A fifteen hour work day yesterday, capped a flurry of horse barn activity over the past weeks, turning the barn, into an indoor pistol range for Concealed Carry instruction for the State of Nebraska.
While the project is not completed, it is now usable.
First class hits the range in about nine hours.
Backstop is eight foot tall railroad ties, that weigh a ton. These are the most solid RR ties I have ever worked with.
They are two deep and staggered, so seams lead to the center of another RR tie. Behind that a steel wall, thin steel, a dirt hill, and a 600 acre wildlife management area.
As the CRSO of this range, I wish it were perfect, which it is not. But it should be safe as safe can be, and be a good place to qualify for a concealed carry permit.
Targets are bullet boxes, designed to stop and hold .22 LR lead and copper from ever reaching the backstop.
Traps are constructed of plywood, 3/4" horse stall mat, 6" of sand, dirt, plywood, steel.
