    yes
    standard velocity .22 only.

    I need to take a picture because it's pretty funny looking, but fun.
    50ft nra smallbore targets seem to be what's used.

    I never understood the whole "standard velocity" limitations for some 22 ranges. High Vel 22 ammo isn't magically going to cause a problem in any range that can handle Std Vel 22 ammo.

    How is the ventilation in that range?

    You can shoot high velocity there, seems standard is preferred, plus it's what is provided.

    I have no idea, I didn't look around. I'd guess it's adequate as they shut down every other public(and police) basement range and the PEIPRA doesn't skimp on such things.

    I like checking out Joe Salter. Just to window shop.

    $8k and being lefty-unfriendly will keep this forever on the other side of the window for me lol. Mostly the $8k part, though..

    They usually open on the right.

    Lebel 8mm are lefty friendly.

    That one has a big safety lever to foul the left hand. I similarly do not like the TT-33 because the lanyard loop on the too-short grip similarly digs into my hand.

    Trivia - single action colt pattern revolvers are very lefty friendly as they were used in the left hand by the cavalry or, at least, held in the left hand for reloading.

    I wonder if that’s why JMB made the 1911 lefty friendly, rather than because he himself was left handed
