Sorry to hear that, he's definetly in a better place now. Life is too short.
I was out shooting yesterday, I go to dosie pit mine rd, its kind of far(6-7miles out iron springs rd) but the dirt road its on, is grated often. Theres about 4-5 pits to shoot in as long as people arent using them already. Sunday was crowded and we had to go a bit further to find our own range, normal weekdays don't require the 4x4ing. I'm down to go again anytime, or anywhere else, just hit me up. I just barely started to get used to my g21c before I ran out of rounds. I usually go through a box of .22's to pass time, as they are cheap.
