Range Day 05/14/2024 @ 5 Star Firearms in Zion Illinois


S&W Model 66-3 .357 Magnum 

Other than the obligatory range sessions needed for me to prep-and-qualify for my CCL renewal I had not been shooting for quite a while; the surprise-events of life kept getting in my way.

Shooting is fun; it is "ME time!" I really need to get back into the groove of shooting no less than once a month. Time at the shooting range is cathartic. It's recreational. It's skill enhancement.

The 5 Star Firearms shooting range has a special called "$10 Tuesdays" and I rarely pass up a chance to save a few $ here and there. I brought my own ammo so the total cost for range time and two targets was only $14.

I burned through 96-rounds (a 6-round revolver loaded 16-times) of American Eagle (AE38K) 130gr FMJ .38 Special (I didn't feel up to using any magnum loads today).

How did I shoot? Actually I surprised myself; I didn't start "spraying" the target until I tried rapid-fire headshots at 50-feet.

All in all it was good fun!
