Well, I have to say this is "Smashingly Nice Range Darling" (think Mr. Howell). I didn't take the tour to see the tactical ranges but it has a great store front and some nice inside ranges. I liked it so much I paid for a membership. I figure since it's 10 minutes from the house I will definitely use it more than twice a month. It's being touted as the largest indoor range in the country.

Here is the Range I was on. The target is at 30 ft. All digital controls allow you to set the distance you want for the target and it will stop when it gets there. You can set the target to pivot on a timer as well. Pretty sweet.

This was the first time shooting with my new 3S Tactical Gloves.

Nice Shooting. Damn nice looking range that you have there. That is what I need around me.

I like those gloves. How were they to shoot in?

The gloves are very nice. I was worried how it would effect my shooting. This is the first time in 30 years I've ever shot with gloves on. I've looked at many gloves lately tying to find a pair I liked. Most were either too thick and bulky or too thin with no knuckle protection. These fit right in the middle. The knuckles are not wide pieces of hard plastic, more like hard rubbery material and they just cover the knuckles. They don't have a lot of padding but they do add more texture for a better grip, and lastly the trigger finger can be flipped back to give you full tactile trigger control without removing your gloves. The best part is I only paid like $25 bucks for them. They may not be the best choice for a field operator but LEO or Tac team member they fill a great need.

That is awesome. $25 is not a bad deal either.

Thanks ZK

Good shooting!

I like my indoor range, too - especially when the weather isn't cooperating.

Those support posts are gonna get tattooed pretty good I'm thinking :)

Thanks, I can already tell this may be a bad thing for my bank account. I went back today, They have 60% of their firearms retail stock in. They do a price match for local shop prices and my membership gets me a little more in a discount. Not to mention NRA Classes, and close enough to go every night. I'm already running out of .40 range ammo and down to 1 box of 9mm. No gun shows in RVA this month. I may have to travel up the the Nations Gun Show in Dullas.

Great looking range would really like to check that out.
Very nice shooting to. You were definitely zeroed in on the target.

Obviously with shooting like that the gloves didn't hurt, but did
they help?

I would say that they probably did help as they were tactical gloves so they allowed more friction on the weapon allowing a better grip, faster and more accurate followup shots.
