Shooting is the act or process of discharging a projectile from a ranged weapon (such as a gun, bow, crossbow, slingshot, or blowpipe). Even the acts of launching flame, artillery, darts, harpoons, grenades, rockets, and guided missiles can be considered acts of shooting. When using a firearm, the act of shooting is often called firing as it involves initiating a combustion (deflagration) of chemical propellants.
Shooting can take place in a shooting range or in the field, in shooting sports, hunting, or in combat. The person involved in the shooting activity is called a shooter. A skilled, accurate shooter is a marksman or sharpshooter, and a person's level of shooting proficiency is referred to as their marksmanship.
So I've been doing occasional range trips with some old friends lately, and they kinda seem to mostly be stuck in the rut of just magdumping into the trash. Ammo is still kinda expensive compared to what it used to be, so I'm looking for other ideas to do.

The location will be near deer valley airport.
If WIFI is available, we will set up a Zoom meeting...
