I finally got to shoot over at DSI, glad I had the opportunity to do so. What a difference from Mitchell field. But I did have 1 issue (and not the obvious short distance complaint). I was shooting pistols only and was next to a guy with an AR. The pressure that was coming off his gun was so intense I had to stop shooting and step out of the booth until he finished his magazine. Granted, he was leaning down on the bench and really leaning forward. It was just insane how much pressure was coming off it. It wasn’t enjoyable. But I made the best of it. Even my buddy next to me in the next point felt it and he told me to step into his booth which was a fraction of what I was getting directly next to him. He jumped in my spot and even he was surprised at how much you were feeling. I guess the glass dividers should have went further into the range to keep from that happening.

All in all tho it’s such a nice place to shoot at. If I lived closer Maybe id go there more often. Even if it was just for pistols.

Let me know the next time your there - I'll show up with my Wifey's Moist Nugget with the brake on it -- you want pressure -- you'll think A/R's are .22's  after 5 rounds ---- W/ 2' flames -- LOL

I was there opening day. Or is it re-opening day? Idk either way I shot there as well. Only thing I didn’t like about that place was that while the points were.....let say “cozy,” I didn’t like the bench. Not a lot of room to put anything. If they change those hard plastic tops to something that is just flat it would make a world of a difference.

for a bunch of guys that can spell Copiague, Hauppauge, Massapequa, Shinnecock, Montauk, Quoque, Wantagh, etc., what is so difficult about spelling the name of the former Army Air Force Base which was named for a former mayor of NYC who was killed during pilot training LOL ??!! (No, its NOT named after Billy Mitchell who unknowingly helped the **** )  M I T C H E L

 

So, I can type sneaky Japanese ??

I would get the guy in the point next to me at MF step away from the muzzle blast from my S&W model 19 2.5 inch Revolver when using 125 grain Remington .357 Magnum. It's good training if you do decide to shoot indoors and outdoors use good hearing protection to learn how to deal with muzzle blast.

To be honest, i get auto correct for 2 Ls. But once I spelt it with 1 L, it looked wrong.

It was the middle of the winter and I was working up loads for my new 460 Wby mag rifle. I specifically asked if it was "OK" to shoot the 460 WBY mag at the Nassau range. I was assured that it was permissible. I waited until I was the only shooter in the room and sent a few 500 grainers down range. As each round was ignited, the florescent lights went out and the auto starters had to relight them. When the light returned you could see dust and dirt drifting down from the ceiling.

 

Permissible or not, there are just some firearms that should be relegated to the outdoors. :meeting

You are one of the very few (besides me) who knows that. Did you also ready Jimmy Doolittles autobiography?
