In 1990 I bought a Glock 19. It was at the time a really hot gun to own. It became a safe queen, I probably have less than 200 rounds thru it. For whatever reason I just never caught on with the idea or interest to get into the purchase/practice/proficiency cycle of gun ownership. Lately I seem to have caught the bug to develop my abilities and am planning to enter the cycle of gun ownership. I'll be taking the NRA Basic Pistol course later this spring, I have lined up a deal on a 98% condition Ruger Single Six .22 lr or Mag(2 cylinders) for an economic practice weapon, and am toying with the idea of joining the SASS for sheets and giggles. Currently looking at ranges in my area to join so I have a place where I can safely go practice. The one closest to me, the pistol range seems to be an after thought. What should I expect to find/see at a range? Looked at a few youtube videos, my local range is lacking. See pics. The building is to my rear, pond to my left, table/structure in front and the target area. I think the club is under $50 a year to join, have not made contact with the membership powers that be yet. I'm thinking a spent brass can would be there, I saw alot of casings on the ground. Range rules posted? Nothing. Target area? The T has steel hanging there, the ground level targets are fixed to the spare tires, the pallets are there to attach targets to vs a proper fixture. I might have other options further away, this one is real close to home. I would have no problem donating my time and effort to renovate the range, what should I see at a nice range?
