Range day today

December 28, 2014

Went to the range with a family that has not shot before. I took them through different firearms to shoot .

We start out with the basics of fire and safety. Then we progressed to how to properly hold of firearm including a pistol and rifle.

After the basics we put them all on a 22 pistol and a 22 rifle . This was Duninor to get them to assume the proper should position and then they fired rounds at different middle targets .

After this indoctrination we progressed to shooting pistols, a rifle and shot gun. The purpose of this activity was just to make them familiar with the different techniques and holding the different firearms .

They all had a fantastic time and are going to come back in the future for more in-depth training .

If you want to learn how to shoot or experience different firearms give us a call or go one of our websites at .

Reservations are highly recommended . We are private training facility . We could make any trading according to a person’s budget .

We hope to see you soon .

Ways to Navigate with out a Compass

December 27, 2014

5 WAYS TO NAVIGATE WITHOUT A COMPASS 1) Sun Hold an analog watch flat, with the hour hand pointing to the sun. South is halfway between the hour hand and 12. 2) Shadows Stand a 3-foot stick vertically in the ground and mark the tip of its shadow with a rock. Wait at least 15 minutes, then mark the shadow again. The line connecting the two roughly coincides with the east-west line. 3) Stars Find the Big Dipper. Follow an imaginary line drawn through the two stars at the end of the cup and extending into the sky to a medium-bright star–this is Polaris, the North Star. 4) Moon Watch the sky. If the crescent moon rises before sunset, its illuminated side will face west. If it rises after midnight, the brighter side faces east. 5) Plants In Eastern and Midwestern prairies, find the bright-yellow bloom of a compass plant (Silphium laciniatum, right). In sunny spots, its leaves generally align themselves along the north-south line.
