    So close....

    My wife wanted a larger place for us, so she bought us a new house (hey, she paid cash, I won't have a mortgage). She got a great deal, the only drawback is that it is 20 minutes farther out of town. The range that I usually use is now a 35 minute drive. We were driving around the neighborhood, and there it was- a sign saying "Gun Club 1000 feet). I was thrilled to find a place so close. We drove to the range to check it out, only to find that it's shotgun- trap/skeet only! Crap!. Las Vegas is building a new outdoor public range, which will be fairly close. But they just broke ground last week, so it will be at least a year before it's open. Guess I'll just have to drive. Maybe take the range bag with me, and go after work.

    I always enjoyed my visits to Los Wages. I'd always sneak in from the death valley side and not deal with the traffic from L.A.
    No house payments ? lucky devil...

    Just over a half an hour to the range aint so bad. I've been doing that for years.
