I wish I was close to a range as I love to shoot. I have to drive 25 miles to shoot so I need to preplan. Let's see, I get 18 miles a gallon @ $4.05/gal =$11.22 total cost per round trip.

I have 4 Friday's scheduled off in Oct to bowhunt. My routine is to hunt until 11:00AM in my morning spots then go to the gun range midday to shoot for a few hours then hit my afternoon spot for the balance of the day. The shooting pit is only 4 miles from my core hunting spots. It's funny how the price of a gallon of gas changes one's behavior.

No shooting for me until the doc gives me the release ok. I've set the 1st of OCT as my goal to start shooting both gun & bow. We'll see!
