    Which gun are you going to pull the trigger on first when you are allowed to go to the range again?
    My Rossi92 has seen a come back as my truck gun since I've been relegated to reviewing my paycheck for nothing.
    The one day I didn't have it, a coyote ran across the road about 25 yards in front of me and into my neighbors field.

    I really want to take my FAL out. It's my favorite semi auto. My AR is cheaper to shoot and is silly accurate, but I just love my FAL.

    I just picked up a Kimber k6s that my local gun shop has had since Thursday and keeps telling me he "hasn't had time to do paperwork" on the FFL transfer yet. This might be the last time I use them, because my range is still open and I want to go shoot that gun!! This is the 3rd transfer I've done there and I'm always given a hard time about not buying it from them, even though I always give them a chance to match, or even just come close to, the price I found.

    Hi...
    Never stopped going to the gun club. One if them is closed by order of the board of directors, but the other one remains open.
    Spent about 4 hours there last Sunday and about 3 hours there yesterday.
    First gun my son and I are shot yesterday was a brand new Marlin 1894 lever action rifle in .44Magnum that I bought Saturday at a local gun shop.
    Well pleased with initial accuracy tests out to 25yds and it functioned with no issues
    with handloads of 240gr commercial cast coated LSWC over 10.2gr of Unique.

    I plan on bringing my Ruger .45, AR-15, and a Colt 22LR. That will be on the first day

    44 mag in a lever gun would be cool. In reality it would cover 90 percent of my rifle needs.

    My range is just a piece of desert I own, but I've been so busy with car and house projects, that I havent had any time, really.
    My L1A1 and Cetme are both calling to me

    We enjoyed shooting the Marlin. Not quite as nicely finished as my Cimarron 1873 lever action with octagon barrel in .45Colt but the accuracy potential is there, so I am confident we can dial it in at 100yds.

    Backyard range here also, so never stopped. This weekend I tested a new 3Gun load and sighted in my match AR. Then I played with it at 200 & 300 on steel. Also practiced rifle on SAT and shot pistols with my son yesterday. Next load testing project is going o be testing a batch of HORN 62grn BTHPs which appear to be a Midsouth exclusive. On sale their comparable to HORN 62 FMJ in price, so IF I can squeeze a couple more .1's out of them, it may be worth it.

    I NEED to start practicing in anticipation of matches starting up.....

    It's out in the woods shooting season now for me. But it's been dang cold and snowy.

    I'm hoping to get out next Saturday and shoot this.


    First range session resulted in a problem and it went back to the factory. Came back fixed up. Need to test it out again, and put it on a sand bag.

    My Weatherby Vanguard in 223. Haven't shot it yet, bought it over the winter and still haven't gotten to take it out.

    Those bullets are great in my 22-250. My AR slings them everywhere.

    It's funny how every barrel is a law upon it's self....I've got 250 to test and 3 other .223/5.56 rifles, so it should shot reasonable well in something. Luckily it's not like finding out your gun shoots a $.50 cent bullet like crap after buying a bunch......BTDT.

    I'm in Texas. Shooting ranges are essential businesses.

    Marlin 45-70.

    Indoor ranges are open here so I’ve been shooting handgun and AR pistol but need more than 25 yards to test rifle loads.

    I usually start a range session with a 22lr so probably either my Single Six or latest acquisition a Beretta Neos with red dot I am enjoying. Probably followed with Service Six (my avatar) with 38 Special reloads.

    I have a new to me Bersa in .380 I have never fired, so it will most likely be that one.
