Most fun with a gun?

    So the gun/ammo shortages and 2A attacks can make us all a little weary... Lets forget all that for a moment.

    I've been wondering a little lately, what kind of shooting activities do you all have the most fun doing?

    I really enjoy clay-pigeon shooting. There's something about shooting a moving, flying target, and doing it rather instinctively as opposed to aiming and being precise, that makes it very fun for me. Even more so when the guys put in a few bucks and play some "knock-out" games for the pot.

    I also enjoyed the few times my wife has gone shooting with me. Hopefully I can get her out a few more times. (Maybe even to the clay's range...)

    So, what do you all have the most fun doing?

    Bang, bang, bang! (Or Boom, boom, boom!)

    I just enjoy slinging lead at paper targets from 25 yards, at my local gun shop/range. I shoot at silhouette targets (torso sized). I have a Mosin Nagant rifle and a Hi-Point C9 semi-auto handgun. Both are fun, but I do love the BOOM! of the old Mosin rifle, and the looks I get and questions about the gun. Good fun and a great stress reliever! :D

    Killing werewolves...but silver prices are way up and brass is scarce....so now I have to settle for some weekend plinking with buddies.

    Walking down Leland Pistol & Rifle Club's "Ambush Alley" (outdoors with berms) with two fully loaded auto-loaders ! :D

    Taking classes at my local training facility; shooting moving targets, that sort of stuff. Love it; will keep doing it until the ammo stash runs low.

    Well, I spend most of my trigger time shooting IDPA and similar "practical" matches. (Or writing them, running them, staffing them, setting them up, breaking them down, etc., etc....actually, it's a lot like WORK! :eek: :D)

    But watching my kids start to understand the concepts and execute marksmanship principles is catching up to No. 1 pretty fast!

    Trying to print clover-leaf patterns with my T/C Contender in .22 LR.

    Thirty rounds, and I'm pretty much done... :)

    Love to watch my two boys(7yrs and 6yrs) shoot their 22's
    The joy they get when they hit the steel plate makes me smile

    I honestly have the most fun teaching new people to shoot and seeing their fear drain away into big ol' grins. I feel like I've contributed a little, moreso than sending the emails and occasional letters.

    Nothing more fun than when I hand my 8-year-old, 6-year-old or 2-year-old the single shot .22 that they call their own and see the smile on their face turn to a look of concentration as they focus on the target before them(the 2-year-old is usually just wants to pick up .22 casings instead). Then as they look up all excited as the target rings with a hit.

    I used to really enjoy the MK19 and crew served weapons ranges, but now I enjoy shooting balloons and text books from the previous semester's classes

    USPSA/IPSC and 3 gun, both shooting in them and staffing them, is really fun and us probably the most fun I have in a regular basis. However, my favorite thing (and the one I have the most fun doing) is dove hunting with my father and little brother.

    I just sold my textbooks back for $600....I had considered using them for target practice until I found out that Chegg pays decently for engineering textbooks.

    Teaching others to shoot safely and responsibly, plinking at cans and water jugs, target shooting at paper targets (especially the ones with the easy to see color hits), and advanced courses in CCW training. For me it's all good.

    Plinking, cans, clays, reactive targets actually just about anything with a gun provides me with great pleasure and always puts a smile on my face.

    I really enjoy turning someone on to shooting that has had little or no exposure at all. A couple weeks ago I took my oldest daughters boyfriend out and you could not remove the smile from his face with a crowbar. He is 21 and had never shot or handled a gun of any sort (very hard to believe but it was true). Exposed him to many different handguns, shotguns and rifles, of all sorts of action types. I would have thought his favorite would have been the AR but I could not get him off the bench with my Tikka .25/06 until the ammo ran out. He put about 150 rounds through it and would have done more. I am going to help him with his first purchase soon, can't ask for a better day than that!
