○shooting is a very expensive hobby... 1000 round of 9mm cost you 3~400 dollars. Each shooting session, you can easily shoot 2~300 rounds. Plus facility charge, you are looking at 100 bucks per visit at a minimum. Shooting .22 is much cheaper.
●I was almost killed myself when shooting my fathers rifle at 19. The cocking piece was lose and backfired, luckily I was not aiming when pulling trigger. Life is good.
