That’s why I prefaced my statement with ‘To me’. I realized lots enjoy punching paper. And Lord knows I have no issue with expensive firearms! (Although Wife wishes I did!)
I use targets to varify handgun accuracy, then metal gongs to keep up proficiency. And yes I used to practice a lot, right off the front porch. (Porch to metal gong - 85 yds.) But basically my handguns are tools to keep me and mine safe, both out and afeild. I use defensive shotguns at home.
Rest easy chilipepper, I have no intentions of visiting your house uninvited at 3am. Sorry you live in a repressive state.I am fortunate to live in a free (for now) state, although Democrats would love to change that! You’d be a damn fool to venture into the woods here without a handgun. Too many bears.
If target shooting is your thing, by choice or necessity, I have no issue with ya’. No offense intended to you or anyone else. With the current ammo situation, the less I shoot the more I still have when the zombie apocalypse begins.
