NFA stuff always gets my attention , I mainly shoot a private range at my buddies place and I am the only NFA owner that shoots on his range , as a matter of fact I was on it in 26 deg weather today getting a buddies rifle sighted in for him and test shooting a DB9and of course I had the SBR out today making some noise

I voted based on beer after range, guns cleaned and put away.

This past Saturday at the range, temps were in the low 20's and the wind was blowing from the north, dead on with shooting area. I was at the range for about an hour, fired the Glock only. The wind was nasty, not many shooters at the range. I am estimate about 8 not counting the range officer.

It was not worth it, wasting ammo. The gentlemen next to me was firing 17 HMR, he left about the sametime.

Even today, was going to pull down the Christmas lights, nope will wait for no winds/light winds. Temps this weekend should be in the mid to high 40's.

What "impresses" me is a person (any gender) who is safe and accepts (no embraces) good advise from an experienced shooter, yet can see through the BS of a mall ninija trying to coach them.

The range I go to is a very nice range and the guys there offer to try there firearms out all the time and some day they give us free range time if we buy there ammo but is still a good deal

+2 on that one.

Actually none your choices. Seem a little condescending to me. Watching a competent shooter put tight groups in a target. Especially youngsters and females. New shooters that are competent and trying to improve their skills.
