    First time shooting indoors, and my Beretta 92FS!

    A buddy of mine managed to find an indoor range we could go to, so we decided to check it out, rather than trying to shoot out in the cold. It's about 30 miles north of where I live, which isn't too bad. We get there, and come to find out they have annual membership for 30 dollars. That's a heck of alot better than the 100 bucks my Dad spends to be a member of an outdoor range. So we both sign up, and rather than paying 15 dollars to shoot, we only pay 7. I really do like indoor shooting ranges better, because you don't have to wait for a seize fire to be called to go change targets, plus it's nice and warm!

    Anyway, I finally got to shoot my new Beretta 92FS. It's one sweet shooting gun, and very comfortable, even more so than my G19. I was getting pretty consistent groups at 10 yards (1-2"). Looks like I'll be keeping this one in my arsenal!

    I go to an indoor range and enjoy it for the same reasons you mention! As far as your Beretta 92FS goes, well, class is class!

    Indoor ranges have their benefits, no doubt. I very rarely use them, however, because of their absolutely "static" nature. Admittedly, it helps that I am usually the one running the range, so I choose the drills!

    And the 92 is a fine - if much maligned - pistol. It might not be the greatest combat pistol in history, but it certainly is accurate and soft shooting.

    (BTW, it's cease fire...)

    Congrats on finding a range and a fine gun. I really like the 92FS.

    BTW, and FWIW, it's one of the few guns that the manufacturer approves of loading a round directly into the chamber and dropping the slide. That's a good way to chamber a SD round because it completely eliminates any possibility of setback.

    To be honest I've only been to an indoor range once. I live out in the country so just shooting in the backyard is just too tempting as the price is right for this guy. The warm temp. in there sure would be nice this time of year though. Glad you found a place that works for ya.

    I love my 92FS as well. That slide is like it's on glass! Never had ANY problems with it at all. Beretta puts out quality products... period.

    I am a strong believer that one must shoot a Beretta on the range to truely appreciate just how great a handgun it really is. Natural pointer and great shooter and very accurate. Your Beretta will serve you well for many years.

    I've always been a Beretta fan. I like the 92 series of pistols, but dont care much for any of their other handguns. I love their shotguns too.

    Glad you like the Beretta. That is what I have to carry on duty. Nothing wrong with them. I'm just not thrilled with 9MM FMJ (hardball). I'd rather carry a 38 Special with 125 SJHP 38 Special +P instead of hardball. The good thing about Beretta is they are easy to work on.

    I like shootin' indoors - not only for the 'indoor' comfort, but the ability to push a button to move my target without having the entire line cease fire before I walk up to an outdoor target - lazy I know!

    I loved my Beretta 92FS, but traded it in for a subcompact XD that fit my hand better. It was always a reliable and accurate tool for me. I'm looking forward to the Storm Subcompact!

    Here's "my" M9. Put another 300 or so rounds through it last week (familiarizing a colleague who is going to Baghdad with the system), no problems whatsoever.

    Shooting indoors has its place. it is good for basic marksmanship practice and accuracy testing at different distances in a controlled environment.

    Beretta. They sure have been making fine firearms for a mighty long time.
    And they sure do have all the bugs worked out of feed reliability by now...that's for certain.
