Shooting Range?

Just wondering what you guys have for shooting facilities and what distances do you practice shooting? I belong to a club that has a range with dozens of bays, covered benches and targets set out to 500 yards.

Our club has several covered ranges, 100,200.500 yds. They also have an old west town built for the black powder shooters. We have skeet, and an archery walking 3-D range, all this with dues at only 50/year.

Sounds like you fellows have a good set-up. We have this place way out in the sticks. Probably 5 covered sheds, but the most distance we can get is about 100-150 yds. The guy that owns the farm has a sign up in his driveway that says "Please drop 5 bucks in the mailbox if your using the shooting range."

You guys are so lucky. The only range in Md. is 100 yards. I have to go out on one of my farms to practice longer ranges. It use to be a real pain before laser range finders. Folding picnic tables and sand bags.

lots of ranges all different types

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

That's my basic setup too. I'll use the tail gate of my truck with a chair and some old pillows and sandbags.

Me too. I target shoot off the back deck into the hill behind the pond. I did go to an indoor range the other day that was a nice set up for pistols. They had 6 stalls and the automated target lines that brought the target to you. It was a first for me I enjoyed it. I don't shoot a lot of pistols and still qualified with 92% out to 15 yards.
