    Aerial View of our Club/Range

    Hi All-

    Was flying in my Cessna today, and snapped this photo of our range. You can see the two ATA trap ranges, and the rifle/pistol house on the right, with the yardage poles for targets. Thought I'd share it with everyone.

    Have a great Memorial Day Weekend!

    Probably one of the bullseye shooters sick of hearing a plane fly over!

    That's very funny. Actually, I was at about 2,000 feet. I think the shotgun pattern would have spread out quite a bit by then (unless they were using a real, real tight choke (LOL)!

    Of course! Even if they were aiming, and even if the shot could reach me, they would need one heck of a lead to come even close.

    I can see that, since I think this would be geometry, not algebra
