Nothing like having a range to yourself

I got some of the self-defense shooting enthusiasts from my synagogue together at my gun club on X-Mas morning. Of course, the rest of the club members were home opening presents, so we had all of the lanes to ourselves. We put a lot of lead downrange and tried each others' guns. It was both fun and valuable training as well.
If only the liberal anti's in our congregation could have seen us!
well i did not shoot christmas morning, but got some in today after we got the tree down.
An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.

That's great! How many folks did you have with you? Gotta admit I spent most of yesterday asleep in my new recliner ... it's soooooo choice.
Sounds like you had a nice high quality fun morning of shooting.
I love to hear that!

I hope you got a group deal on the ammo...:)
Moseltoff, from one of those opening gifts on Christmas. A great way to celebrate Christmas and Hannkah (sorry sp white hick)

Bought 300 rounds of ammo yesterday... got the wife to check out a Stoeger Cougar, Olyarms flattop, and a Taurus PT22, she says the PT22 and the flattop are "more her speed"... guess I better pick one of them up.. lol
If I actually had a range I could go to I would have done the same.
Some of you asked for statistics. Out of a congregation of ninty five families, I am personally aware of seven who own guns (so the real number might be two or three times that). Two of those seven barely know which way to point one (one bought .38 SPL revolver ammunition for his 0.380 semiauto pistol). A couple only carry in their cars. The other 3 shoot, carry and/or compete with some degree of regularity (one works security and one's a recently retired police detective). I think I'm the only one in the bunch who has committed to carrying a gun whenever I'm out of the house.
The lunatic anti's in the group probably outnumber the gun friendly's by 4:1. They support the Brady Campaign and attended the Million Mom March a few years back. They invent statistics like "most gun owners are killed with their own guns." They act like a liberal social view is required of all Jews.
Well, I am pretty liberal on most things but not the right to self defense, so our little "temple defense league" will continue to get together. Afterall, someone's got to be ready when Jihad comes to our town!
