    six guns, uncountable number of rounds... and nothing to report

    Range was JAMMED with people. I don't think I've ever EVER seen it like this. Good time to be a range owner! Chatted with the owner to find out WTH I stole from my father in law today. Chatted with my conceal instructor who suddenly said excuse me and ran off to another part of the building... after she heard a slide being racked. Damn my hearing is bad. We're going back tomorrow morning to shoot SWMBO brand new .380 and three different custom loads, and a special 9mm load the reloader said I was really really going to like. Need to double check my .22 red dot sight and the different rectile settings, and I want to run some more ammo through the P22.

    Maybe a report tomorrow, LOL

    Well I had a great range day today, haven't gotten around to telling about it yet.

    What does SWMBO mean? I see it a lot and couldn't find it in the list of acronyms.

    Laws in MI are actually pretty open... BUT, they have some strange quirks
    With out a conceal pistol license, can not carry at a school
    with a CPL, can conceal carry in the parking lot
    with a CPL, can open carry in the school

    Similar in a bar

    Restaurants get their own quirkiness

    How to work today. I want to go to the range in the morning. Wife wants to do something else. :(

    Last time off I went to the range, it was a mud pit with the melting snow and traffic.

    During the weekends, if you're not at the range office by 0830, prepare to wait. I have seen 20 deep waiting for a space to open up, estimated shooting positions at the rifle, pistol and muzzleloading range is at or just about 50.

    Weather has no effect either!

    Ok, went back today, mucho quieter.

    Doubled up on the hearing protection, man did that make a diff!

    SWMBO fired a LOT through her new Bersa .380, tested some special ammo from the local commercial reloader. She's going to stay with his std load. She's found the CT does not match the iron sights, so I'm going to have to make a slight adjustment.

    I re-aligned my red dot on the 22/45. It's hitting really nice now. Also tested 3 of the 4 rectile options, and they all are hitting the same spot.

    Then I played with my XDM9 :) Reloader gave me a few 147gr bullets to try. Holy crap were those sweet. I should have saved a couple when I ran the target out to 50'. Had a blast today!

    Wife stayed home. Did the range trip: muddy, wet, cold and slight wind. The crowd was small, even at 1400 hours. Stayed for 1.5 hours. Took the Glock 19 and Browning .22LR. Nothing special, shot maybe 50 rounds of 9mm and 100 round .22LR.

    I went to the range today. Didn't shoot, just re-newed my membership. Wish I would have had my stuff. You can shoot free when you pay your membership. Maybe they'll give me a rain check.

    Same here! The wife got me annual membership for $100 and shoot as many times as you want; but, lately the range is just plain nasty for walking, driving, etc.
