When you go to the range, do you and your friends “play games” that are target practice disguised as fun? I would love to hear what you do and how it keeps you going to the range!

I read the following at NPR tonight:

The traditional American shooting range is extending its range. In Summerville, S.C., for example, the ATP Gunshop & Range stages community-minded blood drives and Toys for Tots collections. Twice a week there are ladies’ nights, where women can learn to fire pistols and receive free T-shirts.

The Freestate Gun Range in Middle River, Md., has staged competitive, poker-style target games and zombie shoots. The Family Shooting Center in Aurora, Colo., showcases gourmet elk and pheasant bratwursts. The Governors Gun Club under construction in Powder Springs, Ga., will feature a members’ lounge and bar.

What better way to spend a Saturday or Sunday afternoon than enjoying quality time together doing an activity you enjoy?”

Games! Specials! Online coupons! Sign up for teams! Fun for the whole family! Are shooting ranges the new bowling alleys in America? Read more here

  1. Our church lady folks do a crap sale every year for Christmas. This year they had lots of tree ornaments left over…I bought them all and said: “I’ll put these to good use” (five for a dollar). I used them for targets.
