    Its range day!

    Just wanted to brag a little bit, Today is Range Day! I just stopped home to grab some lunch, and by the time the day is done, 5-600 of 45ACP who knows how much 223 and a handful of 308 will have been sent downrange, all while on the clock and my personal ammo supply isn't touched.

    There is no static stand on the line and shoot, it will all be from vehicles, barricades, shoot houses and from the towers.

    Have fun in your cubicles today!

    Well I got to fire like 1,000 rounds of 5.56 ball and a whole lotta blanks all none static over the past 6 weeks that everyone paid for. Closest thing to a cubicle I have is a flak jacket.

    But your day sounds like a lot more fun.

    Do you get to fire from any moving vehicles though?

    I had 3 range days last week where I shot a buncha ammo but It was at my expense,granted reloading and casting my own bullets makes it really cheap,tell me where you can buy a 100 rounds of 45acp for around 5-6 dollars,If I had to buy retail I would only shoot about once a month and just enough to stay proficient.32.00 for 100 rounds of 45 ACP is crazy.What really sux is due to my injury I can't do reactionary drills like when I was healthy,so my shooting technique is be fast be deadly

    I hate you.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    I am a defense contractor. I may be sitting on my in front of a computer, but y'all are paying for it. So I don't begrudge you a little plinking ammo, Sixto. Shoot well!
