Feb 4 2008Turn Your Living Room Into A Shooting Range


Just the other day I was thinking how great it would be to shoot guns inside the house. Now thanks to the N Range Indoor Shooting System my dream can become reality. The systems range from $1,300 for the Standard, to $3,500 for the Executive one seen in the picture. The key to the system is the ammunition used, which requires you to use a special conversion barrel in your weapon (included). The projectiles used with the system contain no gunpowder.

The N Rangeā„¢ proprietary target Ammunition is designed to provide you with a safe low velocity, low energy, low smoke and low noise round that enables full function of your firearm and provides realistic recoil. The round is a two-primer expanding cartridge design. This proprietary system makes it possible to use a large enough primer to expand the cartridge and cycle the firearm but not affect the charge of the separate smaller primer used to propel the aluminum projectile at the necessary low velocity for safe indoor use.

Wow, it's sounding less and less fun the more I read. So I'm just going to stop now. Low noise, low velocity, low energy, no gunpowder. It's like you're not even shooting a gun anymore. Sounds about as awesome as trying to knock an empty soda can off the top of the television with a rubber band. Which is what I'm doing now. I'd actually be watching television but I accidentally shot it back when discharging weapons indoors was still fun.

1st! Loser!

You think my neighbors would hear this? Seriously? They would see me shooting at something, which would scare the shit out of them...

I've always wanted my own personal shooting range and this is a step in the "classy" livingroom setup!

I used to do that until I hit the neighbor's TV and got arrested.

just a matter of time before somebody "forgets" to change the rounds and shoots his wife's head off "by mistake"

i've always wanted some kind of gun device that would let me randomly shoot people that irritate me in tv shows. you point, shoot, and the boring actor falls over dead. i'd actually watch tv then. - heh, all actors at the start of any series or whatever would have to film a 'death by shooting' scene, so it could just be inserted whenever someone shoots them. would be good to judge public opinion of the said actors.


What? I just wait till the new phone books come out and head down to the nearest recycling box, fill up the truck, head home and voila! shooting range for maybe 45 minutes worth of work and $1 of gas.
