That might be the nearest 'range', but we were looking for something a bit less organized, like an old gravel pit or cleared area with a back-stop that locals might use to "tune up" their rifles, or do some pistol work. Now, in all that 'wilderness' there is no plinking place to shoot?
Most of the real good places around here have been thoroughly trashed (by Valley Trash), not real gunners. I have personally hauled hundreds of pounds of household crap from the Knik area only to find thousands of pounds replacing it the next time I visited. Too sad, and I have lost my faith in the goodness of people--people are basically crap, and will $#!t in their own water supply!
Sorry for the rant, but I get pretty angry every time I think of that.
