“... so I guess I need to take it to the range,,,”
The dog or the gun? :)
I have improvised a ‘range’ in my secluded front yard, about 500 feet off the road, with a high bank (hill) as a backstop. We have horses and cats, but no dog. The horses are not gun-shy and the cats stay out of target range.
Neighbors do not complain...we have a muzzle-loaders club and range a quarter mile away, so the sound of gun fire is not new around here. We also have neighbors sometimes going after varmints...mostly groundhogs...not nice things to have in pasture areas!
Hummm maybe both... The dog has never been bothered by gun fire before. We shoot skeet in my yard also along with various hand guns.
I have to think this hand canon was just a bit to much for him. This S&W 500 makes my 44mag look like a BB gun..
