    It was so fun!! i didnt expect to have as much fun as i did. I started off with a glock 19. overall it felt like a good gun, although hand fittment could have been better. Next was the Sig P229 9mm. I loved this gun my shots with this gun were group together nicely. Felt good in my hands. And for the last, i shot a Glock 23. I really liked the Glock 23...im gonna go again and will try the HK USP, the Mark 23, and the Sig P226.
    I also made chat withe the guy who works there and he told me that they dont usually let new people come alone. The reason for that is because 2 people came to the range to sommit suicide :ugh: how fucked up would that have been for the people who worked there and the people who were shooting there at the time...

    People who had their own guns still came to the range to kill themselves?

    Thank you for your groundless opinions, Flash. After a major gun control legislation was put into effect in Canada in 1978, the rate of suicide by guns went down, but the rate of suicide by other methods (mainly jumping off bridges) went up, keeping the overall Canadian suicide rate the same as it was prior to the enactment of the gun control laws. If someone is going to commit suicide, then they are going to commit suicide. Not having access to a gun won't change somebody's mind, they will just find another way to kill themsleves.

    No, I directed that towards Footrat, he said that some people come to the range to kill themselves, but he also said sometimes with a rented pistol, implying that maybe some people kill themselves with their own gun. I just thought it would be weird of someone had their own gun, but went all the way to the range just to kill themself.
