    Great day at Sherburne today

    What a great day at Sherburne today!

    One guy was there with two little ones (I'd guess ~5 years old) teaching them how to shoot. Both of them did very well, in my estimation, and I tipped my hat to him for having the patience to teach the little ones safe marksmanship.

    There were a lot of other families there and everyone was having a great time. I also appreciated the gentleman that came over and asked if it would bother us if he put a few rounds through his .308.

    The clay and rifle ranges were also busy, and I chatted with a few great folks.

    As for me ... the 1911 was ticking like a clock today, and I finally got in a rhythm with my .40 Glock (my only Glock that I've never really gotten the hang of). I also brought my Ruger Single Seven in .32, which is one of the great unspoken heroes of low recoil target shooting.

    This is the sound of freedom, folks. Families out enjoying a day of safe and competitive marksmanship, at a range that anyone can shoot at for the cost of a Wild Louisiana Stamp ($5 per year).

    It was a nice day at Sherburne today, and the pistol and rifle ranges were both busy. The skeet range was empty when I got there and empty when I left.

    One thing that people seem to struggle with in the pistol range is the idea that they should not be handling weapons at all when the range is cold. I pretty regularly have to remind people of this, and even then some people choose to ignore this.

    My rule is that on a cold range, guns either need to be broken open on the bench with magazines out, or in a holster and otherwise untouched. Loading magazines is fine, but the weapons themselves should not be touched until the range goes hot. That includes putting guns in a bag or taking them out.

    Sherburne was a blast today. The weather was just a shade on the cool side, but that seemed to keep the bugs at bay. A few couples were there and seemed to be having a great time. And the guy that came in with what looked like a Glock with an RMR ... he was really driving those tacks.

    I ran my 1911, my 10mm 1911, and my 22/45. Groups were nice and tight and the guns were running like a clock. Used up all of my .45 ammo so I'll need to do another bulk order soon.
