BigG will become famous soon enough
I think I'm getting the frustration and thus the reason for the post but....Seems like you got it figured out at the indoor range for the last 30 minutes. Why not from the beginning?

I'll take outdoor shooting over indoors anytime. The A/C is nice when it's 100 degrees outside, but the noise, concussion, and limitations on distance on an indoor range make it my 2nd choice.
