Not so unusual. Most folks at the indoor range I frequent only use the 25 foot targets. Not many use the 25 yd targets. Too many misses. lol.

Looks like yard makers to me also. I prefer 25 yards also, but most of the self defense and combat leagues in the area use 5-7-10 yards also. Lawyers think that that someone 75 feet away isn't much of a threat, unless they're shooting at you...

I'm a wheelgun and bolt action type of guy although I've had plenty of semi-autos long and short. Was up to about 110 items in the collection at one time... now more like 10.
The 44 Automag was a gas to load for and shoot.
Anyway a surprise visit gets you either the .41 Mag, 44 Spl or 12Ga 0000.
Items are distributed strategically all around the house (no kids and the dog don't care).
Several nice rifles in the big box too.
I used to cast and hand load everything, including the 6.5mm-08 wildcat until it became legit.
I can't tell you how much money Midway and Brownell's got from me over the years when I had it coming in.
Fortunately, the neighbors all know that pain is just a door knob away.
Otherwise they call me 'Santa'. Everyone wants to be nice to Santa.

GA is pretty gun friendly. Kennesaw requires home weapon ownership and many of the illicit weapons in the NE come from here.

Didn't know what if anything had happened to you Rudy. Good to know you're still kicking.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Thanks guys. It's good to be back. I had my password expire but that's no excuse. I've been busy with life's issues and finally got to the point where I had most things as distractions settled down some.
Of course, no more riding for me but I still play with my toys and areas of interest. Living near downtown in a large, liberal city, I play the chess game of life and computer security and privacy quite a bit.
I think about you guys a lot and was curious what the remains of the Saunders board looked like now a days.
I still remember being at Shooters house in the dining room. Good times then.
AZ came by for a few days visit a couple of years ago ad we had a great visit as well.
I'm happy to see so many of the 'good guys' are still here.

Anyone recommend a discount online gun seller that you have dealt with. Looking to purchase a Taurus G2C. Online sellers asking $200 or less. Local dealers here asking $50 more than online. Thanks!

I have never bought online but you do have to run it through a licensed dealer and they charge varying amounts to do the paperwork so you have to consider that.

I have never purchased online so I didn't know that. Oh well! All my guns were inherited, traded or purchased at a show.
