Default Range closed for repairs

I have not been able to shoot for weeks now due to the local military Rod and Gun Club being closed for repairs. Place has probably been around since the later mid 1900s. I will have to wait until sometime in July. I belong to the US hunters Club, and we have volunteered to help repair the pistol range and running boar. Look at what I have gotten myself into....

Rewarding experience though. Question, do you speak mainly in English or German? Of is that based on social setting?

Nothing you can't smooth out with a little elbow grease. Or a lot.
Wear a mask and wash after. (lead)

I speak mainly English. Most Germans in my area speak English, and it is required in German schools. I speak only English to my kids, and my wife only speaks German to them. They learned/are learning both languages quickly that way.

Da könnten ja noch ein paar Nazis verbuddelt sein. ;-) Ich vermisse Deutschland, aber nicht wenn's ums Schießen geht. Viel Glück mit den Reparaturen.

Good for her! I was fluent in English and German when I was about 4 years old. Sadly, when My Dad's tour was up and we came back to the U.S. German went by the wayside. My 6 years sister and I would speak German and the other kids called us "Nazis". So our parents said not to speak it around other kids. This was 1948-49 era, so most people were not comfy with it. We lost it for the most part. My parents were alway amazed how quickly we had picked up German - kids can do that with ease.

Looks like you've got a lot of work to do, I'm sure it will be worth it.
