    Made it to the range yesterday and shot modest amounts of ammo: 50 of 9mm, 50 of 5.56, 50 of 22LR :) Good thing I don't have to pay current outrageous prices yet...

    It's all relative :) I think I am above average compared to what I see around me at the range, but totally suck compared to some people on YouTube...

    The price is going to go up even higher due to the cicada invasion.

    At the range I feel like Clint Eastwood in the Dirty Harry movies. Against guys that shoot competitively or have a lot of training I feel like the guy that closes his eyes and pulls the trigger.

    It blows my mind how bad some guys are at my range. Fucking awful. I hope these guys never take a defensive shot with a lot of people around.

    The opinion reads like it's written "by an AR-15 salesman rather than a constitutional analyst," said Larry Tribe, professor emeritus of constitutional law at Harvard Law School. "The bias fairly drips from the opinion, and the analysis certainly does not follow from the Supreme Court's jurisprudence about the Second Amendment."

    This isn't the first time Judge Benitez has weighed in on controversial gun laws. In 2019, he struck down a state law banning gun magazines that hold more than 10 bullets. "Individual liberty and freedom are not outmoded concepts," Benitez wrote at the time.

    It's very likely that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will ultimately reverse Benitez's ruling, said Kopel, because "no pro-Second Amendment has ever survived in the Ninth Circuit."​

    You couldn't pay me to live in CA. Worst state in the union, followed closely by NY.

    And he says Crystal Meth. Vince Gilligan didn't steal this for the gun buying scene in 'Breaking Bad'. It was in homage.

    spent two days in a firearms training class earlier this week, shot around 1,500 rounds of 9mm and 5.56. First day was hot as hell, second day ended with a downpour. Good times :D

    Where are you getting all this ammo? Had to pass on a skeet shooting afternoon because I couldn’t find shells. Are you have them shipped?

    I've had it since before the shortage days :) Ammo prices are slowly coming down though. 5.56 and 9mm are down to about 60c per round online.

    P.S. just saw Russian made steel 9mm for 40c per round online.

    Never had to use it. Have never even fired it at a gun range before, but good luck to an intruder trying to come into our home because to protect my wife and daughter; I'll pop up a cap in their ass

    I suggest you take it to the range and fire off a few shots, for your families own good
