Default Where do I shoot?

I bought 40 acres six years ago in the boondocks. Have a 200-yard range shooting from the front porch of my cabin.

I live in the country so I can pretty much shoot anywhere. My dad owns 40 acres next to me. My grandparents own 80 Acres a few miles down the road and I live 4 or 5 miles from a lake that has plenty of public land all around it. Perfect for shooting, jeeping, fishing, hunting, camping, etc.
Mississippi is the Promised Land.
BTW: does anyone here Grabble or Noodle for those of you from up north.

Public range, free and close. I'm looking at buying some land, though.

I go to the local indoor range they rent guns out and it's pretty cheap 65 dollars which includes 100 rounds of ammo, gun hire, range fees and targets once I get enough money I'll buy a gun and then it will be even cheaper

I am a member at a private out door range that is good enough to have steel plates, 25,50, 100, 600 and 1000 yard ranges but it aint cheap but it aint to far. It takes me about 20 minutes to get there. I also have some land about an hour North East of Birmingham that I can shoot on. There is also a public range at the neasest Wildlife Management area but it gets a little scary when the yahoos show up!
There is an indoor private range near me but they won't let you pick up your brass so I don't patronize them.

I usually shoot for just out side the frount door, or at least that`s where I do my load development and zero my rifles.

Most of my shooting is on land owned by timber companies, a couple of miles from home. That's where I do most of my fun shooting. When I want to get serious, I belong to a gun club, about 15 miles from home, so I don't get there too often. Annual dues are only $20.

There are a couple of public indoor ranges I go to during the winter, but they don't allow rifles.

For HR218 qualification, I go to the police range/s.


I'm presently engaged in a mouse hunt with an air rifle, around the outside of the house. Little bugger has been terrifying my wife, but he doesn't have the common decency to hold still and let me kill him. However, I'm determined and have plenty of pellets. I may even resort to bait.

Default Where don't we shoot !

I live in up state New York on 50 acres, we have our own shooting ranges at 100,200 & 500 yards. We use a concrete shooting bench under a roof in our front yard for our IBS practicing and do lots of shooting in the rain since we can't mow the lawn or paint the house. (good excuse Bruce) ! Also a 2 mile trail for hunting practice and Sporting Clays. All the guys have their own ranges at their homes or farms so there is no shortage of places to shoot, just over choice. Hunting is great all year round, Pasture Poodles in the summer, crows, coyotes,and other types of varmints. Lots of deer,turkeys and black bear in the yard also. Thanx to Senator Hillery (HA HA) we still have our guns.
