No, Pops is recoverying from back operation and we just hired yard crew to try and get the property cleaned up. Too much work to keep this place up and we just get one thing fixed and another breaks. Life of a home owner.

I need to get both parents healthy and then we can start to look for a place to live but it has to be near a VA hospital in case my health goes South again. Still a buyers market and getting this place fixed up and ready to sell is a full time occupation.

Shooting is my stress relief and I just invested in 1,000 rds of 9mm. My last skeet rd was depressing but a bad day at the range is still better than a good day at home.

roanoke va VA is good, but western va is new england all over again. you need to go towards the coast to get better weather...like va beach etc...
and, va beach has a public skeet/trap range.

Any specific towns other than Va beach ? Heard wonderful things about the mountainous areas, lots of timeshares, good fishing, hiking, skiing. But I think your right, the coastal areas would have milder weather.

hampton roads is in the south-eastern most corner of va. go any lower and youre in the swamps of n.c..
anything east of i95 is nice weather. anything west of i95 is 4 seasons. anything in the mountains is conn all over again with snow tires, plows, and slick roads. people in the west are....i'll hold my tongue. people on the east coast have jobs and money because of the navy/military presence. and they have codes where you cant toss your old washer out the window and use it for a goat pen.
living in richmond is like living in hartford. need i say more?
live near d.c. and you get liberals all over agian and traffic.
west gets rain and storms and floods. east gets hurricanes. choose you poison.

That's the Mossberg SA-20 I have, but it's two tubes and 5 Chokes, and two Stocks with the flex system, and Stock spacers...MzGrn wants her own so I'll be shooting this at S&H,..and I may bring my AK 12 Ga. "For goofs and Giggles"

True, every Diamond Grade that I have handled has been cast for a rightie. I bought two Diamond Trap models in Germany in 85 before the dollar was devalued, and made a bundle when I sold them back here.
I still like that engraving pattern, though.
