    I have been looking forward to shooting the Ruger New Vaquero I bought nearly a month ago...as soon as local ranges open.

    There is an outdoor high power range open not too far away, but with the kids home from school for the next five months, getting permission from my B&C to go there is a non-starter........:(

    I shot one of my 510's just before dark, it was the closest thing I had to hit the steel at 60 yards from the shop.

    From behind the Commie Curtain, been shooting legally, every week. If you don't live in CA.? I mean surely if we can shoot out here everyone else must be OK?

    My range has not closed so I have been exercising most of my guns regularly.

    Like Middletown

    I always like to start a range session out with a .22, either my Beretta Model 70S or my Ruger Mk.II. Then on to the 9mm.s, again usually my Browning Hi-Power but this time I might take along my Ruger SR9c or else my CZ P07.

    I've been going to the range. The joy of belonging to a private club!

    My range is automatically social distanced. There is usually no one else there. So, it will be soon. My Model 94...

    I have a Beretta Neos. The iron sights were pitiful. The grip took some getting used to. But it shoots so well with a dot that I kept it.

    I bought this DW .22 LR and haven’t shot it yet:

    74D81F72-7085-4B4E-B840-B00E9646875C.jpeg

    I’m going shooting Sunday, but the other two .22 LRs I bought recently won’t be out of the 10-day waiting period penalty box by then :(.

    Stay safe.

    Great idea, I have shot this stock left handed and I can do it...but I'll have to take the scope off, its a "right eyed" only scope o_O left eye is all blurry looking thru it :confused:

    Two. I need to get to the next phase of load development for my:
    Cooper 52 Classic in .280 Ackley and my
    Ruger 77 African in .375 Ruger.

    I'll no doubt shoot the Cooper first.

    I got a holographic sight for my carry firearm just before ranges started to close. It needs to be properly sighted in, so that is my first and foremost. Depending how much I bring to the range, I may just "eeny, meeny, miney, mo" it for what gets shot next.

    My Shields. One in 9mm (carry gun) and one in .45 (future carry gun).

    How is the 45 shield? I had one in 40 s&w that was a handful to shoot until I put a baby Hogue slip on grip on it.

    I have a Sig 226 Legion w/ a Romeo1 site just arriving that will be screaming for range time once this situation blows over.

    I have been shooting IDPA and USPSA pistols at least weekly, but I haven't shot a rifle in a long time.
    So I have been getting my attempt at an F class .223 back in running condition and will sight it in for 200 yard plinking. The weather forecast for Friday looks good.

    My range has been open but I haven't gone to protect my wife. However now that we know that the actual mortality on this crud is a couple orders of magnitude lower than originally reported, I'll likely go. I've got new reloads for the following:

    7mm WSM Kimber 8400 Classic
    .325 WSM
    .300 WM M70 Super Grade
    .416 Rigby
    .50-110 M71

    I'll probably take the WSMs and the .416 Rigby the first trip. The WSMs are the elk rifles this year, and the .416 I need to make fired cases to get a trimmer made.

    I hope the shoot better than the 62 gr full jacket! They shoot patterns, not groups!

    In 2 different barrels (Larue & Faxon) using TAC and lastly CFE-223 I've gotten the 62 FMJs to group half way decent; 1.5MOA for 5 shots by just seating a little out from the cannelure (max mag lngth) and going with near max charges. I used FC FL sized brass with thrown charges. With both powders I'm close to 5.56 VS .223 velocities/pressure, but accuracy is OK out to 300yards. No problems staying on an 8" plate from a rest using my match gun with it's 1-6X and mixed brass.

    For 3Gun it will do.

    It's the reason I want to check out the 62 HPBTs....only a couple cents more per and hopefully they'll group better.

    It's nice. The Shields seem to handle recoil very well.

    That's good. The shield is too narrow for my hands without the added rubber. So it rotated in my hands when I shot it.

    “I live back in the woods you see, my woman, the kids and the dogs and me” I’ve been shooting from my front porch, 22 handguns yesterday. My spanking new Mark IV Competition, a Mark Iii and a Rossi Plinker. I’ve got um all about where I want um. No lock down/out here. ucm3hwc92eaz.jpg
