Another yes vote here. If you wanted fewer responses you should have asked how many people here don't shoot for pleasure!

When the sun rises Monday AM I will be "Killing" rocks. I cast bullets Sat. and loaded some today. I will take my .45 SA and my old Mdl.86 45-70 out in the desert and attacks those Damn rocks before they wake up.

I tell you what, people need to be more appreciative of the classic guns. They are very fun to shoot and some are very inexpensive. I mean a Mossin Nagant for $125! Everybody should have one.

Old guns are far more fun IMO. Single action and lever guns are just cool on ice. I love shooting the Garand and the '03 Springfield immensely as well. I just wish I had some muzzle-loaders to shoot as well!

I love shooting reproduction Kentucky rifles. Now I just need to get one.

With my disabilities, I kinda gave up trying the competition games I used to enjoy so much.

Nowadays, I shoot to keep what I've got (if you don't use it, you lose it).

The AUG was the most fun out of what we rented.

plinking is hands down my favorite thing to do with guns! shooting bottles full of water, cans, old fruit & veggies, clays, disobedient electronics.....line em up, mow em down......

i start smiling just thinking about it!
