Anyone know why the Sandy Springs Gun Club is still closed almost 2 years after the fire?

    I was on the rifle team in college (I guess that makes me an SEC athlete). One of my team mates who shall remain nameless, despite the fact that the statute of limitations has long since expired, had a penchant for the down range lights during pre-competition warm ups. Those bullseyes were 1/32" in diameter, and he managed to be off by 8 feet or more (we shot prone and the lights were on the ceiling). To my knowledge, he was never caught. I never really saw the point, given that the lights only helped shooting skills.

    I just did my 4th session at SSGR, and they are very friendly and accommodating to my needs.

    I have had a few other members help me on the range when I was struggling to find a target (a dude offered me a few stick-on targets).

    It's a great range.

    I had just bought this Marlin 336 30/30 and found it to be an excellent rifle.

    I went by today to test a rifle and practice with a couple more. Everything worked well except the test, and I had just got it back from the gunsmith. BTW, they have plenty of ammo.

    I also bought a 1949 Winchester Model 94 (pre-1964) in 30/30 from them. It worked great.

    I am going tomorrow to test this new Hornday 35 Remington ammo in my 1974 Marlin 336C:

    You can shoot one downrange if you like (and you get the OK from the range guy).

    It's Lever evolution Tuesday.
