Handgun firearm practice


Though I inherited some modest .22 gauge rifles from my grandfather and have used one in shooting ranges a few times, I’ve long wanted to become more familiar with handguns, both for comfort and for perhaps future use.

Today, with a Living Social deal of a one-hour safety training seminar and shooting range practice for three people for $75, I did just that at the Gun Range above Spring Garden Street near 10th Street above the Callowhill neighborhood of Philadelphia.

After a half hour of training, I used a half hour of training time, armed with a small, simple, cheap .22 gauge Ruger handgun, with limited recoil at the request of the person with whom I attended. Good experience, I shot fairly well, am more aware and will want to practice more in the future.
