I think I'm getting the frustration and thus the reason for the post but....Seems like you got it figured out at the indoor range for the last 30 minutes. Why not from the beginning?

I hear ya though, I'm old enough to now just ask right away or make something work for me if need be. I'm not proud....and proud of it!

I'll take outdoor shooting over indoors anytime. The A/C is nice when it's 100 degrees outside, but the noise, concussion, and limitations on distance on an indoor range make it my 2nd choice.
