Shooting night?

At the last tuesday dinner, after talking about motorcycling for 1.5 hours, talk turned to guns. most people shot, a few had never been but wanted to. So we're thinking about organizing an ADV shooting night at RangeMaster or RangeUSA.

Bring whatchu got, maybe shoot some other stuff. Any interest?

I am all over that!!! I will be happy to let anyone shoot any of my guns as long as you buy the ammo for what you shoot. Range USA is more "group" friendly. They have a lounge directly behind where the shooting lanes are so it would be easy for anyone who is not currently shooting to sit and chit chat. Also they have a restaurant inside the range.

Love to!

I need to run a few rounds through my .45. I've had the thing for several years and it's never been shot!

That sounds like the place to go.

Josh, do you know if they allow shotguns? We've got a Mossberg 'Persuader' that needs to see some action.

Shotguns are not permitted technically...BUT they teach a defensive Shotgun class so you may want call them and see if there are some exceptions or even certain nights they are allowed and they may let you with stipulations?

If you want to shoot shotguns sometime, there is a really cool skeet and trap range near Jackson TN that is really cheap to go shoot at. It would make a great ride/shooting day!

That'd be cool, lots of D/S bikes going down the road with shotguns strapped to their backs!

That is the definition of Dual Sport right? Motorcycling and Skeet Shooting!

I rode it to dinner Tues evening and it sounded real good...BUT it was wet and raining so I kind of took it easy. But all signs show its my imagination. Great compression and clean oil.

THis weekend I want to take it out and flog it and see if I can duplicate it..If I can't it must be something like blocked fuel line or electrical and I'll just check my connections and forget about it!
