    So wifey and I are in the house.Lots of phone, Skype and Zoom. We are elderly.

    I really, I mean really want to go to my club. (It is open.) Really want to shoot my .38 Super.

    Likely I would be one of 2 or 3 people on the forty acres.

    The only thing I would touch that wasn't under my control is the range sign in book. And the wooden table.

    I dunno. It seems ok.

    Your a lot safer there than walking around a Walmart. I’d go for it just wash your hands and keep your distance

    From a health prospective, realizing that we have no clue of your health history. Being out in the open, on a sunny day, the UV light would likely kill the little buggers.

    If you are worried about the book wear gloves or use sanitizer.

    This is an all outdoor shooting range? Your "human contact" is touching a book? If so non-issue, if you can't go now, you should not have gone before.

    I think you’re good to go. Just keep your distance and sanitize often,

    Take some hand sanitizer, be careful what you touch and sanitize accordingly, and keep distance from others, and you’ll be fine. I say this as someone who is taking this very seriously and who a good chunk of GT believes is falling for a Democrat hoax.

    Bring a jug of water, some soap, paper towels. (Better at removing lead then hand sanitizer) wash hands well before touching face. Lead absorption could be harmful. (IMO of greater risk from your info)

    Pretty sure the drive to the range will be the most dangerous thing you do that day.

    I transported a Covid patient in my medic unit a few hours ago. Go. Don't touch other people or your face.

    I have to agree with RenoF250. There’s risk in everything. Take the proper precautions; hand sanitizer, keeping a good distance between yourself and others, etc.

    Wear disposable gloves to sign in, discard gloves, use sanitizer.

    If you sign out, repeat the process.

    Best of luck for fair weather and fine shooting.

    Sounds very risky to me. You know how powerful those .38 Supers are???

    If my rifle club's outdoor range was not closed, I would probably be there now shooting instead of typing this.

    I would wear gloves if practical, or if not, use hand sanitizer or wash your hands well after touching any surfaces, avoid touching your face after touching surfaces until you do so, and stay 6 feet away from other shooters which should still allow effective communication,

    Wear one of these and no worries at all. May be a little hard to sign the logbook though.

    Get a 10 mm.

    No life form, including viruses and bacteria, can survive even the muzzle blast of a 10 mm.

    (keep social distance, wash hands and surfaces, and don't touch face, and you'll be fine outside on a sunny day.)

    Happy Shooting-my local range is closed so...pop some for me too please. :)

    I have it on good authority that the loud report 0f 357 SIG scares coronaviruses away.
