    Well, we don't have an outdoor range in our city, indoor either. I have to drive 50 miles each way to shoot. As for the hot brass problem, many ladies would treasure enough cleavage to catch brass. I have not yet had a problem with SR9c spitting brass back at me.

    So, I guess you're using one of them sticky holsters.

    This is not right. I REALLY want to shoot free but because of a cruel twist of fate, will never experience the joy. Life is indeed cruel. The big o should do something about this injustice.

    I'm sure he would be willing to issue an Executive Order to have the rest of us pay for your operation.

    That's all of the politics I will post.

    Yea, I've had hot brass go down my shirt collar and end up getting some very minor burns. You've heard of line dancing right? Well...

    I invented a new range line dance, I named it.
    "The Two Step Firing Line Jig Keeping the Weapon Pointed in a Safe Direction". Best performed listening to the Bee Gee's, Jive Talking.

    I don't know what's worse, getting hot brass inside the shirt, or getting popped in the forehead from ejected brass every shot?
    I think, therefore I am...

    I think that it is a good idea to shoot in your regualr daily wear every now and then, it might make you change what you wear. But when you are trying to improve your shooting, dress in a fashion that doesn't interfer with your concentration.

    $12/day? Holy crap, I pay $20/year and it's not uncommon for me to be the only one there.

    This first time that I took my wife shooting, I placed a ball-cap on her head and explained it would help keep the brass out of her cleavage.

    However, being a fashion-first kind of gal (didn't want to mess up her hair), she shot without it and took hot brass on the very first magazine.

    Is that uphill both directions??
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    Hope you were a gentleman and fished it out for her.

    My favorite girlfriend and shooting partner was told this tidbit by a very helpful Rangemaster...Don't dance; grab the shell through your shirt and pull out till it cools.

    Politicians and diapers have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly, and for the same reason.

    And I was pleased with $12 for the day! The indoor range I usually go to is $15 or $17 for the HOUR (I forget which) which is why I only go on Mondays when ladies shoot free!!

    It can also be embarassing when you bend over at the office and a shell falls out of your pocket and bounces a few times on the floor during a conference call.

    ... especially after a long lunch break ;)
