A great range day today. 65 deg, sunny, and the range pretty much to myself. I decided to make it an NFA day.

Three stamps here, and all Form 1's.

My Glock-lower AR9 is working hard to edge out my Colt-lower AR9 as a favorite, and with the can on top, it runs like a quiet sewing machine.

At the 100 yard range, on the plates, it's "Choomp," pause, "CLANG." Thank you, Governor Sununu.

God I need to shoot a suppressed pistol. I’ve only shot a suppressed MPX at Sig last year....

I hit the range late this afternoon. Blew through 100 rounds of 44 mag in the DW revolver and 120 rounds of 7.62x39 through the Arsenal AK.

My Honey Badger has the suppressor inside the hand guard and it can get uncomfortable if I’m mag dumping. How hot does it get with 9mm on the guard?

The 9mm is a pretty low-intensity round compared to a rifle round. I can mag dump pretty hard without really heating the handguards up.

Another gorgeous range day. I hope everyone was out.

Checking out the zero on my 10/22's, both suppressed and "boring."

I need to get something better than the stock trigger in there. Maybe the factory BX-Trigger module.

25 yards, suppressed, AE 45 gr suppressor ammo.

Nothing to write home about, but not bad with off-the-shelf ammo through my Form 1 can. Best of all, no POI shift with the can. I felt myself mashing pretty hard on the trigger a few times. Sure is quiet, tho...

For me, it always seems to be a time and resource thing. Zero chance to go to any local club activities to join. I'm a loaner and mostly shot on public ranges in the woods for 20 years before moving to MA and dealing with the club funk , plus the driving, plus the time.

I joined a club in Maine and went Zero times in the year I had a membership. It's 45 minutes away.

Things should be different next year. Kids old enough to go with me. We will be near FLA for a few months after the Covid thing cools enough.

I already brought his great grandfather's bolt action .22lr rifle down there, and it'll be his first shoot this summer.

Even with prices, I'd there was a range 30 minutes away that I could use, I'd blow a few hundred .22Lr And 50 .38sp or 9mm this weekend. There isn't. At least not that I can afford the time to enjoy.

have enough .223 /5.56 to do more than sight in some glass. Without a good range, little desire.
