    Prior to getting my CHL last winter I promised myself I would make a trip to the gun range at least once a month so I joined one of the local clubs to get away from the public range knuckleheads. As I work a 4 day work week I loaded up my gear and headed out to the gun club on Friday morning to just have a few hours to clear my head. Nope, there are no pictures showing my groupings with the Colt or S&W and to tell you the truth my shooting was and is really mediocre. But you know, some days it's just really nice to get away from the world and think of nothing but poking holes in paper.....

    Now if only we could all afford to poke not just a few dozen or a few hundred holes in paper every week, but THOUSANDS upon THOUSANDS of holes in paper every week! That's how much I wish I could shoot at least. It is a nice escape. It seems simple to some but, the subtle mechanical and physical aspects of manipulating a mechanical object to achieve an intended purpose is always satisfying to me, whether it be racing sports cars, messing with electronics, or firearms.

    Yeah the prices are not what they used to be.I am investing in another Dillon press so I can start reloading again.

    Guess i really should try to shoot more, but thought I was showing great restraint in not blowing through the 1K rounds I bought at Academy when they had that big sale a few weeks back :o

    Range therapy for me has been the cure for my empty next syndrome. Been going more often since my daughter went off to college, keeps my head clear, focused and aim sharp. I'd say I go out twice or three times a month.
