    I'm going to the range tomorrow morning. Which range should I go to? Lone Star or A Place to Shoot? Eenie, meanie, miney, moe.

    I want to try out A Place to Shoot. But, I've never been there and feel comfortable at Lone Star. I've already been there twice. Has anyone been to A Place to Shoot?

    If anyone wants to meet me at a particular range, I'll go with that one.

    Nope, not yet. $500 is going to take a while to save.

    Someone did come into the store today trying to sell a Springfield. But, he didn't like the price my brother offered. Then, after he left, my brother tells me that my gun just walked out the door!

    A place to shoot isn’t bad. Get there early, cause it’ll be hot.

    We had a small meet there last summer. Ate at B&B smokehouse beforehand.

    Bummer. I've paid more than the going price for a few guns. They were worth it to me. I'm probably going to Dietz tomorrow. Going to bring things you're probably not interested in....yet.

    You were all worried about the recoil in the .45 in a 1911, and you handled it with aplomb. I don't like to torture myself. Lots of .22 lr's. Forgive me, but I get the idea that you haven't shot a lot of rifles. I can help with that. You need to expand your horizons. Hitting a tiny target a long distance away is very satisfying. Hitting a reasonable sized target with with open sights is very similar.

    APTS is a solid range. Lots of ROs and they seem helpful.

    I go there to shoot steel with the AASA crew on 2d and 4th Saturday’s. They will be at Lone Star tomorrow (3D & 5th Saturday’s).
