Why so few range reports?

Post by fortyshooter » Thu Sep 22, 2022 4:54 pm

Seems to be the same small group of folks that post up range fun with their Henrys or other firearms.

Get out and have some gun fun when you can with the Fall weather coming up and post up a report! Lots of Henry's collecting dust somewhere!
I'm heading out tomorrow with high temp around 70 which is great shootin' weather!

Guilty as anyone, here. Just that most of my shooting over the summer has been airguns and I know that's of limited interest for most folks on the forum. Been meaning to get out and burn some powder, too, but we've been so busy with other summer activities.

Gimpy.... Hard to take the heat. Be shooting again soon. Cooler weather coming. I have several things I want to test.

In the shop today working on a holster to match the 22 ammo pouch I made earlier.

I might start carrying an air rifle along with the powder shooters as those have been collecting dust.

Nice push Forty! I sure hope to get out and shoot in the near future. This thread is an inspiration to do just that! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

I primarily shoot in the desert and it's been too dang hot out there. The mountain range can be crowded or closed due to fire restrictions here.
Don't really care for indoor ranges, so, I've kinda limited myself. Fall temps coming soon and I'll be hitting the desert. I'm just not lucky enough to shoot from the back porch.

You're good Tom I see you get out when you can. This is mostly for a lot of members we never hear about but seem to read the posts.
I'm trying to get my son out this weekend since his wife is out of town for 4 days and he will be home with the two daughters 11 and 13.
The youngest likes to shoot my 22 Victory.

Time and money. I am in the middle of my first serious edit of book 1 of 5. So, my days are heads down working. My kids are in college, my daughter and her husband just bought a house so a large amount of my time has gone there. I did fix up my range and post one report. I finished loading my worked-up 38 spl loads. We will see how those turn out, and my 45c also.

Thanks forty. It's tough out here in Ca sometimes. But, when it's not too hot, the desert is really the spot for me. I just love it there.
