    If I had to shoot to get my CPL I would take my Hi Point .40, at 25 yards I can put all ten in the X ring. At 7 yards I can put all 10 on the X itself.

    I was surprised & lucky to do a cold shoot like that with a small time window. :)

    I too need some range time. It is a 50 mile one way trip to the nearest decent range. There is one closer But they require a 50 dollar annual membership, and they are only open for rifle or pistol 2 days a week (except a third 3 hour day for rimfire) and on the days that they are open for Centerfire Pistol or rifle that is only if one of the Range masters decides to show up. They are mostly geared toward Skeet they are open 5 days for that.

    That is why people like us need our own range. My range is mostly for plinking. That is slow but sure changing to targets at
    200 yard max. The money isn't a problem but the time to build & maintain a range is where it gets tough.

    I only have room for a 35 foot BB Gun Range. Easy to maintain. Mow the lawn pick up the shot up soda cans when done.

    Years ago I tried shooting plastic bullets in the house ............ Not a good idea ! It was fun but the smell went all through the house. ( see why I'm single ) :)

    IMG_1112.PNG We are making great strides state by state and through the courts.

    Pro gun legislation in congress will be dead for quite some time.

    Stay the course with the states rights movement on this issue. Look where we were just thirty years ago.

    As of Aug this year North Dakota has become a Constitutional carry state.
    Need to be a resident for 6 months and have a state ID or drivers license.

    I like the way Missouri has it set up. You have "constitutional" carry, but having the permit carries with it a ton of perks that make it worth having. Plus if you should ever leave the state as long as you're going into a state with reciprocity, you're covered.

    North Dakota has 2 concealed carry permits 1 is for 18 years and up and the other for 21 and up. the second one gives you more states that has reciprocity but the first one still gives you many states and is a little easier to get.

    Yep, even when my permit runs out I'll renew just for the reciprocity.
