Pipeworks Staff Hits the Bull's Eye
For a recent after hours teambuilding activity, Sacramento Pipeworks staff, with a nod toward the new and untried, chose to test their hand at the indoor shooting range. Not surprisingly, this was the first time most had handled a firearm. The night began with the group putting a dent in the fish population at an all-you-can-eat sushi bar, after which they reassembled at The Gun Room, a safe, well-controlled indoor shooting range in Elk Grove. A gun owning staff member provided artillery that ranged from a .22 caliber pistol and .22 rifle through 9mm, .40 caliber and .45 caliber pistols. After being issued the mandatory eye and ear protection, everyone listened to the safety instructions along with tips on proper loading techniques and range etiquette. One and all were taken aback by the amount of noise and recoil the weapons produced, but after getting over the surprise were able to start punching holes in the targets. Though begun with some trepidation, surprisingly, in the end everyone had fun trying something new!
