    Shooting overseas!

    Well I got pre-hired and will be flying out to the country
    of Norway, this coming Tuesday. Don't know how long
    I will be there but, it's a good paying welding job so..in
    these times I need to take it.

    Did some research and found a pistol club in Sarpsborg,
    a city close to where I will be staying. Membership is only
    575 krones a year roughly $95 dollars.

    Here's some pics of the indoor/outdoor ranges.





    They make you take a 6 hour class before you can shoot.
    They teach how to hold, load and fire the guns correctly. I
    don't mind taking the classes. Found out it's a 22lr revolver
    they train on.

    After 6 months you are allowed by the police to purchase any
    firearm you wish. I looked online there and saw a lot of HK's,
    Glocks, Sigs etc...not many cheap guns..just higher quality
    brands.

    The Sarpsborg Pistol Club, even has a Magnum section
    that meets once a week to shoot .357 and .44 magnums.

    MAGNUMFELT
    Deles vanligvis opp i 5 klasser:
    Klasse 1: Revolver i kaliber 357 Magnum, 357 Maximum o.l.
    Klasse 2: Revolver i kaliber 41 Magnum, 44 Magnum o.l.
    Klasse 3: Pistol i kaliber 357 Automag, 10 mm Auto, 45 ACP o.l.
    Klasse 4: Revolver i kaliber 44 Special, 45 Auto Rim, 45 Long Colt, 455 Webley.
    Klasse 5: Pistol/Revolver i kaliber .22 Long Rifle (Rekrutteringsklasse).
    I want to still keep up with you guys on this forum. Lot's of great
    people here. I'll still post here..and maybe upload some pics/range stories from the land of the Vikings

    Have a good time in Norway, Erik!
