Is the Ammo Can Half Full, or Half Empty?

What was left after an afternoon at the range, it's been too long.

The ammo can is one half as big as it should be so it's only 1/4 full.

If you're collecting rounds, it's half full. If you're preparing for a trip to the range, then half-empty it is. Either way, it's time to stock up.

Nothing like a little gun therapy. I spent the afternoon shopping for an AR. Leaning towards a .223 version, but found a promising 6.8 that has caught my eye.

Just stock up before it is all gone. It always disappears faster than you want it to. Hope you had fun at the range today. Looking forward to warmer & drier weather here before we can go plinking at the range.

Good for you!

Good to see you got out to the range. It's been longer for me and I envy you.

Looks like you had a great time at the range. You can never have too much ammo. I am still waiting for the downpour to subside. They are saying rain steady until Friday. Hope you have a great Easter.

Not supposed to be any left--burn it all and go get more.

Keep practicing and stay sharp, because you never know when it's coming.

Hope you had a great time. If we ever dry out down here, I could use an afternoon like that myself.

Yeah! Good for you! I spent some time today at the range on a reloading experiment and to shoot some old Glaser Safety Slugs. Went with 4.5 grain TiteGroup on .45ACP and dialed it back to 4.1 for range ammo. Cycles the Colt fine! I did not get to chronograph speed, range got busy!

Thankfully I was able to do so before previous students asked for some personal time on the range.

Got to dial in a Walther PS-55 on the .22LR M-4 too!

Somebody's got a lot of brass to reload...

Got the bench set up in the new, temporary range?

Depends on the way you look at it.

Umm, welllll.. one looks kind'a half full, and the other looks kind'a malnourished and anorectic (sp?), so the answer more than likely lies between the two: one needs to feed the other. (or: 'iron sharpens iron')

I'm dying to get back to the range. . . I belong to two gun clubs. One has an indoor range but back in February, the roof caved in due to too much snow and we're still waiting for it to reopen. The weather has not been suitable for outdoor shooting. I'm also looking forward to sporting clays this summer. Just took a lesson in that in late fall this past year. I've always been a handgun person so learning how to handle a shotgun was a bit of a challenge.

Well, it looks like someone has spent a lot of time pulling the trigger on Semi-auto pistols, and not so much on Revolvers. But if the Zeds came after you RIGHT NOW, and you reached for your Semi...... Yep, I'd say it's time to head into town and get some Semi Ammo to tide you over until you make up some reloads. In the meantime, I'm sure that you have room for a spare snubbie or extra speedloaders on your person. Never can tell when those Raptors may come up your street....

Depends when its time to shoot some more! If that is some time soon then half empty and needs filling quick but if its a while off then way too much left over!
