    Now that some of the ranges have opened up for training I am going to get more serious and attempt to use my time more efficiently. I love the time at the range and have started to go more often. Whiskeyshooter posted a drill for shooting so I decided to start getting some more drills into the mix.
    *I also may look into getting some advanced training and possibly get involved with one of the groups for target shooting. I do have a great LGS "The Bullet Ranch" in Pataskala Ohio and they have a good group of safe and reliable shooters. I love the indoor range but also want to get to some of the outdoor venues if possible. Keeping the fun factor in the mix too.
    *Practice with my centerfires and rimfires I hope will become more productive. Anyone have any target and drill recommendations?
    Thanks in advance from a old new shooter. Be safe and be healthy.

    Oh man! That's pretty funny! The range that I belong to won't allow any targets that even remotely [email protected]@K like anything human, but I will ask to see if a "sub-human" target like that would be allowed. But, I can sure use it on my range out back.

    Hope you don't mind if I print yours out?

    Each August when our gun club holds "Family Range Day" I work the .22 pistol range. I changed the shooting from the dull "bullseye paper targets" to reactionary targets that the kids 10 years old and above like to shoot at. Here's one that I use, and I staple a small zip lock bag of green liquid dish soap behind the target and into the back board behind center mass. When the kid hits the target just right, the green liquid oozes out and down the back board. Get a surprised reaction from the shooter:



    No complaints about that "zombie target", at least so far.
