Absolutely get it. I am a few hours away from my trap match therapy. I seldom shoot paper targets these days.

I don't much like wearing the eye protection because it breaks the seal on my ear protection and then my ears ring. I probably need to look for something else so I can wear the eyes....

ESS Crossbow Suppressor (to give one example) fits under the earmuffs well. I'm sure there're other shooting glasses like that.

But in all honesty you need it. Look into the surefire sonic defenders.

Awesome! I'm always looking forward to getting some range time. It definitely makes you forget the stressful BS that life sometimes dishes out.

When I was a young lady, High School and College we used to go to the dump in the desert where one could find TV's, Cars etc.
Take the 30-06 and 30-30 plus a gaggle of .22lr's and just go nuts.

Now its stupid paper targets at the local range....sighs.......

Anyone up in No. Cal Central Valley know of BLM land I could go to?

My grandmother always told me that the people who were insecure about themselves were the ones that had to go around to tell everyone else what to do. The only proof they have that of being right is to make every one else do and think as they do.

I took my son to the range today for stress relief. We shot our father/son set of 10/22s. Then we shot my Glock 19. I hate to say that for his first time he out did his dear old dad with the Glock. I wish I could say it was due to my recent shoulder surgery.

I redeemed myself with the old .30-30. He did not like the recoil. This was the first time in over 35 years that someone other than myself has shot that rifle, and I thought it was fitting that it was my son.

He is going to cost me dearly. He said he needs some more stress relief later this week. He allowed me to put 15 rounds through the Glock before he put 85 rounds through it. He wants one of his own now.

Shooting is great stress relief.

Haha! Those Glocks will convert just about anyone! I cut my teeth on a Glock 17 and a few months later was the proud owner of the Gen 4 G19! It's no wonder he loves how it shoots! As for being out-shot...I'm sure it was the shoulder! have a good week!

I run into the same issue. I try to mitigate it by having ear plugs in addition to over ear head phone protection while wearing eye protection.

LOL! Glock Girl in CA is more fierce, prettier and dresses better.....she wins! I was just saying "twins" because the two photos were very similar - I even have a casing flying out of my Glock as well!



This is me looking dumpy, but still hitting my targets:

You're right there with me, BK! Sisters we are! You look pretty cute with your Glock! I mean tough; really tough!

On that note, I do confess to looking extra girly at the range; I want other girls to see that you don't have to be some bad-***** girl to want to/like to shoot. I want to be relatable. A lot of these pics go on my FB, and I'm hoping to make converts, you know! In my pre-gun life I never thought I was quite tough enough to wield a gun in front of a bunch-'o-guys, so maybe that's why I dress like a priss at the range. So the girls will say, "If SHE can do it, I certainly can!"

The exquisite thing about shooting is that its an untouchable activity.

What do I mean by "untouchable"?

People at your job lie. Your friends can omit certain valuable details which affect your personal life greatly, and your family has their own sense of what "truth and justice" mean which can diverge from the ol' Webster's Dictionary definition. I won't mention the truckloads of bull we all get from the TV regarding the state of gun ownership and the world today.

On the firing line, its you and the gun. More to the point, its you and the front sight. Either you hit the bulls eye....or you don't.

There's no personal perception, inter-relational perspectives, or corporate-merging of customer-centric sharing of ideas going on. The gun fires, the round hits the target....or it doesn't-either way, for that two-tenths of a second between the time you focus on the front sight and the boomstick actually goes BANG!!!......the outside world is nonexistent, and so are its problems.

Our enemies in government and society would have the layperson think that we gun owners are violent psychos in waiting. In point of fact, because we shoot frequently we are the most well adjusted folk on the planet today. Perhaps that's why we get so many haters in nearly every quarter of modern society, eh?

Took various implements to the range last week. Wish it was milk jugs or cans though......

I love the smell of cordite, Pyrodex and a warm firearm in the morning......

I know exactly what you mean about the stress. A few hours at the range and I am a new woman. It's as though I've had a nice break from the rest of the world, and a few hundred rounds later, I feel ready to face it all again.

It's all those ENDORPHINS ! Ya just gotta feel good with all those free brain drugs floating around in your system...

Endorphins ("endogenous morphine") are endogenous opioid peptides that function as neurotransmitters.[1] They are produced by the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus in vertebrates during exercise,[2] excitement, pain, consumption of spicy food, love and orgasm,[3][4] and they resemble the opiates in their abilities to produce analgesia and a feeling of well-being.

Well, I'm not saying shooting is better than sex but...

On second thought, maybe I am, depending on who you're sleeping with!
