No shooting just yet but will be hitting the range as soon as weather breaks and arthritis permits. Got a new Blackhawk in .45 Colt and a S & W .380 to work out.

We were not at a GC range. We were at a local Gun Club we are members of. As far as I know it is legal to shoot semi auto hadguns and rifles a GC ranges a well, as long as you have a hunting liseance or range permit.

Re: Doing any handgun shooting?

It is perfectly legal to shoot a semi-auto handgun or rifle at the PGC ranges, provided you adhere to their capacity regulations when using the range.

Re: Doing any handgun shooting?

I was at the range on GL42 and saw a deputy write up 3 guys for using semi's to shoot. Perhaps it was because of rounds loaded but if memory is correct they paid $187.50 each. I may be totally wrong, has happened in the past, but when I shoot my semis I go to private ranges.

I routinely shoot my semi-auto rifles, and sometimes handguns at PGC ranges. Semi-autos are allowed, but there are limitations to how many rounds you can load.
