    Went to the range this past Monday. The day was just too nice for an indoor range. Flame me if you must. I went to Carters Country North.
    Had an enjoyable afternoon. The place was not very busy so lots of lanes to choose from. The target holders have recently been rebuilt. All of the lanes were in good repair and recently swept of brass. The RSO was friendly and we chatted about how many of the 380 EZ's he said he is seeing. Plenty of spotting scopes and rests. All in all it was a good session.
    Their by the gun and shooter prices still sucked 2 shooters 2 guns 1 lane $28 and change. SGA charges less and does not count my guns or put that damn tape on the trigger guard. Now CC even puts a wrist band on people.
    And I didn't see any decent deals on ammo, but they have all you could want.
    I will probably go back but not often at those prices. Mostly what I want in a range is good service at the counter and to be left alone. It was nice not feeling spied on. Although I did notice quite a bit of video equipment everywhere but I guess that's to be expected

    As John Wayne likely cautioned Gabby Hays several times when the Injuns are circling the wagons it aint no time for target shooting. Why do most of this crowd want to waste precious ammo?

    Because most of us enjoy shooting. I shot more often when I was competing compared to how I shoot now, but proficiency fades without practice.

    Because I like to practice to keep my skills up and if possibly, get better. Are you seriously questioning the point of trying to become a better shooter?

    I hear ya. Thanks. I used to enjoy it too. Now that I am old and senile it’s a pain in the coola to go shoot once a year to keep my toting card up to date. It sorta embarrassing to the eager young bucks who I qualify with cause I nearly always out all of em. lol

    When I got my LTC, I hadn't been shooting in eight years, so this is what the target looked like (used a Kel-Tec P11):

    Bit of practice, and now I'm back to my previous skillset:
