I didn't shoot, this weekend, at all, but I did join a new shooting club, where it is MANDATORY that all participants wear eye and ear protection!!!

Nice guns; nice family; nice day at the range. Please be safe.

NICE COLLECTION. Had a funeral to go to but also thought of going to the range. Wish I could have got a little time in.

That looks fun. I also got to the range on July 4. If that is not a second amendment day, I do not know what is. :)

Great pics! I was fortunate enough to be able to put some downrange too with some lived ones. Can't imagine a better way to spend the 4th!

Yeah, we shot a bunch, too. That was our firework's for the 4th.:D I think the Rem 870 took a beating. A few screws are loose and I need to throw some loctite on it now.

I didn't leave the house - spent most of the day in front of the TV watching DVDs of "The War" by Ken Burns. Guys, if you've never seen this series, you should. Its the story of World War II as told by a number Americans from a cross section of society; some were fighting in the war and some were still in the US. Amazing pictures, footage, and interviews. This should be required watching for every American and I thought the 4th was a perfect day for it.

Great pics. We took a couple friends out for their first time shooting on the 4th. Doesn't get much better.

Great pictures! I went shooting with a few friends of mine and we ran out of ammo and had to call it a day.:( Then I had barbeque at my brother-in-law's new home. If I may brag,my 1911's are always a hit at the range. Everyone loves 'em.
