    I’ve been a little stressed out recently, so I thought I would pick some of the most random guns in my safe that I don’t normally shoot just to be totally immersed in the differences and the mechanics of shooting. Good therapy as a break from what’s going on in the world.

    Anyone else with range therapy today?

    Have a range in the back yard. Been spending a good bit of time there.

    Not today, but Sunday I went to an 8 hr. Red dot workshop held by Dave Spaulding/ Handgun Combatives.

    Great class, great background info on red dots, excellent drills. I was tuckered out at the end of the day but had a great time.

    Actually yes. This was 50 rounds at 10 yards with my 320 compact in 357sig.

    Great PSA.

    Trigger time is very relaxing. I'll likely take out revolvers and .22s. Thank you for sharing. :fred:

    I didn't think about that - yesterday, the hour I was out, I didn't think about anything but sight alignment and getting a good trigger pull and hitting the targets and not making any newb mistakes.

    It was nice!!!

    Coincidentally I had an impromptu range session during my lunch. Still had the price tag on it when I opened the box at the range :/

    7 yards:

    each one opened up a bit more. ;)

    My son and I went to the range a week ago. We took 9 rifles/pistols as it had been a while since the range was open. The nice thing is the RO let us shoot for as long as we wanted for $10 each since it wasn't that busy. It took a lot of stress off of us and gave us both some needed range time to stay proficient. Shooting with my son. Doesn't get any better than that (unless my daughter comes along too).

    Very nice, and I feel that.

    Last month I finally was able to get to the range and it was the first time I'd basically been out of the house since February, with two kids under 4. I was starting to get a bit stir crazy.

    I also spoke to an adult that day, other than my wife, the first time in about that long.

    Since the weather has been nice my weekly range trip is my break from the world, just me and some time to focus on mechanical devices (and my own mechanics), it's extremely stress relieving, it was before this year and doubly so now.

    Range day was Monday, my wife and I usually head out to the range on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month. This month its going to be the 1st, 3rd, and 5th.

    Borrowed a friends Poly 80 G26 build, it has a Holosun Red Dot and I have been playing around with it a bit. I also borrowed his 48, he purchased a Poly 80 43 frame and put the 48 slide on it. He has an aftermarket trigger (sorry don't know which one) and that combination really performed well in my hands. I might have to look into that some more.

    I am really becoming a fan of the Poly 80 frames.

    5619B7E5-31FC-402B-8685-92AFD363D881.jpeg I went to the club today and got some therapy. I put about 140 rounds through my CZ 455V trying out some different ammo. I shot 30 rounds with my go to AR at 100 yds with XM193.
    I shot the plate rack with both my S&W Victory and P365xl. I forgot my timer. I also shot the Victory for the June Rimfire Golf challenge. 32A705C8-A98A-4F46-A3EF-1324E99F7532.jpeg

    It really was! And very inexpensive considering the class size was only 10 students. Lots of individual attention. I highly recommend it.

    I went Saturday for the first time since last summer. When ever I take a huge break I forget how much I enjoy tossing lead down range.
