    This was a thread started in another forum that caught on and was very interesting. Post when you went shooting, what you fired, etc. Pictures if you have them. :) I'll start with my trip today.

    My wife and I went up to Point Blank Range in Mooresville today. We fired 400 Blazers out of my S & W 22C.

    No one else shooting?? Well I went to PBR today in Mooresville.

    I fired 300 of Blazers out of my M & P 22C. I also fired 2 magazines of Speer Gold Dot LE 124 grain HP's out of my EDC Shield 9mm to make sure it was functioning ok.

    Wanted to go shoot today but had to finish the last of 3 podcasts going to the properties concerning budget re-alignments. How 'effing exciting does that sound??

    Does a vicious Nerf gun battle with my 6 year old count? My wife is heading to the range for 3-4 hours tomorrow morning. I will have to live vicariously through y'all until next weekend.

    Oh yes. My first visit to the range with this little guy. A quick 200 rounds of 9mm to complete sight in and test mags. All without shouldering it, I promise.

    Went yesterday. Not a whole lot of rounds downrange, but it was a good time.

    IIRC, it was:
    14 rounds from recently acquired G21 (2nd time out)
    83 rounds of 9mm through a borrowed Sub2K
    ~60 rounds of 22LR for the July Benchrest challenge (50 rounds total for two targets, plus some warm-up/practice shots)

    Nope. Cleared some trees so I can build a little bridge over a small creek. Saw a deer and wanted to shoot, but didn't think it was a good idea with my 9mm CZ.

    I know I'll get made fun of for this, but it has been too dang hot to shoot. I spend all day at work sweating my clothes wet, the last thing I want to do is sweat some more just for the fun of it. I know I'm a pansy, but I hate shooting during the summer.

    Because someone won't shut up about me shooting my PPQ, I decided to take it out between cloud bursts and run a couple of mags of plane Jane federal 115gr fmj through it. @JustKeepSwimming :p

    I annihilated the spit out of the dirt mound. Fvck you dirt! You're old!

    Sighted in my primary CZ455 22LR out to 300 yards. Not enough scope travel even with 25MOA rail. Have to use the dots for the last 50 yards or so.

    I went to Triangle Shooting Academy with my brother in law who had never shot a handgun before.

    I think he is hooked

    Little late but shot Saturday at Denver Defense with my son and friend. Tried to shoot the CZ455 American but the bipod and chair height never worked.
    Shot a lot of 9mm out of three guns. Shot a brand new M&P Shield my son bought for a final price of $245.00 dollars after rebate. Nice feel, very good carry size but that trigger is just impossible to get used to. Point in the gut and squeeze is all you need I guess.

    Ran 70rnds across the chrono, confirming the old production load and exploring for a new one from new castings.
    Old is too close to PF for comfort today, powder lot or temp I don't know/care 0.1gr will fix it. New need more work, one barely made PF none really impressed for accuracy.
    Ended with 50rnds or so of position exit and entry practice.
    Range was vacant otherwise love the heat.

    Thanks for starting the thread over here! What do you think of the new targeting system? I haven't asked, but can they program scenarios yet?

    Went out today and put 50 rounds through my Eagle 15. And I co-witnessed my red dot with the irons. No, it didn't take 50 rounds to do it! I remounted it using a torque screwdriver, so it was a bit off.

    Did a box of 115 grn Remington 9mm ball ammo through my EDC. Not my best shooting. Nuff said!

    They announced about 2 weeks ago the system was up and ready for scenarios but I haven't used it yet. I won't be going until next week and I'll ask then.

    Took some friends from work to Woody's. It was the first time handling a gun for one of them. We shot Glock 19s, an AK, an AR, an S40, an SKS, and Shield 9.

    Everyone had a blast and I think I created a convert. The newbie hit steel from about 25 yards with his first shot ever (using a Glock 19). He had about a 50% hit rate after that which is still damn impressive for someone's first few magazines.

    I have to whole heartedly agree, that's more exciting. The bad thing is that I make them before hand and then have to sit there and listen/watch as they play "live".... I only have to do them twice a year so I guess I'll live....

    At Frontline Defense, 9:30 had the rifle side all to myself, zeroed my vortex scope on my M&P 15,
    then hit steel on the 300yd. Another member arrived to use pistol side.

    Nice breeze until Noon, then it got a bit humid and black clouds moving in when I left.

    New building looks great.

    Frontline Defense, it's worth the trip, members only M-F.

    Took 3 nephews to the range today and spent some QT with their late uncle's pistols (my BIL). Afterward we all attended a memorial in his honor.
