My girlfriend, my best friend and myself went to the gun range lastnight when the pistol club was there - long weekend = only 3 members were at the range.
I went there to ask the club leader some questions about hand guns. he said
'you guys new shooters?'
me:'um, never shot a gun, I dont have my licences'
'so your new shooters?'
me: 'yes' :S
The two younger guys then left and got some targest for us.. i was like 'wtf is happening :s'
I was in shock! I'm pretty sure my gf was to.. i was like she was like . she got to shoot all the guns first! I was impressed, she did very well.
anyways, No idea you could shoot at a rage with out training and stuff.
The club leader guy trains you, does a saftey talk, shows you the guns, shows you how to hold them, how to walk around the range, how to be VERy save with the gun, he watches you for the first ten minutes, then you can shoot away. its very safe, and very fun!
by the end of the night we all got to shoot a glock 19, 9mm, a .357 mag revolver. .22 revolver, .22 semi, SKS - cheap ass fun gun! some 1930's black power gun. and an Ar15 + some others.
I'm hooked! if anyone is interested in coming out send me a msg. its free your first time! after that its 3 bucks to get onto the range, 1 dollare to rent a gun, and 2.50 for a box of 50 shots (rentals are .22's) once you get your gun licences + membership at the range it costs a buck to get on the range and you supply your own ammo, of course (with out a membership and licence you can only shoot with the pistol club Monday nights in abby)
point of the story, there is none. I went to the range to ask about range shooting! i didn't go there to shoot. I'm planning on getting my gun linceses both restricted and non. to apply to some jobs. but for the last week all ive been doign is reading about hand guns.
I'd like to start with a .22 just because ammo is dirt cheap. and move up to 9mm or a .40 but right now I'm not willing to spend all kinds of money to find out I suck at shooting!
any other storys about guns? what ones are good to learn on? pictures of your pistols?!
I'm also looking for some names of companys in vancouver that have a nice selection of handguns.
