I like to be able to just go out and shoot somewhere like that, wide open...nothing to worry about!
round trip but it doesn't really take long (I am a spirited driver). I don't
really care much for indoor ranges. That is one advantages of living
out west UT, AZ, NV, NM etc.
I have to drive maybe 20 min.Miles of open space and no one around.Drive 30 min. in other direction and Im in the forest.Its great
in Salt lake county where I live it is illegal to discharge firearms regardless
of desolation so we have to drive a little further. greg az is the one who has
it made, he is just minutes away from his range.
that wuold be nice(close to a range)a controled enviroment.Here in NM you have to be at least 500yrds away from any building to disharge a fire arm.Its kinda scary some times,you can walk out on the to have a smoke and hear gun shot in the distance and not know where its coming from
I bet the gunshot you hear while smoking comes from a gun.
jusk messing with ya. I envy you guys. I grew up in a small town and moved to the city for employment. I would take my guns to school so after practice we could drive to the hils (about 15 minutes) and shoot for about an hour. Now the closest indoor range is 30 minutes away and thanks to irresponsible shooters, most of the pits are closed because they did not clean up after themselves. The nearest place I can shoot outdoors is probably 90 minutes away. Or I could drive down and shoot with greasy, but even that is 2-2 1/2 hours.
I hate that shit.f@*king litter bugs.they closed down all kinds of pits and other places because people cant pick up their shit.messes it up for every body else
I hahve a roll of trash bags in my truck for when I am fortunate enough to have money and time to enjoy shooting outdoors. I pick up after people, but don't have bags big enough for cars, appliances, etc.
people around here like to haul old appliances and shit out to
the desert and shoot the hell out of them, which is fine but
haul it away when you leave. We always try and pick up our
garbage when we leave but there are many that don't.
thats cool. the world needs more people like that
One thing is it's more of a retired area, so older shooters.. and you guys know what that means.. We keep the place up pretty well.. I actually have three areas, one thats just off a ranch road, and actually does not meet the standards for distance from highway, but has been used for ever so no big deal.. Then a nicer and quieter place thats maybe 15 min as opposed to 5 min away.. Or i can just drive up our road a mile or so.. In any event i consider myself lucky on this.. I keep the range bag in Red.. With a cheap old model 10 and an old H&R .22, ammo, and i can blast away pretty much anytime i need a mental health break (Gloria says i need to go to the range more often).. lol..
The issue of clean up is so simple, ya get it or ya don't.. Don't know about you guys, but i think you could use that for a litmus test on people, and bet you'd be able to ID what sort of individual someone is as well as any other way..Maybe better..
with me and lay it out, that way all of my brass is on the tarp and
easy to pick up and funnel into an ammo box. I don't reload but
my ex bro. in law does.
thats a good idea.I hate searching for all the brass.I dont reload now,but plan on learnig
especially if you go where others shoot, that way you don't have to
pick through all of that brass.
the kids like to pick up brass when its not their turn to shoot and they will sneak it home. after doin some laundry the washer is full of the shit
It is bringing good money at the scrap yard. Hell you might even find a use for it!
yep,gotta a 5gal bucket full
