By popular demand, we've opened this Forum to discuss range sessions, facilities and training. Who better to Moderate it than TFL Plank Holder, Trainer and general leg breaker....Kodiac.

Thanks for accepting the position, Kodiac. On behalf of the entire Staff, Welcome! This should be a lively area.

Thanks to Rich and Kodiak. It's nice to know that the administrators are responsive to the requests of members in creating this forum.

Good luck Kodiak, not that you'll need it

I'd like to be the... wait... fourth to chime in here. It's a shame I don't get to a range very often... does shooting behind your house count?

Kodiac - Have you ever seen a Colt Kodiak? It was a limited addition Anaconda in either 4" or 6" bbl. Unfluted cylinder, Mag-Na-Ported. The bbl is marked "Colt Kodiak - 44 Magnum" with a bear paw pint next to it.

Way coool. I've got a NIB/NBF 6". If my son didn't happen to be named Colt you could probably talk me out of selling it. Sorry, but it was a gift to him along with a Colt Lightweight AR & a Colt Knife for his first Christmas. Hey... he was three months old... old enough IMO to receive firearms/edge weapons.

Good idea for a forum, and I've always been intereste in range reports. Let's hear some honest critiques and fixes of firearms, and brags or whines on whims of arms.

Good suggestions on shooting would also be in order. (eg: at my range it's "don't forget to bring a tarp and a mower for the grass and the brass!")

Thank you all, Thank you, Thank you...

Down to business...

"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."
