Hurricane, I'm back next spring (April.) In the meantime, go to any official rifle range and ask for help with it; they'll be able to help with cleaning, how to use it, etc. I usually go to Glaser Waffen in Zurich for this sort of stuff; their master gunsmith is a crazy old guy who really knows his way around.
I normally take my handguns and the Mossberg 12" to an underground private range, but that's because you cannot use anything that is not an officially issued "Ordonnanzwaffe" (i.e. police, military, or border patrol issue, and for anything but military standard issue you have to actually belong to those organizations.) The ammo is way way way cheaper though (government subsidized, har har.)
Hehe-I actually got most of my vintage firearms information as a result of reading voraciously on the subject when I was younger, though I've been an active shooter since the mid-60s. For about 10 years, I shot up a couple of thousand rounds a week (mostly handloads) through a wide variety of pistols ranging from black-powder revolvers to modern semi-autos. I've been in law enforcement for 30+ years, so I'm passingly familiar with handguns...
I don't shoot nearly as much now as when I was young and single, however!
Bikewer...For about 10 years, I shot up a couple of thousand rounds a week (mostly handloads) through a wide variety of pistols ranging from black-powder revolvers to modern semi-autos...
Moi aussi, but I was primarily shooting/loading for .45s and .357's, with some .38 and .44 mag thrown in. (No muzzle/cap weapons though.) With me, reloading made it easy to think the more I shot, the more I "saved". heh.
