    I went to Eagle Gun Range on ladies night Tuesday night ($5 lane, $5 rental) I was pleasantly surprised. (My only other point of reference was Bullet Trap.) Very nice range people. Everyone greeted me. There was a lady officer who helped ALOT! no man could tell me to stick my butt out and get away with you, you know what I mean! I rented a nano, because I was sure I wanted one. Also the Glock 21 and the Springfield Armory 1911. Did a definite rule-out of the Nano. The Glock 21 was pretty impressive, the SA 1911 was terrific (my eyesight got way better with that one and the Glock). After my time on the range I looked at their selection and found a used 1911 a Kimber Custom TLE II....well, I went back today and bought it. They allowed me to put 10 rounds through it and 6 of them went through the bulls eye, so yessir...I'll take it....so excited. Will need a new range bag. (I've been using a Kate Spade--you guys won't know what that is, but its a high end designer handbag) but the weight of the .45 acp is definitely testing the shoulder strap.

    With two females in the house for the last 18 years, yes, some of us guys know about a Kate Spade bag. Good for you taking the effort to try different guns out before you find the one that fits. I hope it will serve you well.

    I actually tried over 25 guns before I made the purchase. I have a little 38 snub nose revolver for carry. (can't hit the broad side of a barn with it though) Didn't like the 9mm as much as the 45 acp. (for loading or shooting) So, it came down to caliber really.

    Prices aren't great but not bad on range bags right there in the shop. I bought a rifle and bag on the same night. They were going to lend me one to take it to the car but I knew I was going to need a bag eventually and found an inexpensive option on the spot.

    They do better used gun business than the local pawn shops and their prices are better. Not super impressed with their prices on new guns, but no one is forcing me to buy them either.

    Don't pick...fair assumption that most men don't care about those things... :)

    I enjoy Eagle GR. I have not had any issues with range officers being overly zealous. And they've been helpful even to individuals that probably deserved shaming for their actions.

    One guy in a bay next to me hit the ceiling 20 feet before the backstop 5 consecutive times. He was shooting an AR standing. The range officer asked him if he needed help and they corrected it.

    I would agree on new gun prices. I bought a .38 S&W snubby from them. I could have searched and found it cheaper, but I was running out of time due upcoming hand surgery and needed something that didn't require racking of a slide. They comp'd me the rental fee (tried before I bought) and gave me two cards for free range days.

    Good people to shoot the breeze with too.

    Congrats on the purchase. Curious as to why you ruled out the Nano?
