Smile Range Report - Who went shooting today?

OK, I need a shooting fix, even if it's vicariously from y'all.

So, hang on a minute while I open my bottle of Hoppes #9, tell us about your day shooting while the rest of us enjoy the aroma of good ol' #9.

I never shoot on the weekends, the ranges are packed and you never know who's going to be there. I prefer week days when the old fart squad is in the house.

Yeah, me too, Chuck. Plus range fees are much cheaper on weekdays when there's almost no one there. Folk in the LGS are really friendly when you're the only one there.

Sure hope someone posts a report. But if not, the thread can stay open for next time.

Mike, shooting AR-15s is fun too. It's been way too long since I've shot mine. I just don't get much thrill shooting it indoors at 25 yards.

Didn't shoot today but did a gun show to get bullets and some powder, Looked for a new Kimber in 9mm but no one had anything in a 4in gun.

I went to a wedding reception. Maybe it was a shotgun wedding? I sure felt like I was forced to go at gun point!

Tomorrow will be Sunday Funday at the range.I have 9 mags preloaded and 350-400 rounds ready to fire.Our range has 18 stalls and is usually packed,which I love.I can walk around and view all the different kinds of pistols/rifles and get the chance to watch and learn.

Was there on Sunday. Had kind of weird day...shot better with the Sig than the Kim which is unusual. My primary goal was to sight in my M&P 22 with my new Dawson sights. Let me tell you my groups were the best with those sights! Also, my GSG 22 (1911) was shooting right 3 inches so I fixed that as well. The sights on that gun are very easy to adjust with just my finger pressure but still for some reason I shot better with soft triggers that day.
Lastly, I took 4 hits to the forehead with brass with the Kimber so something is brewing. And I pick up my new TLE II stainless this afternoon.

Sounds like it's spring time! Can't wait to here about your TLE.
