I am new to the forum and may not be in the right room, but here goes. I am what they call a plinker. My "range" is an abandoned sand pit that is fairly close to home. I will set up cans and bottles and whatnot and slam away at them with my 1911A1 (Springfield Armory, of course). Sometimes I'll bring along other guns and do the same with them, but the 1911 .45 is without a doubt my favorite. Anybody else here that shoots at a less than "formal" setting?
