Tried a new shooting range today.
I usually go to the same indoor range every week here in Las Vegas. American Shooters on Arville and Spring mtn. They are alright, but they do not have an awesome ventilation system. When there is a full range, it gets way to smoky in there for me. Plus the ventilation they do have tends to blow around the targets just enough to make you less accurate. In addition, they have a woman working at the counter for the range that seems to always have a pissy attitude.
That being said I decided to go down to the Discount Firearms range on South Highland drive near all the strip clubs (No, get your mind out of the gutter). I wasn't impressed at all with the people at the sales counter. Not too worried about letting a customer wait around. The shooting range however was very impressive. They have the best ventilation I have ever seen in an indoor range. Barely moves the targets but does not lack circulation or filtration. Plus they have a range master supervising the range, which I like because you can never count on the other patrons to know what they are doing. The range master was a complete opposite as far as attitude. He was an older gentleman, very friendly and helpful. To work the target motor, there is a digital panel you input how many feet you want and press go and it takes care of it.
I got a chance to shoot my reloads in a controlled environment. Suprisingly they seem to be more accurate than the cheap factory stuff. In case anyone wants to know, the Bersa T380 shoots reloads very well. I am using W231 powder with Rainier 95 grain bullets and CCI primers. No misfires or jams. Keep in mind that I am using the Lee Factory Crimp die, made exclusively for finicky auto loaders.
