Yesterday was our 24th year wedding anniversary and we celebrated most of day at the gun range. We spent approximately five hours shooting roughly 500 rounds of ammo down range with various handguns and rifles.
Below are a few of the pictures along with a couple of videos. It was a beautiful summer cool day with fair afternoon winds. Approximately 75 degree temperature most of the time we were there.
My wife was the only woman at the range shooting that afternoon and she impressed the hell out of all the guys that were paying attention. She didn’t let me down in any way of course. Several of the guys confronted her with compliments afterwards. She made me very proud to say the least with her shooting ability.
The gun range was also having a fundraiser at the time where anyone who was willing to donate a $100.00 got to shoot two different types of rifles of their choice. Either a few semi automatic and/or fully automatic AR style rifles and/or a Barrett Model 82A1 50 BMG. We didn’t participate in that, however if was definitely fun watching several others shoot those type of rifles.
We started off at the handgun range shooting steel targets first with the Ruger SR9 along with several other handguns of ours:
Then we finished up at the long range rifle range shooting both my Savage WIN .308 & Marlin 30-30;

Me plinking steel targets @400 & 500 yards with my Savage WIN .308;

Afterwards, we hit the bar for some food and drinks. WIfe got a little sunburnt. Despite that, all in all, it was a great day! We had fun!
