Range Day

The day started early, at work by 0600 to make sure everyone was lined out and to get some paperwork done. Left work at 1000 and stopped off at Military Gun Supply on the way home to pick up some Fiocchi 9mm to make up for an empty spot on an ammo shelf. Get home, changed and decide it's a great day to head out to the range (yep, more empty spots on ammo shelves).

The 4H kids were still shooting when I got there, so just hung out and got caught up with all the goings on in the land of 4H shooting. Several of the kids were still there from when my #3 daughter was shooting with them. They had completed their postal match relays and were just shooting for fun.

After they were finished, I pretty much had the range to myself. It has been a long time since I have had the opportunity to just take my time and shoot on my own, not helping anyone or having to watch out for others range safety. Just relax and have a good time. It was also the first time I had a chance to try and see how accurate the Erma Werke EM1 I bought for my grandson is. Let us just say that it is a good little plinker that can hold a minute of soda can out to 50 yards.

Left the range after 1700, just in time to catch the end of the Stars post game show and find out that they won (yeah). All in all a very good Saturday.

I'm going to have either make another visit to MGS or place an order with Ammunition To Go. I just hate empty spaces on my ammo shelves.

Ammunition to go does have certain hard to find Winchester Ranger variants, and their prices are fair, but how about the ever-dreaded shipping...

The shipping is not too bad. My last order was a case and a half of 5.56, shipping UPS ground was $12.40.

Fair. Thank you, JR
