    Cold out today, but I took the XD-9 to work, and stopped on the way to put 4 cans of old diet cola out of its misery. So about 5 hrs ago.

    Not a lot of shooting, but I did manage to get all 4, but they really did not put up much resistance.

    I went last night actually.

    I didnt shoot though. We stopped at the local big gunshop as ammo is cheaper there, and to grab another Wilson mag for my Kimber, then hit the range. by the time we got there, we only had an hour to shoot. I brought my Mossberg 590, the wifes Mil Pro PT111, and my Kimber so me and wifey could get some time with all three weapons. An hour might have been ok, except that the place was flooded with knuckleheads, one of which had put out one the target carriages on the rifle range by shooting at it accidently, and the rest of the folks were breaking all kinds of range rules, not to mention common sense. The guys at the counter had their hands full, So I opted not to be in a huge hurry to get time in and deal with that nonsense, and wifey agreed.

    Im going back tuesday though, thats for sure!

    You are all SO fortunate! The range I use gets almost inaccessable when the weather is like it is up here (snow and 3 above). Dry firing may be a good exercise but nothing beats live firing, and it will be late March or early April before I can get out to the range.

    How long since you have been to the range?
