The sun was out today...and the range, after two months, was open.
Apparently there was more than just a "zoning problem". Turns out that there was a squabble between the three owners that resulted in two of them taking off, and taking the steel targets and the shop's FFL with them. I don't pretend to know the half of it but it resembles one of those bitter divorces that you hear about with recriminations on both sides that make you wonder exactly what the truth is and leave you puzzled as to where your loyalties are supposed to lie. But I'm here to shoot, and I paid for a membership, so that's where my loyalty is going to remain.

However, even with the zero a bit off, I'm pretty confident that I can hit the gun-grabber at any practical distance, long before he is able to lay his mitts on my property. And that's really all that matters, right?
All in all, it was a great day to go out and turn lead and powder into smoke. Happy I was as I went home to cook some burgers on the grill.
