I'll go...guy at the indoor gun range was just telling me about this place last time I was there shooting my .38

Are there any round restrictions? I have an old Mosin-Nagant that shoots 7.62x54 I picked up last year and haven't even shot it yet....none of local ranges will let me shoot it.

I think this place is pretty lax on rules but if not bring it when/if you come look at some parts and we'll fire off a few rounds.

Will do man, I'll be looking to "stimulate" the economy very soon.

I'm trying to make a list of everything I need/want.


I'll definitely bring the M44....Its a shame, I spent hours cleaning the cosmoline out of the old girl and then couldn't even fire it.

I've been told it kicks like a mule, I picked up a cheap butt pad to put on the end of it....hopefully that will help a little.

I'll bring the M44 and my .22. I also have a 12 guage and a .223, the .223 is just to expensive to shoot.

My next purchase it probably going to be a Romanian Ak47 or a Yugo SKS. I've also been admiring a Springfield XD40 at the indoor gun range I shoot at.

Oh yea it kicks hard! Want to see something cool shoot it at dusk and watch the fireball.


.223 is a whole lot cheaper to shoot than 7.62x39. .223 is 179.00 per 700 rnds and 7.62x39 runs 220.00. It's all going up, Everybodys worried about November. I reload alot of mine so when i go to ranges i tend to be a brass hound LoL.

I've seen the muzzle flash...definitely impressive!!

I've got a small stash of 7.62x39 that I bought a number of years ago from a friend getting out of the hobby before the prices really went up, I've been meaning to pick up an AK at the gun show but the money was never there when the shows come around. I probably have around 1500 rounds which is more than I'll probably ever need.

I'm also one worried about November, I want to grab a semi auto AK or SKS before they try to ban them again. The high likely hood of a Democrat winning in NOV is going to force me to buy one now.

If the hildabeast or obama gets in were in trouble of course theres flip flop Mc Cain which is probably the lesser of the two evils.

I'd suggest cruising the gun and pawn shops too along with the gun shows, Ya might stumble on a good deal. I picked up that FR8 for 200$ and they normally sell for around 400$ +.
