Several years back I made it a habit of always carrying a camera to the firing range with me. A "kodak moment" would appear from time to time and I would snap upon it.The pictures added much to my hobby but like most pictures they found a home in a drawer at the house.Over the years my wifey has ventured into many "crafts". A few years back she was introduced to scrapbooking.As most of you know these books are just fancy photo albums which have a common theme.I have a shooting partner who was a paratrooper during WWII and he happen to be in some of my range pictures.After two years of procrastinating and with much help from my craftwife, I presented my friend with a scrapbook entitled "Mr. Paul".In truth, I didnt want to give it up. I plan to make one for myself in the near future. Fortunately I keep some notes on my range visits and I was able to incorporate the notes pertaining to my friend into the scrapbook. Scrapbooking is time consuming but you can assembly a personal history which is as accessable as your coffee table.

Nice idea and historians and geneologists will love you. Me, I cover my tracks, burn my diplomas, write the schools and tell 'em I died (and sign my brother's name). I'm invisible! :D

I thought that would be a good idea as well.

When I went to the range with my camera I was told
they were prohibited. no recording devices.

I guess I can understand why

That's not a bad idea.

What would be really cool would be if you included some other stuff from the range visits, like the occasional paper target with lots of holes through the X ring.
