    When doing slow singles or doubles, you have time to practice placing shots inside the COM lines and you can see them easily.

You can still score yourself fairly well and the combo of thin lines and camo force you to shoot more instinctively under pressure.

    I know I did a poor job of explaining that, but try some of their targets and start the day slow and move to speed drills.... youll notice what I'm talking about.

    Is Range Day A Good Day?

    Well...
    A bad day at the range is better than a good day fishing...
    A bad day fishing is better than a good day at work...

    You do the math...

    Nice pic's...looks like a great place to shoot!

    I remember when I lived in CA many years ago. We had to plan shooting days, we would load everything into a truck and drive out in the middle of the desert. We wouldn't come home until we shot everything. Good thing we never got pulled over with all those guns and thousands of rounds of ammo, could have really scared a LEO!!! Now we just go out in the backyard, boy the things we take for granted. Your pics brought back a lot of good memories. Between shooting I would pick up brass. I still have never paid for brass. You don't find shooting areas like that back here where I live. Many of those places were being closed because folks were using them for dumps and a place to dump stolen cars. The cars made for fun plinking though!!!
    Glad you had a good safe day.

Now that it is gone, people are complaining that they have no local place to shoot... duh. Not many of the TV shooting complainers ever gave much thought to the future of our range given their abuse of the land.

    It looks like your "range" is plagued with the same guys that mine was plagued with. I'd suggest a clean up with the idea of keeping your place open to use. It could happen in your neck of the woods, too.

    We do the Good Gun Cleanup every year and this is one of the spots. It gets detroyed and littered and every year we take a day and clean out the whole place. Not much point in picking up the brass though, it never lasts long. I've seen guys up there just picking up brass and never shooting a thing.

    This is one of three outdoor areas we clean each year. Part of shooting is being responsible. :)

    Good for you guys. I have a local range just minutes from my home, but when I go visit my family up north, I now need to drive about 60 miles to go shoot anything bigger than a pellet gun (more than 1-2 times) ... it used to be about 15 miles. Yup, cleaning up after oneself is important.
