Range time!!

Range time!!

I went to the gun show today, kinda small but so is the town. Good crowd though, had to squeeze and shuffle down the aisles. Met a lot of the local shooters and got my gun club membership completed! I am an official member of the Booker Americans. I aint never been one to waste time, so, I headed off to the range and put a few hundred down range! Damn that felt good!
My hands are dirty, my guns are dirty and I can't wipe the smile off my face. They have a few action targets and steel plates at the pistol area. The pic is what a 158gr semi wadcutter .38 looks like after a solid hit on a steel plate. The .22 pistol just didn't have enough ooomph to work the dueling tree and the .38 was slamming them around and 1/2 way back. I might tweak the tree a bit tomorrow. :)
