for failing to fund Gov. Kaine's open space initiative that would add 400,000 acres to Virginia for shooting and other outdoor recreation.

This is not just something for hunters: while I love the smell of cordite in the morning, every hour spent in an indoor range is another two off our livesbecause of the crappy leaded air in there. A worthy trade perhaps: but an unnecessary one.

Plinking in the great outdoors is far more of a pleasure, sure you need walk a bit to set up the targets you knock down, but its good exercise.

And unfortunately, the only thingone can plink withwithout driving for an houraroundhere in Northern VA is a compound bow!

So make sure that those guys in the VA legislature hear from us here on this -- as well as the other gun legislation -- in the next week.
