range with my hand guns.

When was your last visit to the range?

Between my post on 11/8/13 and today, I've...

- gotten an hour of personal instruction, firing 75 rounds during the hour, including precision strings and rapid fire.

- had a 100 round range trip.

- gone for 1.5 hours of sim work. Defensive scenarios on a 300 degree range, hogan's alley, slow fire course, rapid fire course. No idea how many hundreds of rounds fired. I shot a LOT. Gotta love sim guns.

- signed up for a class on Dec. 8th

- planned a range run for Monday, 11/25.

- lots of dry fire, draw, and press out work.
