    How long since you have been to the range?

    Since we have gotten through the Holidays and life should be getting back to normal. It's time for me to get back to the gun range. I hate to admit it but I have not been to the range since just before Thanksgiving. Work has been a mad house. Long hours and no free time. We had some family issues that needed tending to and the usual Holiday hustle and buss-el. Which has left no time for the therapy I desperately need. So next weekend I am going, come H*ll or high water. So am I the only one that has been a slacker or are their others?

    Between rain and cold weather - two weeks. After being in a drought all of last year I'm not going to complain about the rain - I'll forego the range for a short period just to have enough drinking water.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    Hmmm - have to admit it must be around 3 weeks .......... weather and work have contrived to make it more difficult ... and as I shoot outdoor ranges most times, it's just too darned cold!

    The facts are indisputable. There is more data supporting the benefits of Conceal Carry than there is supporting global warming. If you choose ignorance, in light of all the evidence, in order to bolster your irrational fear of guns, you are a greater threat to society than any gun owner.

    About 2 hours.
    I function fired my CMMG bargain bin AR (18") and shot some steel with my S&W 1917 out in the pasture.

    It was 11 degrees when I went out so I didn't stay too long.

    I go at least once a week and sometimes more. I feel it's a crime to carry and not be proficient with your weapon. You can't be of any help to anyone if you can't hit your target. Just like a doctor or lawyer not keeping up with current technologies....

    Been a while for me as well. I have been very busy the last couple months and then there the fact that its winter. That and migraines have been hitting a far too frequent pace. Still going to try to get to the indoor range in manchester soon.
