    Actually there was a group that had about 7-8 shotguns, among them were 2 SD guns and one Shockwave. Thankfully they were using shot and not slugs. The Shockwave got put away quickly when they realized they couldn't hit a damn thing with it.

    Back in the 80's I remember someone pulling out an old fridge from a pick up and putting it down range. He then went to every firing point and told everyone when the line goes hot aim at the fridge. This was the hey day of military surplus so everything from ak's to M1'S were on that line plus a smattering of 12 gauge shotguns. When nellie gave the command . something close to 50 rifles and shotguns were trained on that fridge. It just disintegrated. Everyone had a huge smile on there faces. Then Nellie borrowed an M1 and she got her licks in too. Those were some fun days. So many cool people talking guns and shooting. Very common for someone to let you try his gun. Closet thing now is freeport.

    I've always wanted to try hitting clays with a 9mm pistol. I think I could do it eventually.

    It would be like Daniel-san catching a fly with chopsticks - I'd have beginner's luck but never be able to do it again.

    once upon a time at Calverton you could take an old tube tv out to the 50 yd line and shoot the crap outta it. 4ft. grandma RO would help you if you were using an M1 Garand (one of her favorites)....

    Maybe shoot one box of your centerfire. But .22? Hey, go nuts. Ammo will make a comeback. Always does.

    The, your stockpile is a stash, not a stockpile. Buy more ammo and go shooting..........

    Come on now - most of us could shoot at least monthly for years and still have more than enough for the zombie apocalypse.

    ...but if we want to enjoy our time before the world changed and be able to make those headshots during the zombie apocalypse, we need to "waste" ammo at the range occasionally.
