…morning light is magic…

Full Auto Trigger Time

No photos in this post but had to share a great bonding experience with my 24 yr old daughter today.  She had bought me an hour at a local indoor shooting range for my birthday a few months ago.  Didn’t get around to using it until today and we had a blast.  We started out with renting two 9mm semi auto pistols (Glock and Ruger) and went through 2 boxes of ammo.

The fun really began when we then rented a fully automatic M16 with a laser sight.  My first time shooting full auto and it was a blast.  Went through 100 rounds of .223 ammo in no time.  Wasted about 1/2 a box in semi-auto mode and ripped through the rest in automatic.  Shot the first few shots in short bursts to get a feel for what it would do.  The range master then told me to let it rip and found out that it really doesn’t take very long to empty a clip.  Was totally awesome.  My daughter really got into it as well.  The most fun that I’ve had spending around $100 in a long time.

I’d highly recommend a trip to “The Arms Room” in League City:  http://thearmsroomtx.com/

  1. When you shoot your 7D it sounds like a machine gun so this must have come natural. 🙂 Pretty neat gift!

  2. David, just a tad louder than the 7D. I’ve got to save my pennies and go back again. Very cool experience.
