About 20 years back, there was an abandoned strip mine of some sort, you could go practice in-- it was perfect: had anywhere from 20 to 50 feet high walls consisting of fairly loose shale as a backstop. Little chance of ricochet back to you or elsewhere. Easy paths down into it, from when they were hauling up the ore. It was about as perfect as you could ask for.<quoted text>
Earlier we were speaking about using Siri.
As I mentioned sometimes I leave things and just for fun...
You missed this!
" I agree on SYG.
I don't favorite either."
S/B 'I don't favor it either'. This is an example of leaving a Siri mistake in!
Yes it is violent. And the NRA rules Congress.
In Florida there are target ranges everywhere.
Indoor and outdoor.
I would think Oklahoma would be gun country like most of the Western states? Is there any open area you can do target shooting?
Those Texans shoot a lot of people.
Alas, the nanny-state morons closed it off, and prohibited the public from going in there. meh. Afraid some moron would drown in the man-made lakes down at the very bottom, I guess.(as if that wouldn't have improved the gene pool some... it would've been a win-win I'd have thought...)
But now, there's no where nearby to go shooting for free. A few paid locations here and there, but without membership, it's prohibitive for regular practice. There's a really good range outside of town, too far to go apart from weekends, though-- takes about an hour to get to (poor roads). And because the land is owned by a rational family?(the gun club only leases it) You are not forced to subsidize the nutter-NRA bullshit...
There's one in the southside of the city, but I've not checked on their prices-- likely as ridiculous as the ones nearby, if not worse.
... meh. Too much regulation makes indoor ranges too expensive-- and about 70% of the regulation has **nothing** to do with shooting itself, but with **air** quality!!! WTF???
... nanny states...(in the voice of Yosemite Sam)
I hates that rabbit...
