      What's a good day at the range?

      A lot of variables so I'll try to pare it down,

      Pistol, 10-15 yards, open sight or optic aid, what's you target look like on a good day?



      With the .22 87T and dot scope, If all are 8 or more its a good day.

      With the PCR or 84F, a 4" paper plate full of holes is mighty fine.

      a good day is groups of 2-3" of POA @21 -30 feet a great day is making ragged holes with each 5 round group

      my goal is to be able to make a ragged hole with any gun given to me== great technique

      after shooting about 75,000 round since we started shooting, I am very close to my goal most of the time. My wife has her moments too. Love to see her smile when she makes a ragged hole!!!

      no matter what--the ultimate goal is having fun and shooting safely

      Because of where we live, just getting to a place where we can shoot is a major undertaking.
      Thus, any day at any useful range is a good day at the range.

      Depends on if I am practicing individual aimed shots

      or double tap/rapid fire drills.

      But since it means shooting with this lady, a good day at the range is any day at the range.

      Any and all days at the range are winners for me.
      I'm actually heading out to my club tomorrow afternoon with a couple of the other guys. NOW how can that be anything but a winner!

      Just about any time I get out to the range is a good day.

      Getting my Great Nephew to stop yanking the trigger & seeing his 'patterns' become 'groups'=a great day.

      I use a photo copy target. I replace it after every mag. The center is actually white, with the outside bullseye in black.

      If all shots stay in the white section/center area of the bullseye target, then I am satisfied.

      Never made it to the range today!! Unfortunately I had an eye doctor appointment and he put in the drops that caused my eyes to dilate. The light was killing me most of the day. Going to get there this weekend.

      This is the target with my "PRECIOUS" Glock G17 gen 4. First ten shots at 10 yards then I got a bit sloppy

      I agree with Steve any day I could make it to the range and all my guns come home working is a good day at the range.

      17 rounds at 7 yards:

      Come on, your cheating! With that gun, a monkey better be able to shoot a group like that! Lol. (You know it's the gun don't you?)

      I here ya! I belong to a semi-local conservation club, and it seems that this time of the year it's packed!

      Even a bad day at the range beats a good day at work.
