    Welcome aboard..my advice is to rationally examine your goals in owning a firearm and get the best training you can. Safety and responsibility are the keys to enjoying this fascinating world.

    thanks, that's the same advice a friend gave me when he took me to the firing range.

    yeah, a colleague who's a member took us there yesterday, we had a blast. we were there at@1500 and all the red lights on the rifle range came on, it was time for us to leave. time flew so quick when you're having a good time!

    thanks for the welcome.

    Well combine the shortest day of the year (today the 21st) and the weather and the range lights are photo sensitive. The .22LR indoor range is open until 10PM I just plan it that way. Start at one of the open door ranges and end up in the 50ft.
