I finished up some projects at work early on Friday, and since I just happened to have my range bag in the car, I headed up to the Indoor Range for some trigger time. I briefly considered hitting the outdoor range, but that would have involved a trip home to load up more gear. And it was cold outside!
There were a few shooters on the line when I arrived. I was struck by the noise level in the range. I've never paid much attention to it, but after a few visits to Elite Shooting Sports, the lack of sound dampening at this older facility is obvious. It's not something that bothers me though. One might even consider it good conditioning to be shooting with loud guns going off around you.
I don't think it was very much warmer inside the range than out! Despite that, I had a good time putting lead downrange for a half an hour or so. And it's confirmed, the Rx in my shooting glasses is due for updating. Even so, I had few complaints about where the holes were appearing on the targets. After the busy couple of weeks at work, this was a great start to the weekend.
Now, to get this weekend really rolling, I'm sure there's new beer in the fridge I need it try out...
