Aside from my guns, I'm a plain kind of guy. Simplicity is often best in my world.


Hell, I wanted to go today, still had to finish up some work on my mom's car for her, now it's just too late - only get 1.5 hours trigger time, not enough.

Always tomorrow though.

I called in sick for work tomorrow. Do you think my boss will suspect anything. Maybe I should have pulled out of the parking lot before calling. Oh well I'll be at the range in the AM.

just explain, if he asked, you are already sick before leaving and just want to stay to finish the days job.

Priceless!!

If he's a shooter, he'll understand. High's near 70 - maybe just over, winds only at 15 or so, mostly sunny..., that's a perfect range day if I ever heard of one.

Been there, done that.

Only downside is walking them muddy lanes to get your stand/target before you leave, but it's almost a guaranteed way to have the range to yourself, aside from crazy al, myself, and a few other members.

A few trips ago wound up like that for me and crazy al, got down there about mid-day, range wasn't too bad, maybe 3 - 5 people at most. Around 14:45 it started raining, kinda light at first, everyone else bugged out, me and al kept shooting and the rain wound up stopping right about 16:30, got another half hour in with relatively dry conditions and called it a day.


I'm just annoyed it didn't snow this winter (so far..., odder things have happened), I was really looking forward to shooting with snow on the ground.

The place gets so crowded on Saturday's. But the good news is, the weather for tomorrow is looking better.

Me to That crisp clean air that comes with snowfall would make for a really nice trip. Not to mention that echo you get when it's quiet and snowy.

Today was swamped, must've been military day at the Grove.

Didn't have to wait for a table, but good lord it stayed busy till I packed up at 16:30, was quite surprised at how many vehicles were in the parking lot when I showed up, and when I left.

The word is out on the grove, seems even during the weekdays it's getting more and more crowded.

As long as it's dummy rounds, I may be able to come up with something, somewhere.


It'll be a little while before I go back down to the grove, cheap CCI primers and my AR aren't getting along right now, so I probably won't be back down till I get a new brand of primer.


Although I may go down just to pick some brass, even if I don't use it, I can find a use for it, need some .45acp brass to stock up on.
