    At $3, you are making it hard to say no. I will have to think about this some more. Anything and everything is allowed at the range?

    It better be, I am bringing my M1 carbine, and the few rounds I have left. If anybody else has .30 carbine rounds, we'll use them up fast!

    I also have some 9mm fmj that I can feed the glock.

    If you guys want a high-power demonstration, we can get some grapefruit or melonsand send weatherby 300 magrounds down range, although it costs almost $5 a round.

    I'll be there, and I might have the girlfriend along too. Will bring some suppressors as well, for those who haven't had the fun of shooting/being around them.

    "A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks."

    Maybe I'll make it to the next one.

    Have fun, and stay warm.

    I would love to join you guys, but I am unable to do sodue to the distance and time involved to get that far south.

    And this has got me thinking, There is not one single indoor firearmrange anywhere near me that I know of. I can shoot my bow indoors, and even shoot interactie video targets.
    I wonder if I could manage to make a few pennies by opening a range, sell several different types of ammunition, reloading supplies, and all sorts of other firearms equipment at the range. I am thinking itcould be availablefor all calibers of handguns, and .22LR rifles.
    Maybe get some shootingleagues organized, and try to forward the sport up here a little bit better than trying to get people out shooting in the snow & cold we have 6-7months out the year.

    You need to see the legal requirements for a range first.

    I haven't looked into WI's law, but saw what my little range in Mt. Pleasant, SC (where Coastal Firearms is now) went through.

    The ventilation and lead contamination control were Obaminable. He went out of business.

    we would love to have you, but I know how far away you live, so your excused Yes an indoor range done right would make lots of money. Merry Christmas

    The 2 indoor ranges near me do allow all caliber pistols and most riffles (including shotguns). They dont allow AK's because too many people were trying to sneak armor piercing ammo in. Stuff would go through the back stop and cause damage to the wall. The ranges are kinda short though, I think an indoor range that had some decent distance to it would be popular.

    I really do not see a need for an indoor range being longer than 40-feet. And this would be pretty useless for anyrifles other than the rimfire eaters.
    I do not mind shooting longguns in the cold at all sincewe have plenty of really nice outdoor rifle, trap & skeetranges around this area. But shooting a handgun with bulky winter gloves on, and losing all yourbrass in the snow is a pain in the arse.

    I would have movabletarget holders on cables with clear distance marking, different lighting scenarios for night shooting, moving targets and all sorts of other neat stuff. Maybe even a wax-projectile league? Heck i could do that anywhere, since the used brass modified to fire a 209 primer and no powder.

    Too bad lead prices have dropped so much in the last 30 years, that would be another little income. Back When I was a young'n, me and a buddy used to collect lead and sell it to metal recyclers. We would get $25.00 for an automotive battery, and way more for bullets we seived out of the outdoor backstops.

    most stand up gun fights happen at 20 feet or less.

    When I was a kid and an American River Touring Association guide we'd have the client with the lowest cut blouse get down and squint down the river.

    When I used to work my college buddy's placer claim on the Merced River we'd just point the riffle-box down stream and worry more about where we got the mud for it.

    Or did you mean rifle?

    Why don't you read what I posted earlier one more time where I stated it would be useless for anything bit rimfire rifles. I have it quoted, in red, underlined, and italics in the quote box directly below this sentence.

    Name calling Doug? How adult.

    I agree, you are not humorous

    solipsistic solecisms?My view of a word blunder is the only one that matters? I suppose that may be true.


    Why go that route?
