Went to the range Saturday
 
Well I tried to go Friday I live in Bristow VA. its in the DC metro area and the ranges are all pretty busy but I figured if I went early I might get in, got to the NRA range and the line was out the door and it was going to be at least an hour so I quickly drove over to another close by range... same thing so I went to 1 more range that's kinda high priced and don't really like the staff there anyway it was the same... so I went next morning to a range in West VA. which is about an hour and 20 minutes away but it's a great range (or at least I think so) its outdoors and has a bunch of steel targets out to 50 yards on the pistol side. I brought 300 rounds of.45, 100 of .380 and 50 rounds of some .44 mag hot home defense rounds I loaded at my brother in laws house at Thanksgiving shot everything except for 26 of the .44's those babies really bang that steel. It was the first time out with my new Colt CE 1911 I shot about 100 or more flawless rounds... well its hard to say which one out of the 3 is best shooter I do like the Caspian feel and they point and shoot great and one day I'll hit that orange dot in the center, although the targets were at 10 yards the 1 one the bottom was shot with the .45's,.44 and .380 most of the shot were at the steel targets, lot more fun gonging steel rather then punching paper.

What range you goto in WV? I usually goto my Dads in Maryland but I always like checking out new ranges. I'm in Charles Town btw.

Its "Tango Down" in Hedgesville, WVA, not to far from Charles Town it would be worth your drive. They have a website for more info:cool: Tango Down Pistol & Rifle Gun Range
