    Thanks for the update. My dad, brother, and I are planning to come to the range this coming Saturday. Will the three of us be able to share a lane given the Phase-2 guidelines?

    Yes. As long as you arrive as a group, your group can share a shooting lane. We just ask that you don't wander around and be sure to observe social distancing guidelines from others not in your group.

    I made it out to Honey Island Saturday. It was quite crowded, but the range officers did a good job of keeping things moving and we didn't really have to wait long at all to get a lane. Kudos to the guys running the range. Nice fun and safe environment. Well worth the drive from Metry.

    Sundays have been our busiest day of the weekends thus far since we've reopened. The first Sunday was honestly a cluster since we didn't know what to expect and we were overwhelmed with a huge crowd.

    We're so thankful to all of our customers who've come back to shoot with us. Everyone I've talked to has said they're happy we've finally reopened. Also seeing a HUGE amount of new gun owners with new "toys". That's always a good thing and sometimes a bad thing since some of those noobs don't know the first thing about guns and that's when the Safety part of "Range Safety Officer" kicks in and we really earn our pay. (We're an all volunteer organization, in case you didn't know. So the joke's on us. Hahaha!)

    Again I want to give a huge "thank you" to you and all of the shooters who've come back out since we reopened. We're extremely thankful.

    I understand that y'all are volunteers, and we are thankful for the time y'all donate to us shooters. Is there a way we can donate to the cause?
