    Thought I would share. It was so fun:cool:
    heres a list of the weapons i shot:

    glock 17
    glock (.45)
    ruger 10/22
    winchester .38 special
    .38 colt revolver (cant remeber the brand)
    .22 colt revolver
    .22 long rifle pistol by desert eagle (long rifle pistol, OXYMORON)

    After I was through shooting, i never realized how hard it is to actually hit a target 10ft away with a pistol. I have also come to the conclusion that i hate pistols, not because of my aim, but of my sensitive ears. yeah... im a sissy:greddy: , so what:mamoru: . Im taking an intrest in the rifles. Especially that Winchester:x: .

    Which rifles are you speaking about? All my rifles with the exception of the 10/22 are louder than my pistols...

    Very cool. Congrats on the day out at the range. I love those old .38specials, but .357mag is more fun.

    Makes me want to go to the range again. PS, get some hearing protection.

    now about that revolver... i couldnt remeber what brand it was because it was not my gun. So i called my father's friend and he says that it was a ruger. Silly me, I thought it was a colt for some reason.

    Single Action? Was probably a Vaquero or Blackhawk.
