yup.. I know sounds odd doesnt it...
but youve had a rough week of work, the wifey seems to have been more "talkative" lately, the kids a bit more "energetic" than normal... the weekend arrives and you need to get about 3-4 hours of Quiet Time at the range...

Am I the only one who feels this way??? :)

Not at all. It's nice to go hang out at the range.

My son and I had a fun, very social afternoon at the gun club yesterday though. Everyone we saw was an old friend, which isn't surprising as I've been a member of the same gun club for over 20 years.

We did excuse ourselves from the conversations finally and got around to shooting our handguns. Sure was nice.

I do enjoy getting out there, alone. Just a rifle or two for company. Working on accuracy. Enjoying being outside, not bothered by anything else, just concentrating on shooting. It's real nice.

Got it made. Live alone and my 100m bench is 20 paces
from the house. Nirvana!

This is my situation now too. I do still keep a membership at the range I used to shoot at and go out there now and then, usually to RSO for them. I do enjoy the social outlet sometimes, but I like to shoot unbothered too.

Quiet time at the range, reloading room and casting room.
These places can take your mind off of a lot of things.

My "local" outdoor state range is maybe 70 miles away. I
don't get there much at all, as it's an all day round
trip. The local county sheriff's range is 15 miles away,
but only open to the public on the 2nd Saturday of the
month, and then for maybe 5 hours. I do like to go there.
The local indoor range has a fee, I don't remember how
much, but for the time I spend there it's not too
expensive.And I can sweep up all the brass that I can
carry, if no one else wants it first. Most of it is once
fired, as a lot of people rent a pistol and the regs
require factory only ammunition.
I look forward to shooting so I can clean my rifles and do
all the stuff related to handloading except trimming
brass...

My wife passed about 2 years ago if I didn't have
reloading or some kind of enjoyment it would have been a
lot harder to deal with
