Our range (local gun club--VERY rural) has been closed the whole stinkin' summer, due to extreme drought and corresponding fire danger. So, yesterday, I carved out some time and went to the range. (It was a gorgeous day, with mixed clouds and sunshine, a couple of flakes of snow and about 30 degrees, and 10-15 mph wind)
I took a Carbine class from our local county SWAT guys in July, and did a hasty (and rough) zero there, that I was unsatisfied with. So, I finally had the chance to really dial in my new Aimpoint T-1, and the folding Troy Tritium sights from LaRue. I was very, very pleased.
Then I set up one of my "bad guy" photo targets from LE targets, and practiced what I learned at the carbine class. It is absolutely amazing (and frightening from a $$ perspective) how quickly you can burn thru multiple 30 round mags. Then when I shot out my AR mags, I transitioned to my 1911 with follow-up shots. What a blast

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!
Train hard, live easy.
It's nice to have wide-open space to have local ranges. That's one thing I miss about eastern WA.

I hear ya about the fire danger. I finally got my black powder guns out this month after a self imposed ban on their use because of the drought and high winds here in western Oklahoma.
Glad you had a great time Chaplain Scott. The cooler weather is sure a nice change.

Sounds like a good day. Better squeeze in some more before the weather really goes to crap. Looks like we're headed into winter in a hurry this year. Makes sense though, since last winter was so mild.
