I have two issues with which I could use help.
The first is my computer — it still has interrupted mouse input, where every so often (sometimes every few minutes, others every few seconds), the cursor freezes for as little as 1/10 and up to several full seconds, then jumping to where it would have been had the input been uninterrupted. This happens with several mice and all USB ports which are on different cards. All drivers have been updated. This makes any kind of work very difficult.
The second is the range situation: I need an outdoor range as close to Hermitage, TN as possible. Until April, I had access to a private 200 yard range in Smyrna with really photogenic environment, but that’s no longer in use. I have theoretical access to a farm range an hour North, but with the main owner no longer living there, I feel that I am wearing out my welcome with the caretaker. Also, the drive there and back adds up to two hours per visit. Indoor ranges don’t allow black powder and seldom have lanes over 25 yards. Outdoor public ranges aren’t at all suitable for photography, video or targets other than paper (such as gel for bullet testing or steel). I need to find some place where I could legally shoot and do photography, even if the range is short. I am a polite visitor and don’t leave trash behind or endanger neighbors.
Advice on both of these would be much appreciated.
