If I shoot my pellet gun or spudgun after work, does that count?

Otherwise, won't be until Sunday......

May 16, 2003, 04:54 PM
none for me, :(

maybe a few tomorrow though,,, :D

May 16, 2003, 04:55 PM
Zero here .. will have to make up for it this weekend.

Always wanted to live in the country someplace where I could walk out my front door, empty the chamber of my revolver before my morning cup of coffee, ... sort of like reville.

Different day, different gun.

Maybe one day!


May 16, 2003, 05:01 PM
Morning spent at the range with a couple buddies. Between BS sessions spent piling it pretty deep, I managed to touch off 70 rounds of 44 Mag and four boxes of 22. Now I gotta clean and reload; what a vicious cycle. :D

May 16, 2003, 05:07 PM
0 here the web area between my trigger finger and my middle finger is burnt pretty bad right now. Note to self were gloves when cutting metal with torch overhead:cuss:

May 16, 2003, 05:19 PM

But then I'm still at work so I guess that's a good thing.

May 16, 2003, 05:23 PM

I was supposed to go shooting this morning but didn't make it.
Maybe tomorrow.

I've been working all day. :D

May 16, 2003, 05:24 PM
Zip. zero. ziltch. nada. >>> 0

I'm saving all my ammo for a Saturday BLAST-O-RAMA. ;)

May 16, 2003, 05:25 PM
1. See above, employment (indentured service?) means you're at work vs. shooting during the weekdays.

2. No place to shoot in this location.

3. The citizens aren't allowed firelocks.

4. Neither are visiting GI's.

5. Wouldn't matter, I'm learning firsthand what Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is all about. Flight surgeon's working on keeping me flying with it. Typing with the left hand is a riot, too. :mad:

Before work range opens at 8 work starts at 8:30
36 rnds 45 acp thru sistema
24 rnds 357 thru S&W 13
20 rnds 9mm thru 940

What a way to start your day, nothing like the smell of gunpowder on your hands for a pick me up.

May 16, 2003, 05:38 PM
None today but 2 days ago, I shot about 300 rounds out of various guns.:D Sat or Sun I am going shooting with my wife. She has only gone maybe two times before so it something new to her still.

I bought her several guns but she never shoots.:rolleyes:

May 16, 2003, 05:39 PM
Zilch ........ http://www.patriotnetwork.net/images/smilies/weepie.gif

Mind you .... wall to wall rain today anyways as well as no time ..... an indoor range would have been needed.

At weekend tho? ..... different matter ....... :cool:

May 16, 2003, 05:45 PM

Do this again tomorrow or Sunday and we'll talk

May 16, 2003, 05:48 PM
Zip, zero, nada. I've been working seven days a week for almost a month. (And, if the gun gods bless my work, I'll get to buy a new toy for all my efforts).

Ask again in a week or two.

May 16, 2003, 05:57 PM
0 today, but did 300 rounds of 9mm monday afternoon.

May 16, 2003, 06:06 PM
I shot exactly 50 rounds of .22lr through the club's High Standard.
Tomorrow afternoon I'll shoot 45 rounds of 9mm at the district championships in Stuttgart.

May 16, 2003, 06:08 PM
0, we're 2 hours behind you, still at work.... :o

May 16, 2003, 07:02 PM
Oh it felt so good too....100 rounds though my new to me Hi Point Carbine. One of our offices I have to go to to do some work sometimes is only 10 miles from the free gun range. So sounded like a perfect excuse to work out some tension. Been almost 2 weeks since I last shot....it felt sooooooo good.

Told Darrin he should have made an excuse to come with me up there ;) lot more fun that sitting at the office D

May 16, 2003, 07:16 PM

ask me again tomorrow....

May 16, 2003, 07:18 PM
300 For me! :neener:

Got to shoot my NEW CZ100 that I picked up on tuesday. I put 200 round thru it and not one malfunction. As many people have said, the gun does have a very long trigger pull, but was easy to get used too. Shot group were very nice. A very NICE Gun.

I also put 50 rounds thru my Colt Delta Elite 10mm, And 50 thru my (now don't laugh) Raven .25 :what:

All and All a VERY nice day at the range.


May 16, 2003, 07:24 PM
in exactly one hour i'll be putting a couple hundred rounds of 8mm from a mauser or 30'06 from a garand into the enemy on MOHAA multiplayer. does that count? i love the mauser! in both games and real life!

May 16, 2003, 07:25 PM
Played hookie. Took the 10/22 and the M1A out to play today. ARMS replaced my scope mount with a new one for free because of a problem with the front screw.

Shot CCI Blazer .22
Hirtenberger 7.62
Portugese 7.62
Fed Match .308

had some nice groups. Met some folks I knew from the gun club up there. Good day.:cool:

May 16, 2003, 08:48 PM
None.:( Gotta wait till Tuesday.

May 16, 2003, 08:59 PM
Spent my morning tutoring two cadets so they can pass their firearms qualification.

Between my three bricks of CCI .22LR, and their 400 rounds of 9mm, I think I got to sacrifice a hundred rounds or so to the Range Gods.


May 16, 2003, 09:01 PM
Zip for me... damn TSA.

Looking to Sunday for an IPSC match.

May 16, 2003, 09:20 PM
None today, the patients would've been quite alarmed by gunfire in the hospital!:what: :D

500 rounds of .45 ACP and 300 rounds of 9mm last Saturday, and now that my left-hand holster has arrived I'll be back to shooting Tuesday Steel!:cool:

May 16, 2003, 10:16 PM
Today...ZERO! :(
Last Sunday (5/11)...200 rnds. :D .
Gotta work some to pay for the play! ;)

May 17, 2003, 12:30 AM
No rounds today, got to make some 8mm to play.

I'm loading 100 new rem 8mm cases with 168 grain cast lead bullets for my M48 Mauser. Just installed a Mojo front and rear peep and now working up loads to see just how good it can be! I have plenty of mil surplus 8mm, but an elegant as new M48 with new Mojo sights requires one to shoot up a hundred rounds of custom made loads -- makes a little shiver go right up my spine, if you know what I mean...

Once upon a time I was into collecting rifles, pistols, revolvers, shotguns, bayonets, knives, etc... Now I want to play with all the neat toys I have, reload for this or that. Is 2000 rounds of 30-06 too much? or 11000 rounds of other types of centerfire? .22LR don't count for much, so I don't count it. More powder and primers, I will need lots more. I must have more lead, too. Lead may be outlawed, so I must have more, much more!

No evil black rifle though. I live in the PRK and evil black rifles are not allowed for the common folk. I will require a shovel, too!

Not today. Did a total around 700 over the last two weekends and will be putting in another 300-400 this weekend and about 400 the next weekend.

I have bad habits and am investing heavily to break them. Want to be in focus from the first shot, watching the front sight like a hawk. The goal is to keep all 300 to 400 shots inside a group the size of the 10 ring at 7 yards DA offhand so I can allow myself to graduate to the 15, 25, 50 yard ranges and attempt the same thing. Not even close to what the bullseye shooters are doing one handed at 25 yards, but sufficient for this shooter.

Actually don't care where the shots go within safe margins as long as I can break those stinking habits. When the habits are tamed, all indications are that the above goal will happen.

What REALLY hurts are those five or six losers that are way outside the 7 ring.


May 17, 2003, 12:53 AM
Happiness is an afternoon off with the range open and 2 rifles in the trunk!:D
"Sacrafice to the Range Gods" eh:rolleyes: .....Does shredding your benchrest targets get the job done? Hey! It was WINDY!- OK???:banghead:

May 17, 2003, 01:39 AM
Thankfully none.

I saw this post earlier in the day when the only possible weapon to be shot was the one on my hip for most of the day. Hopefully tomorrow (today actually looking at the clock :rolleyes: ) I can get out for some recoil therapy :D .


May 17, 2003, 01:44 AM
I had a chance to go shooting w/ a couple guys from work...today was a good day :D

May 17, 2003, 01:53 AM
I ran 150 rounds of 9mm thru my 1976 vintage Browning Hi Power this afternoon.
Today was supposed to be my last day off, had to take my Wife to the ER when I got home! Dr. said she has to be off her feet until Wensday at least. No standing, minimal walking and no driving so I'll have to miss this 4 day work cycle to take care of the kids and be the Wife's servant. Hopefully it'll turn out to be nothing serious!

May 17, 2003, 02:08 AM
None today, wind was gusting 40 knots, but most evenings I pop off 10-20 at a disk set up 95 yards from the back door. I did cast some wadcutters though.


May 17, 2003, 03:22 PM
Weekly trip to the range complete.

Well over 300 rounds sent down range.

Mike Irwin
May 17, 2003, 03:55 PM
I do that in my back yard and I blow holes in my new fence, send bullets into the next community, and likely end up arrested and losing my CCW.

I wanna live in the country...

May 17, 2003, 04:24 PM
I wanna live in the country...

Country? I'm ten minutes from the nearest big mall. By surface streets. ;)

May 17, 2003, 04:35 PM
Sure, I could go outside my door & start shooting and while not totally unheard of in the urban, gang infested sprawl of Los Angeles, I prefer the structure of the organized shooting facility :D

Mike Irwin
May 17, 2003, 05:12 PM
Any place where you can shoot in your back yard is country.

If I draw a 1 mile radius circle around my home, there's nearly 200,000 people who live in that circle.

May 17, 2003, 05:58 PM
let's see....

50 x .32
50 x .38
50 x .45
100 x .40
200 x 9
8 x .44 cap and ball

Had a fun day today, now I get's to clean 'em all.


May 17, 2003, 06:03 PM
Shot over 500 rounds of .22 today. Tomorrow will be centerfire rifle day.Probably 200 to 300 rounds.

May 17, 2003, 06:38 PM
The IPSC match got rained out today, so I had to settle for 80 rds throught my Yugo SKS, 40 through my Kimber .45 and 25 through my P-32.

May 17, 2003, 06:46 PM
Ok, when I voted yesterday, I put down zero, but I sent a little over 600 downrange today.

May 17, 2003, 07:39 PM
Me? Believe it or not None. I had to work.:mad:

May 17, 2003, 08:05 PM
Spent the day setting up my new MEC 9000G. Weather permitting, skeet tomorrow morning.


May 17, 2003, 09:16 PM
Sporting Clays today, 50 rounds plus a few extra of 12 gauge. 25 bird course, I shot a 19 and 17 :D

May 17, 2003, 09:59 PM
1/2 box of 9mm Win. white box thru PM9 while waiting on a student to show up early this morning. Bass Pro Shop called yesterday to say that they could fill my rain check for 30 boxes at $3.88, so I had to make sure it goes "bang". ;)

Stay Low
May 17, 2003, 10:04 PM
25 rounds of .40 thru Glock 27
50 rounds of 9mm thru Glock 34
74 .410 thur Beretta EELL
25 12 ga thru Beretta EELL

May 17, 2003, 11:46 PM
I didn't shoot any, but I did buy 500 rounds of 40 S&W but only 80 of some .223. I need to go back and get some more...

May 18, 2003, 12:14 AM
Hi, Mike:
Let's see, how many people live with a 1 mile radius of me. Two straight south and four to the southwest. The folks to the south west shoot as much as I do.


May 18, 2003, 12:25 AM
Ran two mags through my Sten today. 64 rounds in all. Kicked myself all the way home because I didn't bring anything else to shoot. :banghead:

...but I did do 30 strokes and dryfires from holster while my coffee brewed, an hour ago.

May 18, 2003, 07:36 AM
finally got the bushy in the black at 100 yds:D

still needs minor messin' with though...


May 18, 2003, 08:28 AM
When I do shoot -- it's two boxes of Winchester white box: 200 rounds. Haven't lately though because I don't have a job to afford the ammo.:(

May 18, 2003, 10:15 AM
does the airsoft count ?? I emptied a bottle of gas and used around 500 pellets .

May 18, 2003, 10:49 AM
Ahh, leaving in 15 minutes to go shooting. Should be about 150 of 9mm, maybe 50 from my .22 rifle.

Man I wish my P22 was back from S&W... :(

May 18, 2003, 07:11 PM
i'll be shooting 5 or 6000 next week

I shot 5000 last week, and about 2000 the week before that

Sometimes work is good :-)


May 18, 2003, 08:19 PM
Four rounds of Skeet = 100 rounds of 12 ga tgt loads

May 18, 2003, 08:29 PM
About 180. Some .22, some .45, and a lot of .223 from my Daewoo. I discovered that my 40-round USA mag really is a piece of junk. It gave me a failure to feed on the first 15 rounds (after that, I manually emptied it and loaded the ammo into a GI mag). I also shot down a thrown clay with the Daewoo. One throw, one shot, one hit. :D

May 18, 2003, 09:04 PM
How about tonight?:D Who's going to fight at high noon? Did my usual 200ish.

Just in back for the Simpsons final episode (and THR).:D

May 18, 2003, 09:16 PM
None darn it and thanks for asking.:(

Oh yea, but thats about to change. 15 more days. Woo Hoo.

Dave Markowitz
May 18, 2003, 09:17 PM
Popped off ~115 9mmP, ~30-40 .38 Special, and a bunch of .22 LR on this fine Sunday.

May 18, 2003, 09:51 PM
Shot my XD9, along with a fully auto MP5. :evil:

The Kidd
May 18, 2003, 09:56 PM
Wonderful day here in MI! My Son and I shot .22 WMR @ 100 yds. for about 100 rounds. Shot about 50 7.62x39 at the same distance and then crept up closer and shot approx 200 rnds of 9mm and .45. The boy had not shot at that range and I think he was happy/proud that he could hit consistantly. It is the sort of day that makes you happy to be alive, American, a father... .

May 18, 2003, 10:27 PM
No rounds through the barrel this weekend, but i DID go to a gunshow and lust over some Yugo SKS's and a few Mosin-Nagants's (sigh)

May 18, 2003, 11:28 PM
This afternoon, 41 rounds. I shot a couple of targets for the mail in match, (proving again that I'm no poker player.)
Also did a little miscellaneous blasting because the guns were there and I had ammo and targets.

My sons shot a few targets too and then we went trout fishing. Overall we did better shooting than fishing.

May 19, 2003, 02:10 AM
I try to put a few rounds through something every day... now that we live out in the middle of nowhere and all. :p

Lately, I've been playing with my new CZ452 Varmint, the Marvel conversion on various 1911s and my new carry gun, Kahr P9 covert. Can't say the Kahr is quite pleasant but I'm loving the CZ and the Marvel unit. ;)
