    A lot more people at the range today

    Went to the range this morning, usually bump into about 3-5 other shooters. It was easily four times that, good to see the activity but I kind of like the range to myself. More fallout from the election, makes scents after the run on the gun shops. I think the more interest the better, silver lining maybe?

    No. It's deer season.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    In this shotgun only deer season state, saw a lot of semi-auto pistols and rifles.

    You are right about the election stuff; I went to the range yesterday on my day off, and it was packed; Almost everybody I saw had some type of AR, AK or SKS and a lot of handguns for CCW. Most of the handgun crowd was next to me, and all said they were scheduled for CHL classes in the coming weeks.

    Of course, i must have written this websites address down a dozen times. So moderators, you can blame a sudden surge of membership in the Texas area on me......

    I'm glad my ranges are for club members only! I remember the days of being around anyone who felt like driving 2 miles off road to a range.

    When the wind is from the west, we can hear the range, it seemed like a war over there.
