    What to call my family's vacation property.

    My grand-father was a farmer and operated an 100 acre farm. It has not been farmed in 50 or so years.

    Keep looking for what to call it.

    It is 2 + hours away from where we live. Not to far, nice to have as an option to get away. Family farm is not the right image. Family compound is not right either. Sounds like the Kennedy Compound (and I don't think they would sleep in the 1970s trailor or old farm house). Compound sounds even more odd when you are talking about firearms (like you are in a militia or something, not that there is anything wrong with that).

    Any thoughts?

    Why not just call it "The acreage"? Or instead of compound, call it the family campground.

    How about "the property"?

    Does it have a house and stuff on it or not? If it doesn't have a house and you are going to have to camp when you stay overnight could say your going "out to camp"

    I guess it really depends on what is there and what your going to be doing with it. Sounds like a perfect place for a private range setup.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    We'd probably say "we're going to our camp" or "going to (insert name of nearest town)"
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    I'd stick with "the farm", why make it difficult?

    But it might be fun to give it some sort of name, like its some huge ranch or a brothel.

    Cool

    You could call it 'My Place'. Uh, I mean your place. Well, you know what I mean.....

    The farm works. How bout "hide-away farm" or "Sunrise farm" or something like that. Give it a real name and then use that name.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    The "farm" is a good name, and a recognition to your grandfather.

    BTW, Angola is the Louisiana State Prison and it's called the "farm" by some, because it is essentially a farm covering wide spaces of open pasture (with cattle) and plowed fields with truck crops. The inmates live in various spread out buildings, all are at different security levels. It is not a concentrated compound as you generally see.

    We always called our 88 acres, "The Farm". Now, since I retired and built our current home there, we just call it, "Home" and I do have my own range.
