    Hi there. I'm baaack from the Range! I finally got a little time off to actually go and it was even warm enough to enjoy the day. There were a few people out there and it's really only a rifle range cause the closest target stand is 25 yards.

    I brought My Ruger P345 which performed excellent, not a problem at all the I even hit the target a couple of times. LOL.. Actually I hit it quite a few times.

    Then I took out My Star Firestar M-40. Not a bad little gun,,, heavy and a little snappy but right on target also and not a problem feeding at all.

    Next was the Taurus P92-AR. My first time shooting it since I bought it last month. It ate everything I could throw at it and it was very accurate.

    Thought I might have a little fun and took out the Phoenix arms HP22 to just plink with. Lots of fun but it's pretty loud for a little 22.

    Then I went for the Bang maker and pulled out the Yugo SKS. Only had one Stove pipe on that one but I know it was my fault too. I had a little trouble with loading it. After that it went through a bunch of stripper clips without a problem at all.

    And for the Grand Finale I unleashed the Ruger 10/22 international for the first time. Real accurate also. I got through by plinking the corners off the targets and letting them fall to the ground. LOL... Of course I picked them all up and swept up all the brass. I'm neat. LOL!!!!

    oh, and something did happen at the range today that had a few of the others just shaking our head at the guy.

    He and his Buddies were shooting rifles and one handed his buddy a rifle and started to tell him that it had a kick to it as he put it up to his shoulder and put is eye to the scope he pulled the trigger. Bam, the scope hit him right above the eye. Didn't cut him but I bet it will leave a bruise tomorrow.

    I went to the range too, for the first time in about 2 months.:uhoh: Took all my carry guns. Luckily, I'm still current with them. But that's no excuse to be away that long. I gotta start getting there at LEAST every 2 weeks.
